Software Engineer
As a Software Engineer I am part of a small team that is building a general purpose resource storage service that provides the ability to publish, relate, find, consume, and version resources of any type through a RESTful interface. It will serve as infrastructure across products and platforms (cloud, desktop, enterprise and mobile). My team and I are part of the process from A to Z, which includes designing and implementing the APIs, deploying the service to AWS, monitoring the service, and integrating it into the Qlik product with various teams across the globe.
