Nokia

March 2015 to Present

I am a web application developer for Nokia working on applications for Software Defined Networking (SDN). I create web applications in React/Redux that monitor and steer network traffic using BGP and Openflow Protocols.

When I joined Nokia, the company was using an outdated web application framework. It required a web browser to download 10MB of JavaScript just to draw a table. It was slow, time-consuming to develop with, and full of bugs. Over the course of several months, I convinced the organization to change using a series of proof of concepts. I lead the department to modernize their web applications using a new platform based on React/Redux and Webpack. Today, we have over 40 developers using the foundation that I put in place.

My day to day responsibilities include being the project lead for web applications on the SDN platform, and providing guidance and consultation for other web application teams.
