Andy Waschick's Summary
I have many years of experience in being a creative problem solver with technology.
In my profile, you can see an extensive history of involvement with small companies. These jobs demanded an ability to improvise, adapt, and overcome roadblocks by creatively using existing tools and infrastructure in new ways. I find this kind of work very gratifying.
One of the best examples of this is in my recent role as IT Director. Through the integration of off-the-shelf tools and outsourced services with a suite of bespoke automation systems, the company has consistently generated a very high ratio of revenue per employee (around $430,000, in 2012). With the right kind of support, I believe I can deliver this level of efficiency to many other organizations.
And, while my work as IT Director has been rewarding, I have recently discovered a new niche that my capabilities more appropriately fall into: DevOps Administrator. This is a role which combines my knowledge of development and systems administration with my love of improvisation in problem solving. The end result is a streamlined process of developing web sites and other software projects. This kind of facilitation, applied to a team of programmers, will increase the team's efficiency and capability to deliver on-time for clients. I am uniquely qualified to be that facilitator.
I'm looking for business relationships with fun, interesting companies; companies which value employees' contributions and share in the rewards that come from hard work.
