"Probably the accomplishment I am most proud of in my career was during my last position. The systems I was working on were used for online transaction processing or OLTP. There was a large volume of transactions, and the response time was extremely slow. My team and I investigated this and determined the tables' structure required multiple and repetitive queries for the data needed to complete the transactions. We restructured the tables, which resulted in a 60% decrease in processing time. This created a better customer experience and resulted in a 25% increase in sales during the next quarter."
