    WebGL developer and Software Engineer with VR experience

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 4

    My recent work (read: the past 3+ years) has been entirely based in webGL - mostly with 3D models and environments, but also some particle effects. I can work in a number of languages however - and am most familiar with C, C++, GLSL, Java, Python, PHP and Javascript. As a web designer I'm familiar with WebGL implementations, e-commerce, and mySQL database work. I was most recently employed by a virtual reality lab before cuts in funding terminated my position. While there I worked with an accelerometer-based glove apparatus, learned about VR theory and methods of application, worked with a unity-like engine, and modeled in 3DStudioMax and Maya. I was also involved the various upkeep and troubleshooting needs of a VR-capable network of nodes and projectors.

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 24 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!
