    Systems Engineer

    United States - Last active: 12/02/2013 - Tests: 2

    I am a well-rounded systems engineer with experience in a wide array of operating systems and applications. You should hire me if you need somebody who wants to understand your environment and organization, and utilize their technical skills to improve and optimize everything. You shouldn't hire me if you want a pair of hands to blindly enter commands into a command line, or make system changes without proper knowledge and planning. I'm enthusiastic and enjoy optimizing and designing systems to achieve what my clients need. Hire me if you want a partner, not a worker.
