    I've been in the web development field since 2002, when I started as a programmer/admin for a web hosting company. I've worked on a variety of web applications (generally php/MySQL based) ranging from ecommerce to in-house CMS to data mining/feed processing to integrating APIs and web services. I've worked with a number of PHP frameworks (Zend, CodeIgniter, CakePHP), and generally like working with a MVC design pattern. I've developed web applications from the ground up, as well as modified and added functionality to existing custom in-house systems, opensource applications, and commercial applications. I've worked with various APIs, including: Twilio, Twitter, Foursquare, Amazon, PayPal, Drop.io, Sunlight Labs, EmailYak, and others. I've written wrappers for APIs, as well as written APIs for outside integration into applications I've written. I am comfortable working with other developers and designers. In addition I've been asked to do code review and troubleshooting for projects where I had no active role. My profile on StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/users/45531/tim-lytle) is a good sample of my ability to communicate the details of a development problem/solution. I'm also a Zend Certified Engineer (http://www.zend.com/store/education/certification/yellow-pages.php#show-ClientCandidateID=ZEND011439) with experience administering apache/mysql/php/etc on Linux (and a bit on Windows). Most of my oDesk clients are buyers who need high-level, conceptual requests to be understood and implemented, and the projects are ongoing long-term relationships.  less

    You grow the business, while I support you with dedication, integrity, excellence and confidentiality. In this new era where everything is online, although my office location is in the Philippines, all my clients are from USA, Canada, Australia, and Great Britain. I have been in the Outsourcing Industry for more than 4 years and have built the reputation as an Industry Leader. Despite being in the Top List of Freelancers, I continue to personally serve all my clients. Unlike the rest, I personally do all the work. I believe that clients hire me because of my expertise. I do not believe in passing the work to another freelancer. This is the reason why all my clients are satisfied with my work. Being an International Certified Public Accountant who focuses on clients using Netsuite and Quickbooks, I have served almost all types of business all over the world, to include trading, manufacturing, retailing and service. For the past 9 years in Accounting & Audit Practice, I have gained excellence in the field of systems, control and analysis. My experience and full background in Audit structured my capability in analytics, problem solving and critical thinking. My expertise is greatly focused on Netsuite and Quickbooks. I have been using these for at least 4 years now. However, I also have full expertise in using Xero, MYOB, Accounts IQ, Peachtree, Microsoft Money, SAP, and Oracle. In handling activities, dedication, integrity, excellence and confidentiality are inherent elements in my work. Having a degree in Business Law and Taxation as well as Civil and International law, I provide business-related legal advice useful your company 24/7 as a value added service. In addition to Accounting and Taxation, my services are also demanded for Financial Planning and Analysis. In my effort to be an asset of my client, I ensure that I communicate and explain the financial results of the company. This will ensure that accounting data will not be merely for taxation purposes, but most importantly, to aide my client in decision making and advancement of the business. I work side by side with CEOs and Presidents of companies in my client list through stable online communication using Skype, Teamviewer, Gotomeeting, or Logmein, whichever suits them best. Reports are constantly shared and updated via Dropbox, Box, Google Drive or through emails. While my bosses grow the company, I provide on-time and reliable financial accounting reports and advice to guarantee the soundness of any critical decisions made, all in the name of strong dedication and loyalty to my clients.  less
