I have worked part-time and full-time in industry over the past 8 years.
I am currently working full-time for Intel and may or may not be interested
in a new position in the next few years. I am happy with my job currently
and am not actively looking, but if a very good job opportunity came up,
I would certainly give it the attention it deserves.
Intel EPSD Firmware - [Jun 2011-Present]
I am currently employed by Intel, writing BMC firmware for Intel-designed
server platforms. I work with a world-wide team (China, India, USA) that
develops, tests, and supports the BMC firmware. It is a fast moving job
with many opportunities for me to develop and debug code in a variety of
applications (kernel, user-space, client, server, etc.). My team also works
closely with the hardware developers and the BIOS developers.
Just in case you were wondering, I do not have the resources or
contacts to help you get Intel hardware for real cheap or help you get
a job. I am not a hiring manager and I do not work with sales. I
am a programmer and love to code. If you have any questions about
that, feel free to contact me.
IBM Linux Technology Center - [Mar 2004-Jun 2011]
I am worked full-time as a staff software engineer for
IBM in the
Linux Technology Center.
I spent the first three years of my time working with RedHat and SuSE to make sure
their distributions of Linux work well on IBM's servers. The last four years
were spent supporting Real-Time Linux running on IBM servers.
IBM Extreme Blue - [Jun-Aug 2002]
The summer of 2002, I worked as an intern in
IBM's Extreme Blue program.
This program brings Computer Science and Computer Engineering students and MBA
students together in small teams working on new and innovative projects for IBM.
I worked on Blue Shift, a team that is working with the
IBM Austin Research Lab
pushing a reference design platform for IBM's
Network Processor. I had the opportunity to work using C, C++,
ASM, and VHDL for this project. Working with an MBA student as a member of
our team has also been a very valuable experience, as she helped us find
our market and define our goals for the project.
IBM Linux Technology Center - [May-Aug 2001]
The summer of 2001, I worked full time as an intern for
IBM working in the
Linux Technology Center.
I spent most of my time porting Linux Kernel regression
tests from AIX to run on Linux and writing new test-suites to add to the
Linux Test Project. Most of the
tests that I worked with were in the area of IPC.
Decagon Devices - [Mar 1999-Aug 2001]
I started off working for Decagon Devices
as a software engineer working on several projects. Most notable was
a percent-cover digital camera that can be used to calculate the percent
cover of green foliage in an area. I worked some with the DSP engine in
the camera as well as some user interface account software.
