I’m an experienced finance professional and licensed stockbroker looking to use my experience in these areas along with my ability to code to create useful processes and analyis. I have a degree in business administration from University of Missouri St. Louis and have taught myself VBA, C++, python and SQL. I started out working with visual basic to manipulate excel files and progressed to using macros to control outlook and communicate with the mainframe terminals using IBM reflections. After discovering that I could automate tasks for my work I began reading books and watching lectures online to learn C++ . To practice coding I completed nearly every C++ challenge on hackerrank.com. In addition to C++ I have been working to learn python and SQL through code academy and hacker rank.
Miscommunication and lack of understanding between business teams and IT can often lead to delays and even cause some projects to fail. Agile development requires that developers work closely with clients to meet their needs. My experience and knowledge that comes from working in finance and operations provides me with a better understanding of the clients needs.
