I've already established longterm work relationships with several clients now ... morebut am always interested in meeting new clients and lending a helping hand with my excellent problem-solving skills, fast and accurate communication, and acquired API knowledge base. My top skills include: - 110 WPM and excellent verbal and written skills - I respond very, very quickly - extremely good memory - I've been running half a dozen projects in parallel for the last couple of years and am able to stay on track with each one individually - critical thinking + common sense - I find the optimal solutions which strike a balance between elegance, speed, and budget - management skills - I can run a team of developers and can use technical knowledge combined with vision and time management skills to keep everyone on track - big picture skills - I've been working closely with each of my clients (CEOs) to ensure that what we're developing meets short and longterm goals - humility - yes, it's a bit counterintuitive to be able to list this without sort of violating it conceptually... but I'm always the first and quickest to admit mistakes and to correct anything that goes wrong, which I've noticed is pretty unique in a developer My actual developer skills include: - 10+ years with PHP (class based) - 10+ years with MySQL (2 years architecting from scratch) - 4+ years with Linux servers, including SSH command line - 2 years with Git - 1.5 years doing heavy-duty, complex API integration As a consultant, I'm extremely good at optimizing development flow and keeping everyone on track with deadlines and budget. I have the ability to be strict as well as forgiving because I understand the technical demands and can adapt my communications accordingly. This I believe is my greatest value to add to any company on a low hours per week basis at my listed pay rate, sort of an on-demand arrangement. As a developer, I think I'm best suited as a backend developer handling server-side communication. I have a solid amount of frontend experience with HTML5, CSS, jQuery, and Javascript, but I prefer to spend my critical thinking time on solving data flow-related puzzles behind the scenes. To-date, I've worked extensively with clients from the following fields: 1. Restaurant delivery service - created portals to receive and integrate orders through multiple 3rd party APIs 2. Wall decal business - became the primary manager of a dedicated Admin server with full Amazon MWS capabilities 3. Graphics supplier for physical products - built an entire scheduling and file internal system from scratch and took the entire company of 60+ employees online, cutting out the vast majority of on-paper communications 4. Multi-million dollar landscaping business - connected multiple 3rd party services together with bidirectional syncing and many-step-processes-with-a-single-button-click logic to streamline the flow of bidding, projects and accounting I continue to work with all 4 of these clients and have also done another 20+ projects outside of these on Elance/Upwork. I look forward to working with you and am very confident that I can make a difference! less
