Engineering Practice Lead

Industrie&Co

February 2016 – May 2020 Sydney

Delivering faster, easier, scalable and secure software solutions for start-ups, disruptors and technology companies, whilst helping make our engineering practice the best in the world. I&Co is a technology venturing company, forging partnerships with our clients to deliver cutting-edge solutions.

Engineering is in my DNA, with a long history of polyglot software development (Java, Python, Go, etc), cloud-focused devops and agile practices, and I bring experience and near-limitless enthusiasm to the difficult problems facing organisations and entrepreneurs today.

I have completed short and long-term engagements, primarily in Python and Java, with clients including the ASX, Atlassian, CompareAsia and Westpac Databank.

 
 
 
 
 

Senior Software Lead

RoZetta Technology

Applying effective analysis, design, programming and testing skills to produce software systems, while assisting with the technical direction of projects.

As a senior software engineer and lead, I have been responsible for requirements analysis, design and implementation of distributed, cloud-based (Amazon AWS) software systems, mostly in Python. I have also line-managed four technical resources, and provided technical guidance and leadership across the life of a project.

 
 
 
 
 

Forward Deployed Engineer

Palantir Technologies

July 2012 – November 2014 Canberra

Be agile, adaptive, technically brilliant – and deliver.

As a forward-deployed engineer, it was my job to solve “the world’s hardest problems”:

  • Identify, scope and deploy sophisticated deployments
  • Develop data integrations, customisations to the Palantir platform and entirely new services using the best possible technology available
  • Independently break down and solve complex client problems with little direction

I have built and run a deployment all the way from the initial scoping to hardware installation, system integration, custom code and ongoing maintenance, using a combination of Java, Oracle, Elasticsearch, Cassandra and Gradle.
