    I have worked as a PHP developer for about 7 years for now. My experience in working on a wide range of projects allowed me to work with large corporations like Adidas, Reebook and Unilever - that kind of clients are very demanding and expect performance to the highest level. Thanks to that cooperation I know how necessary thing is good communication. I worked in a team of developers as well as on my own, additionally, I have experience as a team leader. Worked on small projects and some bigger ones that took over a year to complete. I am very much familiar with the latest technologies such as: PHP 5x (OOP), MySQL 5x/Postgresql 8+ (usually with ORM if needed), MVC Frameworks, jQuery, Mootools, DHTML, CSS3, HTML5, Youtube/Facebook/Twitter API to integrate projects with social media.

    Senior PHP/Javascript/SQL Developer

    Australia - Last active: 14 hours ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    Over the last 12 years I've worked with PHP, MySQL/PostgreSQL/MSSQL, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and related web technologies to create a large number of websites and web applications. I've worked for a number of startups and for a large listed company. My strength is the knowledge I have of what the web application stack is capable of, how interacts with the underlying server software/hardware and browser. This insight allows me to build robust, sophisticated and fast software. Most recently I have been building thick client side applications using Backbone.js and Require.js. I believe that the future of consumer software is going to be dominated by this type of software stack. It gives me great pleasure to be building the future right now. I also have excellent Ubuntu/Debian/CentOS Linux administration skills and have managed a large number of different servers. If you're after a serious and capable programmer then look no further.
