    Senior Systems Engineer

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 9

    I have been working in IT for over 15 years now, and loved almost every minute of it. While I have experience with everything from Netware to Windows to Aix on the administration side, I primarily specialize in virtualization now, particularly using VMWare (though I have used Hyper-V more than I care to remember). To help back up that systems experience, I also have extensive experience managing storage hardware, particularly EMC and Netapp SANs and Brocade and Cisco MDS fiber channel switches. Combine this with my experience managing network hardware in one of the largest military campus networks in the Middle East, and everything in the datacenter is covered. I started my certifications with Novell and Microsoft, but have also received certifications from Comptia and Cisco at times, along with training from Netapp. Whether you are looking for someone to handle a small server issue or a full infrastructure upgrade and migration, my skills, experience and talents fit the bill. I hold VMware VCP-DCV and Cisco CCNP:DC certifications, among many others

    Leader of Wide Teams

    South Korea - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

    I'm passionate about software craftsmanship and adapting agile practices for distributed teams. I love working with smart people to solve hard problems. My goal for the last few years has been to build a team culture in the model of Hashrocket and PivotalLabs but entirely distributed. For the last 5 years I've been leading very wide (globally distributed) teams helping them to active as close to co-located efficiency as possible. Currently I think we can get about %90 of the efficiency that could be achieved with a co-located team and that missing %10 is more than made up for by the other advantages of having a wide team. I've also been working with ruby (and rails) for almost 10 years now i.e. since rails was 1.0. In my recent projects I was the lead developer on the teams that built pawlinks.com, plateology.com, subout.com and textgen.com.
