Software Engineer and Technical Manager, TESystems, Milpitas, CA 4/95 to 5/00

-Supervised software effort for ATE (Automated Test Equipment) projects. The results were delivery of ATE produced to meet the customer’s specifications and delivery date. This involved up to 3 projects at a time, 1-3 teams, and spanned the complete SDLC lifecycle: initial customer interface, SW & UI architecture and design, scheduling and implementation, and final sell-off and support.

-Developed and maintained structure for code development: UI, with basic control functions and hooks for custom tests. This code was distributed to teams when starting new projects, to speed development and to facilitate adding new team members and long term support.

-System delivery & installation; Local and Overseas.

-Offline discussion with Lifescan reps to retain the contract (a contract “save”). The problem was miscommunications between our upper management & the representatives.

-Offline discussion with PE/Applied Biosystems customer reps to clarify contract (save #2). Again, a miscommunication problem; we seemed to not say the correct words, and not correctly.
