Tech Defender's Data Migration

Experience Information

Employer: Tech Defenders
Job Title: Systems Intern
Major: Computer Science
Received Credit: Yes
Paid: Yes

Description of the Organization

Tech Defenders is an Information Technology Asset Disposition company of around 200 employees. It buys, refurbishes, and repairs devices then resells them.

Description of the Tasks/Projects Completed

Tech Defenders recently switched to a new instance of their cloud storage. One of my main tasks was to migrate this data. I pulled it from their Net Suite instance, and then built a new Postgres database with Google Cloud SQL to move their data to. After the data was moved, I built a front end with R-Shiny so that the other employees could easily access the old data.

Skills/Knowledge Gained Through The Experience

I gained a lot of experience with working with large data sets. This was also the first time I made a R-Shiny application in a professional setting.

Favorite Part of the Experience

My favorite part was working with the other members of the system team to learn how to manage user information. I had never done that kind of project before so it was interesting to learn.

How the Experience Influenced Future Career Goals

The systems team at TD was very close knit. I am beginning my job search this summer and I want to find a job that has a similar company culture to TD.
