Software Engineer Resume Sample (Hired) (Full Text Version)

Conner Aiken

Address: Kent, Washington
Date of birth: 1993-02-06
Phone number: contact hidden


Hello! I am Conner and I am a software engineer working on web applications and web infrastructure. I have been developing professionally for 5 years but tinkering since a kid. I started in tech with internships, freelance services and part time positons during college.

I have a bit off a diverse job history. I have had positions in help desk, graphic/web design, web app development and sysadmin/devops. I can help everywhere in the stack and I love wearing multiple hats to an extent. Although, I do think my most strongest skills are in software engineering and server administration.

Most of my positions utilized agile-like development processes using JIRA/TFS. I am also a certified scrum master with ScrumAlliance.

A day in my life may consist of: prepping web art, fixing some front-end bugs, adding an API endpoint, dockerizing an application, database design, configuring a unit or ui test library, setting up a build or deployment plan, provisioning a test tier machine or feature work when I am lucky.

In addition to full stack development, I also working on a lot of dev-ops tasks. I have helped set up a lot of our unit, ui and build/deploy plans. Also other process improvement tasks like JIRA transition workflows, slack notification services and BitBucket/JIRA/GitHub API services. We utilize ansible for our automation, bamboo for our build/deployment, bitbucket for our git repositories and confluence/github pages for our documentation. We manage portions of our CentOS test/internal tier as well.

At my previous job, I was responsible for developing, implementing and maintaining mostly internal web applications. I collaborated with technical and business staff in the design, development, testing, implementation and production support of enterprise applications.

We primarily used MEAN Stack. 40% of my work was doing front end development, 40% back end development and the remaining 20% was dev-ops/sys admin related tasks. We had a few sys admins for a 300 person+ company. They were very swamped so I was occasionally asked to do things such as migrating test database data between environments, doing jenkins builds/minor build plan tweaks, configuring webpack/or ui/unit testing frameworks.

In addition to development, I also helped with end-user support for stakeholders and designated end users when escalated above our support teams.

For the last half of this position, I led a team of 3 developers for our company's largest web app contract: a fitness video and recipe center for Ultimate Fighting Championship's gyms.
