Employment

Total Care Auto – Senior Software Engineer

Sandy, UT, US

May 2014 - Current

Total Care Auto provides Vehicle, Credit and Appearance protection on vehicles as a part of the Larry H. Miller Group. I have been working on the web application that our agents use to sell our products to the customers and the admin for our internal users to manage the application.

When I started, the main application I supported was a rails 5/mysql app with jruby services. There were several constraints in place that were blocking some of the bigger needs from the business. The business decided to move forward with rewriting major parts of the application. We decided on Go (backend) for the performance and light resources relative to Ruby/Rails while also leveraging Go's concurrency framework to reduce our footprint of microservices (less complicated system architecture for development ease and less AWS resources for lower cost).
