Engineering Manager leading cross-functional software engineering teams



Joined Compono in 2018 as the fourth developer working as a Senior Full Stack Developer, building job posting and candidate hiring web application with React, GraphQL, TypeScript and Node micro-services running in Kubernetes on AWS.

Took a Lead Full Stack Developer role in 2020 and formed a new team to create an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to extend the feature set of the intelligent hiring product. Introduced agile methodologies to the product team and implement a shift-left approach to quality.

Promoted to Engineering Manager in 2021, I trained a replacement lead developer for my team and began overseeing three product teams. I was involved in all aspects of hiring, mentoring, career development, and engineering process improvements. Lead the formation of a new team to tackle a significant strategic software re-architecture of a core business function.
