PHP Developer

I was brought on to help in the third version release of a federally mandated system that NASA researchers use to get approval to release their research to the public. Built on top of restrictive vendor software I found ways to get around it and solve years long outstanding bugs or issues. I accomplished this by moving logic out of the vendor to client side JavaScript and replacing all synchronous data look-ups with dynamic AJAX calls through a .NET proxy to a PHP based REST API I wrote. I was able to create leaps in efficiency by consolidating features that were previously broken up in multiple sites and by creating automatic processes that no longer needed constant user attention.

Full Stack Developer / Systems Engineer

I was their sole programmer for almost two years after my hiring supervisor was let go and I assumed his duties. I converted an old system for handling all clients, sales and business details from .NET and MSSQL into PHP and MySQL along with Redis for a few tasks. This included building and maintaining both the public facing and private websites, the relational databases using Amazon Web Services, the dedicated server with WHM and cPanel on CentOS 5 then Ubuntu Server, writing the automated cron tasks, creating (from scratch) a flexible REST API for clients, then seamlessly performing the switch from the old system to the new one without any changes to how the clients interfaced with U-PIC.
