My Name is Rodolfo Ramalho, 28 years old, I worked as a IT Support Engineer, graduated in Computer Networks by UNINOVE. I have been living in Dublin for the last six months studying English in the Irish Business School Dublin. My goal is to become fluent in English language in order to meet the demand of the Information Technology sector in this country. I have been worked with IT from over 10 years, with leading companies in Brazil and the World: Itau, Alog, T-Systems, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Tivit, MCPBrasil, Nortel Networks. I am able to build, manage and motivate teams. Always in search of the best results, fast adaptation to new processes, activities and environments. I have strengths as persistence, determination and commitment. I am Specialist in corporate environments. Implementation, Management and Administration Windows Server and Linux. Thorough knowledge and experience with Active Directory, Exchange, DFS, RRAS, RIS, Cluster, NLB, RDS, Terminal Server, IIS, DNS, DHCP, LCS, WSUS, Fore Front, System Center, Virtual Server, Hyper-V, ISA, TMG and Skill in Deployment GPO. Experience in the best practices of ITIL (Incident, Problem, Change, Release, Configuration, Availability, Capacity, Service Level and Service Desk), ISO 27001 and Project Management. Always working with good personal relationships, promptness and courtesy at all levels, and the propensity to interact consciously and participate within a team.

Active Directory 2003 to 2008, IIS 6 to IIS 7, ISA to TMG, Implementation and Management Environment DR (Disaster Recovery). Extensive knowledge in planning and documentation of physical infrastructure and logic.
I value intellectual honesty, equanimity and dispassionate discourse, diversity of perspective, creative collaboration, scientific inquiry, and a healthy, nuanced sense of humor. I value people, not organizations. I draw a lot of diagrams and carry a notebook and whiteboard wherever I go. Given a pot of coffee, or a few pints, and a lot of markers, I'll talk shop for hours. I recently took up juggling just so I can think faster. Incidentally, it's also fun. Some wordier information follows. Since entering networking in 2004, I've had the good fortune of being given unfettered access to a smorgasbord of technologies from numerous vendors in a wide variety of implementations. The gestalt of this practical experience is enhanced pattern recognition, which has proven invaluable when encountering new technologies and unfamiliar systems. I've also developed a fairly unhealthy relationship with the Internet, and for all her vexing inconsistencies and mind-boggling architectural flaws, I always run right back. BGP had me at "Open." I strive always to distill recursive complexity from seemingly inextricable intricacy, reducing special cases to degenerate ones (though, in the wild, an 80% solution is often quite good). I prefer primary research and the considered development of new processes and best practices to the repetitive application of existing ones, and this drives me to automate the tedious bits wherever possible. I'm always in search of new and interesting problems--and new methods with which to solve them. To that end, I spend a great deal of time writing code and studying mathematics, all the while finding new applications to ground the theory. If I stumble upon a particularly recalcitrant problem, I teach everyone I see about it until some vital insight reveals itself or I find someone to instead teach me.
