       Worked with teams to create test plans, documentation, and time-stamped logs of
   system software advancement testing from the front- to the back-ends. The software
   included migration of a “legacy” engine (Visual C++) into a front-end interface (VB.NET) that
   drove additional new functionalities, including support of multiple languages and new data
   gathering modalities.
   We tested remote GUI functionality with consideration of the performance integrity of the
   legacy software and additional accessories that accompanied the primary software package,
   including a custom database viewer and a custom license plate record editor that were to
   run in parallel with the primary GUI. Also ran verification-regression tests of machine device
   firmware (in C), working on a 1-to-1 basis with long-standing experts in the area of vehicle
   emissions remote sensing R&D to glean a necessary systems and software understanding
   to create, write, and execute system-level, regression, field and product test plans and
       Performed regression testing, product testing, and system testing of software. Utilized a
   bottom-up, trouble-shooting approach to test software and systems, which dramatically
   improved customer experience. Initiated and maintained communications between
   colleagues, which resulted in improved decision making. Wrote Python scripts to analyze
   system output in comma-separated version files.
       Participated in team verifying, utilizing, troubleshooting, and upgrading factory-level
   software utilities employed for product maintenance, development, manufacturing, repair,
   field service, and debugging
 We spent dozens of hours assuring the quality of migration from the legacy software to the
   new system by consulting hardware, software, manufacturing, product support, and other
   long-standing company experts and assimilated that information into results and
   recommended courses of actions
 Attempted to define a benchmark for our technology, which was not already defined (our
   cliental was not concerned with this in our industry; therefore, this hadn’t inhibited sales).
   Started to create a cross-analytical histogram to this end. Also interacted with an AZ Dept.
   of Transportation engineer to consider the feasibility of gathering required data on-the-road
   to eventually establish an initial benchmark definition for our technology (and also extend
   the testing procedure with additional stress testing)
 Hosted an international customer representative on a tour of the Grand Canyon

   allocated additional hardware assets for the team’s development and testing efforts, which
   benefited team productivity
