Microsoft

Microsoft, Program Manager

During my second internship at Microsoft, I worked cross-team to design, manage, code, and onboard services (including Skype and Universal Store) to deployment automation extensions for Visual Studio, Azure Portal, and Jenkins.

For a side project, I co-founded a 30-member intern team to overhaul Microsoft sustainability initiatives. I also identified services and led onboarding efforts to move Bing, DocumentDB, and Skype onto the Azure Service Deploy infrastructure.

Microsoft, Program Manager

During my first internship at Microsoft, I created end-to-end Azure deployment metric pipelines and insight reporting dashboards used by Skype, Bing, Office 365, and more.

As side projects, I extended the Azure Deployment Manager infrastructure, managed the bridging of feature gaps across deployment platforms, enforced compliance by onboarding teams to the right tools, and generated strategic plans for new features. All of my work was documented with extensive end-to-end tutorials and code repos for new users.
