Jim is a rare individual with extensive knowledge and understanding in advanced computer systems and a fantastic work ethic. He actively searches for ways to make product improvements, is self motivated, highly intelligent and would make an excellent addition to any team. I welcome any opportunity to work with him again.
Jim is a developer who is highly skilled both at crafting elegant solutions to short-term development needs, and at charting long-term development strategies. When he worked with us on a short-term development project for an existing software product, he made us aware of all of our possible courses of development, and gave us a simple but precise understanding of the implications of each path for future development. His ability to to make technical development intuitive brought stability and organization to the development process, and allowed us to make short-term decisions with confidence since we were aware of the long-term implications.
When we first approached Jim, the scope of our project was not well defined. Jim helped mitigate this risk with a fluid specification process that led to an optimal outcome in a short time frame. After the project was specified, Jim’s aptitude with the Bloomberg API allowed us to accomplish much more than we originally anticipated given our time and budget constraints. Jim's diligence and strong work ethic are clear assets.
Jim is professional and easy to work with. He communicates complex, technical solutions, in a simple and understandable way, which helped us identify the best go-forward option. With tight deadlines, Jim consistently exceeded our expectations with respect to both quality and timeliness. He is one of our preferred developers.
Two things impressed me about Jim during our project - versatility and competence. Our IT department presented some additional requirements at the last minute, and Jim was able to adapt the project to meet those needs while remaining within the budget. As for competence, he met every deadline, and he was able to communicate with both our IT department and management. We are pleased with his work.
