ABOUT ME

My name is Francis McGuire and my passion is software. I have been working in the IT sector for over 12 years. I love everything about computers, from system administration to software development. I also love creating great products. Nothing makes me prouder than seeing my projects enjoy their due success. The bulk of my development experience is with PHP5 web applications. I have experience developing back ends for complex web applications using technologies such as web services. I have also developed many dynamic front ends using jQuery. I am an expert with Apache based web servers and have configured complex web architectures using clustering technologies.

After years of managing product development from the inside, I have now transitioned to the role of product owner(manager). I’ve been responsible for managing up to 4 development and design teams simultaneously. I thrive on challenging problems and love seeing projects come to completion.

I have managed many projects and am skilled at estimating their cost and length. I can read, write and speak in both English and French. I am great at communicating with clients in order to provide them with a customized service.
