TruU, Inc.

Platform Architect

At TruU I am the technical expert across our stack. As the Platform Architect, I am responsible for taking challenging customer requirements and translating them into scaleable solutions for our engineering team to implement. Having a highly technical full-stack+ background, I am often implementing large parts of these solutions from backend (Java, Python, Node, .Net) to front end (Angular8+). Additionally, my role requires me to be an expert in AWS. I have fully designed and implemented TruU's highly available, multi-AZ, multi-region cloud complete with auto-scaling via ECS, latency-driven Geo-DNS using Amazon's Global Accelerator, and failover support across the entire stack. This HA stack is replicated across 4 separate environments to facilitate quality testing and hardening. I am also responsible for TruU's continuous integration / continuous deployment (CICD) pipeline, which utilizes TeamCity to automatically test and deploy code to our HA cloud across every environment. About TruU: TruU enables enterprises to eliminate passwords and badges to truly revolutionize the way workforces experience their workplace. Using specialized AI and machine learning technology, our solution identifies individuals implicitly by who they are continuously and in real-time, leading to more secure and fluid workforce authentication and access. TruU offers unique passwordless identity through adaptive MFA built on biometrics and behavioral identity that unifies access to physical and digital resources across the workplace. I work at the core of the TruU Identity Platform. On a typical day I‘ll write code in a variety of languages and architectures (Spring, Django, Angular, .NET, etc)
