I am a Systems Engineer and developer with more than 6 years of experience. I started my career at a small web development studio that outsourced engineers to work at a large agency in upper NYC. I applied with zero background experience and only a couple of semesters in engineering, I was hired after completing a couple of Java programming exercises correctly. Whether I was hired with very low expectations to do the easiest, parts or to actually learn develop something is unclear up to this day. What is clear is the results a few months there had in me.
Loving the design of the iPhone 6, I decided to learn Objective-C. And that was when software development took a turn for me. It was now some code in a very different subset of an old classic: C. It was the best to learn memory management, core processes, and databases in such a low level language. And iOS apps have a natural characteristic: being beautiful. Their design is just so amazing that you feel happy to use the app. You feel happy to develop it. It just works. And that was the day, I started designing software. And, to this day, I still do. My biggest achievement from that stage is a really cool iOS game!
The reason why I worked on different technologies is because I love working on the projects I like, the ones that I like the most, the ones that have an amazing design. Or that are projects with the people who have the best ideas. And those are almost never easy to get. They are usually scattered around. And so, comes remote work! Remoting has been the best experience ever since I get to work where I am the most comfortable, the happiest and the most creative. That means doing the best work, and being around the place you are happy in.
All that I mentioned before is the reason I am applying to TopTotal’s App Programmers Network. Because I want to freely work remotely without having to do the ugly part: getting the best clients and projects. The freelancing world is filled with a ton of low quality work and developers! Filtering through all the data takes time that I would like to spend on development. I want to be remote, and to develop the best projects ever. If you have one, feel free contact me!
