Web Developer / WordPress Developer

United States - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

I'm a front-end web developer with about 5 years experience with WordPress creating themes and plugins from scratch. I recently released an open-source plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/stripe-for-woocommerce/) that integrates Stripe as a payment gateway for WooCommerce and have plenty more in the works. In addition to my WordPress work, I've developed a few jQuery plugins and countless responsive sites. I do a lot of testing before releasing a product to ensure that bugs are difficult to find if not non-existant.

Sweden - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

I am French (bilingual italian) and I have been living in Sweden since 2011. I am currently looking for a position corresponding to my experience either as a Writer/ Webmaster/Copywriter/Proofreader or translator /SEO translator (ideally working from home). After an extensive period of training (in Languages, Literature and Multimedia), I have been working for the last 15 years in the Web sector where I held several different positions (webmaster/web editor/writer/proofreader/copywriter). Over the years, I had to face the permanent challenge of adapting my work to ever changing demands from clients while staying as close as possible to the fast-moving requirements of the media sector. This challenge gave me the opportunity to develop and deepen my skills further allowing me to match as closely as possible the ever demanding needs of the sector. Thus, my skills have become over time more technical and graphic-oriented, although the text itself has remained at the core of my work. A genuine sensitivy for literary work - and more generally literature - meant that my professional work has always been guided by a true concern for rigour and conciseness. Finally, I had throughout my life the opportunity to live in different countries and to evolve in various cultural environments. This gave me an ability to adapt quickly to people as well as circumstances and to develop the open-mindedness required in today’s multicultural world.

Writer and Editor

Australia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

I have many years experience writing for websites, both in my professional life working at national and international sporting organisations in the NRL, Super Rugby and Cricket Australia; and my own personal website - www.travellingapples.com. Since joining oDesk I have written for clients in a wide variety of industries including automotive, retail, health and fitness, real estate, sport and education. As you can see from my ratings and comments I am more than capable of producing high quality work across a wide range of areas. I have a Bachelor of Education Degree and was a schoolteacher for five years before embarking on a nine year career working in professional sport as a media manager, digital media manager and General Manager of Communications. I then started my own business from scratch, which was a first for me, before selling it to help fund my family's current global nomadic adventure. I also have extensive experience managing social media platforms, particularly Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I established the Melbourne Storm's social media platforms, building the Facebook following to over 110,000. I was also contracted by Etihad Stadium in Melbourne in 2013 to establish their social media presence, with particular focus on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, with huge success.
