Work Experience

2021 - Present

CodeX Academy - Nashville, Tennessee

Development Mentor

At CodeX I mentor people who want to become Full Stack Developers by teaching them the most used and important technologies and the best practices.

Some of my activities at CodeX are:

  • Mentoring Sessions: Have personal mentoring sessions with all my mentorees solving all their questions and doing pair programming with them.
  • QA Sessions: Have mentoring sessions for all the mentorees from the same level at the same time.
  • Evaluations: Evalutate students whenever they complete a badge.
  • Pathway maintenance: I constantly make changes on the pathways for all levels, by talking with the students and getting feedback from them. Also constantly giving suggestions for making big changes on the pathway for a better learning for the stundents.

Acklen Avenue - Nashville, Tennessee

Fullstack Developer

At Acklen Avenue I have worked for numerous projects as a Fullstack Dev, all of them being web apps. Some of them are:

  • Developers Pair Metrics: Created an application and formulas that return the quality of the pair sessions of the devs of the company, so each tribe lead could detect anomalies and make changes to improve the work of the developers.
  • Nashville Launchpad: Created a web app for people management. The client initially used an Excel sheet to manage all the people who the company was giving shelter to, so I improved the task by developing a manager that aids the person in charge by easily managing all homeless people and cover all their necessities.
  • Testim - Cucumber Integration: Created an integration between two services Testim and Cucumber to improve by 60% the time that a QA needed to test and report a new functionality developed.

Laureate International Universities - Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Faculty Development Intern

During my three years at Laureate I worked on dierent projects centered on providing learning resources and courses to strengthen the teaching techniques for online faculty members from dierent universities around the globe.
Here I worked my soft skills like time management, creative thinking, teamwork, communication and responsibility.
Also worked on projects to help my coworkers to reduce their time to complete a task by automating some of their tasks.
My two most important projects where:

  • Renamer: At the end of every course, the faculty members receive a certicate. Initially all the coordination was done manually using Excel, so I created a tool that created and organized each certicate. This tool reduced the workload from one week to one hour.
  • IPRs: One of my tasks was to evaluate the faculty performance in their courses by lling in a weekly report. Initially, every individual course had its own template and the completion of these reports may take up to one full week. With the implementation of my new tool that was programmed with macros, we had an organized way to complete the reports within 1-2 days.
