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! :)

Team Lead, Senior Ruby on Rails, co-founder at RM

Ukraine - Last active: 22 days ago - Tests: 1

I'm a Tech Lead with about 8 years experience in web-development and about 4 years in Ruby on Rails. I have in portfolio more than 40+ finished rails projects from social platforms and e-commerce to SaaS. I'm self motivated, can solve complex tasks in a short time. In the past two years my main roles were architecture planning, choosing the right technology stack using the client's requirements, development management, team management I like Agile and use it every day - iterations, scrum daily meetings, retrospectives. I like confident code and TDD/BDD. I'm experienced in RSpec, Capybara and Cucumber. Often I help clients to understand what will be the best development approach for them. Do they need only MVP or there is a sense in building full version. What technologies are best for their project. Plan deadlines and budget. I'm very familiar with AWS technologies stack - setup EC2 instance from scratch, configure balance loader(EBL), setup push notifications service(SNS), emails(SES), database instances(RDS), and other services I have an experience in buiding a high-load applications, huge processing centers with 1,000,000 processed jobs daily(in Sidekiq), PostgreSQL database size more than 500GB and everything places on EC2 instance with 32 Cores and 68GB RAM. That was very excited. I'm a fun of continues integration and continues deploy practices. I also have experience in front-end development: JavaScript on advanced level, canvas, CoffeeScript, web-sockets(socket.io) with node.js back-end, backbone.js, Ember.js In the past years there is a trend to have an application with RESTful JSON API built in Ruby on Rails. I have experience in building more than 5 different APIs for different projects. Some of them were versioning and have up to v4. There is always a challange to support old versions, but we successfully doing it. Some have HIPAA protection, one application had a really complex structure of API URLs but it was very easy to work with it in the end since we built it human readable. Thanks for you time!

I am a talented and experienced full-stack web application developer. I work almost exclusively in Ruby on Rails. I love developing applications “the Rails way”. I appreciate the brilliance of the Rails architecture and enjoy using it to build world-class applications. I’ve created a number of complex systems using Rails including e-commerce sites, inventory management systems, scheduling systems, forum applications, internal organizational systems, and order fulfillment systems. My rails knowledge is also augmented with intimate knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Sass, SQL, and jQuery.

FP Developer / Mentor

United Kingdom - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2

I'm an expert in Clojure and Scala functional programming, and scalable systems. My greater background is in Java development and I have sufficient knowledge of Javascript and web front end programming to be productive. I'm well versed in all stages of application development, from the early planning and pre-planning days on to post release. I'm a big fan of agile and the devops movement, and I love to work in great cross-discipline teams. I've been remote contracting for over a year now, I'm a great communicator and familiar with a wide range of remote collaboration tools. Before this I was an employee at Mind Candy, an entertainment startup based in London, where I was working on Scala and Java development, at first on the Moshi Monsters game and then later leading back end development on the Moshling Rescue mobile and Facebook game. Both titles required efficient, well designed code able to scale to many concurrent users and easily handle times of peak load. Throughout my time at Mind Candy I also acted as a mentor to other members of staff that were coming newly to Scala from a Java background, helping to ease their transition and become fully adept at writing idiomatic functional Scala code. As well as development I've been involved heavily in "developer multiplier" tasks, through such things as adding continuous integration servers, building a deployment pipeline, adding code metrics and other, more manual, things such as code reviews. I'm a big fan of sharing information, presenting what I'm working on and interested in and hearing about the same from others. I can help you with development, system design, choosing a database (SQL and NoSQL) and designing data types, scaling systems, migrating from Java to Clojure or Scala, improving your tooling and build chain, and more. I'm available for long term engagement, or for shorter projects.
