In the Media
While at Intel, I led software development teams for approximately
four years. In that time, I managed in both waterfall and
agile environments. Below are more details about the different
activities I either led or participated in during my role as
Software Development Lead or Manager.
I took over an ailing Remedy
call tracking system program that was filled with acrimony between
the development team and the primary stakeholders. I worked
extensively with the development team to rebuild trust and find ways
for them to work better with frustrated customers. I created
clearer expectations, more effective communication channels, and
better discipline in order to get the project on track. As a
result, we were able to release a large upgrade to the tool that
fulfilled the wishes of the stakeholders and a development team that
felt proud of their work. This tool was used by several
thousand Intel employees for more than five years (an eternity at
Intel). I received a Divisional Recognition Award while
working in that project.
I managed a team of 40 software developers in Russia while at Intel.
In concordance with our business partners in the U.K., we were a
tight-running Agile shop. My role was to run operations,
oversee resource assignments, assure quality, and develop the team
to be better Intel employees. My main activities and
achievements were the following:
Assigned appropriate resources to all
development projects in our region. Included C#/.Net
developers, data analysts, project managers, and SAP systems
Built a quality program that identified and
automated multiple software quality tests which reported results
on a dashboard.
Oversaw multiple software projects that
delivered applications to Intel's Sales and Marketing Group.
Attended hundreds of scrum meetings,
multiple planning sessions, and understand in great detail unit
testing, estimates, story writing, continuous integration,
pair-programming, and prioritization.
I know how to lead Agile projects. I know
how to lead software developers. And I know how to manage
projects with multiple stakeholders. I have the detailed
knowledge of project management, a strong track record of project
successes, and a firm belief and skill set in the Agile development
