I can offer you over seventeen years of experience in web development for top-tier companies and their web properties, over six years in high profile and award-winning iOS development, and a great eye for detail. All of which should make me an ideal candidate. I have spent the last six years running my own iOS development company where I handle every aspect of the App lifecycle. My flagship App, StockWatch, has been in the Top 25 since the AppStore began in 2008, including the Top 3 for over two years. In addition, Apple chose StockWatch for the iTunes Rewind Top Apps of 2010. I am located in the NYC area.
For 15+ years I have been developing software from all angles - back-end through front-end. I have worked with numerous languages, frameworks and tools but find myself happiest when working with the .NET Framework/C# - I have worked with the .NET Framework since it was first released. Over the past decade-and-a-half, I have proven myself a valuable asset to any team/project on which I have been placed. I have very strong development skills including .NET (C#), database design, UI/UX, front-end (HTML5, CSS3, JS), back-end (SQL Server, MySQL), web services/APIs, etc. I always end up being the go-to guy for other team members when they have questions and I'm happy to mentor more junior developers. I've worked on projects of all sizes ranging from small internal systems to large public-facing systems. I am constantly keeping up with the latest trends in software development and in my free time I usually have one or two personal projects going on. I tend to prefer working with C# but have also worked with Java/J2EE, Ruby on Rails, PHP, etc. I am open to other languages, technologies and frameworks - whichever is best for the job. I have strong front-end web development experience including working with 3rd party frameworks such as jQuery, jQuery UI, Knockout, Bootstrap and others. I have designed and built web applications from scratch and have also worked with designers to implement functionality based on pre-determined designs. I'm a hard working software engineer who prides himself on the quality and completeness of his work. I work efficiently while adhering to best practices and remaining mindful of performance, potential bottlenecks, memory usage, etc. I would be a great addition to any project as a single developer or as a new developer on an existing team.
