I'm an overachieving business-savvy data magician and a natural problem solver. In my free time, I code and analyse stuff. Why not do it for you? I have been a Business Consultant / Efficiency Advisor for the last 5 years, a job that I "augmented" with analytics and programming as often as humanly possible. This has led me to start my own consulting firm. I mostly use Excel 2013 (w/ VBA and PowerTools) and Python. Alternates are R and Tableau... or pretty much anything else that can be learned. My current projects focus on Data Science in general (elm.bi and datafra.me).
Following completion of a large scale Salesforce implementation project within a FTSE 100 Commercial Property company in Central London I am now looking to utilise my knowledge and experience on a freelance basis. I specialise in Salesforce administration/ configuration (eg: custom objects/ page layouts/ record types/ reports and dashboards and much more) and can also offer consultancy on implementation projects/ strategies, business analysis, user training and technical support. My background is in the commercial property industry and I am now looking to apply my skills within other industries and working freelance gives me the best opportunity to do this. I have, at my disposal, the experience and know-how of various technical consultants and specialist Salesforce developers with who I have developed a healthy working relationship which benefits all of us, our clients first and foremost, on the respective projects that we undertake.
I hold an MSc in Mathematical Finance from University of Oxford, and an undergraduate degree (dipl.ing.) in Mechanical Engineering from University of Zagreb. I have been working in finance, on an institutional investor side, for the last 8 years. In this period, I have performed a very wide spectrum of tasks related to the capital markets: setting up investment funds; investment fund mergers; risk modelling/analysis; financial modelling/analysis; company valuations; setting up risk monitoring and control functions; quantitative analysis; writing design specifications for financial software modules & functions, and their implementation; business process design and mapping; design and management of internal regulations on group- and company-level; performing key compliance roles and liaising with the regulating authority; writing prospectuses for UCITS and non-UCITS funds; managed procurement of AMCo authorisation for the provision of MiFID, UCITS, and non-UCITS regulated financial services; setting up MiFID regulated services. However, I have been working closely with many startups, and have invested in a few myself. In recent time, I have been involved with an incubator, where I act as a business/finance mentor. I have also been writing business plans and investment plans for firms of various sizes, and acting as an advisor to clients in various industries, helping them procure equity and debt finance for startups and investment projects. I have experience coding and modelling in Python, VBA, and Matlab, but don't expect wonders: it's mostly been some rather simple work developing specific financial/risk modelling applications, parsing financial data from web sources, etc. I have a deep understanding of energy efficiency and renewable energy, having advised a few clients on project financing in this area. I have been involved in several EU projects as a lecturer, leading internal trainings in financing energy efficiency projects (with focus on energy performance contracting). I am very excited by the developments in the area of cryptocurrencies, and would love to get involved with startups and companies active in this space. I will happily accept payment in BTC/LTC/Đ.
