  1. 1. Robert Wolfe 1919-3400 Riverspray Mississauga ON L4Y 3M5 Cel (647) 407-9766 Fax (866) 475-8559 e-mail: web: Employment With 19 years of experience in a wide variety of positions and roles, from scientific Objective programmer to managing consultant, I find myself at a point in my career where I am looking for new challenges. I have spent much of my time in the industry working with Oracle’s products beginning with Oracle 5 and continuing to the current flagship - Oracle 10g and so it is my intention to find a hands-on technical position with an organization that would benefit from the combination of skills which I have acquired over the years. My technical skills are in the design and development of large-scale database systems. I have used these skills in roles as diverse as development DBA, operational support analyst, technical team member and architect. This has given me the chance to do such specific tasks as physically laying out tables, creating database triggers, developing screens using Oracle Forms and designing and developing complex data warehouses including creating ETL processes using custom written software in various languages as well as using Oracle Warehouse Builder. I have extensive experience in the consulting industry that has allowed me to gain valuable skills in “client-facing” roles. This lets me be effective at gathering requirements from business users and then synthesizing and presenting them back to the business in a way that explains what are sometimes highly technical solutions. This same experience gave me the tools to take those same requirements and turn them into effective technical architectures and specifications which can then be used by developers, including myself, to fulfill the expressed needs of the business.
