    Analyst, QA-Engineer, Technical Writer, Content Manager, Proofreader

    Russia - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 12

    I am a business/system analyst, QA-engineer, and technical writer skilled in the design of software requirement specifications (SRS), test cases, user manuals, and help systems. My total experience of a remote work at software development teams exceeds 9 years. Also, I have a many-years experience of the content management, including translations, proofreading, editing, and annotating (for reviewed scientific journals) as well as data mining, rewriting, and copyrighting (for public web-projects). In my opinion, my main strengths are my mathematical background (I have a postdoc degree in Math and I use that as a basis for all projects required the data analysis) and my comprehensive expertise in VBA macros for Excel and in editors of the TeX-group (TeX/LateX/AMSTeX).

    As a specialist consultant with a background in major, multinational, data-driven science projects, I draws on skills that have been applied and demonstrated in some of the most demanding data analysis settings imaginable, specifically cutting edge space research. I offer services in the following areas: * Policy and Strategy I help corporate and public sector organizations fomulate policies and strategies to foster the use of data and data analysis to achieve organizational goals. With my public science background I have a keen interest in the policies and strategies needed to ensure open data is an integral part of the way the public sector engages with business and communities. * Data Analysis and Numerical Modelling As a data analyst I am experienced at working with small and "big-data" volumes of data. I undertake novel investigations combining data, simulations and statistical methods (such as Bayesian inference and causal modelling) to create models from which quantifiable decisions can be made. I also create analysis pipelines to routinely turn base data into higher level products, such as visualizations, and make it more useful and accessible to end users. * Software Development With over ten years experience writing software in Perl, Java and C++ to crunch numbers in HPC environments, I have the skills needed to turn analysis and models into deliverable software modules; either as stand alone tools or for integration into client systems. What I do goes beyond mere number crunching. Having written end-to-end processing pipelines I have included stages for manual user interaction and input (such as for quality control purposes) and have written the tools needed to archive results and provide user access through different interfaces.

    Software and Business Professional

    France - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 1

    I am a lover of software development. From humble beginnings developing on DOS to building distributed web applications processing millions of rows of data. But that's not all. I have helped companies of all sizes with the development of their business too. Software is simply a tool to help you achieve a business aim. I always keep this in mind. How will be able to help you? I want to fully understand your problem before starting (for example, With your agreement I record our phone meetings and review them before creating a proposal). Once I fully understand your issues, you'll receive a proposal to give you the quickest solution to create the maximum benefit for you. Then,with small iterative steps, which we both review regularly together, we can progress to a complete solution which meets your business need. So, why not drop me a line and we can have an initial chat to discuss your needs.

    I have been working as an astrophysicist for 8 years with an interest in all things 'data science'. I hold a PhD in Physics, Diploma in Statistics and Bachelors in Theoretical Physics with a skill-set that includes: Data science / analysis / interpretation / visualisation Statistics Mathematical methods Image processing My research projects to date have included the preparation and cleaning of various datasets, performing statistical analyses, automating algorithms and writing scientific papers. I am seeking opportunities to utilise my skills and expertise in various projects that need to be data mined for, e.g., hypothesis testing, model prediction, image/signal processing, or other analytics / visualisation. To this end I have completed Coursera courses in the Johns Hopkins University "Data Science Specialization" and am undertaking the Stanford "Machine Learning" course by Andrew Ng. I am fluent in IDL; have experience with Python, R and Octave/MATLAB; and dabbled in MySQL and some HTML. Otherwise skilled in Linux, Adobe Suites, LaTeX, and Microsoft productivity software (Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc). I'm offering a low initial rate open for negotiation as I build up experience - being new to oDesk. Thanks for reading & I look forward to potentially working with you.

    India - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 1

    I can work on all stages of an analysis life-cycle to implement and interpret various analytical models to make inferences about the business. Further, I can communicate complex ideas lucidly and meaningfully to the business users. Consequently, I can do and help others do data-driven consulting. I mostly use R and OpenRefine for this, however I am familiar with Python and other tools. I have degrees in engineering and business and have various accomplishments in activities like chess, quizzing, and creative writing. My skills and interests are a product of cross-cultural experience and a love of science and art. Reporting, automation, content creation, process definitions, business requirements, tool evaluations, surveys, and business development are some areas I have worked in.
