Senior Software Engineer
Designed and developed Aloha, a highly scalable Java Spring-based SIP Application Server. Aloha is
a real-time multi-threaded application built using an optimistic concurrency model, on top of the open
source JAIN-SIP stack and includes bespoke automated mock phones for testing. Aloha is the
underlying engine used by the Web21C web services.
Created a testing framework in Java, providing the ability to measure robustness, performance and
scalability of applications as part of a continuous integration environment.
Developed several J2EE web services which allowed external developers to embed telephony into their
applications via an SDK. The web services were hosted on a JBoss application server and Spring’s
JDBC template was used to access the backend PostgreSQL database.
Implemented various mashups in Ruby on Rails and Java using the Web21C SDK, one of which was
voted ProgrammableWeb’s Mashup of the Day.
Mentored three developers as their community coach within _____ Professional Communities,
enabling them to plan their career progress effectively.
Jan 1999 – Nov 2005 Mantis Technology, NY
A US-based software solutions provider for the healthcare industry.
Senior Software Engineer
Designed and developed MantisIQ, a Radiology Information System, using C# and web services on
Microsoft .NET. This client-server application included extensive use of stored procedures in a SQL
Server 2000 database. MantisIQ is currently used by all of the company’s clients.
Architected and implemented a real-time server-side application that interfaces with third-party
applications using HL7. The application was implemented in C++ on UNIX in conjunction with stored
procedures in SQL Server and has been successfully tested against applications from prominent
vendors including Siemens, GE and Fujitsu.
Created a web-based application called Clinical Messaging Server using Java Servlets, HTML and
database, thereby automating most of the inventory process.
Implemented various core libraries to be used in the development of all C++ applications by the
software department. Examples include a DES encryption library and a pseudo-database driver to
access SQL Server from UNIX platforms.
Wrote several Java programs and SQL scripts to migrate data from various systems (text files,
databases) into a SQL Server database.
Developed an Internet telephone and radio using standardised multimedia protocols such as SIP, SDP,
RTP, and RTCP. This was implemented in C on Linux.
Simulated 2 distributed systems on a UNIX network and implemented Chandy-Lamport’s snapshot
protocol using TCP/IP.
Implemented a lottery scheduler into the kernel of RedHat Linux on Vmware.
Presenting a paper titled, “Pushing the Boundaries of Testing and Continuous Integration” at the
Agile2008 conference in Toronto, Canada.
Selected into _____ Design’s Technical Talent Pool in recognition of potential and an excellent
