Software Development Engineer - Catalog Vending
I'm currently working on the Prime Video - Catalog Vending team. This team is in charge of vending out data to customer facing teams (iPhone, Android, etc) from the part providers who give us video data (HBO, NBC, CBS, etc). Our team is uniquely positioned to always be impacted and have a voice in all major projects in the Prime Video pipeline. I've been fortunate enough to fix many issues seen in the architecture of our team; these issues have ranged from logical issues in the code to design failures that were creating multiple critical issues to our customers. I've learned a great deal about design practices, scoping large projects, efficient and secure testing, scaling services, and even developing other engineers as they join.

I used C#, SQL, and .NET to help transport data from an old server to the new data management system. I transported literal data using SQL from database to database, I programmed the online website using C# and ASP.NET to repair broken functions and I introduced a data organization tool called a CMDB, Configuration Management Database. It allows the mapping of servers and databases and lets programmers keep track of their configuration items.
