Hello,
I'm not an expert in mba admission but since i come from a high ranked eng school i'm willing to evaluate your profile from this data.
1/You have an OK undergraduate level (Overal good gpa + nice awards) (+)
2/Your GMAT is ENOUGH for the schools you are targetting (++)
3/on the extracurricular side , you showed leadership and volunteering skills (++)

Here is what you can do to make a stellar application :
-Get the best recommendation you can from your boss and people who supervised you on extracurriculars
-Stick your resume to 1 page
-Focus on the impact you achieved on your work experience use this kind of words (achieved 5% reduction in costs, lead a team of...)
-Since you have a technical background have a clear idea why you want that mba and show it on essays

I hope i helped you a bit.
