I’m looking for work. Here’s my resume.
I’m passionate about doing things that matter, and doing them well. I’m a leader with experience. I lead by serving my business, bosses, and coworkers. I solve problems efficiently and I always add value.
I’m a pro at pretty much any back-end, devops, sysadmin work. I have a strong preference for using Free/Libre/Open Source Software (and contributing back upstream often). Most of my career has been websites: PHP, Python, Java, Perl and the like. I’m experienced with SQL and NoSQL databases. I can do front-end work except graphic design. Most recently I’ve been coding a lot with PHP (specifically, Symfony2), AWS APIs and MongoDB.
I would love to do work right now which involved cloud automation, specifically, Amazon Web Services infrastructure provisioning. I could easily automate the setup for a very robust, high-traffic web/mobile service. I’ve had years of experience with AWS and want to work with it more. But that’s just one idea—I’m pretty flexible.
I love learning new tools and tech. I do so quickly, and I’m generally at my best (performance and happiness) while I’m learning. So if I’m not already versed in whatever tech your business needs to succeed, don’t worry, I will be soon.
