  • Enhancing and bug-fixing applications based on JIRA intake tickets that are prioritized by company priorities and cost savings.
  • Break/Fix solutions for existing applications and server infrastructure.
  • Rewriting legacy applications with a modern design, theme, layout, and database structure.
  • Managing SQL Server and Windows Server clusters used by divisional and national applications, as well as other departments and teams.

Projects

  • Server Architecture - Comprised a plan to reduce SQL Server cluster from 12 servers down to 6, as well as redistribute and maximize resource throughput of these servers. This plan is being implemented throughout Fiscal 2018 and saves the company a few hundred thousand dollars as well as minimizes necessary maintenance times while ensuring resources are properly utilized.
  • Subcounts - Analyzed an aged and outdated application written in classic ASP, and rewrote it to use MVC, Razor, and jQuery. Database backend had to be completely re-engineered as there was little to no documentation or scripts that existed for the old platform. Application regularly processes over 800M records in under 2 minutes per execution depending on parameters used. This application interfaces with a ticketing platform to allow writing the output results into various tickets for customers, service incident reports, service maintenance logs, etc.
  • OAUTH2 Rollout - Wrote an OAUTH2 wrapper that I used to bolt on to all existing and new applications to interface with external API's. I then utilized this system to rewrite all applications to utilize this OAUTH2 system where appropriate.

Lead Analyst

Apr 2009 - Mar 2017
Comcast Cable Communications - Nottingham, MD (Beltway Region)
Collections, Revenue Operations, Finance, Business Intelligence

Responsibilities

  • Reporting and Application Development for the Beltway Region of Comcast. Originally developed in Reporting Services, many reports were redesigned, revamped, and pushed into Tableau for Senior Leadership to consume.
  • Managed local SQL Server cluster, including database modeling and indexing. This consisted of 8 SQL Servers, with 4 of these being dedicated to various operational data stores branched by department. This cluster would process several TB of data daily and needed to have high availability due to being used to drive critical business decisions.
  • Hosted various training classes on SQL Query development in SQL Server and Composite Information Server. This empowered 41 employees to get into basic SQL Query development and to look at enhancing their skills. Follow-up support was provided over email with "Tips and Tricks" sent regularly, as well as individual query debugging with employees.

Projects

  • Beltway OrderPath - Pulled in all orders made in the billing system to audit for previous bad debt or unreturned equipment. Application interfaced with credit bureaus and public records companies to obtain necessary information. Fuzzy matching was used to match non-standard addresses and recursively search through the billing system, checking for over 16 different data-point matches. This tool reduced a manual process from 30 minutes per account down to 2 minutes per account in an easy to use web interface for documentation, and reduced bad debt by over $2M in the first year of launch and handled over 100,000 orders a month.
  • Beltway Friends and Family - An application that was used to generate one-time use coupons for employees to provide to their friends and family for special promotional deals.
  • Customer Experience Portal - Every business wants to answer that question: "Would you recommend us?", and this application was an answer to that customer lens. The application is a combination of data processing and data entry from leadership teams to provide employees a way to see what drives the customers experience with our business.
  • Customer Notification Platform - Wrote an automated process that audited the billing system and looked for any equipment that had been returned. A detailed email would be generated and sent to the customer listing the individual devices returned and when, providing the customer a digital transaction receipt.
  • Data Warehouse - Assisted in building a regional data warehouse. This warehouse was used to feed other departments, Reporting Services reports, as well as Tableau reports. Around 600gb of records were processed daily.
  • QuickCoach - From techs in the field, to agents in the call center, a necessity exists to notify either side when there are issues with accounts or work orders that may have been overlooked or were unnecessary. This application allowed notifications to be sent to individual managers to improve our customers experience, as well as increase our team's awareness.
  • Service Authorization - Automated scripting process to generate a list of accounts and devices that are receiving services illegally, receiving less service than the customer is paying for, or receiving more service than the customer is paying for. This was then provided to MIS for auditing and processing, to correct the issues. This lead to a huge increase in internet subscribers as theft of service was very common. Process was extensible so that it could be used for any necessary customer notification.
