Data Aggregation Engineer BrightFox (2019 - 2020)
Brightfox is an online healthcare staffing platform that cuts out the staffing agency middlemen within the healthcare industry. As a Data Aggregation Engineer, it was my responsibility to design & develop BrightFox's creative data-extraction and transformation application. The application uses a modular design of systems that are completely independent of one another, ensuring the failure of one does not affect the success of the others.
Currently this application processes over 30 unique healthcare systems, which brings in the data from hundreds of thousands of hospital staffing positions across the nation into the BrightFox database.
Due to the volitile nature of any startup company, I had to be ready to pivor my focus at a moments notice, based on the outcome of our weekly team meetings and the success or faulure of our recent efforts.
Unfortunately, my time with BrightFox was cut short due to the economic impact that the 2020 Corona virus had on the United States.

Application Software Developer - WannaTrain (2018 - August 2019)
Wanna Train is a wellness community, where anyone can meet up and workout by simply sending a “Wanna Train" invitation.
As one of the developers of Wanna Train I was responsible for implementing feature-requests, design specifications, bug resolutions, clearly communicating between the various departments of WannaTrain - be it the Testing Department, Administration or internally within the Development Team, all the while ensuring my code meets standards & has been thoroughly vetted before submission.
WannaTrain is unique in the fact that the development team is not based in the United States - or even the company itself! The team consists of a group of Digital Nomads spanning a number of countries and timezones.
Working here taught me the importance of being a self-sustaining and accountable developer; because if I ran into a problem at 9:00 AM EST, I had no one but myself to help solve it until around 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM EST.
Similarly, if some of my code does not pass review, I would not know about it until a couple of days later, due to timezone constraints, potentially missing deadlines.
This means that I had to be certain that I wrote code that will hold up to specifications & expectations.
Co-Founder & Lead Developer - SocialPnt (2017 - 2019)
SocialPnt is a location-based social media app, that brings users together through pnts (points) in time. Users can discover what is going on around them, stay in touch with the people who matter the most and capture & relive every moment again and again.
I built SocialPnt from the ground up, learning on the way what it really takes to create a end-to-end mobile application from start to finish. SocialPnt covers six different programming languages, has over 45 service providers, 84 individual pages, countless components and numerous technological integrations.
SocialPnt has been my pride and joy for a little more than a year now. It started with whiteboard drawings, copious amounts of chicken-scratched notes and lots caffeine. It then moved to Sketch design mockups, proof of concepts, technology selection, and about six months of solo development & testing.
SocialPnt is live on the IOS App store, but there isn't a day that goes by, that I don't think of new ways I could improve upon it. Optimizations, new implementations, integrations and a better tomorrow for everyone who uses the app, is always my goal.
SocialPnt was a daunting task that I wasn't confident I would be able to complete in the beginning, but eventually - I did. And I cannot tell you how great that feels.
As a Developer at UC I was responsible for the technical direction of projects throughout the development lifecycle. This included keeping thorough documentation on projects status, development and team work-ability.
I was on the ground floor when it came to re-designing the Office of Research website, a project that I pushed for almost immediately upon coming into my role. I spent a lot of days in meetings, with every department head discussing their needs, and how we could implement them in a way that made it easy to find any information that you were looking for.
