    Instructional Designer/ E-Learning Specialist

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

    E-learning perfectly combines my artistic/ creative design talent with my passion for training, development, and education. Having worked with both Instructor Led Training and Computer Based Training in my past management experiences, it is a pleasure to be on the development/ design end of production. I feel it is imperative to tap into the knowledge of what drives motivating, successful education in training across industries. The trick is presenting it in a way that is interesting to the presentee and in turn effective in training. I earned my Psychology degree from The University of California, San Diego with an emphasis on Development & Education, and a minor in Visual Arts. I consider myself fortunate to have continued to develop both areas of my passion: working with people and the arts. I have spent over 10 years in staff development, building effective and efficient teams through my roles in management. While putting a special focus on driving individual strengths and positive working environments. My experience has led me to a proficient understanding of sales, customer service, revenue management, staff development, and creative thinking. My artistic repertoire includes such experience as: Custom mural design, Advertising, Jewelry design, fabrication, and course outline/instruction, PowerPoint Development & Design, Articulate Storyline Development. I am detail oriented and enjoy challenging myself to learn new skills, develop, and grow.

    Senior Project Manager/Product Developer

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 10

    I have a comprehensive background in product development/project management within the confines of international medical device regulations. I thrive on taking vague ideas and ill-defined needs and turning them into concrete reality. I can start a medical device company from the ground up and I can do it on schedule. This includes... From a Regulatory perspective: --Initial regulatory requirements analysis for new markets (EU, Brazil, Australia, US, Canada, etc.) --Identification of applicable test protocols (ISO standards, etc.) and management of test houses --Interfacing with regulatory agencies and identifying consultants --Writing of regulatory submissions such as FDA 510(k)s --Quality System development and implementation to required standards (ISO 13485, FDA, CMDCAS, etc.) --Identification of loop holes and temporary workarounds to ease implementation pains and maintain profitability From a Project perspective: --Using good interpersonal skills to keep people motivated and excited --"Conducting the orchestra", developing a logical rhythm of events and ensuring timely completion of tasks --Turning "unknown unknowns" into "known unknowns", forseeing problems before they arise and altering the "orchestra" accordingly --Coordination of teams on an international level --Intelligently focusing energy on tasks with the highest variability, including procurement of additional expertise as necessary --Always keeping an open dialog about the day-to-day changes in the "Good/Fast/Cheap, pick any two but only two of the three" trade-offs in milestone achievement From a Product perspective: --Development of design parameters from organization input (Sales, Marketing, Support, etc.) --Nitty-gritty technical work like engineering drawings/drafting, statistical analysis, resdesigns due to manufacturing constraints, component supplier identification. --Identification, qualification, and day-to-day management of international manufacturers --Design History File/Technical File development and maintenance --Design Transfer for complex electromechanical devices From an Operations perspective: --Part Number/Drawing Number/Revision Control development and implementation --Engineering Change Order workflow and impacts --Purchasing-Manufacturing-Sales-Shipment procedures and throughput --ERP/MRP implementation including workarounds for system limitations I am a strong believer in a person's word. If I tell you I'm going to do something by a certain date that is my word and I'm going to get it done, hell or high-water. I don't mess around: I live on a remote homestead so I grow my own food, build my own structures, fix my own car, brew my own beer. My entire life requires a high level of precision execution every single day, failure is not an option.

    Graphic Designer

    Serbia - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 7

    My ideas begin with the belief that for good design, everything must have a purpose. When everything has a purpose, design is useful, beneficial and aids understanding. Good design comes from a unity of purpose that’s visible when the client’s message, the product and the presentation are all interrelated. My design process starts with detailed planning. This helps create economy of design, an economy that’s not wasteful, respects our client’s investment of time and money and is built to last. I strive for communication that is clear, simple and centered on the message. I seek an appropriate and just solution in all jobs, whether that’s a full re brand for a large company or major public body, or a business card for a small start-up.
