Software EngineerOct 2011 - Aug 2013

I have been in charge of all api design, development and uptime for about 2 years, prior to that I worked a lot with Backbone.js making really snappy and "Web 2.0" apps. I am a full stack developer in all its glory: there isn't a single thing I don't touch, from SCSS(CSS) to configuring apache to playing nice with nginx.

Currently, I am in charge of a dozen plus servers. I am ultimately responsible for all maintenance and deployments.

Issue Based MediaMiami, Fl

Software EngineerJun 2011 - Sep 2011

I did a lot of work with Java, making pretty CSS forms that customers would fill out so we could spam them later. I was mostly creating single page apps that would entice the customer into giving us all of their preferences along with their email so we could sell it later.

Team 2 LLCMiami Beach, Fl

Lead Software EngineerDec 2010 - Jun 2011

I was involved in a tiny start up that failed to "launch". I was working as the sole engineer scrapping a lot of sites for content, thinking: this what google is indexing and rating us on. I learnt a lot of about scrapping in general, how to make it fast and scalable and what not to do with SEO.

Miami Web StaffMiami Beach, Fl

QAT/ Software EngineerJul 2010 - Nov 2010

I was originally hired in a QA capacity and quickly developed my python skills and started coding. Unfortunately, I didn't spend a whole lot of time here because they downsized shortly after I arrived.

I did a lot of selenium tests and a lot of clicking around trying to figure out what would break on IE7 and other 'quirky' browsers. I did a lot of python debugging and learnt to use `pdb` quite well.

Webtron Inc.Miami, Fl

Software EngineerFeb 2008 - Jul 2010

This was my first official "programmer" job; this is where I learnt and fell in love with Javascript. This was-and still is-a small development boutique, making very specialized software for their customers primarily in Coldfusion and .NET. I worked on a lot of legacy applications and new projects where I did most of the work ranging from record management for lawyers to front facing consumer retail.

Fix My PC Inc.Miami, Fl

Computer TechnicianAug 2007 - Feb 2008

A lonely job for a poor college student. Remember the Windows XP viruses? I do, I was that nerdy kid with classes working behind the counter that did all the dirty work. I diagnosed and repaired all sorts of things: desktops, laptops, xbox, power supplies, laptop screens, laptop backlights, .. etc, a lot of work for little pay. Remember how the antivirus wouldn't remove the virus AFTER it was installed? Well, I was the guy in regedit removing those entires that would load the virus and NOT reformat your hard drive.

ABOUT ME

I'm extremely down to earth and have an immense sense of humor. I don't smoke, I don't drink, if my background was any cleaner than it's now - you wouldn't be able to tell if I've ever existed. I've been told on several occasions that I have no life - to which I always reply: I'm a gamer, I have lots of lifes. I'm well educated and well informed (reddit and hackernews)
