As my profile shows I currently have oDesk contracts with five major IT companies that utilize my skills and expertise to assist with project management and proposal writing consultancy. I had a past client who has left me somewhat questionable feedback due to unhappiness he experienced. I learned from this experience to only communicate with the hiring client on proposal requirements. He had delegated daily communications with an employee of his who provided conflicting guidance. I followed his employee's guidance, which wasn't the strategy that the hiring client had. Let these four active oDesk contracts and my past experiences be your guide on my abilities and experiences.

Full Stack Website Developer

Poland - Last active: less than one minute ago

I specialize in developing Java web applications, mainly using Spring Framework, JSF and Hibernate. I have over 7 years of experience in this field working on many big and small projects. I feel very comfortable working on complex and demanding projects while still maintaining high standards and quality as well as a bullet-proof code, despite pressing deadlines; I work right the first time, correct own errors, regularly produce accurate, thorough, professional work. I have the ability to break a situation down into smaller pieces to identify its key or underlying issues. It includes not only organizing the parts of a problem systematically and comparing all the aspects of a problem, but also figuring out cause-and-effect relationships (if...then...) that can help solve it. I am able to adapt and be open to new ideas and improvements to products and processes.

Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 17 days ago - Tests: 4

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

Senior PHP Dev, SOLID, PHPUnit, Laravel, Clean Cod...

United States - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 13

Over the last 14+ years, I've developed a wide variety of skills that would be a huge contribution to your team or project. I especially enjoy working with the Laravel framework, but also have experience with CodeIgniter for legacy projects, as well as plain old object-oriented PHP. And I mean real object-oriented PHP, not procedural PHP hidden away in classes. I believe that utilizing composer for package management and autoloading, combined with a solid suite of unit tests will result in the best possible product. I believe in delivering only the highest quality work because *YOU* deserve nothing less. I'm a very dedicated, passionate, and ENTHUSIASTIC developer with a great eye for detail. Quality is hugely important to me and so you can hire me knowing that the end product will be nothing short of *awesome*. As a matter of fact, all of my custom programming is backed by my LIFETIME GUARANTEE! If anything ever breaks, I fix it FREE OF CHARGE -- for life. See full details at http://www.infinitywebcreations.com/lifetime-guarantee/. Lastly, I know that I'm not the least expensive developer on oDesk. I'm not trying to be. If you're looking for a Wordpress, Magento, OpenCart, Joomla, etc "developer" or some developer for a small throw-away project, I'm definitely not your guy. But if you're looking for absolute TOP quality from a developer who follows the SOLID principles and knows how to design a robust, tested application and plays well with others on your team -- then let's talk. Thanks so much for looking. Mike

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 7

Greetings! My name is Daniel Edwards. I'm a graphic designer with 15 years of experience in print, web and brand design. I charge a little more than some of the designers on oDesk, but what you get for that extra money is someone who's a fast, efficient, and who will deliver an amazing product the first time without any of the complications you might get from someone charging less. I'm all about communication and I love feedback, because every project is a group effort between the client and the designer. I'm also absolutely professional, very prompt, and I can turn around a project lightening fast. My experience includes designing magazines, books, brochures, presentations, websites and web graphics, mobile apps, logos and identities, outdoor campaigns, vehicle and textile graphics and a lot more. You can find more of my work on my freelance site at mindcontrolindustries.com, as well as more about who I am and what I can do. I'm happy to provide work samples, and if you have any questions or need any other information, just let me know :). Thanks, - Daniel Edwards
