Sharepoint Consultant at Clalit Health Services @ Israel
Development Consultant, Project manager and QA engineer
Los Angeles Metropolitan Area
My DevOps expertise include server automation skills (primarily Chef), using containers (Docker, deis.io deployments), knowledges in queueing background jobs with sidekiq-pro and Redis, working with a wide range of Amazon AWS services in production, setting up sharding for Solr and Elasticsearch, Apache Kafka, Zookeeper. I am familiar with popular NoSQL (Redis, MongoDB, Druid) and relational databases (MySQL, Postgres). Regarding Postgres, few years ago I've developed plugin which adds new data type 'set', it's accessible here: https://github.com/kristisexyjones1/pgset (written in C and PL/pgSQL).
Over the past 4 years I have solid front-end experience, in particular with AngularJS, Backbone, React JS and Express. I am familiar to build one-page web applications with such frameworks and build RESTful API for it, always follow best practices of development and architecture, and know when to apply them. I am aware of CSS pre-processors (SASS/SCSS), HAML/jade, CoffeeScript, can work on any UI as Twitter Bootstrap or converting PSD into HTML on my own or even handle more complex stuff.
Talking about tests, I am not a real fan of BDD, regardless I broadly used it in several projects in the past. TDD is just enough in most of the cases. For testing ambiguous front-end I prefer RSpec+Capybara+Selenium bundle over jasmine.
Among other languages I am familiar to Java, Python, C/C++, PL/pgSQL, PHP.
I speak fluent verbal English, Russian and basic Japanese.
I am transgender person (MTF).
My personal qualities can be characterized as confident, reliable, enthusiastic, passionate to challenging tasks.
