D. Fisher Evans
Principal Software Engineer
I am a Software Engineer that enjoys working on all aspects of my projects - from planning to deploying to operating. I believe empowering engineers by granting them autonomy to their solutions is the key to awesome results; operations, QA, architecture, design, development: it all belongs to the teams solving the problems. Often times, the missing key to a successful product is direct customer feedback. If we're not solving their problems, we're not doing the right thing.

D. Fisher Evans - Principal Software Engineer
WORK EXPERIENCE
COX AUTOMOTIVE INC. (Burlington, VT)
JOB TITLE
Principal Software Engineer(August 2021 - Present)
Stepping into the Principal role allowed me to champion engineering needs at all levels of the organization: pushing for investment at the business level, helping individual developers and their teams learn new patterns and technologies, building consensus across teams, coordinating work between groups, establishing best practices and documenting lessons learned, mentoring engineers at all levels, and especially making space for others to grow. As principal, I was able to act as a force multiplier for dozens of engineers, growing the organization as a whole.
JOB TITLES
Lead Software Engineer (May 2018 - August 2021)
Senior Software Engineer (Aug 2017 - May 2018)
As a scrum team-lead, my group architected, designed, and implemented an authentication and authorization platform for all of Cox Automotive to adopt. This cloud-native, highly available platform encapsulated OAuth 2.0 API security, user management, permissions and customer organizational APIs. This required frequent communication and collaboration with many various teams all over the United States.
I was crucial in the planning and design of this central platform that supports hundreds of developers and their applications. During this project I helped form and lead a brand new agile scrum team. In addition, I helped interview and bring onboard many team members, both locally and accross state-lines, as the release train grew.
JOB TITLES
Software Engineer II (Jun 2016 - Aug 2017)
Software Engineer I (Nov 2015 - Jun 2016)
My team and I led the forefront of the AWS cloud migration efforts for Dealer.com and Cox Automotive. I played a key role in designing and implementing brand new, cloud-native APIs and data-processing pipelines to support the ingest of hundreds of thousands of digital sales leads per day.
SYSTEMS & SOFTWARE (Williston, VT)
JOB TITLES
Software Engineer (May 2015 - Nov 2015)
