    Senior Project Manager/Product Developer

    United States - Last active: 23 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 10

    I have a comprehensive background in product development/project management within the confines of international medical device regulations. I thrive on taking vague ideas and ill-defined needs and turning them into concrete reality. I can start a medical device company from the ground up and I can do it on schedule. This includes... From a Regulatory perspective: --Initial regulatory requirements analysis for new markets (EU, Brazil, Australia, US, Canada, etc.) --Identification of applicable test protocols (ISO standards, etc.) and management of test houses --Interfacing with regulatory agencies and identifying consultants --Writing of regulatory submissions such as FDA 510(k)s --Quality System development and implementation to required standards (ISO 13485, FDA, CMDCAS, etc.) --Identification of loop holes and temporary workarounds to ease implementation pains and maintain profitability From a Project perspective: --Using good interpersonal skills to keep people motivated and excited --"Conducting the orchestra", developing a logical rhythm of events and ensuring timely completion of tasks --Turning "unknown unknowns" into "known unknowns", forseeing problems before they arise and altering the "orchestra" accordingly --Coordination of teams on an international level --Intelligently focusing energy on tasks with the highest variability, including procurement of additional expertise as necessary --Always keeping an open dialog about the day-to-day changes in the "Good/Fast/Cheap, pick any two but only two of the three" trade-offs in milestone achievement From a Product perspective: --Development of design parameters from organization input (Sales, Marketing, Support, etc.) --Nitty-gritty technical work like engineering drawings/drafting, statistical analysis, resdesigns due to manufacturing constraints, component supplier identification. --Identification, qualification, and day-to-day management of international manufacturers --Design History File/Technical File development and maintenance --Design Transfer for complex electromechanical devices From an Operations perspective: --Part Number/Drawing Number/Revision Control development and implementation --Engineering Change Order workflow and impacts --Purchasing-Manufacturing-Sales-Shipment procedures and throughput --ERP/MRP implementation including workarounds for system limitations I am a strong believer in a person's word. If I tell you I'm going to do something by a certain date that is my word and I'm going to get it done, hell or high-water. I don't mess around: I live on a remote homestead so I grow my own food, build my own structures, fix my own car, brew my own beer. My entire life requires a high level of precision execution every single day, failure is not an option.

    Consultant

    United States - Last active: 04/28/2014 - Tests: 10

    I value intellectual honesty, equanimity and dispassionate discourse, diversity of perspective, creative collaboration, scientific inquiry, and a healthy, nuanced sense of humor. I value people, not organizations. I draw a lot of diagrams and carry a notebook and whiteboard wherever I go. Given a pot of coffee, or a few pints, and a lot of markers, I'll talk shop for hours. I recently took up juggling just so I can think faster. Incidentally, it's also fun. Some wordier information follows. Since entering networking in 2004, I've had the good fortune of being given unfettered access to a smorgasbord of technologies from numerous vendors in a wide variety of implementations. The gestalt of this practical experience is enhanced pattern recognition, which has proven invaluable when encountering new technologies and unfamiliar systems. I've also developed a fairly unhealthy relationship with the Internet, and for all her vexing inconsistencies and mind-boggling architectural flaws, I always run right back. BGP had me at "Open." I strive always to distill recursive complexity from seemingly inextricable intricacy, reducing special cases to degenerate ones (though, in the wild, an 80% solution is often quite good). I prefer primary research and the considered development of new processes and best practices to the repetitive application of existing ones, and this drives me to automate the tedious bits wherever possible. I'm always in search of new and interesting problems--and new methods with which to solve them. To that end, I spend a great deal of time writing code and studying mathematics, all the while finding new applications to ground the theory. If I stumble upon a particularly recalcitrant problem, I teach everyone I see about it until some vital insight reveals itself or I find someone to instead teach me.

    Consultant, PM, Solution Arch, Sys/Net Engr, Developer, Designer

    Philippines - Last active: 09/27/2014 - Tests: 22 - Portfolio: 5

    I want to help organizations and individuals realize their vision by helping them build their systems and applications. I'm a senior developer, systems/network engineer, solutions architect, and project manager with over 17 years experience in the information and communication technology industry. I've held top management & technology leadership positions in several startup ventures in the field of operating systems & virtualization, mobile technologies, systems integration, and business applications. Two have been acquired at an early stage. I've recently worked as CEO for an offshore development & design outsourcing firm from Israel focused on web & mobile technologies and as CTO for a startup social gaming firm from Canada where I work hands-on with technology while mentoring small but growing teams. I've also led larger technology groups with over a hundred people sometimes from distributed locations. I've developed custom systems directly used by customers & end users. I've also developed systems as a subcontractor and publisher. My most recent projects include an emergency app on the Nokia Store, a geo-social app & a geo/social game on the Android Market, a JavaME app for a celebrity gossip magazine, a mobile/web ordering & delivery tracking system, and a web/mobile rock paper scissors tournament game. I've started my IT inclination as a computer enthusiast way back in college where I took on computer assembly and repair jobs as well as data encoding and desktop publishing to finance my education. Eventually, I learned programming in Turbo Pascal, Turbo C, DBase III+, and Foxpro/Clipper and took on small projects building software applications and database applications such as POS, inventory, and rental systems. Over the years, I kept myself updated with the changing trends and technologies, familiarize myself with new tools, methodologies & practices, and seek opportunities to utilize what I've learned commercially. I've setup systems for small businesses, small ISPs, and more recently small call centers during my spare time. All while playing a key role in the projects or companies I worked for.
