At OmniSci I was nominated to be a Team Lead. I led several projects to build new features - handling both project management tasks as well as contributing to the code. I led the team’s retrospectives, and facilitated feedback between our team and all levels of management (including our CEO). I also led our bi-weekly Engineering Demo meetings, where I coordinated presenting new product features to the company. Lastly, I worked to coordinate a company-wide on-call system to improve triaging of critical bugs and cross-team communication.
I do my best to provide prompt, empathetic, and humble communication with everyone at my company. It's also my passion to write easily-readble, well-documented code. Additionally, the VP of Marketing at OmniSci called my presentation skills “fantastic”.
At Omnisci, I had a strong impact on building a positive culture: I founded and ran our Mario Kart night - we met twice weekly for over 5 months and attracted people from all over the company. I also led an initiative to have a coordinated team Halloween costume, which won our company’s costume prize. Additionally, I frequently facilitated social meetings with my coworkers - including one that continues to meet long after I've left the company.
I am currently working on our company's UI component library, specializing in building our data table components and related functionality.
As a team lead, I coordinated: daily standups, cross-team issue triaging, company-wide feature demos, team retrospectives, and the team's on-call system.
I was a project lead for major functionality that debuted in our largest release to-date. This functionality was also demoed by the CEO at the company’s first ever user conference
I built a user interface for scientists to upload and create geospatial data related to plant and animal biodiversity.
I led an initiative to rebuild a suite of outdated applications. Notably, I built an Angular-based UI component library. Additionally, I built an Angular-based boilerplate for use in each application overhaul or in new application launches.
I also led an initiative to internationalize our Angular app. This included writing Node scripts to facilitate the translation process and establishing procedures for maintaining internationalization alongside new app development.
Immediately after graduating, I founded and ran a small business doing GIS-related web development. I worked primarily with nonprofit organizations to develop web map applications and data visualization tools.
I focused on interactive cartography and web-development related classes. I worked as an intern during the last year and a half of university doing GIS-related web development. I took two directed study courses that involved developing web applications that focused on geospatial data.
"One thing that I appreciate (and our team appreciates) is that Caitlin takes time 'to leave a place better than she found it.' As she is working, she regularly takes time to refactor existing code for the better or if the changes are too far off her current track, then she will file a JIRA with breadcrumbs."– Erik Brockman, VP of Platform Engineering at Ridgeline
"Caitlin’s strong technical background enabled her to come up to speed quickly, and she continues to produce high quality PRs that impress her peers."– Erik Brockman, VP of Platform Engineering at Ridgeline
