Behind the Scenes: Meet Ruxandra

Meet Ruxandra, Team CMES.

Ruxandra summed up her CMES experiences by declaring, “When it comes to CMES work, we suffer together when something goes wrong and we share the happiness when the apps are finally up and running.”

Ruxandra describes her contribution to CMES. “To summarize what I usually do for the project, I will say that I do all the tedious work both for English and Spanish versions. More specifically, I update the training materials and upload the CME content on a monthly basis.  Even though managing the database through our admin panel should not be very complicated, I never had a dull moment since I joined this project. Either the scope of the project changed, the data files type changed or other constraints occurred. I had to be flexible and work closely with our wonderful developers to address all these issues. Lastly, I tend to be the troublemaker, and this makes me to be maybe the most “hated” person in the group.  Due to the nature of my job (IT Auditor), once I start analyzing and testing the applications for errors, I always manage to identify something else that needs to be fixed. Therefore, one of my duties is to escalate these issues to our hard-working developers. After I usually ruin their weekend or their vacation, I get to verify all the bug fixes and only after that I happily return to test the application from a user perspective.”

“In conclusion, when I don’t focus on the content management, the research aspect of the project or the blog maintenance, I love to get involved with the super-technical issues the team confronts. Finally, I love spending time with the CMES team and learn from them as much as I can. This is because I have the ultimate advantage to be the youngest and nevertheless the luckiest for being surrounded by so many smart and wonderful people.”
