Senior Software Architect & Operations Manager ҉ EPI Workforce Solutions, Phoenix, AZ 02/20 – present

Designed and Built MARCA – a robust AWS based Operations and Resource Management suite for very-large scale mail-in balloting production implemented by the largest ballot producer in the United States. MARCA is successfully coordinating changing staff, enormous machinery, machine operators and personnel administrators despite consistent last-minute scheduling changes. MARCA is a web based solution founded on fast DynamoDB-Java workgroup lookup routines which result in surprisingly scalable performance. The suite coordinates communications, urgent notifications, reports, analyses, staff, workgroups, operations, training & non-human resources. Technologies are AWS based. Browser front end, Java back-end, DyamoDB, PHP, Twilio.

Senior Software Architect ҉ Western Neighborhoods Project – A Non Profit, San Francisco, CA 08/21 – present

Rescued, re-designed, re-factored and re-wrote a large and failing recklessly developed membership/POS system. Privacy and security issues were eradicated. All membership processing errors were fixed – most of them critical jeopardizing the organization. Content creation was simplified and enhanced with WordPress backend customization. Message board forum was secured using a unique verification process. Email inbox overflow was solved with periodic culling and forwarding of emails rather than relying on user to delete or archive. Technologies are LAMP heavy with continuous 3rd party integration.
