About Me

Hello! My given name is Yiping, but I usually go by Allison.

I am an engineering professional with a background in software engineering and economic analysis. I use both experiences to design and develop data-minded applications that support machine learning and artificial intelligence initiatives.

Besides at a library learning new things, you can find me at a nearby café enjoying a cup of coffee. I am also an avid traveler – I like going to places I haven’t been before. Some pictures of my travels can be found on the gallery page.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any inquiries!

Software Development Engineer
Jun 2023 – Present Burlingame, California
Amazon (AWS)
Software Development Engineer - AWS TADA
Oct 2022 – Jun 2023 Santa Clara, California
Data Engineer - READI
Oct 2021 – Oct 2022 Remote

As a data engineer on the Recruiting Engine Analytics and Data Insights (READI) team, I help design and build Amazon’s next generation data platform (Recruiting Engine Data Library - REDL) for recruiting analytics teams.

Here are some of my highlights at this position:

  • Designed and implemented REDL’s internal data lake utilizing AWS Lake Formation; module was crucial in delivering data to end customers and has since then enabled analytics teams to onboard to REDL
  • Mentored a junior data engineer and helped guide his intern project to completion; project was presented to the engineering team, senior manager, and director
  • Assisted and owned the design and implementation of REDL’s Airflow scheduling module; built Airflow’s main infrastructure in AWS and conceptualized REDL’s DAG designs for flavored ETL workflows
  • Designed and implemented REDL’s ingestion engine which pulls data from Amazon’s internal data lake into REDL accounts for further processing
  • Designed and implemented REDL’s main infrastructure using AWS CDK; REDL infrastructure is built entirely in native AWS and supports modules ranging from ingestion engines to the Airflow scheduling component
  • Profiled both legacy and undocumented recruiting datasets within Amazon; profiling enabled the design phase of analytical datasets

Software Developer I - Data Science Engineering
Aug 2020 – Oct 2021 Austin, Texas

As a software developer on the Data Science Engineering team, I apply software engineering fundamentals on data science initiatives. I work on Auto-ML and data pipelines.

Here are some of my highlights at this position:

  • Designed and developed a dynamic metrics generator that evaluates efficacy of machine learning models running through the auto-ML pipeline; estimated to be the highest value component of the data science engineering team
  • Conceptualized the POC Java implementation of unique identifier keys among customer groups, boosting data lineage capabilities for all models running through the Auto-ML pipeline
  • Campaigned internal customer interaction by heading E2E efforts with downstream development teams and acted as head liaison between the team and data scientists

Software Developer I (NERD) - Data Science Engineering
Aug 2020 – Jun 2021 Austin, Texas

As a software developer hired within the New Employee Recruitment and Development program (NERD), I utilized skills learned in college and applied them in an industry setting.

Here are some of my highlights at this position:

  • Led a group of associate engineers to design and develop a CLI application which enables an OS sandbox on Windows and teaches users how to use bash; currently used by data scientists entering software development space
  • Facilitated lectures on big data analytics and data engineering for new NERDs; received internal recognition for technological sessions
  • Attained two certifications: MTA - Introduction to Programming in Java and Professional Scrum Developer
