Responsibilities: Maximum uptime, maintenance and development of Alensa websites

Technologies: .Net 2.0. SQL 2005, Ajax, webservices, XML and XSLT

Recommendations: upon request

Languages: English, Romanian

Description

I’ve joined Alensa team in February 2007 as senior programmer for the company brand new solution – online Healthcare project – www.Alensa.ro, which was developed initially by an outsourcing company for two years. Being a young company, I had to overlook all aspects regarding our web presence from hardware suggestions and server administering to website updating, testing and configuration.

My main responsibilities were to maintain and develop the web based solution using Microsoft ASP .NET / C# and SQL 2000 database. The first task was to upgrade in record time the system from .Net 1.1 and SQL 2000 to the newest reliable platform, which at that time was .Net 2.0 with SQL 2005. Other, but not less important responsibilities, were:

· Administering and server maintenance for Windows 2003 server, but also for IIS 6 and SQL 2005

· Architectural modifications and solution rebuilding to be more easy to use and user friendly

· Creating a real test environment, test cases and bug fixes

· Hardware suggestions, choosing an appropriate hosting partner

· Implementing real time traffic analysis tool to help management department

At the beginning of 2008 I was incharged to coordinate and supervise the entire Alensa software team. It consisted in 4 people who worked on different tasks improving our online platform. The main challenge I found out to be the different language and location, since all were located in Serbia and I was in Romanian office. Nevertheless, my team and I established quickly a good collaboration and I am proud that, after working for a time close together, one of my colleagues was able to took the responsibility of supervising the development and leading the team after I went to studies in RWTH Aachen University.

The platform contains now 2 websites country-wide ( Romania – www.alensa.ro and Serbia – www.alensa.rs ) and we’ve planned to launch next year another 2 in two different countries.

Since my arrival, Alensa established itself as a strong, reliable and trustful partners for its community. We repeatedly improved the website interface to bring it more to the customer needs, improving the modules to allow maximum flexibility – the most important and visible were:  Sale order was redesigned twice to meet the changed requirements, Doctors and Customer accounts updated to be interfaced in a fully featured Health Community etc.

I wish them, both the Alensa team and its users, Good luck and all the Health in the world!

Because they were the best company that proposed Navision alternative to traditional ERP systems in Romania, they implemented a very exigent training system – all new colleagues must learn and become certified Navision programmers. Being among the first that have foreseen the future of Navision in our country, they took the responsibility of preparing us in a not so known at that time Navision area, allowing us to study in depth also by inviting a Microsoft Navision specialist and certified trainer for two weeks and all those efforts translated in my scores at exam – my Certification as Microsoft Navision Developer with very high scores, at first examination 96 points out of 100 and the second 100 from 100.

My activity there as certified developer was intensive after tr
aining period. I have been part of a team that was responsible of one of our most important clients. I did my best in providing best solutions for customer requirements, adapting the solution to their particular needs. They recommended me as “Mr. Radu Poenaru confirmed our expectations and is a hard-working self-starter who invariably understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset, and how to get it done quickly and effectively.
