Title: Software EngineerRole: Backend .NET engineer

As this role is within a small startup, I have been given opportunities to work closely with multiple different departments which includes but is not limited to:

DevOps/Platform Engineering to develop and deliver GitOps practices within the development team. I have also worked closely with the team to setup internal development environments allowing other developers to integrate new features more confidently into the platform. This has also allowed me to work with Kubernetes.

The Data team talking to them and understanding what they need from the platform so that they can produce effective report for regulators and clients.

System architects researching new technologies and ways of integrating them into the platform such that it can be more effectively worked in moving forward without being tied to older design patterns. I also fill in for the architect in external meetings if he is not available.

  • Key Points
    • Working within a large .NET codebase to deliver new features
    • Setup testing and full CI/CD pipeline within the core projects
    • Worked closely with DevOps/Platform engineering
    • Worked with system architects being trusted to fill in when architect was unavailable
    • Worked with clients directly solving technical integration issues

Env Tree

A simple system to help facilitate the sharing of .env like files between team members and production deployments.
