Achievements include implementing SCRUM as a Team Lead and then aiding related teams to adopt. Positive outcomes that almost immediately manifested themselves included actual fortnightly releases (and stable ones), easier interteam communication, better transparency for stakeholders and less need for overtime, happier even-paced work environment.

Senior Software Engineer
Dealt with the politics of a large company and altered a custom built system so that it would scale. I enjoyed the mobile application development aspect of this role as well as some of the service layer challenges involved in scaling the applications. Interacting closely with third party products and end users also gave me a great incite into client relationship management.
