I basically owe everything in my career to this point to my colleagues and opportunities at Opower / Oracle.
As a team, we helped reduce global energy consumption by 31 terrawatt-hours (and counting!). That's the same as:
- Charging 2.7 billion smartphones 📱🔌
- Changing 8.3 million incandescent lightbulbs to LEDs 💡
- Planting 363 million plants for carbon capture 🌳
- Not burning 16.7 billion pounds of coal 🔥
- Taking 3.3 million passenger vehicles off the road for an entire year 🚗
In my last few years, I helped design and build the third generation of our flagship product, the Home Energy Report (HER). As of 2022, over 1,000,000,000 HERs have been sent across the world (via email and paper).
Some statistics from my time there between 2014-07-07 and 2020-01-14:
- Wrote 6 company-wide RFCs (request for comments)
- Filed 936 and closed 1332 tickets in Jira
- 5,848 commits
- 3,162 pull requests
- Code merged into 24 github organizations across 252 repositories
My yearly contributions increased every single year:
And I learned a hell of a lot along the way. forever 💙.
