At the Office of Student Financial Aid, I led a team of students in managing over 10 high traffic websites for the university and developing web applications with React and...more Laravel. This unique position had no full-time technical supervisor, which allowed us to take ownership of engineering decisions. During my time there, I hired six student employees, and I also introduced GitLab CI/CD to streamline our development process, completely eliminating time spent on repetitive manual tasks.
Transformed a small development team from one that commits to master and deploys over FTP to one that values quality code through testing, pair programming, and automation. This team evolved its hiring process to seek out the most qualified candidates, and team members have expressed that they learn more in this position than through coursework.
