Biography

I got a Master degree in Software Engineer and several years of experience in designing and developing a wide range of different types of Web Applications. I have experience and skills that allow me to succeed as part of any multidisciplinary work group in designing, developing and implementing software applications. I also have experience coordinating development teams. Most of the projects I have participated in as a developer or leader were based in a web platform, but focused on several domains. These applications included: budget management, reports generation, lottery, social networks, and product price management.

Work experience

Megaport, Software Architect
March 2016 - Present, Brisbane, Queensland, AU
- Software architect. I've been in charge of major architectural changes in one of the two main systems: the Megaport API. The company grew fast but the system (a monolithic application) was behind the dynamics of the company and structure. It had to be broken up into several micro-services and evolve to a *service-based* architecture. I've developed three satellite applications (so far) that serve the main one using synchronous (ReST api) and asynchronous (message-based) communication. I've also been supporting, improving and maintain the system, adding new features and improvements. Finally, I also developed an email delivery system which keeps track of bounced emails and users statistics (emails opened, clicked links, etc). - Training. I introduced functional programming in the team by preparing training sessions using Scala. The training lasted for many months. I also trained the whole company staff in Agile and Scrum. As a result, many good practices have been introduced in other teams unrelated to software development, and the development team embraced agile development as well. Some of the technologies I've used are: Java (v8), Scala, Scalaz, Spring, Spring boot, JPA, Docker, Argonaut, Spray, Slick3, AWS (S3, SES), Rabbit MQ, Postgres, Swagger2, Mockito, Specs2, AngularJS, Git, Jenkins, Gitlab.

Ephox, Software Egineer

I was part of the services team. I worked in two different projects: WebRadar and Textbox.io. WebRadar (http://ephox.com/webradar) is a reporting application specially designed for the IBM Web Content Management (WCM). I was part of the team that modified the application in order to provide support for Virtual Portals and advance text search and replace using ElasticSearch as the core technology. I also develop different services for Textbox.io (http://textbox.io/). The main technologies used in those services were Scala, Scalaz, Spray, Argonaut, Slick and PostgreSQL.
