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 am now seeking to re-enter the workforce. I have been continuing to learn and develop my skills. I am particularly interested in testing, cloud computing, scripting, automation, Linux based systems, Docker containers and networking.  

I have experience with multiple operating systems such as Linux, Solaris and Windows; Switch, Hub and Router networking; Python; Intermediate Unix scripts; use of Eclipse, TextPad, Git/GitHub, Jenkins, Maven, 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.

At the moment (2020) I am doing the ISTQB (Software Testing) Foundation Level course and the Development And Operations - DevOps - course to upskill and reskill.
