    From missile defense systems (AMDWS) to simple LAMP driven web applications for over 10 years I have been working in the Open Source arena with a focus on Linux Systems and some Unix Based Systems (Solaris 10, FreeBSD). I have packaged for multiple Linux distributions, primarily RPM based, but do have some deb experience. For a brief period of time I ran my own Linux Distribution (Synergy Linux) to make in house servers easier to strip down and maintain for various pin point tasks (ie. NTP servers etc.) I am familiar with mock, koji and other Redhat distribution based imaging systems. I have had to edit and write with multiple scripting languages, bash, ruby (selenium), python, perl and even modified C and C++ patches to apply cleanly to new packages. I like a good challenge and to continue pushing myself to learn something new. I currently am working for a great employer as a Linux and Cisco Unified Call Manager Administrator, but I am in what I like to call maintenance mode. So I am looking for challenging side jobs to do in order to keep me on the cutting edge of opensource technologies. Also I don't mind doing remedial jobs just to earn a few extra dollars to further support my family. Depending on what other jobs I am currently doing I may be looking for a Linux support role, or just simply a data entry role I can write a script for. In either scenario I am excited to network and meet new people. Thank you for your consideration (and time in reading this). Kind Regards, Jeremiah  less

    I am an IT professional with 13 years of experience mostly in the banking industry in both the Philippines and Singapore. I have a wide range of experience in IT; from being a developer, application support, test manager and project manager. For the past 9 years I have been based in Singapore and have been exposed to different cultures and working with and managing of off-shore teams for several projects assigned to me by my managers. My technical forte lies with UNIX Shell Scripting and SQL. I have working knowledge on Oracle database administration, PL/SQL, Excel VBA, and various job scheduling tools such as Control-M and Autosys. I also have prior development experience with COBOL and Visual Basic. I am a self-motivated person determined to deliver high quality output to my clients. I am also for process improvement hence I value finding ways to not just deliver the output but to also make it easier to deliver the same projects in the future by introducing changes normally through automation. As of now I am looking for part-time jobs that will focus on Project Management, Application Support, and/or Software Testing in a UNIX-based environment where I can leverage my technical strengths as well as my soft skills.  less
