Software Engineer - Google
Apr 2016 - Present
I've been Working in Google's Irvine office doing analytics for the Google Cloud Platform.
Most of my work has been on internally-facing infrastructure to improve the reliability of data pipelines that collect and aggregate Google Cloud user data. Some of my projects have focused on scalability, monitoring/alerting, and data privacy/anonymization.
Software Intern - Tyco
Jun 2014 - Sept 2014 & Jun 2015 - Sept 2015
During first internship with Tyco, I was tasked with modifying a software debugging tool used to test if their devices had been set up and were functioning correctly. My modifications made connecting to this system a much quicker process. I made the tool put less strain on the network by collapsing a number of open UDP sockets into one TCP connection. I had to work with existing code that was written in C and Java.
The second summer that I worked for Tyco, my job was to port the debugging tool from the previous summer to an Android platform. I'm now proficient in UX design for Android and familiar with the limitations of the Android platform.
Help Desk Assistant - OIT
May 2013 - Jun 2015
While at UCI, I took a part time job at the University's IT Help Desk. I know a lot about troubleshooting and finding the root of a problem by process of elimination. This job helped me learn the art of avoiding jargon and explaining problems, so that someone not as tech savy can still fix it over the phone. This job took an unreasonable amount of patience, but I always felt content knowing I helped someone today.
IT Consultant - Sunday Friends
Dec 2011 - Jan 2013
I was contacted on an as-needed basis with tasks like helping a user export her saved emails from an older version of Outlook to a new computer. I've taken apart multiple non-functioning desktops, isolated which parts were still working, and built a working PC needed for one of the employees.
