    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.

    Aleh V.

    Software Engineer / Architect / Project Lead / Agile Project Manager

    United States

    Software Engineer with 10+ years of experience. Project Lead / Agile Project Manager with 3+ years of experience. Being originally a back-end developer (hardcore C++ and Java) with strong Computer Science background (BS and MS degrees in Discrete Mathematics), I do not tolerate sloppy or inefficient code. My code is easy to understand and maintain. I do expect a similar approach from the people I work with. Over the last 4 years, I moved into Mobile and Cloud space: Android and Google Cloud Services with most of the technologies sitting nearby or in between (JSON/REST/CRYPTO). The last two years I was a CTO of a Techstars-backed startup. We created a product with a distributed team of engineers. I do know what I do. I like to use git, JIRA and Jenkins but open to all reasonable alternatives. I'm looking for an engineering / architecture work to do. I'm NOT looking for a Project Management role at the moment unless you are willing to pay some crazy money. At the moment, I work as a Senior Systems Software Engineer for Akamai.com. I love my job. My involvement with oDesk is part-time (10-15 hour per week). I do consulting in startup / mobile / cloud areas. I like small to medium projects on the side that involve new and promising technologies and libraries.

    Tiffany V.

    Innovator. Doer. Fixer

    United States - Tests: 4

    As the title says, I'm an innovator, a doer, and a fixer. I absolutely love finding new and creative ways to make a system, a team, or an organization run more efficiently and effectively. I've been doing this for as long as I can remember and really don't think I can help it. In each of my previous positions I've made a measurable difference, including saving hundreds of hours, tens of thousands of dollars, and countless trees (via the reduction of unnecessary paperwork). I've also spent time promoting teamwork, collaboration, consistency, and happiness. I strongly believe in the power of technology. By properly harnessing that power, we can come up with innovative ways to solve all sorts of problems. I love to learn. If I'm not in a formal educational program, chances are I'm reading articles, watching TED talks, or figuring things out hands-on. And I get a kick out of sharing what I've learned with others.

    Alan Short

    President and General Manager

    United States - Tests: 1

    Is your business exactly where you want it to be? You don’t have any any problems to solve or improvements to make? Is your business perfect? Probably not. Even those of us who have taken on the challenge of helping others improve, and sometimes transform, their businesses have problems and work to improve on a daily basis. (Shhhh!, don’t tell anyone, but we make a lot of mistakes too. Good mistakes that still move us forward and even some where we ask ourselves what we were thinking. But the progress is always forward and tomorrow always turns out to be better than yesterday.) So if you want to improve on any or all of the following then we can help you without a shadow of a doubt: • Revenue generation • New sources of revenue • Profit • Costs • Quality • Customer service / satisfaction • Time • Frustration • Employee engagement • Delays • Problem Solving • Control • Processes and systems • Value creation and delivery It is not magic. Everything we do is something you could do all on your own. You could teach yourself and do it. The problem is that you are running a business and probably don’t have the time to learn and even less time to make costly mistakes and missteps. We all need help with things for which we either do not have the time, resources, or talent. If we did we would be perfect. No one is. If you want to generate more revenue (and profits) through better marketing then we can help. If you want improved profits, problems solved permanently, fewer surprises, and happier customers (or patients, clients, patrons, etc.) then we can help. If you want to free up more of your time to do what you do best and enjoy while letting others do the same and still enjoy the increased revenue and profits and reduced problems, then we can help.
