Crown IT Group

Project Manager/Tester/Developer

Go on to the web site to find out more about the company. CITG develops great web sites, and is now out of the shadow of sub-contracts. Please contact me to discuss opportunities further - I am sure we can help you create your next Drupal web site or a Facebook Application. My main responsibility at Crown IT Group is to manage the team and its projects according to the Agile principles. This invokes fast and efficient decision making, problem solving, and time management. I endorsed the use of Drupal CMS to speed up the development process. I am also responsible for overseeing custom web site development. We use the Code Igniter framework for that. I encourage heavy use of Open Source Software and Solutions during the developing process, to make sure no laws are broken. I myself am a strong believer in an Open Source nature of Information Technologies, and try to bring the same notion to my work. The work is done form home, over the Internet, and the team currently consists of 5 people.

DeepArtDesign

Junior HR/PR manager, SEM, Information Architect, Translator

Comprehensive database management, hardware installation and maintenance, software installation and configuration, computer related problem solving, Web design project management, search engine optimization management, web site UI consulting, public relations, brand development, web site traffic growth, translation of web site content, writing and translating web site content, advertising revenue, new development deals generation. As a web consultant I made sure the web sites our team created were easily usable and accessible. This involved all kinds of tests I had to performed, even accessing our web sites with my eyes closed. As a team leader I was to make sure the work flow is optimized, the resources are spread accordingly, and the team itself is interconnected. I had endorsed daily meetings at the office, implementation of new technologies, such as the use of Content Management Systems and Zend Framework for custom PHP development. I consider the use of CMS when there were only a few of them, as well, as well as using a PHP framework to optimize the development process an achievement of my own, and the DeepArtDesign as a whole, as a result.

OxygenWorks

HR/PR manager, SEM, Information Architect

Web design project management, search engine optimization management, web site UI consulting, public relations, brand development, web site traffic growth, translation of web site content, writing and translating web site content, advertising revenue, new development deals generation. As a web design project manager at OxygenWorks I was responsible for managing various projects, which were mainly assignments from clients overseas. My team (and myself as a leader) was responsible for creating web sites from the ground up. This included creating a design mock up, discussing it with clients (I was responsible for all the communication), getting the feedback back to my team, and making sure we, as a team, acted upon it to a 100% of client satisfaction. My team consisted of approximately 10 IT-specialist, administrators, designers, and programmers. Back in 2002 we were the only team in Nikolaev (to my knowledge) that had an organized team that worked for clients overseas. I take personal pride in getting together a group of people that worked as one, utilizing HTML and Flash. Flash, at that time, was something new. The work was a done from home. As a search engine optimization specialist, I personally made sure different modifications to the code were made, in order to make sure the sites we make get a good search engine position. This required HTML coding experience, Photoshop mock ups to HTML transaction, CSS, and DHTML programming, which I had to take on during the course of a few projects. As a participant of an International Scientific Conference titled "Higher Education Perspectives: The Role Of Inter University Consortia", presented a later published speech entitled "My Experience In The United States: What Makes A University Better", wrote an article telling my respected audience about the life of people with disabilities in the United Stated, particularly students.
