    Business Finance Consultant

    United States - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

    My unique approach to financial management is designed to reveal both insights and opportunities. Building upon a background of National Account Management, Commercial Banking, Brokerage Services, and Senior-Level Financial Consulting, I draw upon a wealth of practical, first-hand experience to benefit clients in the ways that matter most: A broad-based understanding of business finance that achieves defined, sustainable goals. A common theme linking disparate industries at different stages of development and maturity comes courtesy of an understanding of the flow of every dollar, from sales to expense to operating income. Examined through a lens that is customized for every client and each business, and reflects their unique challenges and competitive advantages. The result is what I call Functional Financial Management. It’s not merely the numbers, but the story inside the numbers. Customized, relevant, and with a practical utility that can be nothing short of game-changing. These are also the hallmarks of financial management guidance provided through Business Expedition Partners, the financial consulting firm I founded to offer clients around the world specialized financial consulting. From start-ups to mature companies, it is an honest, hard-working, unrelenting attention to detail that delivers results exceeding expectations. Top 5% Odesk Contractor!

    Java Senior Developer

    Argentina - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 4

    I like to develop powerful and scalable java applications using the cloud technologies. I really enjoy the agile approaches when I'm developing. Right now I'm working for a client in the US which have most of his team distributed in South America, as a Senior Developer assigned to one of his GWT applications. About three years ago I started being part of a new team (now distributed) for a client in the United States, and we used Google App Engine and Google Web Toolkit as our primaries frameworks with GIT as a SCM. The product has became very big with 14.000.000 of users accounts. Being part of that I learned a lot about how to develop high scalable applications with thousand of users. I also have worked with the Spring Framework and with Grails in the past. In the freetime, I try to learn new things like AngularJS, do swimming and play soccer.

    PHP Web Application Developer: Focused on Zend Framework and APIs

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4

    I've been in the web development field since 2002, when I started as a programmer/admin for a web hosting company. I've worked on a variety of web applications (generally php/MySQL based) ranging from ecommerce to in-house CMS to data mining/feed processing to integrating APIs and web services. I've worked with a number of PHP frameworks (Zend, CodeIgniter, CakePHP), and generally like working with a MVC design pattern. I've developed web applications from the ground up, as well as modified and added functionality to existing custom in-house systems, opensource applications, and commercial applications. I've worked with various APIs, including: Twilio, Twitter, Foursquare, Amazon, PayPal, Drop.io, Sunlight Labs, EmailYak, and others. I've written wrappers for APIs, as well as written APIs for outside integration into applications I've written. I am comfortable working with other developers and designers. In addition I've been asked to do code review and troubleshooting for projects where I had no active role. My profile on StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/users/45531/tim-lytle) is a good sample of my ability to communicate the details of a development problem/solution. I'm also a Zend Certified Engineer (http://www.zend.com/store/education/certification/yellow-pages.php#show-ClientCandidateID=ZEND011439) with experience administering apache/mysql/php/etc on Linux (and a bit on Windows). Most of my oDesk clients are buyers who need high-level, conceptual requests to be understood and implemented, and the projects are ongoing long-term relationships.
