Software Engineer, 2012 - present
Partek, Inc.; St. Louis, MO
Key contributions to Partek's Java web application, Partek Flow, include adding support for third party tools, improving prediction algorithms, and profiling backend C++ software to optimize performance and reduce RAM requirements. During my time at Partek, I have expanded my knowledge of object oriented programming by effectively using design patterns to improve code maintainability. Other responsibilities include fielding customer questions and providing customer support.
C++ Software Developer, 2009 - 2012
Engineering Software Research and Development, Inc.; St. Louis, MO
My primary responsibilities at ESRD, Inc. included maintaining our C++ COM API, which is the critical infrastructure that enables .NET user interfaces and Excel VBA scripts to communicate with C++ and legacy FORTRAN software. This requires me to have a general understanding of our products at all levels. Typical work flow included receiving a defect report, writing a failing regression test in C#, and implementing a fix in our C++ COM and lower level abstractions ensuring all regression tests pass.
Other responsibilities involve supporting interfaces to third party libraries (such as Hoops and MeshSim), maintaining a legacy C++ code base, and helping out anywhere else as needed.
