SEEKING FREELANCER - Remote only

iOS/Cocoa Touch

I'm an indie developer, and my workload is outpacing number of hours in the day. I'm looking for a freelance iOS developer to help take some of the work off my shoulders. I'd like to do a set number of hours per month, not too many so a nights-and-weekends deal would be okay.

Experience in iPad and iPhone development, Cocoa Touch, UIKit, Xcode, and so on. I need someone who is experienced enough to have shipped an app, either direct to the app store, or to a client. You need to be able to hit the ground running. Also, I use Git for VCS and Lighthouse for bug tracking, so experience with either of those is a plus. Experience consuming web services via REST, and experience parsing JSON and XML responses is a big plus as well.

Please email your experience (and a resume if you'd like) to info@pocketsevens.net. Just tell me about yourself and the work you've done. Links are helpful too. Thanks!

SEEKING WORK I am part of a confederation of developers, currently there are 7 of us. We do freelance work; some of us are based in Florida other in Boston and still others are out in the valley. We are a distributed team of top tier web and mobile specialist and we are always looking for new and interesting projects to work on. Many of us have over a decade of working relationship with each other, so if you need a single freelancer or a team we can scale. We have done projects for a split of equity and cash before (if we like the product) and we are very good at incubating teams for start-ups and planting a key technical person for those clients. We have 5 successful exits between our members, so we are veterans and have experience in taking a project from prototype to helping grow a large in-house technical department.

SEEKING FREELANCER - San Francisco CA USA - (Remote welcome, PHP/javascript Developer)

PHP/javascript Programmer Needed For Bootstrapped Dating App Project. http://mantrackr.com/

Exciting opportunity for PHP/javascript programmer wanting to be part of a wildly lucrative gay dating space.

We have an awesome and disruptive gay dating web app that is soft launching this month.

Our app is built using PHP/mysql, jQuery, HTML, CSS and will be hosted on Dotcloud.

We are two forward thinking brothers, one of whom is very creative while the other is very geeky. We are very proud of our app and we believe in infusing the best of web 2.0/3.0 into it.

Our current programmer is based in Romania, he is very good and we have a great relationship, however we would prefer to work with someone locally after the launch.

We are looking for a talented PHP/javascript programmer with vision to grow with us as we capture a piece of the huge gay dating/hook-up market. Specifically, we are looking for a programmer who seeks a flexible part time but long term position to make changes with respect to functionality and layout. Skills required: PHP, javascript, HTML5, CSS, mysql, mongoDB, node.js.

In terms of payment we would like to a have trial period first to see if there is a fit, then offer a percentage of revenue that is fair and makes sense to all since we are bootstrapping and thus cannot offer a salary at this point. We realize this isn’t ideal for everyone but we are seriously looking for someone who sees the potential of the dating market and of our app, and would desire to grow with us.

Future changes to the site will include the following:

Layout responsive/fluid layout (e.g. Trover.com)

Messaging real time chat (node.js, mongoDB, and audio for new incoming messages)

Modern modernizer.js to detect modern browers HTML5 (geolocation and localStorage)

Premium Features three way chat instant chat from profile shouts payment module

SEEKING WORK (Freelance only) – London, UK

I’m an Oxford graduate moving to London (from Ireland) in three weeks. I offer full stack web development using Ruby/Rails and help with online marketing (SEO, conversion optimisation, Adwords, Facebook advertising). As of this week I've written half of my first draft of a book on Rails best practices, and I will apply these vigorously in my work (unless it makes business sense not to).

I consider myself a Marketing-Driven-Developer because the majority of programming I do is intended to improve conversions. Some recent examples:

- A 15-step client management state machine, sending iteratively engineered emails to clients at key stages, the net result improving conversions nearly 400%.

- Automatically generating arrays of keywords from data and using these to power Google Adwords campaigns.

- AB-Testing design elements to improve conversions. Examples include internal remarketing pop-ups, advantages spiels, “add to cart” button placements (Top or bottom of the page? Both.), checkout button design (A big green “buy now” button lost to a grey and bland “checkout” button. A surprising result, but that’s exactly why you should be AB-Testing.).

- Improving organic traffic three-fold by generating hundreds of unique pages using existing data and adding SEO keywords (determined through analytics data) to the URL, title, a H1 tag, the first P, a sidebar (in bold), the meta-description, and to internal links to that page elsewhere on the website . I also swear by sitemaps, which ought to be automatically generated on each build.

I’ve studied works on advertising and influence and, if requested, I can offer some help with advertising copywriting. Briefly, I like to bombard users with long lists of advantages related to their core desires, use visually emotive vocabulary, then, once the users desire a product, apply influence techniques such as building trust by demonstrating social proof (testimonials, stories of other users, Facebook likes), and creating believable scarcity.

Work Samples:

www.oxbridgenotes.co.uk (I've worked mainly on this for the last year and a half) - A marketplace for students to buy and sell their notes online. I am the owner of the website and all development, design and copy is my own. I run an assortment of Adwords and Facebook advertising campaigns.

www.bolivianexpress.org - CMS on front, with a applicant management system behind the scenes for managing intern hires (Bolivian Express's business). Sole developer.

www.hiredhelp.ie - Directory for babysitters, housekeepers and so on. Lead developer.

www.westernlasserclinic.ie - I built the website (albeit with a nice ThemeForest template), and I edited the copy and run their Adwords campaign in the competitive “laser eye surgery” domain. According to the owner "they've never been busier” after my help, despite the recession. (Full disclosure: I’m related.)

www.secondconscience.ie - Personal project based on Benjamin Franklin’s behavioral modification technique.

www.findgrinds.ie - Teething project. Directory for private tutors.

Contact: jack.kinsellahatgmail.com (remove “hat”)


I've just put up a consulting website. Although some pages are still blank, the website should be finished by 6 September.
