In the past during my contract with Merck, I was the lead developer on two web, JSP based applications and two PowerBuilder applications. In the past, the majority of projects have involved extensive Object Oriented Programming and development using PowerBuilder, with various databases as the backend. Some of these projects included an Accounts Payable System for the Department of Defense, a Transmission Line Maintenance Application for Bonneville Power Administration and a dynamic reporting system for Independence Blue Cross.
Some of the key skills I have developed from working within such diverse industries are my ability to quickly understand the requirements, the application and the business. This enables me to get up to speed more quickly, and to ultimately make suggestions that will make the completed system easier to use. I have also worked within a multitude of business environments as well as with a wide range of users, technical personnel and managers.
