I was a member of the streaming operations team. My employment with AOL started as a internship in the Summer of 2002, after working into the late Fall my position was up. I was hired as a full time employee in the Spring of 2003. While there I worked as a Systems Administrator, Systems Developer, and Oracle Database Administrator.
- Contributed as a systems administrator by managing a 1200+ host network comprised of Solaris and Linux hosts.
