Seeking full-time employment where my skills and knowledge can be effectively utilized. I am a diverse Software Engineer \ Developer with more than twenty years of comprehensive experience in many facets of Information Technology and Business Intelligence. Able to quickly identify problems, bottlenecks and provide appropriate solutions. A proven ability to explain highly complex technical problems with clarity and simplicity. My areas of responsibility have been project and task management, claims, members, enrollment and pharmacy processing, data extracts, optimizing code and support of legacy systems on multiple OS platforms. Able to operate independently or on a team in a fast-paced business environment. Considered to be the go to person when faced with interesting and complex business challenges. I am customer and performance driven and have managed multiple projects and successfully installed a variety of software applications. Coordinated and lead multiple software upgrade teams.
As a Software Engineer III, I designed, developed, and maintained claim, member, enrollment, and pharmacy, along with Federal and state required reporting. This was accomplished by using SQL and ETL processes for several State Health Plan Markets. Job scheduling was achieved via SQL, Tidal Software automation, or through SSRS. I mentored junior developers with our most common tools SSRS, SSIS, and other ETL processes. As a member of a Code Review team, we would enforce coding standards and performance enhancements for the Regulatory Compliance Reporting (RCR) department. A majority of our regulatory reports utilized application reporting tools SQL, SSRS, SSIS, Oracle, and Informatica. With these tasks and activities, we used the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) initially within a Waterfall environment and in early 2020 we transitioned to an Agile environment using Kanban board methodology with daily stand-up meetings. Agile is a set of methods and practices where solutions evolve through collaboration between cross-functional teams to deliver value faster, with greater quality and predictability. Another of my tasks was to research and evaluate testing software Zephyr and present my findings to the management team. I determined the Zephyr testing tool provides end-to-end solutions for Agile teams and integrated well with the tools we currently use but requires too much overhead for small projects or tasks. This tool would be ideal for mid to large scale projects. This software tool has been implemented in other departments throughout Anthem Companies Inc.
As a Senior Systems Engineer, my responsibilities included claims, enrollments from manual applications to developing PICK applications on a Sequoia system running atop of a UNIX based OS system. Was one of a select number of Developer Engineers offered the chance to receive training in VB and SQL. Upon completion of training, we lead a team of Engineers who supported a new reporting system. This required SQL administrator responsibilities and to quickly learn how to spot real-time problems and troubleshoot issues. I designed, developed, tested, and debugged automated streamlined processes for incoming EDI formatted data from numerous employers and State Medicaid data sent by the individual states. Other responsibilities included DBA maintenance, completed several ETL and SSIS projects for Product Modeling and Employer Group Reporting utilizing my knowledge in SQL, SSMS, Crystal Reports, and Access. Upgraded and converted multiple Access Databases to SQL and SSIS with VB.net front ends. Worked extensively with customized CSC-Comtec software and have completed numerous PICK projects including the development of a Medicaid enrollment system with data inputs from tape, Internet, secure FTP, and Electronic Data submission system using EDI formats. Completed countless reports, and data feeds to multiple destinations. Assisted in configuring and installing an intranet-based corporate-wide comprehensive learning management education system called SABA.
