Hello I've started my IT career in far 1998. I started working as a software developer/sysadmin at local company, providing building services for government and individuals. There I had my first experience with databases (FoxPro), network and world of financial services software (warehouse, payroll, accounting, amortization). From 2003 to 2007 I worked at local bank branch as software developer. I've configured and deployed into production a number of financial software solutions (loans, accounting, end-of-day reports) and had a great experience in finding out how corporate software work. From 2007 to 2014, I had a role of senior software developer inside Online Backup Service project with rich Windows Desktop client and efficient Server-Side part. Developed UI (WinForms, WPF) and server (data storage, quick search and retrieval). Integrated existing applications with third-party company's APIs. Starting from 2014, I'm working at oDesk, trying to do my best to provide my customers with every bit of knowledge and experience I have. Now I'm studying MEAN technology stack, dreaming to take part in some really big data and high-load project. In my portfolio you can find some applications I've had the most impact on. I believe my strong points are analytical thinking and strategic vision. I constantly search for new ways to increase my productivity and knowledge base. I spend hours every week, watching training videos on various fields of computer science and economics (for my current pet-project). This way I'm somewhat compensating the lack of degree in Computer Science. My primary goal will always be to meet your needs and deadline. When working on a new project, I prefer to have clear understanding of customer's needs and vision of the project. I like to have a good picture of the project. And in case I see that something can be improved, I express it without hesitation. Thanks for your time and consideration. I look forward to working with you soon. Listed below are my experience and skills. — .NET Framework 2 - 4.5.1, WPF, WinForms, Universal apps for Windows Store; - Unit testing: NUnit, RhinoMocks; - Data: MSSQL, Oracle, MySQL, SQLite, XML, JSON; - IDE: VS2007-2013, Eclipse, WebStorm; - OS: Windows, Windows Phone; - VCS: Git, Mercurial, SVN; - Bug/Issue trackers: Jira, OnTime; - SQL, T-SQL; - UML, Modeling, Technical Writing.
