    Rails Dev With Diverse Skill Set

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    Hey, what's up? Thank you for reviewing my profile, I'm glad you stopped by! My name is Dave and here's the skill set I can bring to your project or team: Ruby on Rails Development - Experience with Heroku, Postgres, Devise, Pundit, Paperclip, Geocoder, etc. Front End Development - Bootstrap, Sass, Less, and a little bit of AngularJS Graphic Development and Retouching - 11+ years of Photoshop experience with an extensive focus on photo retouching, complex compositing, and stylized post production. Other Cool Stuff - Audio engineering, video editing / post production, marketing, and I'm a damn fine party planner! But wait, there's more! I also speak fluent English, am on EST time, and according to the Dali Llama, on my death bed I'll achieve total consciousness, so I got that going for me. On a serious note, I am looking primarily for ongoing rails positions that will challenge me and expand my knowledge. I also know that being able to fill some gaps when needed can be a huge benefit. I am happy to jump in and be of help in a range of areas outside of web development if needed, such as marketing and content creation. Finally, and as I would expect from anyone in web development in this day and age, I am very familiar with Wordpress and able to assist with just about anything a project could require. I would love to chat with you more about your thing / project / hopes and dreams / and the like... So please hit me up with a message and let's do lunch. Thanks again and talk soon!

    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.

    Alexandru Marinescu Agency Contractor

    Freelance web developer / programmer with sysadmin experience

    Romania - Last active: 12/12/2014 - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 3

    I enjoy programming, building websites and fixing stuff. In the past 4 years I have worked with PHP/Codeigniter, MySQL, WordPress and Prestashop. Recently I started to learn Ruby/Rails building an awesome web app so I'd like to work more on some beginner-level Ruby/Rails/Sinatra projects to improve my skills. Also, I had to learn Linux by myself to deploy two apps in production. I can install basic services, do monitoring, improve default security. I'm interested in jobs that require programming skills - I know how to work with Photoshop for basic image manipulation but I don't have design talent.
