Golang / Go Profile: Software Developer

Software Developer - Go, JavaScript (ES6+, Node, React), C, CSS, HTML5, Bash, Sysadmin

Sedona, Arizona, United States
Looking for: Permanent - Can work remotely

I've been self-employed for a long time in various ways, including on-site consulting, software development, and electronic product design. I'm used to handling whatever needs to be done completely by myself, solving whatever problems arise, and figuring out how to do anything that is needs to be included in the project. I'm very good at working alone, without anyone's help, and at the same time, I am a good communicator who is likes working things out with others, assuming they can interact with me at the same high level that I'm used to interacting with people.

Go is a very good programming language that has quickly become one of my favorites, and because it is new, I'm really interested in mastering it. But it is still just a tool out of all of the tools that I already know how to use, or will learn in the future. My real skills are operating on a higher level.

On of my top skills is focusing is on getting things done to make ideas real. I'm good at learning and using any technologies that are best for getting things working. I have learned programming languages, to the point of being productive on the job, in as little as two weeks. That was when I was 18 years old, and I'm much better at it now. I expect to be programming in Go at a top level very soon after I start my first Go programming job.

I habitually use a kind of agile development method that I've developed naturally as a result of working alone to complete projects. It is a system based on evaluating priorities on a continual basis and allocating time to whatever needs to be done right away, while being mindful of what needs to happen in the future. I use a "bulletin board" with sticky notes, but it is limited to about the size of A4 (8½ × 11") paper, which controls the amount of WIP (Work In Progress). This system keeps me efficient and productive, so I don't need attention from a manager, and allows me to fit into agile development teams easily.

As long as there is good communication happening, I'm very good at working alone, maintaining a clear focus on agreed-upon goals. I have good social skills and enjoy talking and writing, and what's more important is that I like to listen to what everyone has to say. I'm very good at communicating in English with people who speak English as a second language. I typically use very few idioms, idiomatic expressions, or phrasal verbs that are often problematic for non-native speakers.

What I look for
I've been away from programming professionally for some years, and am getting restarted. At the minimum, I need a good programming job, if not in Go, then something that can lead to it later, so I can have recent experience on my resume. (Actually, I'd rather just have a good job I can keep for a long time!) For now, I'm also studying the latest web development technologies, including JavaScript ES6+, Node.js, React.js and other tools, along with DevOps culture and agile development methodologies. I will probably fit best into a small company that understands the value of a diverse, creative group, or a somewhat larger company that has grown from, or has fully adopted DevOps culture. (That is, not just using DevOps tools and thinking they are DevOps.)
I am available for remote work only.
