Software Engineer

kajeet

Currently leading an agile scrum team of about 5 developers who's main focus is designing, building, and managing a pair of enterprise Java applications.

I worked with my team to maintain our customer-facing web portal, including deployments, database migrations, and emergency bug fixes. I also worked on the design and implementation of new features, such as featureManager and our generic promotions system, both of which I acted as lead developer on.

I played a major role in supporting and extending our Care Desktop, which is an application used by our customer service representatives to address cutomer issues.

I led a project to build our internal Operations Desktop. The application was built using Ruby on Rails and integrated with several of our third-party vendors to automate and/or simplify numerous tasks that were previously tedious, time-consuming, and error prone.
