About Me

After graduating in June 2014 from the Computer Science and Information Technology Bachelor’s degree, and being awarded student of the year with a GPA distinction of 3.25, I started my career at Oracle. 

As a Software Engineer in Oracle, I identified a number of manual tasks that could be automated, and implemented that automation via UNIX scripting, python and Pexpect. Experienced in supporting a global team of developers, building and maintaining test environments, both physical and virtual and testing Oracle Solaris with the latest firmware versions. I was also responsible for maintaining a fleet of test machines in the lab and ensuring configurations were correct prior to test execution. As part of my performance review I was described as friendly, approachable, quality focused and hard-working. 

Along with my prior experience in customer service, where I often received praise for my diligence and attention to detail of customer needs, I feel I have much to offer, both technically, and in customer service. 

Following a planned career break I re-entered the workforce. I have been working as a System Support Engineer at Huawei since September 2020.

I have been continuing to learn and develop my skills. I am particularly interested in networking, cloud computing, scripting, automation, Linux based systems, Docker containers, Quality Assurance – QA and writing valuable documentation to help colleagues with their daily work.

I have experience with multiple operating systems such as Linux and Solaris; Kibana, NGINX, System Monitoring, Automation Platform (package release, package configuration change, IaC, patch / version deployments, clusters creation, ELB and alarm management); Flume deployment and management. Setup of logs for data analyses; Big Data.

Switch, Hub and Router networking; basic Python; Intermediate bash scripts; use of Visual Studio Code, Git/GitHub, AWS (EC2, S3, IAM, EBS, ELB, DynamoDB), App Inventor, Windows Command Prompt, PuTTY. Formatting PC and laptops with or without creation of partition; Making Ethernet cables.
