Application Systems Developer

Columbia University Information Technology August 2017 - May 2020

In this role I was essentially working as a full-stack developer. I maintained and created web applications that were student, teacher and admin facing at the university. Some of these applications were integrated with the Canvas LMS which is one of the primary service offerings for group I worked in.

My group were also the service owners of many other third-party systems. As such we had numerous incoming and outgoing data pipelines which require development and maintenance. For example the Canvas LMS required all user and enrollment information from both the Student Information Systems team and the Identity and Access management team.

I led my team in pursuing best practices in software development such as testing and code reviews. I find that both of these practices are essential to writing quality and maintainable code. I seek to tame complexity and I am constantly sharpening my skill-set for doing so, as well as challenging my teammates in both technical and non-technical roles to do the same.
