I have a degree in Business and Economics and work part time doing cost projections, accounting, process streamlining and assisting the administration of a large janitorial company in San Salvador, El Salvador. I excel at writing down processes and business plans, and I'm helping the aforementioned company implement procedures under the ISO 9001 norm. I'm well adept at using MS Excel, Access, and Visio as tools for my work. I'm also trilingual: I know English, Spanish, and French, with knowledge of basic Mandarin as well (it's a work in progress). Languages are a passion, so I often tutor friends/acquaintances wanting to learn Spanish/English in my free time and enjoy translating in general. Studying for my degree and taking courses in photography, culinary arts, gardening, and music in English, Spanish, and French has expanded my vocabulary in these three languages, enabling me to be a fast and accurate translator, with impeccable writing style (I use Strunk & White for English). As a curious fact about me, I enjoy classical music (opera) and have been training almost 4 years to sing it. So I'm also up for the odd singing or voice-over job.

Professional and hobbyist developer, with over 15 years of actual development under the belt and 6 years in 'hands-on' management positions (as engagement manager in a consulting firm and then as a CTO in a web startup). My technical experience ranges from desktop (C/C++/C#/Java/VB, scripting in Python/Ruby/VBA), embedded (PIC, ATMEGA, ARM), web (PHP, Ruby on Rails, JS/Coffeescript, HTML5 and some understanding of web design principles and UX construction) and ERP/Business Intelligence (SAP BW, QlickView). These days (2014), I am mostly doing web dev (front-end/back-end) in Ruby, Python and CoffeeScript - they allow very quick iterations and cutting through tons of boilerplate to get to a MVP as quickly as possible. My skills in C/C++ are a bit rusty, but I'll gladly dust them off for an interesting project :) I read Java and C# and don't mind using them as external dependencies, but I do not enjoy working with those. As for my management experience, I have been leading small and large engagements (up to 2 millions EUR) in offshore settings (India, China), both on-site and remotely I feel like I have a good understanding of the communication and management challenges involved in freelancing. As your contractor, I see myself adding value by challenging your requirements, helping you define clear specifications and, if the assignment is large enough to need more than myself as a developer, I can help you screen out other offshore resources and simplify your outsourcing experience.
Highly skilled systems architect and developer with more than 25 years of experience designing, developing and deploying applications, from old single platform “green-screen” to multi-tier / distributed systems. Business experience in manufacturing, accounting, distributing, payroll, finance and TELCO: ✔ Strong knowledge of Java SE and JEE stacks, from early versions 1.x up to latest version SE 7 and JEE 6. ✔ Deep understanding of old technologies such Cobol, ISAM, flat files, pipes, “green screen”, etc. This knowledge allowed me to design, code and implement integrations between new applications with legacy ones. ✔ Solid leading and mentoring skills to help and encourage individuals to maximize their productivity by applying the best practices, frameworks, libraries and technology in general. ✔ I'm always learning about new technologies and tools to ease and reduce time spent in application development and deployment. Technology by itself is worth nothing if it does not solve real world problems.
Jeremy Nagel Agency Contractor
Data scientist turned freelance developer specialising in Zoho Creator/CRM + PHP/Angular JS. I trained as a research scientist and as a programmer, graduating from Monash Uni with first class honours in Bioinformatics/Data Mining in July 2011. Since then I have spent 3 years freelancing as a developer/consultant specialising in the Zoho Suite + custom PHP websites. My clients include Microsoft, Intel, Yarra Valley Water, PixcPhotos.com as well as numerous SMEs. I am a native English speaker living in Australia. My communication skills are first rate: I have won numerous prizes for my writing (e.g. a trip to Switzerland) and public speaking (through Toastmasters). Over the last five years, I have built a large number of websites and software applications in Zoho Creator, PHP, Java, .Net and Python. This means I understand web and software development and I can also explain these concepts to non-tech experts. My current focus is on the Zoho Suite. I started using the products myself, and love them so much that I now make a living from setting them up for my clients. I can build just about any application you like in Zoho Creator (view my portfolio for details). I can help boost your sales by setting up Zoho CRM for you. If customer service is your focus, I can set up Zoho Support for you. And if you're using other software (e.g. accounting packages), chances are I can integrate them into Zoho so your backend systems will play together nicely. A note about pricing: Usually I work on a fixed price basis. I will work with you to develop a project specification and then quote to do the whole job rather than working on an hourly basis. This means you have the peace of mind of knowing exactly how much a project will cost. If the scope changes, we will obviously need to discuss a change in price, but I think it is crucial that your expectations are clear as to how much you will be outlaying. The hourly rate on my profile is for the subcontractors working for me. I generally act as a project manager supervising my developers rather than doing the coding myself because I've got too many projects to handle myself. If you do want me to work exclusively on your project, my rate is $150/hour. Generally people prefer to work with me as a project manager because it works out to be more cost effective, faster and just as high quality because I conduct code reviews and my team and I have an intensive manual and automated QA process before handing over work. Skills: Zoho CRM, Zoho Creator, Zoho Books, PHP, Laravel, Angular JS, jQuery, Fat Zebra, Xero, Base CRM
