    Mahmoud Al-Qudsi

    Senior Software Architect

    United States

    I'm a senior software architect (with a degree in computer engineering) with 10 years of commercial software design and development experience and over 20 years of experience troubleshooting and administering Windows, Linux, Mac, and FreeBSD machines. I have designed and developed dozens of successful small and medium commercial applications, consulted for startups that went on to get multi-million dollar acquisitions, led teams of more than a dozen individuals at a software development firm, founded my own software development company, designed custom operating system distributions, programmed microcontrollers and designed hardware for gizmos and gadgets, administered servers, designed databases, and much more. My experience in software development covers C, C++, C#, and PHP on Windows, Linux, Mac, and FreeBSD. I've developed entire backends for cloud applications, eCommerce platforms, desktop utilities and applications, firmware for embedded devices I've designed and developed myself, and more. I've administered Windows, FreeBSD, and Linux servers, and use Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac on a daily basis. I always have at least 4 or 5 virtual machines running at a time, and am very well-versed in both administering and developing for the cloud, mainly AWS (currently using EC2, S3, CloudFront, Route53) plus Azure. I've worked on ultra-high-performance libraries and pride myself in designing and developing fast, succinct, and highly-reliable code. I'm constantly approached to consult with regards to the best strategies to adopt when approaching an idea for a startup or application, and provide valuable feedback on perceived difficulties and vantages. I love to learn and challenge myself constantly to do so, love both technical and regular writing, and am always trying something new. I'm a native English speaker and express myself fluently. I take great pride in my work, and am an extreme perfectionist by nature. I regularly contribute to open source projects, and have a real passion for everything to do with computers and especially with software development. I'm on oDesk to find something new to challenge myself with and experience a wider range of technical challenges and to push myself to the limits.

  2. Paulo Amaral

    Paulo Amaral Agency Contractor

    Result-driven branding consultant, copywriter, and sales coach

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello! For 14 years I have been growing companies through effective and out-of-the-box marketing strategies. At first it was my own companies. Then friends sought me for advice and I'd get endless invitations to become their partners in existing and upcoming businesses. Before I knew, I had become a marketing consultant and was spending my days helping clients grow their businesses. I could talk about the IT company that I rebranded as technology consultants, and as results, their contracts increased 4 times in price. I could also talk about the tables and chairs company that, without spending a single dollar in advertising, got on the first page of Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, sold to government agencies, including the U.S. Navy, famous universities, and Fortune 500 companies. And I could tell you about other clients' success stories. But I'd prefer to talk about you and how to make yours a success story. --- / --- \ --- Services Description: CLIENT ACQUISITION AND RETENTION We help companies get new clients and keep the current ones. Most marketing agencies and professionals focus solely on helping their customers get new clients. They ignore that it is easier and more profitable to keep current clients satisfied than it is to get new clients. UNCOVERING YOUR REAL NEEDS We start by understanding the real needs and goals of clients and helping them getting there. The main challenge with marketing today is that there are too many choices available; it can be daunting deciding what the best strategy for your firm is. For example, people often think that they need one specific solution, say a beautiful new website. But that might not be what they really need. Chances are your site is fine, and instead of a total makeover you simply need a remodeling. Instead of simply selling you a website, we'd prefer to talk to you and understand your real goals and then create and implement a strategy to get you there. We work with firms of different sizes and budgets. We create beautiful and functional websites that clearly describe what you do, how you will defend/support your clients, and how they can contact you. Then we can get you on top of Google (but it takes time), and bring leads to your site (immediately) through online advertising (pay-per click or display ads). Also, we can increase your reputation online and help you communicate with prospective clients even before they need your services through effective social media marketing. And when you get prospects knocking on your door or calling you, we will teach you how to turn them into paying clients who will tell Here's a list of services that we provide: Branding Marketing Consulting Web Design and Development Sales Coaching Mobile Application Testing, UI/UX Website Conversion Optimization Marketing Planning Copywriting Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Graphic Design Video Production Printing Pay-Per-Click Advertisement campaign creation and management Social Media Management Web Hosting and Security Marketing Audits Branding

I hold work experience in marketing, writing/journalism, accounting, video production, graphics/web design, office administration, and business management. **MARKETING CONSULTANT** I founded Initiated Marketing as an online marketing, public relations, and image consulting firm that has been outsourced by corporate marketing departments and publicists worldwide. Also the winner of the 2012 Business Excellence Award for Most Innovative Company in Marketing and Advertising. I changed fields to public relations and political strategy.

Over the years have had the privilege to work with companies and political organizations like Kidzui and the Tea Party Express. While working here I've also written several articles and press releases with Rolling Stone Brazil, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Yisrael Today News and others. This includes interviews with several celebrities such as the stars of A&E reality TV show 'Flip This House', Julian Lennon, Mark Ballas, and more. "Yeshiyah achieved great results with a slim budget for a non-profit organization client of mine. He proved to be very pro-active and thought out of the box, coming up with creative solutions to their PR needs. The result was international media coverage of their recently released CD album with big-name artists working together to raise funds for the charity. I would highly recommend Yeshiyah and his team to others seeking PR work." -Dylan Robertson **CLERK & OFFICE ASSISTANT** I've worked in office environments on a number of jobs and for a variety of purposes before. - In Israel, I worked as a financial clerk for the Tel Arad National Park and held duties including collecting daily entrance fees, keeping financial records, filling out accounting records with the Manager. - I worked for Da'Real Distributions in Beth-Shemesh where my job included communicating with clients oversea & record companies in Israel.

I'm dedicated to creating high quality video productions for interesting clients and "turning their dreams into reality". And in 2002, I and Watchmen Productions (which is in association with Amariel Family Entertainment) put together a film entitled "Search for Zion". It was aired in July of 2003 in the Midwest on Can TV Chicago. By 2007, my skills advanced to blend live action with 3D animated video editing for a non profit organization in Florida. For my works in visual productions over the years I have professional recommendations (can provide them on request) from other graphic artists including "Michael Netzer", formerly of Marvel Comics and DC comics. **WEB DESIGN ** I've been web design for 9 years with the Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer organization and other less consistent clients.

    Business Coach

    United States - Portfolio: 10

    My name is Rey Tamayo and I am a borne entrepreneur and business coach. I have been in business most of my life and have had three successful exits from businesses and startups. I started my first premium shoe shine business at age 5 and have dabbled in business most of my life.
