To G5 Hiring Manager:

As a Bend resident and technology enthusiast for the past 13 years, I have always been interested in G5's business, but no open position has truly been an exact fit for my skillset and experience until the Technical Analytics Manager posting.

  • In my past, I have managed a large company's analytics in a cross-department manner that involved coordination and communication among disparate groups.
  • I have managed teams for the last 10 years, including offshore members.
  • I have been developing software for the past 5 years, including web applications, APIs, machine learning, chatbots, and management & analytics portals. I have been responsible for planning, design, development, deployment, testing, and monitoring these applications.
  • I have very strong (10+ years) SQL experience, as well as the less structured data formats. I have lots of JavaScript experience, including TypeScript and React (this cover letter and resume are written in it). On the back-end, I do tend to prefer C# to Python for performance reasons, but I have some experience with Python as well.
  • I love to learn new things, and spend my free time watching courses on Pluralsight.

If you want more information than I have provided in either my resume or this cover letter, please see my LinkedIn. You may also ask Andy Warren, a current employee of yours, as we worked together for several years.

I look forward to the challenge. Thank you for your consideration.
