Work Experience

Software Developer

Lonely Planet
March 2016 – June 2020
Dublin, Ireland

Mainly Worked on in-house Ruby on Rails CMS for Lonely Planet’s travel book production that has three parts: An Offline first with progressive web app, administrative section, and an API. Automated tasks to improve book production process, software deployment and testing. Daily work involved adding features, debugging and fixing most complex and annoying bugs in variety of software and automated processes.

Being part of an small but high-efficient agile team, I helped new team members to get adapt to the platforms, pair programming, and perform peer code reviews to ensure code quality and automated tests are up-to-standards.

Used ChefDK and other open source infrastructure management tools to ensure the IaC repositories are well maintained so the releases and deployments are efficient and smooth on AWS.
