At Odondo, I took on the challenge of fixing their Django monolith and boy, did I deliver! With the COO by my side, I mapped out a plan for success and dove headfirst into the code. Despite the headaches and obstacles, I kept my cool and kept cranking out top-notch software.
To revamp their system, I built an anti-corruption layer around the old code and slowly but surely transitioned to a shiny new system. The result? Odondo had a reliable Fast API backend system utilizing AWS CloudWatch, Lambdas, and SQS. On the frontend, I created three React SPA applications tailored to each customer type that Odondo serviced. And to make sure everything ran like a well-oiled machine, I implemented rock-solid Github actions CI/CD pipelines and terraform modules.
At LMS, I became the hero of a front-end project that was in dire need of rescuing. With a looming deadline and a junior developer who was in over their head, I stepped in to save the day without bruising any egos.
While we couldn't implement every improvement we wanted, we were able to get the project back on track and deliver on time. By the time I left LMS, the junior developer had grown more confident and competent, and the front-end solution was in great shape. It was scalable, maintainable, and ready to handle whatever the business threw at it.
When I joined Koodoo, I was one of the first four developers to join the team, and was excited to take on the role of Lead Software Engineer. Together with the team, we developed a cutting-edge microservices system that leveraged Koodoo's expertise in the mortgage market - they had recently pivoted from other mortgage-related ventures after I joined their former company, Dynamo.
At Koodoo, I spent my days crafting and refining the software architecture, while also taking the lead on its implementation. Alongside my team, we constantly worked to level up our skills and knowledge, chipping away at the software to make it better every day. The result was a system that was as sharp as a three-piece suit when it hit the board rooms of our potential customers. We moved fast and got things done, all while taking care to ensure we were building a secure future for ourselves.
During my time at RightIndem as Principal Developer, I was responsible for leading a team of five developers on a greenfield project alongside the two other teams in the company. The goal was to build an application using cutting-edge technology that was extensible, maintainable, and delivered on time. To achieve this, we chose to build an event-driven CQRS-based system, which allowed for a sleek and performant user experience.
In addition to making key decisions around the architecture and ensuring timely delivery, I also managed several aspects of the project, including hiring new staff, mentoring and developing current staff, and maintaining team morale and productivity. Overall, it was a challenging yet fulfilling experience, and I'm proud of the results we achieved as a team.
