Take me for a test-drive, for a fraction of the hourly rate. Maximum 10 Hours at USD$5.00.
I have developed a wide variety of applications over the years, and I have great expertise in Database-driven Development using SQL, MySQL, JavaDB (Apache Derby, IBM Cloudscape), MS SQLServer, Oracle, etc.
I also mainly work using Remote Procedure Calls using RMI, Enterprise Java Beans, Application Containers (Servers) like Apache Tomcat and Oracle Glassfish.
I have knowledge in Networking(CCNA level), and Web Development using HTML, JSP, Servlets, Java WebStart, Java Application Clients using ACC (desktop applications delivered automatically through HTTP) etc.
Ranging from command-line to Desktop or Web applications, I have the skills and motivation to fulfill any requirement.
I'm interested in research and development, new technologies and moderate challenges.
I've worked for nationally and internationally known companies like:
- Novell, Inc. (NASDAQ:NOVL) (one of the top technology corporations)
- Cemex (NYSE:CX) (second largest cement producer in the world)
- HEB (retail grocery stores ranked 12 in Forbes' 2011 list of "America's Largest Private Companies" and largest privately held company in Texas)
- Banca Afirme (Banking and Insurance)
- Qualtia Alimentos (one of the largest food manufacturers in Mexico)
I've learned english travelling and have lived in several coutries. Since I was born, and as of 2012, I've lived a total of 11 years in Venezuela (my home country), 5 years in Guatemala, 3 years in Jamaica, and for the last 9 years in Mexico. I've also travelled to the U.S.A. and Spain (my second nationality).
I achieved a score of 98.97% (670 over 677) in the TOEFL (Test Of English as a Foreign Language); I can translate any document with 100% accuracy and I also try to make sure nothing gets lost in translation.
I have very good Math and Reasoning skills as well. I'm interested in statistics, in particular about making Banzhaf-Power-Index charts.
