Hi, my name is James Mitchell
I have been working in the information technology space for over 20 years. And while I have not had the most glamorous career or the most lucrative contracts with high rolling clients and employers, I can say that I have fought hard to get to where I am today.
Hired to solve problems, paid well to do it quickly, and gain a respectable reputation for doing it right .. the first time.
I currently work for Ericsson in their Duluth, GA office and I absolutely love it. I have been offered a lot of other jobs since joining Ericsson .. some with more money .. some with better benefits, but I just love working here. The people are great, the technologies we use are relevant, and the commute .. you can't beat a 20 to 25 minute one-way commute in a city as large as Atlanta, GA!
However, that does not preclude me from helping other clients that may need my expertise. One great example of that is I am currently helping another client find stability and performance from their online (mostly) api-driven site. They had been seeing a steady increase of client traffic, paralleled with an exponentially slower search capability. over the last few years and had recently hit a bottleneck they just couldn't get past. And so .. ♬ .. I came in like a wrecking ball!! ♬. But .. in a good way.
Within 6 hours I was able to hunt down the issues with their site and the next morning they made the suggested changes and the site performance was increased by 466%. The main search query before my changes was taking several minutes and after my change, they were nearly instant .. milliseconds.
