Tyler Kenney

Software Engineer

About Me

My name is Tyler Kenney and I am a Software Engineer. My focus is typically on backend technologies using languages like .NET Core, Kotlin, and even some Java. I have been involved with several teams at my current company, so my experience stretches across multiple domains including commerce systems, user authentication and authorization, maintaining and protecting user PII, marketing and transactional email and SMS systems, CI/CD pipelines, and lots more. In my spare time, I also enjoy tinkering with my homelab, and playing all kinds of games on my PC.

Software Engineer II

March 2022 - present

In addition to the responsibilities of a SE1, as a Software Engineer II I am expected to take on more lead roles during projects, as well as having a more technical understanding of our entire domain. I communicate timeframes, requirements, and “de-techified” explainations to our stakeholders to allow them to understand any work we are doing.
