Software Engineer—Restaurants B2C

January 2019–June 2019

TripAdvisor is the largest travel site in the world, packed with user reviews about hotels, restaurants, and attractions across every continent. As a member of the Restaurants B2C team, I was responsible for developing and maintaining restaurants-related features for the TripAdvisor iOS application.

While I was there, I got the opportunity to build upon my existing skills as an iOS developer, working with experienced colleagues to ensure I learned to use best practices to write strong, clear, and reusable Swift code. Among other things, I spent a significant portion of my time working on further advancing the new Nearby Restaurants map/list combo view that in early 2019.

Software Engineer—Restaurants B2B

May 2018–August 2018

TripAdvisor is the largest travel site in the world, packed with user reviews about hotels, restaurants, and attractions across every continent. As a member of the Restaurants B2B team, I worked to develop software that restaurants use to improve and customize their listings on TripAdvisor.

During my time at TripAdvisor Canada, the company launched an API to allow advertisement agencies to manage ads for their clients (restaurant owners with many locations). This project marked my first contribution to a significant coding project at a company, and it gave me the chance to put my expertise in Java to the test.

Integration Specialist

May 2017–Dec 2017

TravelClick is a company that specializes in solutions for the hospitality industry. The Ottawa office worked with the Guest Management Solutions (GMS) product, which sent out guest confirmation emails, allowed hotels to conduct surveys, and much more.

TravelClick was my first co-op position. I worked as an Integration Specialist - my job was to connect hotels with our databases by installing the GMS software on their servers. I monitered data feeds, wrote extensive documentation, fixed elusive bugs, and completed several significant code changes, all while ensuring clients were satisfied with our service.

Carleton University

Undergraduate Research Assistant

May 2016–Sept 2016

During the summer of 2016, I volunteered to complete some research with a Computer Science professor at Carleton University, Dr. Doron Nussbaum. At the time, he was researching algorithms to find the shortest path to a moving target. The position began as volunteer work, but he was able to secure a grant for the project, allowing me to work full-time.

My time working under Dr. Nussbaum was very useful, as I was able to learn many programming best-practices, develop my critical thinking skills, and work on the clarity and conciseness of the documentation I wrote.
