Web Developer [ Sept 1999 - Mar 2003 ]

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When I worked at ChemConnect, it was a business-to-business eCommerce trading site. Its primary focus was the trade of bulk chemicals between buyers and sellers via Java and .NET based web applications. It also offered a vertical Chemical News Portal (MyChemConnect) for its members, based on the Yahoo News portal paradigm.

Subsequently, the etrading floors have been sold off and the company now appears to be involved in supply chain management.

I reported into the Design and Delivery team and then later, into the Engineering department. My role was concerned with the maintenance of web sites, a news portal and some associated e-trading floor web applications written in Perl and Java.
