Hutchinson, Minnesota
Machine Vision Software Engineer at Hutchinson Technology Inc.

Junior-level machine vision software developer with 3.5 years experience in parallel and memory-
intensive programming for automated defect detection. I’ve grown to love the challenge of analyzing
images for defects and analyzing data trends, and am continually amazed at how a system with so
many moving parts can perform so well.

I was able to wear many hats as a software developer at TDK – HTI. I designed and maintained highly
paralleled code for one particular machine that had 9 PCs and 40 processors on each PC. I also had
the opportunity to develop an application that generated synthetic images from CAD on the same
machine for use in inspection. In addition, I picked up skills in Microsoft and Oracle databases such
as querying using T-SQL and PL/SQL and using stored procedures.

I love developing in C# and the Visual Studio environment, but am always open to learning new
languages and would like to explore web development or other programming fields as well. Currently
looking for a new company to call home.
