About


Greetings! My name is Thomas Thompson and I am currently an M.S. in Computer Science student at NJIT. I am also a graduate from the Rutgers School of Engineering and certified Web Developer from the Rutgers Coding Bootcamp.

This is my story. While working in operations at Amazon.com, I developed a growing interest in computer science that has since turned into a full-blown passion. As a person who lives and breathes data, I strive to layer my newfound software skillset on top of my engineering and operations background to develop business intelligence applications that measure, track, and improve productivity.

My industry experience includes 3 years with Optessa, Inc, where I was involved in all aspects of the software developent lifecycle. As an Application Specialist, I was involved in gathering requirements, drafting technical and functional requirements, testing, tuning, and supporting Optessa MLS implmentations across the world. Later, as an Engine Developer, I was able to build and support new features for Optessa's stochastic search optimization engine.

The specific software development skills in my toolbelt include: Java, JavaScript, jQuery, NodeJS, Express, ReactJS, HTML5/CSS3, Bootstrap, Materialize, Git, Responsive Design, XML, JSON, MySQL, MongoDB, AJAX, and Database Design.

In addition to my web development skills, I am a Certified Oracle Associate Java Programmer and have familiarity with Python, Matlab, Excel VBA, C and C++. Please check out some of my projects in the portfolio section below! Note that I will continue to add new passion projects as they are completed, so please be sure to come back in the future to see how my portfolio progresses!
