Graduate Developer - Telstra PurpleJanuary 2018 - Present
Working in the Managed Services team for Telstra Purple (formerly known as Readify), doing sustained engineering for a range of customers. Some of the major projects I have worked on are:
- Ongoing maintenance of a Xamarin iOS mobile application with a .NET Framework back end which enables sales people to place orders for customers remotely. This includes constant communication with the client to determine and understand new requirements, as well as responding to changing business requirements.
- A web application for scheduling which reduced time spent allocating resources within the team from 3 days to 3 hours a month. I was involved from project conception through an iterative development process taking on feedback from key users until delivery. We used C# & ASP.NET for the back end, and React+Redux for the interactive UI.
- A web application for managing the individual skills of consultants across Telstra Purple. The tool allows workforce planners to identify and more confidently place consultants onto different gigs given their skillsets. From the beginning of the project I was involved, being part of the core team to build, iterate and maintain the site. It is written with Angular, ngrx and a .NET Core backend.
