Senior Application Developer
In an environment that’s constantly changing, the cutting edge is always changing. And in a race with so many people running to grasp at what’s next you need someone who is ready to run that race. Who is ready to learn the newest tech and take risks when others aren’t. And that’s what you get here. Adaptability and a strong platform of core languages lend the framework that make this particular developer. Add that on top of years of experience working with and managing others, you don’t just get one person who is driven towards novel concepts done right. But a way to spread these new concepts to an entire team.

Brunner, Senior Application Developer — Pittsburgh, PA July 2017 – Present
As part of Brunner’s BHive Lab Innovation department, I’ve worked on a variety of projects that ranged from both enterprise level software platforms and down to prototype web apps. Primarily a C# shop, I have steadily reinforced my understanding of Windows based development in an agile-like environment with both Dot Net Standard frameworks and the newer Dot Net Core frameworks. I also regularly tackled frontend tasks both myself and with another developer who worked primarily as a frontend engineer. Our working relationship meshed well enough together that our two man approach was eventually adopted as a standard within the lab and our team structure was altered to form teams to attempt and mimic our methods. Less than a year into my role, I became the point person for my application’s production issues and have, on more than one occasion, saved the company over $200k in fees by resolving potential data breaches before they occurred. This also is what lead towards my growing into the role of senior developer, as I adopted more and more responsibilities; to the point where I was responsible for maintaining oversight on our team’s progress within a sprint and communicating effectively with our client. This also meant that I was regularly consulted to make design and approach decisions that would help shape the product and it’s features. Additionally, I also took on the responsibility of maintaining our branches and publishing our code updates and accomplished such through both manual iis deployments and automated pipelines via Azure Dev Ops.

Assistant Store Leader, GameStop — Pittsburgh, PA — 2012 – 2016
Oversaw general store operations with focus on a customer first outlook. This prioritized building customer rapport via discussion to find the best solutions that were tailored to the individual. In addition to this I was the point of contact for a number of event organizers with a near by college and would be the liaison between them and the store for events. This included, midnight release events, gorilla advertising, college specific events, etc. It was also my responsibility to follow store performance metrics closely in order to analyze and disseminate this information to other employees. Regularly, this would also include one to one training in order to promote an understanding of how one could affect their own metrics as well as how this impacted the store as a whole. Goals were also a large part of these conversations, both personal and store based. Larger looks at these numbers helped the general manage and myself facilitate store layout changes. It was my sole responsibility to oversee regular shifts in marketing materials. And it was through a combination of the above responsibilities and focuses that I drove sales of new releases and created one of the best environments for new releases in our district.
