Gabriel Alvarez

Expert in PHP, JQuery, AJAX. Pentester in my free time

Germany - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 5

I came from the field of particle physics, where at some point I realized I like much more to program than the physics itself. Indeed, as a physicist, I always loved the challenges, always trying to find the best and fastest solution for every problem. For more than 10 years I have programmed in plenty of languages (PHP,C++,Java,etc..), collaborating in some projects with hundreds of thousands of code lines, and starting from scratch several other projects which ended up having several thousands lines of code. Why should you hire me? If you are looking for a programmer that will give you the best and the fastest solution possible, then you are looking at the right profile. Why my solution will be better than others??, you may ask... Well, as I already said, I love the challenges, they are my hobby and my life, so don't doubt for a second that I will put my soul in your problem. At the same time, I expect professionalism and respect from your side. By the way, at the time of charging for my work, I only charge the time I'm actually typing down; I never charge the time I'm researching and thinking about your problem (I usually get most of the best solutions during the sleep ;) In conclusion, if you already hired a team of programmers charging 9$/h and couldn't complete the job (maybe due to lack of interest or preparation), you could always contact me, and once I commit myself to your project, you can be 100% sure that the job will be finished on time. Looking forward to work with you, Gabriel UPDATE: Recently I have been involved in a lot of penetration testing projects (and I had lot of fun doing them!). I will be more than glad to check out the security of your system.

We take on assignments, right-size the solution to the problem, and then use the team approach: an architect to ensure you have a platform suitable to your needs, razor sharp analysts to document the deliverable, creative designers for graphics, and masters of code. We then put very cheap SEO and maintenance folks to ensure your rankings remain at the top, and your site runs blazing fast. Each of these people bill at different rates, so you get maximum bang for your buck. When you hire anyone at Quinji, you hire the team resources. You will not suffer if someone is not available. We have the breadth of skills and depth of resources to ensure your project is on time and on budget. I am native US English speaker and this feedback is given to me by more than 20 different clients which they found a plus point while making conversation when they are outsourcing their work for better communication and understanding. Always available on Skype for voice or text during my working hours. I completed 3000 hours on upwork formerly Odesk with 5 star feedback up to May 2015.
