Major project: Background Check System – Core Framework

Role: Worked from an initial set of use cases to design core components; interacted with business unit to refine requirements and integrate feedback in an iterative development cycle; supported data migration, implementation, enhancement and maintenance of the new software system.

Environment: API developed in C#, utilizing NHibernate 2 for database persistence in Microsoft SQL Server 2008; web-based user interface developed in ASP.NET.

Background:  This business unit provides background check services to large customers in the healthcare industry; the dynamic nature of the offered services required a data-driven system, which would allow administration of those services; the system encompasses employee, vendor, and client functionality.

Description: The web-based application allows administrators to fully configure the system (including research services offered, pricing and cost, customer data, etc.), researchers and vendors to track and process research tasks, and clients to submit and review background research requests; the system manages the full lifecycle of the research process and data involved - submission, research, reporting, and billing.

 

Major project: Background Check System – Automated Research Framework

Role: Designed and developed software components in conjunction with Core Framework (see above); managed team members and consultants working on plug-ins to the framework.

Environment:  Windows Services and WCF web service.

Background:  The Core Framework assigns various research tasks to researchers.  Researchers can be human agents, or alternately, software “agents”. The mechanism for retrieving and processing workload for software agents needed to be uniform and consistent with the workflow followed by human agents.

Description: The framework affords rapid development of new automated software “agents”.  A single class is written to a specific interface, and encompasses the logic for a particular automated research task. The Automated Research Framework utilizes this and other implementation classes, handling scheduling, execution, errors, and communication with the Core Framework.

 

Major project: Background Check System – Client Integration Framework

Role: Designed and developed software components in conjunction with the Core Framework (see above); managed team members and consultants working on plug-ins to the framework.

Environment: Windows Services, WCF web services, and ASP.NET user interface.

Background:  Large clients utilize specialized Human Resources software to manage processes and data surrounding their workforce.  These clients desire an automated interface between their software and this company’s Background Check software.  A single mechanism and uniform process for accepting orders, exception processing, and status updates was needed.

Description: Individual integration implementations involve the development of a single web service and separate “update agent.” The web service utilizes the Client Integration Framework to accept and process automated orders.  The Client Integration Framework then communicates with the Core Framework to respond to certain order lifecycle events, instantiate the appropriate “update agent” class, and execute methods on that class appropriate to the event being processed.

 

Other projects:

-       Client Integration Framework plug-in for Taleo Enterprise.

-       Client Integration Framework plug-in for PeopleSoft HRM.

Position held: Software Consultant

Task summary:

-       Designed and developed software from initial requirements documented in use cases.

-       Directly interfaced with clients, analyzing feedback to formulate project requirement and design changes.

 

Major project: GroupOne Background Check System (please see experience at Dallas/Ft. Worth Hospital Council, above, for details)

 

Major project: Dallas/Ft. Worth Hospital Council Salary Survey

Role: Worked from an initial set of use cases to architect and develop the system.

Environment: Core components developed in C#; user interface developed in ASP.NET.

Background:  The client provides statistical analysis of healthcare job salaries to its members; salary data is provided by each specific member, in return for statistical summaries of the data for all members; strict rules govern the validity and lifespan of the data submitted and disclosed.

Description: The web-based portal allows healthcare members to submit their individual salary data, and request statistical reports; administrators are able to maintain members and rules governing the validity of data.

 

Other projects:

-       Legacy data migration for a major project roll-out
