    CTO for hire or Lead Ruby on Rails engineer

    United States - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    Quality matters. Communication matters. I'm an expert in both. Over the past 5 years, I've built web applications of exceptional quality using Ruby-on-Rails, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL and other cutting edge web technologies. I've done "rescue missions" where I've been brought in to fix and upgrade badly written applications. I also have great experience with so-called "green-field" applications -- creating a new application from scratch in collaboration with the stakeholders, other developers and/or business development interests. I'm a senior level engineer. I'm also an experienced lead. I've managed teams of 3-15 developers, including distributed teams across multiple time zones. I'm not an inexpensive developer in terms of hourly rate, but I am very cheap when it comes to value. I've managed the development team for million dollar enterprise projects and I've helped young startups make it to their Series A. If you want CTO-level expertise for your next project, we should talk -- sooner rather than later! Let me help you create something that is sustainable, maintainable and scalable. Some of my clients have included, iCouch, Take the Interview, the Tribeca Film Festival, Paperless Post and many others from larger organizations to small startups. Anything from API development to full-stack web engineering and deployment, I can help. I'm a US citizen with superlative communications skills along with deep experience in web and mobile application best practices. You won't waste time with cultural or linguistic barriers; just think of me as your engineering expert next door. I can work however you want, but my typical workflow uses Trello to organize the project, Github to manage the code and Heroku for extremely fast deployments. For longer duration projects, I'll generally use a Continuous Integration workflow using tools such as Semaphore, Codeship or Travis CI. I measure code quality using various tools, including CodeClimate. It doesn't matter how big or some your project may be, quality is paramount. Following best practices is critical; after all, we want to ensure that future developers won't inherit a mess. I generally use Test Driven Development, although there can be some exceptions depending on the project and the level of my involvement as well as any previous tests (or lack of.) I come from an Extreme Programing (XP) background and generally follow Agile pioneer Ron Jeffries's development philosophies. However, I'm not dogmatic. Every project is different. I'll make some suggestions, but ultimately you, the client make the rules. Of course, if you need help or guidance, I'm happy to help. Most of you will want to hire me to do actual coding and development work. That's the majority of what I do, however, I'm also available as an agile consultant as well. Perhaps you have an existing team that needs some improvement -- I can come in and help. First, I observe and learn about your process (and the personalities,) then I create a recommendation for improvements, including implementation, training or whatever else is needed to get your team on the right track. What every you might need for your next project, I'm here to help. Let's build something together!

    Linux sysadmin, cloud deployments specialist

    Czech Republic - Last active: 14 hours ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    I would like to offer you my deep knowledge of server hardware and software, which allows me to fine-tune servers according to their roles, and my ability to anticipate and solve problems in shortest time possible. Unix only, Linux preferred. I am a developer of cloud monitoring & management tool M-Script ( http://m-script.org ), a simpler and easier to learn tool compared to alternatives, yet powerful and allowing faster cloud-based deployments including cross-cloud deployments, private clouds support, images management, cloud scripting of maintenance routines and any complex cloud automation (auto-scalability or any event/action programming). No matter how complex (or simple) your setup is, it can save you a lot of time and money and provide a seamless transition from initial proof-of-concept setup to full production infrastructure.

    Back-end and front-end dev and photographer

    Ukraine - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I specialize on Ruby on Rails and front-end development. In spite of the fact I have got a degree in International Journalism and Translation, I worked as QA and IT Sales for total of 3 years (from 2008) and then moved to web development from Jan, 2012. I have performed both back-end tasks (from basic CRUD to making simple APIs or server scripts) and front-end (building static websites from scratch or developing views with twitter-bootstrap). I believe the experience is formed with the quality of the projects, you have delivered, and not with the years of sitting in front of the laptop. Specialties: ruby 1.9.2+, Ruby on Rails 3.0+, linux and MacOS X environment, unix-shell, Git, SQL (SQLite, MySQL, PostrgeSQL), HTML, Haml, CSS, Sass, Less, twitter-bootstrap, javascript, jQuery Here is link to my github profile: https://github.com/amseledka I do photographs and various design tasks in my spare time, as well as help my friends with Russian-Ukrainian-English translations.

    Web developer

    Russia - Last active: 14 hours ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 12

    Lately my work is about integrating Bitcoin-related functionality in websites or developing special purpose apps, like a bitcoin trading bot or a websocket chat. It involved various technologies: node.js, websockets, Ruby, Sinatra framework, Blockchain.info API, PayPal API. During the years of my work prior to this I've performed a big variety of tasks in developing and reworking websites. This involved a lot of programming with PHP+MySQL, layout works with HTML+CSS, Javascript (with and without jQuery), AJAX. I had experience working with various CMSs: OpenCart, Joomla!, Wordpress, MODx Revolution, DataLife Engine, SimplaCMS, self-written websites. Also with different frameworks: MODx, Yii, also self-written MVC structures. I also use regular expressions (RegExp) fluently and have quite some experience with that. I've integrated a number of payment systems in several websites, which included PayPal, Bitcoin (native and via Blockchain.info API) and russian WebMoney, Yandex.Money, QIWI, Robokassa. All payment processors utilize mainly same principles, so it's no problem to learn and integrate something new quickly. My work included creation of web grabbers and parsers that process information from external websites, for example to fill up an online store database. Also setting up and administrating Linux/FreeBSD VPS servers: installation and configuration of Apache, PHP, MySQL, Python and some other uncommon software. Aside from pure web, I've developed Python and Ruby scripts for various services. A part of that was developing Bitcoin-related services, including API communication with bitcoind daemon, automated receiving/sending Bitcoin payments, trading on BTC exchanges via their API, and other stuff. I'm looking for interesting work opportunities that would let me develop my skills and acquire new ones. Cryptocurrencies are especially interesting to me, but if it's not the case, no problem. Most likely I can be useful to solve your programming issues, so feel free to contact me.
