The IT Department at Copart is dedicated to fostering a collaborative environment and always looks for ways to develop cutting edge technology. But what does that really mean? How is that actually a part of our day-to-day work in the office?
We hosted our first Making Their Mark roundtable event with three of our experienced IT team members, Asma Qureshi, Luke Pfaff and Vladimir Safin to get to know what it’s really like working at Copart. Throughout the week we will feature what they had to say about different aspects of their experience working at Copart as well as what advice they offer IT professionals who want to work at technology companies like Copart.
What are some recent cutting-edge projects going on at Copart? Read about what our Making Their Mark roundtable guests have been up to!
Luke Pfaff, Project Manager
“Recently I worked on the ReplaceMyCar infrastructure migration. I worked with a dedicated group to migrate a large 3rd party application that was built with different technologies, in house. This challenged our team at every turn, but we were able to complete the project three weeks ahead of schedule. I was proud to see the teams work closely together to get great results and learn new processes along the way.”
Vladimir Safin, Software Engineer
“One of my most recent projects that I have proudly been a part of is IDS (Imaging and Document Services). This is probably the first project where new micro-services architecture was used in order to completely replace a part of our daily business operations that was originally performed by a legacy AS/400 system. That project has taught me a lot.”
Asma Qureshi, Software Engineer
“Earlier this year, I finished automating our software testing suite for the G1 Member website. I am proud of the results of this project not just because I taught myself Java and Selenium, but I also completed the project all by myself. I commend Copart Management especially for creating the environment that enables an employee to achieve this type of growth.
But, one of my favorite projects that I have been a part of is when I was on the Employee Development project to teach Software QA automation to all QA personnel. I was a part of the group of teachers for the project, and I was paired to teach Ram Mehta. It was a wonderful experience to show someone else what I have learned and see your mentee grow and automate tests.”
