  • Apollo Aviation Group
    Miami, FL
    March 2013 - April 2016
    Lead Software Development Engineer

    • Leading and developing in a small IT group in charge of developing Apollo Aviation proprietary software projects. 
    • These projects consist of Windows Form, Web Services, Windows Services, iPhone and Android applications for Financial Modeling, Technical, Legal and Accounting departments at Apollo. These projects aim at gathering data from different resources (spreadsheets, email content, user data entry, third-part applications, etc.) and creating a centralized repository and analysis system for different departments. Creating reports, forecasting models, email alerts, scheduling reminders, which are essential tasks of the business, are automated through these software modules. Day-to-day activities of Apollo personnel have been transitioned to be performed using one or several modules developed. These day-to-day activities include acquiring airplane or engines, performing technical checks, tracking the lease, marketing, or consignment status of assets, tracking performance of models for forecasting revenues, etc. 
    • The use of these modules has increased the productivity of Apollo personnel, has increased the accuracy of the business operations, and has reduced the number of errors and the need to hire more workforce despite the increased volume in the business.
