In my 15 year career I have designed and developed hundreds of websites and I have maintained dozens of CMS systems and have installed, updated and maintained their underlying hardware infrastructure. In the case of my role on work for Aston Martin, I co-authored their own custom CMS. I am adept with Google Analytics and their entire software suite, and I currently manage Google Analytics on over 50 websites and regularly mine and prepare reports based on that analytic data. I have been using the entirety of the Adobe Creative Suite since the ’90s, including but not limited to Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, and Flash.
In my current role as Director of Technology at Harbor House, and throughout my career, I have been responsible for many IT tasks as well. I have updated and maintained their 20 or so Mac and Windows workstations, managed their Exchange Email Server and Ubuntu File Server, managed their intranet network and integrated it with their internet presence, and have even managed their enterprise grade printers.
What separates me from the pack? Communication. Every developer or IT tech to apply will likely have mastery of the required skill set. For my part, I’ve been developing in PHP and JS specifically for WordPress for almost a decade and a myriad of other technologies, frameworks, and languages for 20 years. However, the most important lessons I’ve learned in that time have not been technical. They have all been related to better communicating ideas and positions to team members, being a more proficient leader, and learning to better understand and coordinate the needs of the client, the owners, and the development teams. I have used the communication skills at the last 3 jobs I’ve had to rise from developer positions to leadership positions and have spent the last 6-7 years in more of a leadership role. While I still maintain my passion for programming and IT, I have also grown into quite a passion for teaching others to work better.
As a designer, programmer, and IT tech with 15 years of professional experience building software for dozens of platforms, not the least of which include Windows, Mac, Linux, the web, iOS and Android, I believe I could make a valuable contribution to furthering your company’s success and goals. My career includes several years exclusively with WordPress and web publishing websites which have collectively processed millions of visitors and tens of millions of page views.
My career highlights include:
- Full Stack Developer
- Lead Developer
- Project Manager
- Director of Technology
I have been “around the block” in the Northern Michigan web development scene and often the roles of programmer and IT tech have been merged. I think this makes me an even more ideal candidate considering I have direct experience with combining hardware, network and software to complete almost any project. I think this job would be an ideal fit for me too! While I am not a teacher, I am an education enthusiast and avid reader and would jump at the opportunity to bring my skill set to an education setting.
