Switched to Product Owner at the end of 2018 and managed the development infrastructure in AWS, managing efforts to move to Docker containers and Kubernetes, and improving Continuous Integration pipeline for better performance, ease of use and scalability.
Maintained legacy ActiveX components (IE) and managed the project to expand this to other browsers and port them to OSX, which gave the product a modern facelift and competitive advantage.
Greatly improved performance of the Privileged Access Management solution and ensured the proper testing for this was in place.
Worked With: C, Python, C++, Bash, Debian Build Toolchain, Autotools
In charge of creating a new Linux-based platform and applications for the flagship product; the iMirror.
Designed the architecture for a new interactive Advertising Platform and product showcase, which clients ended up using as part of their sales process.
Responsible for the configuration, theming, development and maintenance of client's websites (PHP and Python) and web servers (Apache, Nginx, MySQL, Drupal).
Production and staging server administration.
Worked With: C++, C#, Autotools, Java, Maven, Hibernate
Maintained and incorporated new requirements on the legacy POS System, entirely written in C++.
Created an embedded Linux OS to run on the IBM machines that had the POS for communicating sales to head office.
Architected and developed a couple applications in J2EE for improving company processes.
After this, I moved to a C++ developer role at a multinational fashion retail company to maintain their homegrown Point of Sale system (running on MS-DOS 5!) and decided to start my own company on the side. Both things progressed very well. At my day job I ended up moving some functionality away from the POS system into a J2EE platform so we didn't have to implement that in the newly-acquired POS and managing the integration with a Taiwanese third party for fiscal compliance to open our first store in Taiwan. While on the side I focused my efforts in providing Open Source solutions running on Linux and integrating with multiple hardware like RFID readers, touch screens and barcode and 2d scanners. All of this came to an end as I decided to move to Canada, although I still worked on the Taiwan project for a couple more months.
In 2016 I joined Benevity as a software developer for the web front end adding new features and bringing the solution up to web accessibility standards. Later on started a team with other two developers and grew up to 9, focused on keeping the solution performing well under heavy traffic. Finally switched to become a Product Owner for that team and the Tools & Infrastructure team, where we are focusing on leveraging more of the AWS stack and providing tools and development environments on the cloud using Kubernetes.
