Dear Human Resources:

I am sending you my résumé in response to your job posting. Please note I have an extensive background in object-oriented programming, design patterns, and ECMAScript. Working independently, I have reached an advance TypeScript level, which I can demonstrate on my GitHub repositories.

For more than 6 years I was a Flash Programmer at World Golf Tour. Whereas I was initially brought on board to manage the Major League Baseball development game, within a short amount of time due to my innovative and creative implementations, I was promoted to sole developer on the flagship golf game. For the duration, my responsibilities included the upkeep of yearly virtual tournaments, creation of features such as particle effects & new game modes, and code-based maintenance via correcting technical debt. Using agile methodologies my resolution rate consistently ranked in the 95 percentile.

As Software Engineer at Rocket Ninja, a San Francisco start-up, I wrote sophisticated components using a mix of Flash and Java. Again, due to my durable work ethic and strong teamwork capabilities, I was promoted to Senior Software Engineer using Java Spring, Flash, and Hibernate ORM for full stack coding. By spearheading the incorporation of an additional network service using OpenSocial, I was directly involved in influencing user acquisition growth by over 10% in less than one fiscal quarter.

Prior to being on the ground floor of exciting opportunities at Rocket Ninja, I enjoyed immense success as a Flash Developer at Zynga. Working primarily on the Facebook game YoVille, I simplified the build process by splitting the art-pipeline from the code generation. This was in addition to my assigned tasks of fixing bugs and implementing features. The time I spent at Microsoft as a Media Associate directly prior well-prepared me for such welcomed challenges. Besides being entrusted to build the Dove website using Flash, I led ongoing team meetings in the Beet Department (Branded Entertainment & Experiences Team) consisting of object-oriented programming. This included ongoing international communication with our China and Ireland offices.

If hired, I would bring to your organization the unique blend of an employee with expert skill-sets working for some of the most respected businesses in the country, and someone with a documented track record of successfully managing programs and projects. I can be reached immediately at 415-***-**** or by e-mail to schedule an interview. I look forward to speaking with you about how my skills can benefit your organization. Sincerely,

Jonathan R. Gee
