Providing independent contracting services.
I created Rushmada to allow me to use my 20 years of experience to help companies of all sizes from my own company. Rushmada is not a staffing agency. Currently Rushmada is just me, Stephen Rushton. I am an independent contractor.
My whole career, I have been thrown into situations where I have had to learn new technologies and businesses on the fly while in the middle of deadlines. I have worked in small, medium, and large companies in my career, and I understand the different dynamics each of those entail.
I am a jack of all trades. Some may say that makes me a master of none, but not in technology. If you are not constantly learning new things, then you will be stuck in the technology where you are a master, but the world has left you behind.
I deliver. I fight hard to manage scope and focus on what is truly needed. Whether this is the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) or working with business stakeholders to priority which features actually have the best return on investment.
I am not a PowerPoint Architect. I am a Technical Architect. What is the difference? A PowerPoint Architect typically chooses between different Commercial Enterprise Solutions and designs high level how they will interact, but does not typically do any hands on coding or configuration to make this happen. I like to get my hands dirty. I do not want to just go to meetings and generate documents and presentations.
I am not a Web Designer. I am very interested in the design of Web Application and the usability of the application. I am not the person to make you web page beautiful.
I am not Management. I have had different management roles in my career, but this is not where my passion is. However I do like mentoring and leading people, but I hate the day to day administrative responsibilities that typically come with being an manager.
I am not a Project Manager. I have done project management in my career, but this is not where my passion is.
