ThoughtWorks, Multiple Agile roles (cross functional)
September 2003 - December 2005, San Francisco, CA, United States
ThoughtWorks is a leading US Agile App Dev consultancy. I worked there for a little over 2 years, applying my product development and management experience to consult to clients, introducing agile development methods and delivering applications using agile methods. I worked as an Agile Project Manager, business analyst, agile team member, and client principal for several clients. I worked closely with ThoughtWorks' distributed global leadership team. My clients included the Gap, McGraw Hill, Countrywide Financial, Novell, Barclays and WYSE, among others. I taught other ThoughtWorks and client team members how to develop using agile methods in applied project environments. Technologies included Java, .NET, Oracle, and a variety of open source technologies for unit, functional and performance test automation, continuous integration and automated deployment. I took a deep dive into Agile ALM and helped Collabnet and Source Forge Enterprise product teams conceptualize their ALM products and bring them to market.
