Experience

Sky Logo

July 2016 – Present

Software Engineer

At Sky, I worked to deliver web experiences that helped customers to manage their account. Journeys I built with my Team include Billing, Payments, Account Management, and Upsell.

My team's primary focus was to reduce call center load, and increase goal achievement. We employed various optimization techniques such as multivariate testing and user labs. This resulted in significant KPI improvements during my time at Sky.

I was also a primary contributor to many of Sky's JavaScript development frameworks. This includes back-end GraphQL APIs, and front-end frameworks focused around React. I also built tooling in technologies such as Vue, to aid other developers and testers.

My team was also responsible for the maintenance of a host of legacy applications. Working on these required working with technologies such as Ruby, Java, Elixir and Groovy. We also managed to deprecate and replace many of them with Microservices frontend by GraphQL.
