    Seasoned IT Pro / Technology Enthusiast / CEH

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 4

    I am an extremely skilled, motivated, and highly knowledgeable IT professional with 15+ years in the IT industry. I am also an EC Council Certified Ethical Hacker, and in addition to security services, I provide a vast array of technical solutions to both businesses and individuals. From network/server/workstation planning and implementation to advanced troubleshooting and traffic analysis, I am THE answer to your technical demands. Add to this the fact that technology isn't just my profession; it's my passion, and you will discover why my clients have been with me for years and wouldn't consider switching. I absorb and become well-versed at any issue thrown my way, and will get to the bottom of whatever roadblock I encounter. Who I am not: your average neighborhood tech geek, a rep from a fly-by-night shop, or someone sending proposals to any listing that appears. I choose my applications very carefully, and make sure I have budgeted enough time to complete the task required. I also do not apply for jobs that I'm not 100% certain I can handle. Due to these and many other reasons, I have built a solid name for myself locally, and will do so here as well. You'll be glad you chose to have done business with me, and I look forward to meeting your technological challenges head-on.

    Programmer, system administrator and designer

    Spain - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7

    - Quick Bio I was very interested in computers since I was a kid, I started my contact with them using a very old 386 IBM PC running MSDOS. When I was 12 years old I realized computers were not meant only for gaming, so I learned to program in Visual Basic and Borland C, since then, I keep on learning new programming languages one at a time and studying other fields like system administration, network protocols, graphic design, music production and web development. To resume my impressions after many years coding, I can say about me that I fall in love easily with any new challenge and keep working on it until becomes no more a challenge. - Education I finished elementary and secondary school and found no interest on starting University, so I went for the choice of educating myself using books, manuals, papers and practice. This way has given me many success and also many rejections by former potential employers. As I consider myself a honest person, I will not try to impress you with a list of educational centers and dates, but I’m glad to provide you a list of my skills in several fields. - Professional Experience I was working in many different jobs (from construction to commercial) since I’m 17 years old, and started to work professionally with computers at the age of 21. My first job was in a marketing and advertising agency as a graphic designer and web developer. After 1 year working there, I moved to a pure web development company and my main task was to recode a very old CMS system. After almost two years, I moved to Germany and I was hired by a company that works very close to the Swiss tourism web marketing team. My main task here consisted in administering more than 50 virtual machines in amazon ec2 cloud, aside with hundred of web services. Eventually I did backend and frontend development and migrations of ~2GB of relational data to a MongoDB replica set. - Objective I’ve just started my career as a freelance, currently looking for customers that are not afraid of taking technology risks but understand what controlled evolution is, that do not live in a fantasy bubble where technology progress does not exists and are always willing for a better system or product. Those who give me enough freedom to innovate, but surround me with domain knowledge in order to create together nothing less than tailor-made solutions. If you are this kind of customer, we are already in the same wave, and I will be glad to get immediately in contact with you for pushing that project as far as it deserves. -

    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.

    Versatile Full Stack Web Developer

    France - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 13

    I am a "versatile" full stack web developer. I can perform those tasks (in order of proficiency): - web development and integration (phpMysql, html5/css3, ajax) - network, system and web server administration (git/ssh, apache2, nGinx) - domain names and web hosting management - psd to htm conversion - computer music, photography My methods of code deployment, backup and maintenance are fast and safe since I will have a git repo of your project on bitbucket, locally on my machine and preferably on a compute cloud service (AWS, Digital Ocean, terminal.com) on which i can use git over ssh to deploy changes instantaneously without using the "empirical" FTP protocol. My speed inet connection is 5mbs. ps: sorry I am not interested in working with social network API.
