Michael C. Bowman



I am an experienced software architect from Dayton, Ohio with a focus on web-based technologies, data visualization, and user interface design. Through my experiences as a defense contractor supporting the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), I have led many large scale, technically challenging projects through design, development, and delivery. My experience in a wide variety of software technologies and agile development techniques have enabled me to excel both as a developer and as a team lead. In addition to my day job at Applied Information Sciences, I also teach Computer Science courses to evening students at Sinclair Community College, and am the lead organizer for the Dayton Data Visualization users group.


Applied Information Sciences Principal Software Engineer - Dayton, Ohio - 2014 to Present

Security Clearance: TS/SCI. Provided expert level software development and consultation to NASIC. Led the development of several web-based tools for the processing and exploitation of intelligence data using agile software development. Utilized the latest tools and frameworks (such as AngularJS, D3.js, Leaflet, Django, and GeoServer) to deliver modular web applications that easily integrated with their existing tools and workflows via OGC and RESTful web service interfaces.

Booz Allen Hamilton Lead Associate - Dayton, Ohio - 2011 to 2014

Security Clearance: TS/SCI. Lead Software Engineer for NGA Innovision’s GIAT Research and Development lab at NASIC. The main focus of the lab is the rapid prototyping of new capabilities for use across the intelligence community. Performed a wide variety of software development tasks, from gathering, mining, and warehousing extremely large datasets, to developing forward-looking user interfaces utilizing HTML5, JavaScript, and other cutting-edge technologies. To manage the large number of prototypes and data services we provided to the community, and to facilitate quick bug-fixes and easy maintenance, I set up a continuous delivery service based on Hudson to auto-deploy and install code to production once it had passed unit tests.

Moreover Technologies Senior Software Engineer - Dayton, Ohio - 2010 to 2011

Developed software for a news and social media startup. Utilized cloud computing technologies (Amazon AWS) to scale out content harvesting and mining tasks. Wrote code in an Agile (Scrum) based environment using test-driven development and a continuous integration service (Hudson) to ensure code developed by the team was kept to a high quality.

General Dynamics Principal Software Engineer - Dayton, Ohio - 2007 to 2010

Security Clearance: TS/SCI. Worked as a technical team lead on a number of projects supporting NASIC. In addition to my programming duties, I mentored junior members of the team on software engineering best practices and drove the adoption of agile software development techniques such as Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration, and Scrum, leading to higher quality software developed faster.

Engyro Corporation Senior Software Engineer - Cincinnati, Ohio - 2006 to 2007

Developed several of the Engyro non-Windows monitoring agents for Microsoft's System Center Operations Manager, allowing customers to monitor their Linux/Unix servers and software (such as Apache HTTPD and Oracle DBMS) alongside their Microsoft assets. Worked in a very dynamic environment where schedules and features were constantly changing based upon customer feedback and needs.

Engyro was acquired by Microsoft in March 2007.

Red Hat Senior Software Engineer - Raleigh, North Carolina - 2004 to 2006

The Red Hat Network server allows system administrators to update and manage a large network of Red Hat Linux machines via an easy to use web interface. This includes everything from keeping packages up to date to performing hands-free installations of complete operating systems and configuration file sets. I worked on the server-side team to help deliver bug fixes and new features to customers on a tight release schedule. Day-to-day activities consisted of writing code for the Java web application, documenting code and best practices, writing test plans, preparing level of effort time estimates for project management, and helping team members debug code.
