If this is you, we really should get in touch.
I occasionally become available for consulting/contracting work, and I bring:
- Over 20 years experience as a professional software developer on frontend and backend technologies.
- Almost 15 years in the mobile software space — I worked on apps before the first iPhone was released
- Almost a decade experience as a a native Android app developer.
Clients consistently refer to me as versatile, reliable and extremely easy to work with.
What are the main reasons for having me on your team?
Bring me on to help you with fullstack development in Kotlin and/or Typescript (or other technologies, if I have some time to ramp up in the technology stack first).
I can also build new Android native apps, or improve and maintain existing Android projects.
Along the way I will help you make well-informed tradeoffs between software features, development time, user experience, project scheduling/risks and other factors.
What else will I bring to the table?
I originally come from a background of working in system architecture, web frontend development and enterprise backend development. All that experience enables me to see the big picture and it informs the work I do for you.
I also have foundational skills in project management, UI/UX design work, marketing and product development. While I can do basic work in these fields myself, what you really want is to have me, as a software developer, collaborate with specialists in these disciplines: then we’ll both truly shine.
