    Mobile Apps -- Web Development

    United States - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 13

    I have a BA (with honors) from the University of Iowa (also double majored in Linguistics). I also have a Web Development Professional Certificate from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. I have been developing apps for the iOS platform since 2009. I have also worked on native Android apps, and I have worked on and created several cross-platform hybrid apps using Apache Cordova (or Phonegap) as well as custom hybrid solutions. I am resourceful and self-motivated when finding applicable solutions to programming problems (it's like a fun puzzle...). In the past I always focused on Apple platforms and was an expert on the now antiquated Macintosh Toolbox of the 1990's. I used C/C++ on these old generation Macs and on UNIX boxes while studying computer science (we also used early Java on the workstations). I still have a sweet spot for native objective-c development on iOS. Recent projects have included custom Cordova / Phonegap plugins, applications which make use of bluetooth iBeacons (as well as Gimbal BLE beacons), and in the last year I have worked extensively with Location Services including GPS functionality and Geofences. In the early days of iOS development I worked a lot with audio processing and muti-touch interactions. I never really set out with the intent to become a project manager, but I communicate well and it seems my role in many gigs recently tends to creep in that direction.

    Experienced researcher, writer and telecoms analyst

    United Kingdom - Last active: 24 days ago - Tests: 3

    As someone who has worked as a freelance researcher, writer and analyst for nearly 13 years, I can offer skill, professionalism and expertise across a range of topic areas and project types. My clients have comprised leading UK consultancy and research businesses in the areas of telecoms, IT, green technology and media analysis. Projects undertaken have ranged from short articles to major reports on European environmental regulation, ICT outsourcing and the Latin American mobile market (2014). Other work has included country telecoms market reports and company profiles; desktop and telephone research on strategic or technological topics; analysis of global and regional cloud-computing and M2M markets; maintenance of a specialist database on telecoms BSS/OSS contracts; industry analyses and market forecasts; and detailed analytical reports on the media performance of major corporations across a range of industry sectors. Most of my work as a professional researcher, writer and analyst has been focused on the global telecoms industry, with particular expertise on European and Latin American markets (especially broadband infrastructure roll-outs and product marketing, and mobile networks and services), and telecoms and networked IT (especially the BSS/OSS sector and cloud computing). A particular success factor in my work as a telecoms-industry researcher and analyst has been my language skills: a native English speaker, I also speak and write fluent French and German, and professional-standard Italian and Portuguese, along with having a working knowledge of related languages such as Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish. These language skills have often enabled me to more rapidly locate superior contacts for business research projects and access more detailed information than would be available to monolingual researchers. I have also undertaken specialised translation work on a number of occasions. Prior to working as a freelance researcher and writer, I was a Senior Analyst at the UK-based research firm Analysys Research (now Analysys Mason Ltd). At that company, I acquired significant project-management and team-leadership experience, as I managed a number of successful online-publishing projects, moving on to managing and developing the company's whole online-publishing operation. Responsibilities included co-ordination and functional development of the online-publishing system, and playing a major role in a re-launch of the company's online-publishing platform and portal. Other professional experience and skills include: - Academic research, including study in Cambridge and Paris towards a PhD in French - Teaching, including French language and literature at Cambridge University, and teaching English as a foreign language - Sales, marketing and administration across a number of roles, including in my capacity as project manager at Analysys, responsible for the profit and loss of publishing products, and also: work for a small importer of nursery furniture; work for a brewing company and distributor to the licensed trade; and temporary assignments for different companies - Numeracy and ability to analyse complex data sets, including analysis of detailed market data, company accounts and specialist databases tracking the media performance of major corporations. My career objective in the present is to expand the number and type of clients for whom I work on a freelance basis, as well as to utilise the full range of my skills, including languages and project management alongside expert research, writing and analysis. I am keen to develop good relationships with regular clients for whom I can play a significant part in adding value to their business. I am hard-working, conscientious and professional, and highly experienced at taking on and delivering demanding freelance projects within deadline and budget. Looking forward to working with you.

    Web Developer

    Germany - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    Hey there! I'm a freelance web developer based in Germany. Over the last several years I've been building websites using PHP, Ruby, Rails, jQuery, Javascript, Bootstrap, CSS3, HTML5 and more. I have experience in working with such PHP frameworks as CodeIgniter and Laravel. I also enjoy scripting and automating tasks with the help of Ruby or Python. So I would be more than glad to help you scrape a few thousand web pages in order to get the data you're looking for. I'm currently a student at a German university, so I have to deal with both German and English on a day-to-day basis. Moreover I'm a native Russian speaker. So feel free to contact me in case you are looking for a really human translation of anything involving any of these three languages.

    Voice recognition IVR design/testing-English/German/Greek/French

    United Kingdom - Last active: 07/11/2012 - Tests: 20 - Portfolio: 4

    EXPERIENCE: --- I have spent the past two decades between the UK and Germany capturing technical and business requirements and composing the related documentation as a Project Manager, Technical Consultant, Voice User Interface Designer, QA Tester, and nowadays Director of and Principal Consultant at my own UI design, testing and optimisation company, DialogCONNECTION Ltd., which specialises in voice recognition applications and language technologies. I have already provided my services to clients such as: Apple, Raytheon BBN Technologies, and the Gerson Lehrman Group in the US; Barclays, CapGemini, Littlewoods, and the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK; Vodafone, Siemens, Sony, Grundig and Loewe in Germany; Swisscom in Switzerland; and Omilia in Greece. In addition, I have been working on technical, scientific, and business communication (written and spoken) for the past 25 years. With several degrees in languages, Linguistics, and IT [BA in English & American Literature & Linguistics, MSc in Machine Translation, PhD in Automatic Text Summarisation, Post-Doc in Dialogue Processing for Automatic Speech Recognition], I have gained considerable experience conceptualising, authoring, editing and publishing peer-reviewed articles for international publications, as well as technical reports for international business clients. LOOKING FOR ROLES: --- I am looking mainly for roles conceptualising, designing, documenting, testing (functionality and usability), and tuning / optimising speech recognition / voice recognition applications for voice self-service and Call Centres / customer hotlines. --- Equally attractive to me would be Functionality Testing roles, as I have had more than a decade of experience in functionality testing, user acceptance testing, usability testing, load testing, live testing, reporting and debugging. --- In addition, any opportunities to put my rigorous, technology-conscious and yet creative and intuitive English, German and Greek language skills into use would also be welcome. IT Project Management, Technical Pre-Sales, and Technical writing roles are of particular interest to me, as I am an expert in translating high-level business, marketing, technical, and user requirements into concrete business process flows, technical process flows, example use cases, dialogue scripts, and test scenarios. This is why I have always been the perfect bridge between Sales & Marketing teams and IT development & programming teams.
