Demo and Load Test Development – Humanify (Teletech)

Worked directly with the CTO and Director of Solutions to develop four systems: a platform for quickly developing custom technology demos, a real-time chat load test system, a point-and-click API validator, and an authentication gateway microservice.

Demo Platform allowed sales engineers to quickly and easily build sales demos using reusable widgets.

The Chat load test system simulated agents and customers allowing us to stress test chat infastructure across availability zones. Offered a realtime d3.js based interface for monitoring progress and latency of the load test. Supported archiving and "replaying" the load test results into a file for investigating issues that may have occured during the run.

Built a point and click tool for use by customer support for troubleshooting API configuration and setup. Before this tool support had to escalate to ops for most testing issues.

The authentication gateway acted as a bridge between an iOS app and an LDAP server for authentication exposed via REST API.
