I will identify opportunities to reduce cost and/or drive revenue. 10+ years experience engineering in business.
Let's begin with a conversation.
You Know Your Business.
Every lever and knob, input and output, gear and wheel that enables your business to thrive has been built on your experience.
Call me a huge geek, but- I would be delighted to listen to your experience and unpack those gritty details.
If you let me get to know your business, I will identify opportunities to reduce cost and/or drive revenue. In the right cases, I may be available to build and implement custom software platforms to realize those opportunities.
All my life I've been studying machines, taking them apart and building new ones- I would look forward to the opportunity to build a machine accelerating value for your business.
All my best,
I have 20+ years software engineering experience and 10+ years professional contracting in NYC, serving tours of duty on campaigns for numerous Fortune 100 clients, co-founding a few companies and working with local businesses and permaculture to engage my passion for sustainable building.
For hire, I build Turn-Key Web Platforms.
* Industrial Market Survey Web App enabling a global quality process management services firm to streamline their new-proposal pipeline (a department that had previously been using paper forms for the past 2 decades) and reduce turnaround time from 3 months down to less than 1 month.
* 50 U.S. States Map Comparison Widget Platform enabling a major educational institution to create and manage custom maps (implementing a sleek design made by their creative agency and delivered to me as PSDs for building) which their authors can embed freely on their various blogs easily with 1 line of code.
* Store Locator Widget Platform enabling a major brand to create and manage custom store locators (implementing their creative agency's design) which their subsidiary brands can embed on their various static websites easily with 1 line of code. The platform uses a 3rd party data service firm as a backing store to perform searches for various product availability nationwide in real time.
My preferred languages/frameworks are Ruby/Rails and Node/Express. I'm religious about technical architecture and Agile software development project management. Workflow is Trello for ideation and scrum, Pivotal Tracker for stories, GitHub for source code, CircleCI continuous integration, Heroku deployment for prototyping and handoff to larger dev ops firms past 1+ million user scale.
