    Web Developer and Systems Architect

    United States - Last active: 05/31/2014 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 1

    Programming has always been a calling for me, so it makes sense to do it for a living. However, I've got a number of other callings including music, photography, engineering, biking, baking and travel, so I don't want to put myself on a corporate career path that forces me into 1-week-off-per-year jobs. I've tried that and - luckily - escaped, hopefully never to return to Corporate America to discuss Facebook tactics with the Marketing Exec on a lunch meeting. My objective is to do what I love: to create and maintain beautiful solutions for small businesses and real people - to create logic from the chaos of life.

    Sr. Ruby on Rails Developer | Web Project Manager

    Canada - Last active: 10/28/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

    I'm a professional web-developer with 7 years experience in Ruby on Rails. You may find my pay rate higher than of other developers. Well, there're 4 good reasons for it: • When you hire me you pay only for productive work. I'm not billing my time spent on googling, reading manuals, etc. Only time spent on programming your particular task. • I'm not Mr. Know-it-all, but I know a lot. My experience includes coding on Ruby, C++, Java, Perl and PHP; HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and responsive design for mobile platforms. 8 years of MySQL and Postgres databases. NoSQL solutions like HandlerSocket and Redis. Searching engines Sphinx and Solr. • I'm a universal soldier, as good in server-side coding as in front-end development. Need to develop a completely new social network or clone some tips and tricks from existing web-site? Or just want to grab data from online shop and upload to yours? Set up Nginx with Unicorn or PHP5-FPM? I can do all with no hassle. • Some developers don't like to manage with others' code. I love it. All my career I have been modifying someone else's code and feel quite comfortable with it. Keywords: Agile, Rails 2/3/4, PostgreSQL, MySQL, NoSQL, Sphinx, Solr, HTML5/CSS3, jQuery, Twitter Bootstrap, Backbone.js, Nginx, Apache, Git, AWS, Heroku, responsive design, data scraping.
