Epic
Software Developer and Team Lead
2013 - 2021
Tools: M/MUMPS, C#, Visual Basic
Epic is where I truly became a software developer. I learned several best practices for software development and management. I held several roles while here including a team lead of teams of 10 people or less. The only detriment of the role was the relatively esoteric technologies used which aren't used commonly in the software industry as a whole. I started primarily a frontend developer in the note taking application and ended primarily in backend software development for the interoperability team.

  • Completed a stalled project to deliver customer requested note taking feature
  • Lead project and small teams for new functionality and application maintenance
