Solution architect, developer leader, and technical responsible, head of design and software architect for refactoring of Faros IDM solution. Scope for the project (SCRUM) was to rewrite a system implementing a new architecture and with resources distributed across the world, Sweden, USA, Poland and India.

Efforts to move from a monolith application design to a system with loosely coupled domains over a period of 3½ years without disrupting production was successfully finished. The result was verified by looking at non-functional qualities such as scalability, modifiability, supportability and how well the new architecture supported them. Worked as a scum team leader, developer leader and lead designer partly located in Bangalore, India to secure delivery of Faros refactoring project.
My efforts from a 3 month period in Bangalore resulted in an increased velocity from 30% to 50%.
