German Engineered Ruby on Rails Solutions & Reliab...

Germany - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

Hi, I'm Niels, a seasoned software engineer based in Germany mostly working on web applications of all kinds using Ruby on Rails (3 and 4), (My)SQL, mongodb, redis, HTML(5), CSS and JavaScript in an agile manner. I also set up and maintain Linux servers. Several applications that I architected, implemented and maintain are in active production use. Please see my portfolio for details. I have years of experience as a senior developer – working solo, in co-located teams as well as in distributed teams – and hold a postgraduate diploma in Management of Software Projects. My greatest prides are proactiveness, reliability and good communication Please note that I do *not* do graphic design. Not for a lack of interest, but for an unfortunate lack of artistic talent. Sorry! :)

Fullstack Web Architect

Russia - Last active: 21 hours ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 6

In four intensive years of software development, I have become experienced in a number of critical technologies, including Ruby/RoR stack, Python stack, Javascript frontend/Backend stack, and Java/Scala Web stack. My experiences and skills developed have been especially strong in tasks involving Ruby/RoR. I have found Rails among the best tools available in web development so far, so I am especially enthusiastic about RoR projects. I can also provide expertise in Scala, a great language that I admire, and somewhat in Java, which I have worked with before (I used to write Jira plugins for my corporation). In Scala stack I have worked with Play2 and Slick and have used Guice. I can also use Python if it is necessary and is related to other tasks—for example, if is the project involves Python REST API that I have to work with from JS and if I need to do some fixes in it. In JS stack, my experience is mostly with AngularJS; I also have good experience with and have completed projects in node.js/express.js. In addition to working with socked.io, I have worked with Meteor.js and ReactJS (with flux and reflux architectures). In addition, I can handle DevOP works, especially with the AWS platform, where I have built cloud application infrastructure. In a number of services (obviously ec2, s3 and SES), I used ELB and have good experience with that. Finally, I have worked with Elasticsearch (both as an admin and as a developer), logstash/kibana, redis, mongo, postgres, mysql, and oracle db. When needed, I can work with puppet/chef/(but preferably ansible) and docker, and I also have experience with Varnish cache. I prefer nginx as a web server. Obviously I use git/issue tracker and can't really live without it. I also use IDE for development (IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate) and work from an OSX environment. I also have a Windows environment for various tests. About the posted hourly rate: This is the rate that I currently ask, but the rate may be negotiated at least in first weeks/month(s) if there's a really interesting project and a team with a real potential to raise my skills. (I like to work in teams.) Did I leave out something you need to know? Feel free to ask any questions about anything I wrote above—and well, about anything. Oh, and one pretty important thing: I've _never_ failed a job that I took.
