Work experience

January 2011 - Present Affiliated Computer Services, a Xerox company

Technical Lead

Provided technical direction and tasking for a team of up to six developers depending on the project. Responsibilities included working with the Business Admins to write and approve technical requirements, writing detailed design documents, and tasking developers, all while working within a condensed schedule with many moving parts.

Key Achievement:
In addition to the above technical lead role, I also led and developed off the side of my desk on a product that allows e-prescribing of medications over the internet. The product integrated with our companies existing web services to allow for easy patient lookups, drug formulary searches, drug/drug interactions, and complex business rules based on client. As part of this project I worked with a 3rd party vendor that processes electronic prescriptions via a web service call utilizing XML to successfully send the prescriptions and become certified as a product.

June 2009 - January 2011 Wellpoint / Anthem / HMC (Glen Allen, VA)

Senior Software Developer

Using Asp.net, C# and Sql Server, I created a custom intranet solution for management and leaders to efficiently view, track and reconfigure thousands of file feeds per month. This solution contained multiple online and real-time reports utilizing custom filters, charts and graphs and specialized reporting methods for each team and users needs.


Not only did this project tie the reporting into user configurable requested date ranges but also related logged in users to relevent queues such as 3rd party workflow tools and an in-house ticketing system. All of this was displayed using a graphical user front end experience that was both easy to use and professional in appearance

Key Achievement:
I was hired into this position initially when it only had funding for a 6 week project. The in-house development team had estimated 6 months or more to complete this project and had rejected some pieces of the requirements as impossibilities with their current framework. I was able to complete all requirements of development and stand up an initial release within those 6 weeks thus leading to a contract extension and eventually full-time employment. This application led to cost savings for the department and eventually morphed into a much larger enterprise wide initiative to have this level of intranet reporting and functionality across the WellPoint organization.

June 2005 - June 2009 Wachovia Securities (Glen Allen, VA)

Technical Lead / Sr Software Developer

Using Asp.net, C# and Oracle 9i, I was involved in design, development & integration of 3 different internal web application within the corporate intranet. Utilized the existing Wachovia Custom Framework, via a Layered Service Application Pattern. In addition to ASPX and C# work, these projects demanded a significant knowledge in JavaScript, DHTML, Ajax, custom front-end validation techniques, and advanced experience using Asp.net controls.

Created standalone Custom Control in Asp.net to be used for data paging within the ASPX pages that decreases page load times, takes advantage of custom paging within ASP.Net, and reduced overall development effort on the front-end.

Another project involved SQL conversion from SQL Server to Oracle 9i, as well as creating all the code layers necessary for the application. This was a very large project spanning hundreds of front end pages and thousands of backend classes.

Fully implemented the Java Session objects via servlets to create a unique, dynamic environment on the web to accept these applications. One month after completion of this project our Internet sales were up by over 400%. Calls were received complementing us on our loan application and it has enhanced the company's ability to market the websites to new affinity partners. Written up in company newsletter.
