    Slovenia - Last active: 03/24/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    So yeah, a little about me. I'm 26yo from Slovenia. I just finished my study (masters) with the official title Organization And Management Of Information Systems. I was creating webpages since I was like 12 years old (Notepad, FrontPage, Dreamweaver and what not), then I got into hacking with PHP and working first at SmartCom building internal applications for about a year and a half and then with the biggest Slovenian web agency Innovatif for about 2 years. Next I got into freelancing where I did a Mac app with Objective-C and many Ruby/Rails web apps. For the last 2 years I'm almost exclusively a Ruby developer. I'm also the organizer of Slovenia Ruby User Group. If you want to know more, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    RELIABLE Full Stack Developer (Grails, Groovy, Javascript,Angular.js)

    United States - Last active: 04/15/2014 - Tests: 1

    I am reliable. I have designed, built, and tested dozens of web applications (sites) and web businesses, as a full-stack developer, technical architect and CTO. So far in 2014 I have been building Javascript user interfaces with advanced use of JQuery, Angular.js, CSS3 (Zurb Foundation and Twitter Bootstrap), Groovy and Grails, Highcharts/D3.js while employing other javascript libraries such as Lo-Dash/Underscore and Backbone.js. I have deep experience in implementing highly complex business logic, for example, complex sets of underwriting rules, workflow applications involving legal chains of custody, complex data validation rules and statistical programming including regression model development and data visualization. These systems that I have designed and built have run billions of dollars of financial transactions in the insurance and financial services industries. I have over sixteen years experience in full-stack web application development using Grails, Groovy, Java, HTML5/CSS3,Go (Golang), Ruby on Rails and single page Javascript applications with Angular.js. I have advanced JQuery experience. I have deployment experience on Heroku, Engine Yard, Amazon EC2 and other Amazon Web Services, and on custom server configurations built from the data center floor up. I actually get projects done on time and on budget. I am a veteran financial services system developer and architect. I was with Accenture for 8 years in their technical architecture skill track, in the financial services consulting group, and built numerous systems in finance, banking, and insurance. I worked on systems for JP Morgan, State Farm Insurance, American General Group, and many other financial service firms. I was a firm expert in transactional risk systems that performed real-time evaluation of risk and performed real-time risk decisioning. In 2007, I worked on Lehman Brothers automated mortgage underwriting system. Wasn't enough to save them from themselves (I have many good stories from that one!). Since 2007 I have owned my own development shop which has at times had up to three developers but as of this year is just made up of just myself. I am located in Oklahoma City, OK. I have developed iPhone applications and designed and built a iPhone mobile ecommerce framework for a startup similar to Uber (which was a little too early in 2009). I know CSS3 but I am not a UX designer. I have experience in responsive CSS3 frameworks. I am willing to travel up to 25% for the right project.

    If you don't have IT or software project experience, please don't contact me (unless you're a trusting adventure-seeker :) Bring Your Own Designer! IT Industry Knowledge Includes: - Best-practice Design & Implementation - B2B & B2C e-commerce - Systems Automation - BPR/Workflows- SaaS/Web 2.0 - Cobranding Vertical Industry Knowledge Includes: - Real Estate, Construction and Manufacturing management systems - Insurance (workflow) - Digital Media (distribution and conversion automation) - Healthcare (data collection & management) Some Background Information: - I have designed, implemented, and administered a wide variety of m$ft infrastructures, operating systems, servers, and applications for over 10 years. - I manage Apache, NFS, Samba, Asterisk, Bind, and other services on Red Hat-esque (CentOS, Fedora) servers. - I have been working with .Net since it was in beta. Before getting into C#, I used VB.Net for several years. - I've been writing enterprise-scale business and data layer code for over 4 years. - I've been managing and programming Microsoft SQL Server since version 6.5 (and am up to date on 200X), and Microsoft Access for many years. - I've worked with MySQL/SQLite and PHP (4+) as a hobbyist for several years. I can perform most any task required to update an existing site, but am probably not suited for a new development project in PHP.- Prior to .Net I programmed in traditional asp using VB Script, COM & DTC. - I manage my own dedicated windows 2k3/8 servers with multiple running applications and servers. - I have experience with a wide variety of third-party components and controls., and can assist in integration, middleware, queuing services, etc. - I'm not a graphic designer, and prefer to leave site layouts and graphics to someone more suited to that type of work. I am ok with creating basic layouts (and working within the popular graphics editing programs), but for a polished look, I'll either work with your designer or contract to another party on your behalf to acheive the look that you're after. Getting What You Pay For: Sure, you can find loads of developers here and on other similar service sites at a fraction of my rates. Why would you pay me? - I will stand behind my work. If you're unhappy, we'll fix it. - I will not charge for time spent figuring out how to solve general technical problems. If I don't already know how to implement a relevant solution, I will spend MY time researching and figuring it out. We're supposed to be professionals, and if we don't understand what the problem is, we shouldn't be charging you. Besides: each time I solve a unique problem, it makes me more effective; for you, me, and my next happy client! NOTE: Most of my work is done for companies' internal intranet, operations and LOB applications. I've added a few items to the portfolio, but please ask me about the other work which I can't showcase. While I'm often bound by NDA/Confidentiality agreements, I can explain more about my background in a general way than is illustrated publicly.
