ABOUT ME

My name is Michael Jennings. I'm a developer living in Orange, California. I graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a B.S. in Computer Science. I've worked as a developer at Amazon, Parliament, ViaSat, and D&B Credibility Corporation. Right now I'm working as a High School Math and Science Tutor. I'm looking for work that will allow me to combine my programming capability with my newly discovered love of teaching.

EXPERIENCE
D&B
VIASAT
AMAZON
PARLIAMENT

I worked as a Web Development Intern at D&B Credibility Corporation during the Summer of 2011. At D&B I helped maintain the backend of the company's website and got experience with PHP and MySQL. I also worked with various public API's to gather and validate business information.

I worked as a Software Engineering Intern at ViaSat during the Summer of 2012. While there, I worked on a team of three interns to develop a prototype for a home security and automation system. We had a functioning prototype by the end of the Summer.

I worked primarily in Java. My responsibilities on the team included creating a framework for interfacing with heterogeneous smart devices, developing an event system using the Drools rules database, and setting up and maintaining an Enterprise Service Bus.

I worked as a Software Engineering Intern at Amazon during the Summer of 2013. At Amazon I developed a text advertisement data model and implemented an API in Java for creating and updating advertisements within that model.

Parliament is a small creative Agency located in Portland, Oregon. At Parliament I worked as a contract Web Developer. While there I began a large Order Management System project in Meteor and worked on a Shopify Ecommerce site.
