Hello My name is Petr fom Moskov I am 15 years in IT: began as a software developer (PHP, Delphi, ASPX) and QA than became a senior developer, team lead and finally - project manager. I am not just familiar with things you mentioned in your offer, but I 10 years managed our remote teams in China, Russia, Canada and small team from India. During last 7 years, as a project manager, I communicate with clients, write functional specifications (using best UX practice), make prototypes using Axure and Visio and discuss tech implementation with our development staff. I setup QA and development process using 3 types of working environments: development, testing and training. I perfectly know all development stages and rebuilt PMBook and MFS methodology under needs on our company. I taught our tech writes how to create user guides easy and attractive for end users. I launched many different project from small web sites to desktop ERP systems. I can easy communicate and understand needs of people from all IT spheres, because have such background. My experience helps me to organize work efficient and smoothly. I am not afraid of emergencies and overtimes. I am looking for long-term projects because like to concentrate all effort on one company projects only. My rate is 45$/hr which can be slightly negotiated, because do not have feedback yet, but it is because I do not take all projects which are offered on oDesk. I am always glad to answer your questions and provide more details by Skype about completed projects and clients. Thank you and have a nice day!!!
Hello sir Thank you for providing such opportunity to help your team. I have more than 10 years experience as software developer (PHP, .Net, DB designing), team building and leading, project managing. I started my own team 6 year ago from 1 person me and now this team includes ~50 high qualified employees with very friendly bonds. 3-4 team members is a very good number to work effectively without any bureaucracy. The biggest problem of small teams is that one person may do the same time N projects as a developer, PM and QA simultaneously. It always leads to mess. I am sure that my experience can be beneficial for your team. Small advice: - separate duties: developers must do only development staff, QA - only test app, PM - only do management. - use Trello instead of Asana - it is free and easy. I think it is even more useful to use simple Google Doc - do not try organize everything - all team members must have good relationships, no slaves and gods I think that applying some improvements will take minimum time if your team wishes the same as you. My rate as PM is 50$/h and I can do all stuff related organizing your work for free, because if you and your team trust me then this process will be easy and take less time, otherwise I cannot help. Let have a free phone/Skype conversation and then decide about this job. Have a nice day!!!
