    Senior Full-Stack Developer - Ruby on Rails

    Russia - Last active: 08/27/2014 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

    With experience in programming for over 14 years, I've been doing Ruby & Ruby on Rails web development for the last 4+ years. I love concentrating on the end result and final polish - that's what user will see and interact with. As a result of this thoroughness and attention to detail, my open-source history viewing plugin for Miranda IM (http://addons.miranda-im.org/details.php?id=2995) became Miranda's de-facto standard. In addition to ruby, I know and use the following frameworks/technologies: CSS, AJAX, HAML, SLIM, SASS, SQL (MS SQL, SQLite, MySQL, PostgreSQL), NoSQL (MongoDB). My main expertise is Ruby (and Rails) - I've got 2nd place in oDesk Coding Challenge among Ruby developers. Also, I'm in the top 10% in Ruby and Ruby on Rails tests on oDesk. My projects do deployment, server provisioning and production error reporting automatically. I use Capistrano to deploy projects, Ansible for server provisioning and New Relic with Airbrake or Rollbar to monitor app in production. I can read other languages, like php, java, perl, python, c/c++. https://github.com/artemf/

    Team Lead, Senior Ruby on Rails, co-founder at RM

    Ukraine - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 1

    I'm a Tech Lead with about 8 years experience in web-development and about 4 years in Ruby on Rails. I have in portfolio more than 40+ finished rails projects from social platforms and e-commerce to SaaS. I'm self motivated, can solve complex tasks in a short time. In the past two years my main roles were architecture planning, choosing the right technology stack using the client's requirements, development management, team management I like Agile and use it every day - iterations, scrum daily meetings, retrospectives. I like confident code and TDD/BDD. I'm experienced in RSpec, Capybara and Cucumber. Often I help clients to understand what will be the best development approach for them. Do they need only MVP or there is a sense in building full version. What technologies are best for their project. Plan deadlines and budget. I'm very familiar with AWS technologies stack - setup EC2 instance from scratch, configure balance loader(EBL), setup push notifications service(SNS), emails(SES), database instances(RDS), and other services I have an experience in buiding a high-load applications, huge processing centers with 1,000,000 processed jobs daily(in Sidekiq), PostgreSQL database size more than 500GB and everything places on EC2 instance with 32 Cores and 68GB RAM. That was very excited. I'm a fun of continues integration and continues deploy practices. I also have experience in front-end development: JavaScript on advanced level, canvas, CoffeeScript, web-sockets(socket.io) with node.js back-end, backbone.js, Ember.js In the past years there is a trend to have an application with RESTful JSON API built in Ruby on Rails. I have experience in building more than 5 different APIs for different projects. Some of them were versioning and have up to v4. There is always a challange to support old versions, but we successfully doing it. Some have HIPAA protection, one application had a really complex structure of API URLs but it was very easy to work with it in the end since we built it human readable. Thanks for you time!

    United States - Last active: 05/12/2014 - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 6

    Do you need someone to Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE Method) training courses? Do you want to make sure your learners get the most out of those courses, and that you are getting the best result possible for your dollars spent? You need me. I have degrees in marketing (B.Sc.) and education (M.A.), and am a current part time doctoral (Ed.D.) student where my area of research is on maximizing long-term learning outcomes from training programs. This gives me a strong foundation of math, statistics, research methodology, and teaching pedagogy to build on. I have a strong publication and conference presentation history, and I am happy to share my knowledge of learning pedagogy and materials development with anyone. I also have a proven history of materials development, having published more than 20 textbooks used in millions of lessons every year. I have trained thousands of employees in skills such as business communication, regulatory compliance, technology usage, adult learning pedagogy, and even retail sales. I started my teaching career in Japan, and soon became a lecturer at Waseda University. There, I really developed as a teacher and learned firsthand that results-oriented teaching was best. As I got better at teaching and knew more about pedagogy, I started getting hired as a consultant for various companies in Japan. I was able to bring great success to all my projects, and soon was consulting for Global Fortune 500 companies such as Nissan, Nippon Steel, and Teijin Pharmaceuticals. I always approached each client’s situation with open eyes and a solid understanding of how people learn. Years later I was given a chance to lead a massive retraining initiative for a chain of schools in Japan called Gaba, which involved the creation of an entirely new blended learning curriculum, the introduction of the first online learning tools used there, and the training of more than a thousand teachers in how to use these new online tools and materials. This required extensive data collection, assessment, and description. I worked every day with both front-line teachers and senior leadership to achieve the learning outcomes we needed. After two years, the teaching and learning had improved greatly, and the new curriculum was working well. I then decided to return to the USA. Most recently, I was working for the U.S. Department of Defense, developing and presenting employee training in adult learning theory, learning materials development, and eLearning tool usage. There, I created offline and eLearning materials for employee education programs, and worked with subject matter experts to create software usage and regulatory compliance workshops for teachers.

And I’d love to work for you.

As a native German with professional experience in the areas of administration, finance and tourism, as well as daily use of both languages and regular visits to Germany, I have both the knowledge of the language and insight in the culture. I continuously further my education not only in the linguistic area but also in areas such as software development and financial topics to be able to provide a broad spectrum of high quality translations.

    Founder of 3 startups, 2 acquisitions.

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago

    I know you. You're probably half an hour into browsing for someone competent and you've dug up nothing but rubbish. The key to success is all about... manipulating conversions. I take your fragile struggling business, and mold it into a kick ass empire that'll be around for your grandkids. I know exactly what your users want, how they want it and what will make them come back for more. Through a series of conversion optimizations and marketing strategies, paired with powerful branding, I'll drive customers away from your competition and to your door step. Still reading this? You're already being converted. See how that works? Here's the shit I've done because you probably care about it: I've been a founder of three start-ups. Two of them were acquired and killed off because it rocked the status quo. You're looking at the third one. I've been grilled and have survived YCombinator, Angelpad, and 500 startup interviews. Piece of cake. I've backpacked across South America and South Asia with zero cash. I survived by talking my way into getting food, a hot shower, and a couple of bachelorettes. Takeaway: I've been there. Done that. If you want your business to grow, you're looking at possibly the one person that can do so. STOP wasting your time by reading profiles that were written months ago, and start talking to me in real-time. The contact button is on the right. If you can't find it, then I can't help you.
