Jeremy Davis

Software Developer

United States - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 1

Having started programming at the age of eight, I have built quite a bit of experience in making desktop applications. I began with game development, but I soon branched out to other types of programs. I also grew up overseas, where I learned Dutch and French, and my history of computer use has taught me the skills necessary for data entry and transcription, although I prefer to program. I am also fairly proficient in German. I am currently attending Indiana Wesleyan University to earn a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics, and I may continue my education in graduate school. Over the summer of 2014, I worked as a Javascript developer for Nexcommunications, Inc. to earn money for the next school year's tuition. My employers were so impressed that they offered me a 50-percent raise if I would stay for the next semester. You will not be disappointed by my work.
