Matthew Janzen


To obtain a summer employment position where I can contribute and expand my skills in quality assurance and program development.

Professional Experience

Scientific Computer Programming
Waterloo, ON
I am currently enrolled in a python scripting course at the University of Waterloo, where I am learning scripting techniques, function optimisation and the python language. Using these skills I am successfully writing functioning python programs. My base understanding of this scripting language will allow me to quickly learn similar automation languages.

2008 - 2010
Assured Software Ltd.
Kelowna, B.C
Jr. Developer
My responsibilities at Assured Software were to review the product before release to ensure it met the requirements and to confirm that previous bugs were correctly fixed. I was given tasks and specification sheets and was responsible to make sure the product matched the specifications. This position required attention to detail, accuracy and decision making skills. I was able to work independently to complete my tasks on schedule and also enjoyed working with others on critical issues.

2007 - 2009
A&W Inc.
Kelowna, B.C
Shift Supervisor
As Shift Supervisor I was required to receive and order stock, as well as doing a monthly inventory. I was in charge of the kitchen staff, which meant that I decided which stations people worked at. I was required to keep orders moving quickly and to balance cash on closing. This position required me to be quick on my feet and allowed me to develop supervisor skills.

Summer 2007
Harvest Golf Club
Kelowna, B.C
Servers Assistant
I was responsible for clearing tables, Dinning Room setup, and table service under the supervision of the Waiting Staff. During this position I learned good customer service, how to work quickly and effectively under pressure, and how to identify tasks that needed to be done without being asked to do them.
