EXPERIENCE 1998-2012
8/2011-CURRENT GSI Commerce (eBay)
PA, United States http://www.gsicommerce.com/

GSI Commerce is an information technology company that is currently a part of eBay. The core business of GSI
commerce is to support and run eCommerce platforms for the retail stores like Dick's Sporting Goods, Sports
Authority, Ralf Lauren and around 90 others. Some partners are working through the web based stores; some
clients are integrated trough B2B interfaces.

Role: Senior java developer. Full time

Responsibilities: Supporting two legacy platforms for online ecommerce; Participating in the migration to a new ecommerce
platform that was purchased from a German vendor Intershop. The current responsibilities are focused on working on integration
layer for Order, Inventory and B2B services. Also I am periodically going through an excise of improving/customizing new
eCommerce platform INTERSHOP Enfinity that was recently purchased by GSI. At the very moment my work is centered on
improving Spring and Mule flows for email communications within an integration services application based on a
design provided by an architect. Diversity of ongoing and completed projects is explained because of a transitional
phase GSI Commerce is currently in due to a migration to a new eCommerce platform.

- Some improvements were made to the eCommerce systems that are currently in productions for leading retail
vendors (Toys’R Us, Dicks Sporting Goods, TUMI etc). Improvements were made mostly in the areas related to the
user interface (JSP based). I was designing some improvements for back office tools for a new Enfinity eCommerce
platform related to the SOLR/Lucene search integration. Actual implementation was delegated to an offshore
company. Major results were achieved in improving Integration Services framework that is based on Spring/Mule.
A lot of documentation was written for more junior and offshore developers.

Project: ICV (Integral Client View)
Role: Senior java developer. Full time
Responsibilities: Supporting the existing version of a financial credit risk application; making architectural improvements where
possible; fixing production defects; development of new features by the user’s requests; optimizing and supporting build and
deployment processes trough the CruiseControl tool.

- Structure of existing system was analyzed in order to let my team and me, as a lead developer, support it and
respond to the incoming requirements and change requests. System was first developed by 3rd party vendor. Than
I took a lead and a lot of existing defects was fixed. New modules were implemented by me and team such as:
Expected Loss management when assessment is made of general health of a loan/lease (Exposure of Default, Loss
Given Default etc), Notification delivery system was implemented to notify clients about default events. Another
project was - group structure organization. Group structure is a concept when several organizations are unified
under the same umbrella to calculate total exposure and deal with credit ratings;
I also developed simplified entity search mechanism for collection of registered organizations (clients) and work on
concept of matching rules between internal entities (organizations) and reference data provided by D&B- Dun &
- Architectural changes were introduced such as: defining an aspect oriented database transaction management to
let all transactions to be handled by the spring framework; path to the transition from “domain-less” to
thoughtfully designed domain model was defined and 75% implemented; architectural pattern was defined to
override a limitation of using only one webservices framework (AXIS) as an entry point for supported application.
WebService framework was replaced from AXIS to SPRING.
- Build process was cleaned and automated with the help of a CruiseControl framework and ANT. Work on the new
version of the project was successfully begun and almost completed by the time this resume was updated.
Migration was made from WebSphere AS to Tomcat and from RAD to Eclipse in order to make development
environment less expensive to support. Application interface was upgraded from using old version of IBM
WebServices framework to open source frameworks AXIS 1.1 and Spring WebServices

Project: HBM4STAS (Hibernate generator)
This project was developed to generate database mapping files for J2EE projects that access database using HIBERNATE
framework. This project lets a regular developer in 10 seconds generate all hibernate mapping files and pack them nicely in one JAR
archive. Website was created and hosted to support this project. Business model was developed to try commercializing this project.
It assumes that individual developers will download this project it use it for free. Big companies who need an additional
customization will receive it on the commercial basis.

Because this project is middleware that is not supposed to be used by end users but by J2EE developers the detail information
might look very technical.

E-commerce applications were developed for IBM Germany and IBM Worldwide. I was an official IBM contractor.
Following projects were assigned to my team and me: IBM Common Custom Classification System (CCCS) and IBM
Electronic Transport Order (ETO).

CCCS Application is to provide custom classifications of IBM merchandises to the users and other IBM applications.
It contains about 5000000 custom classifications to all products that IBM has ever produced. System is available to
all the countries where IBM has local departments. Application has a front-end (web) interface available for the
users and backend interface available for other applications, usually for mainframe applications. Backend processes
use MQ-series to contact needed service of CCCS application.

ETO Application is a system to connect local IBM departments with local transport carriers. It provides facilities to
assign orders to carriers and track how the orders are processed.

Role: Team leader. Position was about managing six Java developers in Minsk/Belarus and Rodgau Germany.
Responsibilities included technical project management and some administration activity: tasks assignment,
preparation of timesheet reports to project managers, Java code review, and creation of internal (low-level)
application designs. My job included implementation of the most important tasks that were assigned to our team
(especially various business transactions). Our team also provided database management. It included creation of
DB2 DDL files, SQL migrations scripts, creation of DB2 Java stored procedures. Production DB2 databases were
located on PowerPC servers cluster and mainframe MVS host. Test databases were hosted on Win32 and Linux
(SuSE 8.2 pro).

Role: Software Developer
Responsibilities: It included development of the new business transactions and support of the both applications
(CCCS and ETO). Java code had to be developed using WSAD v.4.X and 5.X as main development tools (From the
earlier beginning Visual Age for Java was used). Management of local test servers WAS 4.x and 5.x WTE. It also
included preparing code to deployment on the production WebSphere server on AIX environment. Code had to be
synchronized with CVS repositories on the regular basis. Some of my tasks included usage of the WebSphere
embedded MQ. Production and test queues were accessed using MQ Java libraries. Database access layer
development using EJB CMP beans and Session bean facades was also part of my job. UI development included
validation of JSP pages according IBM internal standards for User Interface. Borland C++ 5.02 was used to create
custom text editor and the JSP syntax checker utility (check JSP pages according IBM internal standards).

Results: Several versions of the applications (ETO and CCCS) were created and deployed on the production
