    Instrumentation Engineer / Technical Writer

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 30 - Portfolio: 6

    The objective here is to do high quality work on the given job assignment as efficiently as possible. I am flexible enough to work on many aspects of a technical project, from initial concept to final release. Most of my recent jobs involved writing user guides and manuals, software specifications, and other forms of technical documentation. In many of my technical writing assignments, I would analyze or do research on a complex topic, and then explain it in a simplified document that can be easily understood by non-technical readers. I often discovered potential problems that needed to be corrected. I would also code some software occasionally to correct a bug in a program or add a new feature to a product. I have experience with C/C++, Visual Basic, and various assembly languages. I am also skilled on both the Linux and UNIX based operating systems. Some other areas of expertise include circuit and PCB design, software testing, and data analysis on Excel charts.
