As a back-end technical architect / developer, I can develop scalable and stable multi-node server-side applications and also can evaluate your Ruby/Rails application and make suggestions on possible optimizations / refactoring / adopting best practices. As a team lead, I can divide, regroup, prioritize and delegate tasks to developers, consult developers on best practices, ensure high overal quality of software product. I like challenges, have solid skills of problem solving, do not require supervision to successfully perform my duties. Dependability is also one of my key strenghts (never left my work half-done / half-functioning). If my current rate fits your project's budget, contact me to discuss technical and other aspects — I'm looking forward to it.
