GT Nexus, Principle Software Engineer/Scrum Master/Agile Coach
March 2010 - April 2014, Oakland, CA, United States
I joined GT Nexus as a Sr Software Engineer. The company wanted to move towards Scrum. One of my first priorities was to help the engineering team effectively move to an Agile Mindset. This included setting up a proper CI/CD environment using Team City. In addition I resurrected unit testing and set this up as part of the CI/CD environment. I was responsible for training the rest of the engineering group (200 engineers) on both CI/CD and Unit testing.
When we moved to scrum, I was both a Scrum Master and an Agile coach for GT Nexus. I was responsible for initially training the engineering teams on agile practices. As a coach, I was there to help the teams including the product owner on adopting agile. I also recommended changes to adopt of better agile mindset. These recommendations were made to our senior executives and were adopted by the organization.
I was responsible for setting up and maintaining our JIRA instance that were used by the agile teams.
