Experienced IT manager (over 6 years on different management positions). Career I'm pursuing would include: - UML methodologies for planning both front-end and back-end development. UML standards in gathering requirements and interviewing the users. (even though recommended for app development makes miracles in web dev as well. Makes your job much coherent and with no additional project changes). - Charting software (gliffy, Enterprise architect, LucidCharts) - Agile methodology (Scrum and Kanban, even made my own adaptations on few of my last jobs. I guess this beats "by the book" approach) - Task management software (JIRA, Basecamp, Asana, Trello....practically I've tested troughly or used most of ones that exist on the market). - I understand version control software (GIT) and DEV-TEST-PRODUCTIVE set up. (I dont do the code and couldn't set stuff up, but I can point developers in right direction) - I have worked on QA of many sites - I have run the daily stand up meetings and tracked lot of projects already, so I'll be able to fulfill all the tasks you had listed with great efficiency and bring value in $$'s to your company. - I have experience with Google Analytics, Crazzy Egg ( heatmapping software), conversion driven design and sales copies (I don't write them, but I'll be able to recognize good content and to give proper suggestions). All this give me the power to manage building of SUCCESSFUL sites and apps. All those allow me to overview the cash flow on projects, manage them with respect to the budget of the project, and work with You closely on general strategies. I've hired a lot of developers,designers, content writers.... via oDesk or other online service. I can handle tasks that require me to learn new things fast and provide solutions. I'm also the one to get help via regular chat and phone support. I've worked for a bit longer then a year as a call center representative. This gives me ability to handle support stuff and get the solutions. For 5-10 smaller projects it would probably take 10-15hours a week of my work to get everything running smoothly. Your support of my suggestions is required. I'm able to edit WP themes and do smaller adjustments myself. (I realized that lot of tasks in WP are faster to solve then to assign to a developer)
