If you’re interested in hiring me for anything, short or long, email me. I’ll normally respond within 12 hours. [⚠️ September 2021 status: I may take longer to respond as I’m currently on holiday, cycling through New Zealand’s north island on my recumbent tricycle. It’s a beautiful place.]
I am an expert generalist software developer. My particular favourite topics are Rust, the web in general, performance, usability and accessibility.
I’ve been using Rust since 2013 and am expert in it. I was a very early mover in applying Rust to the web space, pioneering a number of novel approaches to handling the web that played to Rust’s strengths, though I’m not much involved in web framework/library implementation at this time. More recently I’ve been using Rust in various web and non‐web things.
I offer my services world‐wide remotely over the internet, and in person for Australia and New Zealand.
For on‐site visits, I’m currently willing to travel to Melbourne [I live in a tiny country town in western Victoria called Navarre.] for a minimum of a day’s work (eight hours), or to just about anywhere in Australia or New Zealand for at least a week’s worth of work (forty hours). [Naturally all this depends on being able to get to you, what with COVID lockdowns and all.]
(Once international travel gets going again, I’ll be open to negotiating on‐site visits in other countries, but it’ll be at a much higher rate.)
My standard rate is AUD100 per hour for Australia [GST not applicable, I am not currently registered for GST.] and New Zealand, and USD100 per hour for the rest of the world.
These rates are purely indicative; I reserve the right to vary my rates by client.
I used to operate on the Codementor platform. Here are some of the reviews I received:
Interested? Email me and let’s talk.
If you’re interested in hiring me for anything, drop me a line and we can talk. If you’d like a voice or video call, I’m readily available on Skype, Zoom, Telegram and the regular old phone system (Australian numbers only); mention a preference and your contact details for that platform and we can connect that way too.
