Assigned to Department of Defense project as a Cloud Architect to lead the networking, logging, metric collection, and monitoring effort. Accumulated client requirements, architected solutions, and worked with engineers to automate the solutions.
Led an international DevOps team to build the company's first product. Utilized standard DevOps tools including Chef, CloudFormation, Terraform, git, and Jenkins to create an environment where we collaborated and worked toward an end goal. As the architect, product owner, and technical lead on the project, I balanced time between training resources on the team, unblocking resources on the current tasks, and planning for the future sprints.
Utilized infrastructure as code, configuration management, continuous integration, and delivery to build resilient web application deployments. Responsible for uptime, maintenance, and implementation of the production environment for 30 applications. Participated in 24/7 on-call rotation to meet business SLAs. Continuously revisited processes to build on what had already been improved. Implemented knowledge gained from working with the quality assurance team using load testing to pinpoint performance bottlenecks.
Oversaw quality of the companies integration toolset software development team which included several PHP and Java applications. Primary responsibilities included maintaining documentation and test case writing so future regression testing could be maintained by team members.
