Dear What Am I Worth,

I am the special projects leader at a major e-commerce company's UK subsidiary, localising US-developed functionality and developing new functions for the UK Web site with a team of three.

My duties include programming, managing and mentoring the others in my group, and co-ordinating some new international co-operation efforts across the various production groups in our company.

I have been developing Internet technologies since 1993, working for most of that time in the San Francisco Bay Area as a consultant. I would usually first suggest technology plans to solve a client's needs and then lead the production of those solutions.

My experience includes work with Apache and Microsoft IIS Web servers, Oracle and Sybase databases, Sendmail, IRC server software and a number of multimedia serving platforms.

I can work comfortably on NT, Unix and Macintosh platforms. My strongest languages are Perl, Javascript, HTML and PL-SQL, but I have worked with Java, C and VBScript, including ASP with both VBScript and PerlScript.

My claim to odd-ball fame is that my educational background at the University of California at Berkeley was actually in anthropology and linguistics and some of the early Web sites I developed were in non-Latin scripts, so I am especially suited to work that includes internationalisation/localisation issues. My husband is a very homesick kiwi, and he wants to move back to Auckland in early to mid-2001.
