Carlos Gilberto Martínez Martínez

Enthusiastic Java Senior Developer

Colombia - Tests: 6

My experience focuses on developing mobile, web and desktop Java applications which gives me a wide range of Java platforms experience: I worked for 19 months in big desktop and web Java projects for 'Media Interactive', an international development company located in Kiel, Germany. I was in charge of designing and coding software modules oriented to the airline industry. During this period I became a Senior Developer and Team Leader. For Media Interactive, I developed software by using the Swing framework for JSE, and the Tapestry framework for JEE. Structs and Hibernate were used for data persistence and communication with ORACLE databases in those projects. I have experience in written and audio-visual communications with developers, QA members and project managers using English as a common language. Through the 'Jira' platform and Skype I could participate in a collaborative development environment. I have used XML a lot by using Tapestry and also when writing android apps, which is one of my favorite platforms for my free time by the way. I have developed for JME and BlackBerry in my free time as well. I have a little experience in JavaFX, PHP, and the old starter C++. Off course I remember those charming days when I used MySQL. I'm looking forward to learn a lot by participating in challenging cross-platform projects, improve my developing, leading and human interaction skills while getting to know exciting and experienced software-related teams.

Ann K.

Ann K.

Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

Sweden - 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!

Rodrigo Mansueli Nunes

Rodrigo Mansueli Nunes


Brazil - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 7

I am a senior Computer Engineering Student at the Federal Technological University of Paraná with a conjoint degree at University of Alberta (2014/2015). This conjoint degree was scholarship and the Brazilian Federal Government awarded it due to mine academic record. I also lived in Denmark in 2008 as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program where I learned Danish well enough to understand even Norwegian. I have used this website during this time as a complimentary mean of supporting myself through these university experiences. Over the past few years, I worked on Upwork (started when it was still oDesk) in many and different positions mostly as a consultant. My primary work types were to translate; to proofread and to research issues related to Brazil or that involved my language somehow i.e proofreading software localization. I did also work as a graphic designer although the designer jobs were a minor part of my experience here. I am able to work within the following language pairs: From/To English/ Portuguese Danish/Portuguese Spanish/Portuguese Portuguese/English I am a tech savvy, as you one would imagine based on my degree. This nature makes me a very flexible freelancer to work with and around technologies and pick up quickly almost anything IT related. Any kind of media or service is fine for me.
