First i am a proud nerd. In fact, an expert nerd. Additected to every new tecnologies and i have programmed everything from basic to c++ , including cobol, fortrand, pascal, lisp, prolog and of course HTML, java , php. My first program was when i was 12, i have programmed a database to manage all my games and books... in a 48k timex spectrum. So while my friends were actually trying to play games i was having fun with basic. At 18 i was doing a neural language AI application in prolog for high school. I was owner of computer companies and worked from architectural and machinery design in Autocad where i programed in Lisp to accelerate my work. My latest personal projects was the creation of a Telecom provider where i have solely developed the billing software and managed all the sites and linux servers. I am the CEO and owner of that company. So i became na expert on VoIP solutions , including asterisk where i have contributed with code changes. With that knowledge i have created and developed a new range of communication servers that today have the most advanced features i know, however having a simple , intuitive interface. Since these challenges are "done" and i need to have new projects to be happy, I am presently looking for new challenges and i have been playing with Android and its wonders. I also developed some Android applications on my own. Personally i am a workaholic. A proactive and self motivated person that in all projects i enter i give my 100%. I am a honest frontal person, i will allways contribute positivily with ideas in the projects i get involved. I am flexible and i work well under pressure, i sometimes make coworkers more nervous because i keep looking relaxed even when people are starting to panic. (this took years of training). So if you have an interesting project that is a challenge to me. I'm In!!

Quant Finance, Trading Strategies, Algorithms, C#,...

United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 2

If you want to create a trading system, run a statistical analysis, develop a pricing model, build a financial GUI, or find a pattern in a sea of data, I may be the guy to help. I work primarily in MATLAB, C#, and Python. On the finance side, I'm a CAIA Charterholder, with an Economics degree and experience at McKinsey & Company. On the technical side, I hold degrees (with honors) in Engineering, and worked at a number of California tech companies through the 1990's and early 2000's. Since 2008 I've focused my work in the field of computational finance. Recent clients have included: a Swiss proprietary trading desk (Energy Futures), a Canadian hedge fund (Currencies), a US asset management firm (Equities & Bonds), a US portfolio consulting firm, a US aircraft manufacturing operation, and several others. For those clients I have developed, backtested, and deployed alpha-seeking trading strategies, automated execution algorithms, portfolio optimization models, user-friendly GUI tools. Techniques have included machine learning algorithms, classifiers, feature detectors, digital filters, matrix-based models, and concepts borrowed from detection theory and signal processing, along with various technical analysis indicators. I've worked with many financial platforms and data feeds: Deltix QuantOffice (C#), CQG API, Bloomberg, Interactive Brokers API, MultiCharts (PowerLanguage), MultiCharts.NET (C#), TradeStation (EasyLanguage), FIX (HotspotFx), ITCH (HotspotFx), etc. I can integrate other systems with MATLAB or Excel where there's an advantage. I've created C/C++ .mex files, VBA macros, Java/MATLAB integration, MATLAB/Excel integration. I've been programming in MATLAB since 1990, and can sometimes get it to do things that others can't. I can also translate or port a MATLAB application to other languages, especially Python or C#. I'm located in Southern California. For clients located within 2 hours, I can drive to meet you (sometimes same day, schedule permitting). I'm also happy to work remotely. I'm a US Citizen and have held a security clearance, though it is no longer active. The foundation of every successful project is good communication. If you have a project that needs to be done well, then let's communicate!

Argentina - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 5

I am a software designer and programmer and Unix admin. I've been programming for 20 years. More than 10 years of working remotely and I think I'm a very good team player. What motivates me most is to learn something new. My main strengths are my academic background (I studied computer science at the UBA university in Argentina) and that I'm a proactive, independent worker. Whenever I can, I find the answers by myself. Currently I'm interested in non UI, back end jobs. I developed websites (not web design) but that's not what I'm looking for right now. Very good knowledge of: Languages: Python, Perl, C, Unix tools. VCS: Git, svn. DB: Postgresql, Mysql. Non rel DBs: Redis. Web frameworks: Django, Catalyst. Bug tracking systems: Jira, Mantis, Bugzilla. I always worked on Unix and all its flavors, so I got a lot of experience on its usage, networking, administration, operating system internals, etc. Different jobs and curiosity by itself made me learn lots of different languages, APIs, frameworks, like Ruby, PHP, Javascript (esp. JQuery), Twitter and FB APIs, Amazon S3, etc.

Communications Strategist - Writer, Editor, Creati...

Spain - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 14

Every company, organization, and individual has a motivation – a thought that comes into being, waiting for the moment to be expressed into actions and words. Often, thoughts linger on the verge of development due to the inability to partially or entirely transform them into literature; or the hesitation that doing so will deviate from the powerful essence of a thought that could ‘become’. Benefit from a communications strategist who will collaborate with you – from a writer, editor, and creative wordsmith perspective – to create original content as well as interpret your ideas, concepts, and literary works. Your existing communications will also be developed and enhanced to exceed your objectives and goals. We will work together to identify areas for improvement while outlining a strategy for change, and exploring innovative possibilities. Ours is a potential collaboration towards successfully creating, developing, and achieving your communication goals. I offer clarification through consultation and compose to establish literary flow. I am a wordsmith architect whose expertise is complemented by 20+ years of collaborating with companies from multiple sectors, corporate-level executives, entrepreneurs, and others. My sought-after consultation is also a reflection of my inherent ability to ‘engage’ by accessing the feeling of what you are trying to communicate. My collaborations have included: Entrepreneurs - establishing clear communication of their ideas Corporations - helping to develop written strategies Websites - in search of quality content Book authors - requiring a keen eye for creative and emotional infusion Book publishers - editing and proofreading for continuity Business startups - developing the foundation of their identity Marketing companies - for perspective to improving and expanding their message Translations companies - quality English writing across multiple industries The mom - seeking to express the depth of her sentimentality The student - fulfilling his/her written university requirements The executive - requiring beneficial insight and organization These collaborations, and more, are supported by an ongoing recognition of achievements and acknowledgements: "You get me." "You exceeded my expectations." "You knew exactly what I wanted to say." "You understood the objective from my perspective." "Your ability to evaluate, communicate, and deliver is extraordinary."
