Stefanie joined a development team at Ford that launched and supported 5 microservices in less than a year, which was unprecedented for that department. Her team implemented continuous integration and deployment pipelines, which allowed code to be pushed into production as quickly as possible. Business users felt very confident that issues could be quickly identified, addressed, and rapidly released soon to ensure that business processes were not impacted for long periods of time.
Most recently, she was working with a legal tech startup in California, where she jumped in to help streamline their deployment to their clients. She helped teams improve their C# micro tests in their WPF application, automated Powershell scripts to reduce manual testing, helped test new and existing features before release, and replicated difficult edge cases through extensive use of the desktop application. She coached teams on story mapping and making user stories tie back to the user and business needs. She encouraged pair and mob programming, cross-team collaboration, and action over deliberation.
Stefanie graduated from the University of California at Davis with a Bachelors of Arts in Linguistics and a Bachelors of Science in Managerial Economics. She was a software engineering fellow at Hackbright Academy in San Francisco, CA. She is often planning her next trip to a Disney theme park.
