    Over the last 7 years, I have developed a wide range of websites using HMTL, Ajax , PHP, and MySQL including sites for startup companies and small businesses. I have developed a CRM named Online Management System (OMS) for an insurance company. The main functions of the CRM are capture leads from multi campaigns, make PDF quotation according to different insurance options, track leads' sale progress, a basic report function. I also have developed a platform,both frontend and backend, which is named TAP (The Advocacy Platform). TAP is a gamified marketing platform which delivers research, user generated content, and most importantly transforms consumers into true authentic Brand Advocates. Advocacy campaigns via TAP have delivered key message recall of 40-50% at 1/10th of TV media cost. Fueled by a community of over 125,000 women in the top 20 cities in China, TAP has delivered 5 million brand 'missions' since January 2012 for key clients such as Reckitt Benckiser, P&G, Kimberley Clarke, J&J, GSK, and Fonterra. My core competency lies in complete end-end management of a new website development project, and I am seeking opportunities to build websites from the ground up for you or your business.

    Gabriel Alvarez

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

    Germany - Last active: 07/18/2014 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 4

    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.

    Senior web developer

    United States - Last active: 10/25/2013 - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 5

    Over the last 15 years, I have developed a wide range of websites using HMTL, CSS, PHP, and MySQL including sites for startup companies and small corporations. My core competency lies in complete end-end management of a new website development projects, and I am seeking opportunities to build websites from the ground up for you or your business. I am overly competent in database management and have superior knowledge of internet security from experiences from both ends of the spectrum, I have been a hacker in the past and now use this knowledge to better my penetration testing skills.I have many tools that I use to offer clients that guaranteed the most in depth penetration test of their websites. I charge $125.00 for the test, along with a very in-depth compliance report that will explain all vulnerabilities found to you the client. When you hire me for just programming, not only can you rest assured that you will automatically get a secured script and you will not have to worry about sql, xss and csrf vulnerabilities from any part of the scripts that I write. Security is my main focus when writing a script! I have skills in jquery animation, animations with new technology such as adobe edge currently in prototype stage (which will most likely deprecate flash), I have worked on almost every type of website there is from database driven cms, to static html, from real estate websites to javascript driven penny auctions, I have created gaming websites such as knightcrusaders.com, and I also offer server tuning for those who have dedicated servers and find that their websites are just moving to slow, I can optimize queries, tune mysql and php. Again I do have have over 15 years of experience so if there is something I have not listed feel free to ask and I will let you know if I have the ability to do it! I have taken several of the odesk test in order to ensure the client that I do know what I am talking about, I am in top 20% in a few categories which is by far not an easy accomplishment.

    India - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6

    I prefer coding in Python, but am well versed in several languages including Java, PHP, C. Would love to code backends. Quite nostalgic about simple algorithm challenges (TopCoder anyone?). Apart from these general flair, have some experience in pentesting and reversing. I regard security as the first concern, and believe to protect from evil, you must know the tools of their trade. I don't stop till I provide what the employer wants, for which, I generally prefer an employer who knows what he wants. I look forward to learn and re-innovate in any task.
