Charles – A senior software engineer in QA and Test
Areas of Expertise: Software development. Particularly Windows development using either C++, C#, or Python.
Here is what made you stand out to your former employer:
1.) I use design documents besides writing software. I create these documents before writing a single line of code. This idiom enables me to keep track of the scope of the project, solutions/strategies used, and that what I will produce matches with what is expected by the client(s).
2.) I constantly strive to improve processes. For example at my former employer (Intel Corporation), I emailed quite a few ideas to management to improve the current work environment at Intel from improving build systems, to adopting release strategies to make “releasing to the customer” a much simpler process than it was. I also had some ideas for creating test environments (that mimicked the customer environment) without doing a full release in the hope of catching issues quicker than before.
Key Accomplishments: I am an expert Windows developer. I am self-taught on C# and Python.
Technical Skills: C++, C#, Python, Windows Sockets Programming (WinSock 2.0), Visual Studio IDE.
Fun Fact: I am a self-taught classical pianist. I have a YouTube channel with my classical work.
Availability: Immediate Contract, Contract to Hire and Direct Hire opportunities.
Locations: Reside in Sunnyvale, CA.
