Overall, your resume is well-organized and presents your experience and skills in a clear manner. Here are some areas where you could improve your resume:

  1. Add a Professional Summary: Consider adding a professional summary at the beginning of your resume that highlights your key skills and experience in the software engineering field. This can help to grab the attention of the hiring manager and provide a quick overview of your qualifications.
  2. Use Bullet Points to Highlight Achievements: Your bullet points under each job title are informative but could benefit from emphasizing your achievements more. Use bullet points to highlight specific achievements such as successful software deployment or innovative methodologies and best practices introduced.
  3. Specify Dates: It is recommended to include the month and year for each job position, as hiring managers often look for this information.
  4. Add Metrics: Whenever possible, add metrics to demonstrate the impact of your work. For example, instead of simply saying you helped generate revenue, provide specific numbers such as “generated $18K in new license sales within the first few weeks of new product release”.
  5. Edit Technical Tools Section: The technical tools section can be trimmed down to include only the most relevant and recent technologies used. For example, rather than mentioning “and more,” consider specifying the technologies you have used most frequently or that are most relevant to the positions you are applying for.
  6. Format Consistency: Ensure that the formatting of your resume is consistent throughout the document. For example, make sure that the font, font size, and bullet points are consistent in all sections of the resume.
  7. Add Certifications: If you have any relevant certifications, it would be beneficial to include them in your education section.
