    In the last 15 years I worked for both startups and large corporations like Electronic Arts, Forbes, Ubisoft, Upwork ( former Elance-oDesk ) and Vodafone managing and recruiting development teams from all over the world. Taking development projects from a simple idea and manage them into a complete product, ready for the market is what i usually do. I also have an awesome network of skilled developers, designers, administrators, business analysts and testers, that i meet during my previous projects and worked together (i am not talking about an agency here, just former reliable colleagues that can be brought asap in a new team or project) After all.....over 1900 hours on Upwork at 5 stars rating cannot be wrong, right?:)
