Shreshtha Sharma

Shreshtha Sharma Agency Contractor

Zend,CCNA Certified Developer for PHP/JS CMS,Framework Development

India - Tests: 2

I am part of a team of experienced Web-Designers and Software-Developers with long industry experience, I have worked with top IT company & while working their worked on some big projects for their clients (fortune 500 companies) from Strategic Planning, Applications analysis, Systems and Application Development, Systems Administration,Testing Services. And, right now providing services under the banner of Kreios Info Solutions. We as a firm are quite new to oDesk (as our main mode of Business is Quite different from oDesk/vWorker etc. we have a prior good portfolios at other sites (vowrker/rent-a-coder elance etc. and prefer direct clients). And to expand our scope we want to cater our services here too, but more importantly than building our profile and generating Business at the moment we are more interested in forging new and long lasting satisfying relationship, for a long term gain. And use a custom installation of project-pier for managing projects, access of which we give to our clients also, in case they dont have their own software to manage projects. As, for my 'Personal' expertise, I have extensive experience of Building very Complex and feature rich, PHP based Systems in both CMS Development(Drupal,wordpress & Magento only) and Frame-Work Based Core development(Cake/Code Igniter/ Zend etc), along with work on JS(MVC+Library both), Social integration on all major platforms(Facebook, Twitter, OpenID etc), so from the cursory details you have given I could say I "would" be able to handle most of your requirement. Apart from core development I also have experience in Automated Quality Assurance and Analysis on HP Quick Test Professional for manual and automated Testing Cases. But, I have yet to get Hands on Experience on Ruby on Rails. Plus, I am also one of the few "Zend Certified Engineer for PHP 5.3 (***With only 357 developers having it from millions of PHP guys in India in 7 years & few thousand in whole world & top 124 on odesk***) with listed name and credentials on their Yellow Pages in PHP community". Now, in addition to development where I have extensive experience, my real expertise/heart & I am quite adept at using Adobe C5 Creative Suite(Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, InDesign, Soundbooth, and Audition) etc. again in "INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY". On the front of live chat, I could be available on Skype and Gtalk for chat/voice call(English Only) on a time of your choice if need be. So, to summarize if you want expert service in above domains from a guy who could turn into a one-stop shop for all your future needs in terms of inception of the project to end execution, then I am your guy, but if you are looking for some generic work, then I might not be a suitable candidate for your needs. As, my main goal here is to represent my firm and the kind of performance we deliver, and convert this "Individual Job" with me, into a "Long Term Satisfying Relationship" with my firm. P.S.: Another added benefit would be in my case, me being part of a team(as each member of my team are either equally or better qualified than me so in case the working relationship turn out to be mutually amicable then being part of a team I/we could cater to a much wider array of requirements in more apt terms without compromising on the quality of deliverables as compared to an individual coder), in case the Need Arise in Future with the expansion of your projects, to much broader avenues, as we would be able to cater individual team experts for those required technologies too, and handy replacement in case of my absence. Keypoints of my profile: -- my 1000+hrs(above average priced hours) on oDesk on related jobs, -- me being part of elite groups of oDesk: Zend group, Bluehost and Application Developer Alliance. -- Plus my perfect ratings(despite long stint on oDesk), -- and fact that majority of my contracts have been long terms. -- Zend Certification and experience in coding -- but above all 'oDesk' gives money-back gurantee on my contracts, which oDesk, itself bears, a facility oDesk gives to only its select top developers
