    • Senior Software EngineerPointman  — Mar 2017 - May 2020 — Buffalo, NY
      • Designed and built Pointman's Payment integration from scratch, which involved scoping out requirements, writing a cordova plugin to interact with Mobile Payment SDKs, writing API wrapper libraries in Node.js, .NET platforms & integrating with multiple web and cordova apps.
      • Improved the team's ability to rapidly deliver new product features by replacing Pointman's legacy UI build process with a fast, standardized CLI process using Node.js and webpack. This also involved writing custom codemod scripts for Pointman's codebase, with jscodeshift.
      • Spearheaded the migration from AngularJS to Vue.js by creating a "Vue base" inside the app and leading a 2-member team to migrate an existing feature. This allowed the team to iterate quickly and write bug free code.
      • Automated deployment processes by setting up CI/CD pipelines for Pointman's Web, Mobile and API projects using Azure DevOps, which empowered the team to build and ship features faster than ever.
      • Fostered a mindset of learning and collaboration by mentoring new engineers, performing in-depth code reviews and leading pair programming sessions.
      • Modernized Pointman's legacy application by systematically rewriting critical parts of it to be more resilient, faster & easier to maintain, resulting in a more stable user experience with reduced bugs.
