Senior full-stack web developer for CUNA Mutual Group focused on the TruStage brand (an insurance provider).
In our most recent project, I took a lead role in rewriting the TruStage website for both sales and policy servicing on the Sitecore CMS hosted in Azure. We incorporated principles from clean (onion) architecture, helix architecture, domain-driven design, command/query responsibility segregation, and service-oriented architecture.
Additionally, I established our first automated build and release pipelines, helped teams transition from waterfall to Scrum, led two geographically distributed development teams, and advocated test driven development.
Full-stack web developer for Pensacola Christian College focused on the Abeka brand (a global textbook publisher and distributor).
During my time here I developed a website for the launch of Abeka Testing (a test proctoring service), migrated the Abeka website from an Oracle backend to Dynamics NAV, wrote several shared libraries and services, created dozens of intranet applications, and minimized overall load on databases and web services by 86% through caching.
