Technical Support Manager Resume Profile

  • An example of the above tools can be found in my work for Unitil where using a SOAP interface I designed within Websphere I passed XML scripted SQL commands to update information between the AS/400 used when clients called with issues with their power and/or gas delivery and the Microsoft SQL server 2005 used to dispatch drivers to solve these calls . Information traveled back and forth including status updates so if the customer called back they can say we are aware of your issue and a driver has been dispatched, or the driver determined you need a part and that part is in route, or your power or gas has been restored.
  • I tried to explain a very complicated process here in simple terms and briefly though I could explain it in more detail in person. My resume as you can tell is geared toward the AS/400. However my experiences are not limited to this single platform.
  • At Liberty I worked on a replatforming of an exclusive AS/400 product now being run in SQL with a brief C script which does error check prior to loading information into the DB2/400 databases.
  • At Thompson Center Arms I was placed as Team Lead to replace an outgoing manager after Smith and Wesson purchased them. My primary role was to develop a team capable of supporting the organization including Servers Windows 2003, Email, SQL , AS/400, desktops Windows and Linux , communications within the network, developing standards, installing software to bring the organization into compliance with laws like SOX Sarbaines Oxley and to foster an IT as a service organization within the user community.
  • I would love an opportunity to discuss my experience with you and how it might apply within your organization. With over 23 years in Information Systems I believe my skill set will be an asset to where ever I go. Over these years I've been asked to do many things and each time I was asked to do something I didn't know I'd inform my bosses that this was something new to me but I'll tackle it with enthusiasm and that I looked forward to the challenge. I believe nothing is impossible but sometimes to get what is needed done requires us to step outside out comfort zone and think beyond the limited box from which we view most challenges.
  • During 2011 I have done several small sideline projects supporting both GENTRAN EDi and JDE World software both on AS/400 platforms. These projects are not listed here.

Sr. Systems Analyst, Project Manager and Software Developer

  • With over 25 years of experience with IBM midrange family systems and more than 23 years on the AS/400 Model A05 to current iSeries machines. More than 23 years of experience using CL, RPG II-ILE and free and COBOL ILE to develop leading edge software for my clients.

  • Solid project management skills with 20 years managing projects which includes managing budgets, installations, vendors, and personnel. I've managed projects as large as five million dollars and as many as twenty direct reports.
  • In an effort to save time I've not listed but at every assignment I managed the projects I was assigned. Many cases I managed financial and personnel resources associated with the projects. I also didn't list repeatedly RLU, SDA, excreta unless it was required by the customer as a programming standard. I also didn't highlight my COBOL, C/C skills or my HTML, PHP and web based skills as they do not readily apply to my main focus which is as developer, or project/team lead. I can however explain where and when my experiences in these areas apply when asked.
