I am a professional software developer with 15 years' experience in the financial services industry. I am an expert-level programmer in Java and C++, Excel/Office/VBA, and SQL/RDBMS technologies. I have also developed solutions using Python, UNIX Kornshell, Matlab and scala. I have long experience in implementing quantitative/mathematical solutions involving standard and original numerical methods. I speak English, French and some Dutch and German, and I have long experience in writing and amending both technical documentation and non-technical prose. I am currently engaged in a Masters in linguistics and computational linguistics, and thus have some spare time for freelance development.
I recently left my job after several years at a leading financial PR and communications company in Central London - where I gained wide experience working for many FTSE100, FTSE250 and multinational companies - to set up my own business in bespoke media analysis. I now focus on providing clients with tailored reports on what the web and print media is reporting about them and their competitors. I am looking for regular business partnerships (several clients currently receive reports on a monthly basis - which is ideal for benchmarking performance - both for the client over time, as well as compared to their peers), as well as ad-hoc assignments. Please note that my hourly rate is flexible - I have listed my standard hourly rate for non oDesk clients, but am certainly open to negotiation if the project is right, so please don't hesitate to get in touch. I have an M.A. in Public International Law, as well as a Bachelors degree in Politics and International Relations. Although a UK national, I grew up in Norway, and would be delighted to take on international clients. I also have a strong background in editing, having worked on many large research reports and pitches, as well as having worked on several film scripts in my free time - so would also be interested in taking on this type of work.
Along my career in market research, I have developed strong quantitative research skills working across several sectors both agency and clientside, in UK and internationally. My skills span from primary and secondary research. I have also developed strong data analysis skills using advanced techniques in SPSS, survey software scripting (eg Vovici) and reporting. I can also help with translations from portuguese - english and vice-versa.
