Web Developer / Debian Linux admin

Germany - Last active: 11/20/2014 - Tests: 4

I am Nicolas Kuttler, a web developer and system administrator with more than a decades' worth of experience. I am working with clients across the globe to build new or improve existing websites and web applications. At the momente I particularly enjoy working with Python and Django, building database driven websites/applications. I am also learning more about cloud deployment tools and hope to get some DevOps work as I have been administering (web-)servers for as long as I have been doing web-related programming. I have also done a lot of WordPress and JavaScript/jQuery work, as well as some PSD2HTML.

Rails dev - Linux admin

Argentina - Last active: 09/21/2014 - Tests: 19

Over the past 20 years I have been involved in several large projects including both software and hardware elements. I am looking to bring my expertise to businesses that have complex needs but don't have the volume to justify the expense of in-house talent. My skills include: - Project and team management: I have led web development projects from 3 to 30 people, using RUP, Scrum and homegrown methodologies. I know how to earn trust and gain the respect of collaborators, management, peers and clients. - Rails - I love the platform and have been working almost exclusively in RoR projects in the past 4 years for several different clients. - I prefer to use Thin, nginx, haml, jQuery, Semantic UI, Webistrano, MySQL or SQL Server, RVM and Rails 4.0 for new RoR projects. - I have experience consuming services like Twilio, SendGrid, UrbanAirship, and interfacing with payment gateways (usually Stripe and PayPal). - TCP/IP networking in general and the most popular protocols: HTTP/HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, SNMP, SSH. I also have a lot of experience troubleshooting connectivity and performance problems. I enjoy working with peers, but I can also work alone as developer and server administrator in small projects.

Seasoned IT Pro / Technology Enthusiast / CEH

United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 4

I am an extremely skilled, motivated, and highly knowledgeable IT professional with 15+ years in the IT industry. I am also an EC Council Certified Ethical Hacker, and in addition to security services, I provide a vast array of technical solutions to both businesses and individuals. From network/server/workstation planning and implementation to advanced troubleshooting and traffic analysis, I am THE answer to your technical demands. Add to this the fact that technology isn't just my profession; it's my passion, and you will discover why my clients have been with me for years and wouldn't consider switching. I absorb and become well-versed at any issue thrown my way, and will get to the bottom of whatever roadblock I encounter. Who I am not: your average neighborhood tech geek, a rep from a fly-by-night shop, or someone sending proposals to any listing that appears. I choose my applications very carefully, and make sure I have budgeted enough time to complete the task required. I also do not apply for jobs that I'm not 100% certain I can handle. Due to these and many other reasons, I have built a solid name for myself locally, and will do so here as well. You'll be glad you chose to have done business with me, and I look forward to meeting your technological challenges head-on.
