|Databases. From the design
of the tables scheme, to the analysis of business rules, to the
implementation of C++ code, to the interaction between the client and
the server, ...|

REASON FOR WANTING TO LEAVE CURRENT EMPLOYER: -
|Overseas, the demand for
coin-operated payphones is decreasing. Card-operated phones are becoming
the norm. Not all, but many of ITC's high-volume
exportable-products focus on coin-operated phones.
|To make matters worse,
capital-spending in Telecom is way down all over the world. In
my current VP position compensation -for the most part- is
based on commission. |
|I operate from small office near
Miami. ITC's Software Development Team is in rural New London, MN.
I lived in St. Cloud, MN, when I worked up there. I would like to
avoid living on isolated, winter-frozen, rural towns.|
PROFESSIONAL GOAL: -
|Assignments in Software
Development (Java, Visual J++, Visual C++, JDBC , COM , or
Client/Server Database projects -preferably ORACLE),
either as full-time permanent employee or as freelance developer
|I would also be open to
a Plant Managerial positions, in Manufacturing of
Telecommunications equipment, Testing, or Sales (International) of
electronic systems. |
|Domestic travel shall not exceed
30% (International 15%). However, long-term assignment overseas
with family relocation ( wife and 3-year old daughter) could be of my
interest (especially in Western Europe or Latin America). I
grew up in a fishing town. I like Florida, and would try to stay
in this State, however for the right opportunity I would relocate,
preferably in Southern US, or anywhere on the East Coast, or on the
PRESENT EMPLOYER: -
|I am currently 'Vice
President of International Sales'. My employer is ITC, Independent
Technologies Inc. (Omaha, NE). We develop test-sets, systems and
upgrades for coin-operated payphones (Berry Test Sets in New
London, MN, and Wintel in Orlando, FL, are divisions of ITC).
|Working for ITC as Director
of Software, I developed for SPRINT during 1998-2000 an Oracle
Client/Server application in Visual C++ and ODBC (it
administers 50,000 payphone Contracts, and calculates Commissions
due on 60,000 of Sprint's payphones). It is called
"C&C" (Contracts and Commissions).
|I have been three years with ITC.
Promoted to Vice President 13 months ago.
|ITC's website is at www.IndependentTech.com.
Using MS FrontPage I have created for my company's International
Operations a separate website linked to the previous one ( www.IndependenTEK.com
). Please, feel free to visit both.|

I do speak Spanish (vernacular), Portuguese
(semi-vernacular) and French (I lived in Paris).
|I am a US citizen (since 1976) who
grew up in Northwestern Spain, very close to the Portugal border.
|My Brazilian-born wife is an American
Artist (oil on canvas, feel free to visit her online gallery -which I
designed- at www.MonaXuna.com). She
does her painting at home. Therefore, she does not have problem with
a -possible- relocation.
|Our daughter Alana would be 3 years old next
Thanks Giving. She does not go to school yet, making relocation
