    Software Development Engineer II

    Key expert for the entire product team on integration of the Analytics Platform System with the hardware. • Key team contributor accountable for the distributed setup of the entire appliance stack from bare servers, OS installation/configuration, storage configuration, and distributed database configuration. • Designed and implemented system that allowed data-driven automated configuration of SAN storage across multiple SAN types. This replaced an error-prone manual system that could take multiple person days, with a reliable system that took zero person-time, and as little as 30 minutes of automated time. • Created system that provided the ability to add support for new SAN devices as needed via a documented API/plugin, without the need to alter the core setup code. This allowed configuration changes to be made via simple xml changes that took seconds, instead of recoding configuration that could take hours. • Project lead to servicing that allowed the product to service both the SQL Server and the Hadoop portion of the product. Personally authored the design specifications for the change and coordinated the implementation of the change with three developers on our team. This avoided the need for costly and error-prone patching and updates for the Hadoop portion of the product, a manual process that could take days. • Consistently handled highest quantity of customer issues and achieved highest level of satisfaction. • Led and coordinated cross-team collaboration that updated the system stack across three hardware platforms, involving four engineers and a program manager. In addition, handled the coordinated integration of the updates into the mainline code, one platform at a time, with zero integration issues.
