Please lead with either SEEKING WORK or SEEKING FREELANCER, your location and whether remote work is a possibility.

SEEKING FREELANCER - SF, CA / Remote Possible but likely it will have to be in the US at this point. We pay competitive market consulting rates.

A Different Engine is looking to expand our contractor portfolio.


A Different Engine is an interactive agency which builds advanced media applications for our clients. We've been focused on TV applications on Connected TV's (Yahoo Widgets, Samsung SmartHub) and Over the Top Boxes (Roku/Boxee/GoogleTV) but have been moving to doing more mobile work (particularly on tablets) and some traditional web (most of our web work is for web services which power out TV and tablet apps instead of consumer facing web apps). This is a bespoke design and development business. We've worked with CBS/NBC/Comcast/The UFC and others.

WHAT WE NEED We currently have a few inbound projects which may exceed our current capacity so we're looking for a few contract folks to help bridge the gap. We tend to prefer local folks (SF, NY and we have some folks in Cleveland) though we will go remote for the right fit.

PRIMARY TECHNOLOGIES Our two most pressing needs are for frontend Javascript folks and Android Folks. On the JS side we do full Rich Internet Apps on TVs our main libraries are Jquery and Backbone. On the Android side we actually have a few inbound tablet projects and may have some work on the new GoogleTV platform (V2).

When we do backend work we like Rails, we've played with Node/Redis/MongoDB - we think this may be a good stack for some projects, and we sometimes have to deliver apps in PHP. We're really technology agnostic. Because we do bespoke, project based development we can't afford to be tied too much to specific technologies. We use the best tool for the job when we can, and sometimes we use the technology we're told to use. Thats the nature of our business.

You can reach me at mike AT a different engine DOT com with questions or even just to chat ;-)


We have a position open in our small software/web services company. Combo work from home/come in to office (Roma Norte/Condesa area). We're expanding our web services and want someone keen to learn: we're flexible with what tools you choose to use but you should have a decent grounding in Javascript/CSS/PHP(or similar)/MySQL. Good english is important. We really love our industry and are the current leading service provider in our field, working with top clients internationally. Email us at hire.me.mex@gmail.com for info.


I'm a bit of unicorn: a designer and a developer[0].

I practice responsive front-end design and implementation and enjoy using Sass, Coffeescript, and Mustache. I have a graduate design degree in architecture.

I have over four years Ruby on Rails experience; I enjoy Sinatra and have developed my own miniature Ruby web application library[1]. I have an undergraduate degree in physics.

Budget is not established but is flexible. Expected initial duration is 3-4 weeks. Engagement will be limited after that, but potential for limited long-term help is there.



We have already done a lot of experimenting/testing with Drupal, but need someone with D7 experience to make sure we're doing things the right way.


A Drupal consultant to help us customize a Drupal installation profile to be used to power upwards of 50 individual Drupal sites.

We need to work together to define our needs and translate them into a Drupal system. In addition to creating a customized base Drupal installation, you will help us create a clear process for systems administration. Experience with Drush is critical.

In addition to programming, configuration, and other technical tasks, we really need you to to help us better understand Drupal best-practices and educate us on a few areaas. We will be creating a system that will empower close to 100 web content contributors, but will be maintained/adminted by a relatively small (and already very busy!) staff. We need to get things right from the onset to offset wasted time fixing things at scale.

Contact: scott.sharp@case.edu

Please do not reply if you do not have experience with Drupal 7 (multisite installs), Drush, or do not wish to have very active communications during the project.

SEEKING WORK: Mumbai, Relocate? Yes, Remote? Yes

I quit my job in Apr-2010, in the Middle East to work full time on my compiler(s) for Market Research Survey and Data Processing. The compiler is open source and hosted here:



The compiler is written in C++, Yacc.

I developed the ERP system for the company I worked in Dubai (TNS MEA) - Asp.Net/C#/SQL Server. Comfortable with Postgres.

I should be able to program in any language that you ask me to, although I will need a little time to get warmed up (have been reading up on Lisp, Python and Ruby).


Live demo of a survey: (click "en" for English instructions)

Project website: http://qscript.in

Why? :

I pitched to a few companies in India, but they are not interested in getting into the products space.

Unfortunately, I have run out of time (I am 33), and have decided to freeze the project for now and get a job as I have to pay my investors back.

The negative Karma on my username, is because of a "smart" comment I made, when Wufoo was bought out by SurveyMonkey (I was just happy and overjoyed, that a company in the MR related field made it).

SEEKING WORK - Argentina

My name is Victor, a 28 year old developer living in Argentina.




* JavaScript

* HTML 4 and 5

* C#

* Unix administration

Secondary skills:

* Java

* DirectX and OpenGL


I've been programming LAMP based sites for about 9 years and I'm currently working for a very large mobile games developer for 4 years now.

My work in there consists mostly of the following:

* Integrating customer billing for mobile sites, both North American and South American (closed carrier APIs and gateways such as Paypal and Amazon Payments)

* On-call support outside office hours (in which I solve issues with firewalls, programming mistakes made by developers, etc)

* Shop development and design. Basically, these are websites that display content and allow purchases with the aforementioned billing methods.I also focus on improving our custom, in-house developed framework that drives most of the websites.

Previous endeavors include:

* PHP programming and Unix administration at a large South American portal (from 2002 to 2005). It proved to be immensely informative, since we had to deal with a site that gathered several hundred thousands pageviews per day.

* PHP programming and database administration at a credit-report company (from 2005 to 2007). This also proved to be quite helpful, as I had to deal with an ill-maintained IBM Informix database, with poor normalization along with hundreds of millions of rows.

You can contact me at ar_freelancer AT yahoo.com

Thanks for the opportunity!

Buena suerte en tu búsqueda, Víctor!

SEEKING FREELANCER - Mountain View, CA / Remote

Fitocracy is seeking an iOS freelancer to help build our iPhone app.


Fitocracy is a fitness social network that turns working out into a more addictive, social experience. We take all the addictive qualities of games like Everquest and World of Warcraft and use them to motivate users to exercise more. Fitocracy users earn XP, level up, unlock achievements, and beat quests, all by tracking their workouts. Our vision is to turn fitness into the most addictive, social experience possible.

We've bootstrapped our way to over 110,000 users in 8 months. We're projected to surpass 200k users by the end of 2011/early 2012. Our users spent over 5.3 million minutes on site last month.

We are part of Dave McClure's 500 Startups and just raised an angel round so we're ready to add some fuel to the fire.


We've been skyrocketing in popularity because we've hit on a pretty powerful idea: getting out of shape geeks fit by offering them something they already know - video game thinking. We've been featured on XKCD (http://xkcd.com/940/), Penny Arcade (http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2011/10/28), and CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/14/health/video-gamers-bodybuilde...).

Our team is small and nimble - decisions are made quickly and we stay incredibly well connected to our community. You'll have a huge impact on a lot of users from the first day our mobile app is released.


We're looking for an iOS developer who can take full ownership of building our iPhone app. You'll be working closely with the team to ensure the app jives with the rest of the Fitocracy product, collect user feedback, and iterate as necessary.

You should have experience shipping awesome iOS apps that actually get used. You should have an obsession with providing an awesome user experience. You ideally work well with teams and communicate quickly and constantly.


We're offering highly competitive rates for this project. There's also the good chance we'll hire you full time if you kick ass and work well with the team.

I'd recommend sending me a message before someone considers taking this on.

That good, huh?


I'm surprised my post got downvoted when I'm trying to prevent HN Freelancers from investing a significant portion of their time to be left out to dry, as I've done with this client.

Yes. But what if the problem was actually with you. Why email you in the first place? Just tell us your story in few short lines, and everyone will judge from his perspective. The other party can have the ability to reply, too.

I've done a fair bit of development work for vitacoco, and they've not only been great to work with, they've also paid me for the work.

I can honestly recommend working with them.

$$ hope no one has a problem with me mentioning my site


There's some contracting/freelancing jobs on there. I got an email today from soneone who has already found work through the site. It's still a work in progress, but improving all the time. Happy job hunting :)

I'm a big fan of jobstractor. We actually had a success from the other end, somebody found our job posting through the tractor.

Keep up the great work!

What the ... what kind of site is that, actually? One of the "job postings" is a Biblical quote. (http://www.tweetdeck.com/twitter/SHoffman9213/~fRy55)

Seriously, that's just irritating.

Sorry for the irritation, as I say it's a work in progress including filtering some things which shouldn't be in there.

Sure, but my question stands - I honestly don't know what it is I'm looking at. Are you just filtering Twitter feeds for people who might want work done and putting some geographical search information onto the posts? Aside from the fact that I honestly don't know what that Biblical quote is doing there (I looked for likely keywords), it's by no means obvious that this is what you're doing. If you're serious enough about it to post it here to gain some eyeballs, then you should probably also indicate what it is you've done.

If I were to tweet something vaguely job-related, and if somebody then got in touch with me because they thought I'd posted a job on your site, I think I'd be somewhat ... taken aback, I guess.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Remote/ Pittsburgh, PA

Need a freelancer for http://www.mockuptiger.com

Port to Ipad. Someone with good experience converting html+javascript app to Ipad. Please email nilesh@mockuptiger.com


I'm a designer, but I can't code. I'm looking for someone who can code a template for a popular CMS. I'll do the design, and you can code. I'll provide more guidance if you contact me, with your skillset and experience. If you don't have much experience, don't worry! Just tell me what you're good at.

Estimated time required: a few weeks Estimated cost: a few hundred dollars

Contact: jimduggan -- yahoo.com

Correlating the estimated time required and estimated cost, you are basically paying $100/week. I assume 5 days / week and 5 hours / day. That's $4/hour. Serious?

I wonder how much he charges for design work? Cause if it's $4/hour I've got some stuff he can do.

I don't live in the West, and I don't make as much money as you do. Is that wrong? There are plenty of people using HN that are not reflections of yourself.

I'm also not assuming that this will be worked on full-time. If it was, I wouldn't expect it to take more than about a week.

I don't think where you live matters. I live in country with a Per Capita 15 times lower than the USA but charge something per hour which is related only to my experience and knowledge.

I'll admit I was trying to be funny with that, but honestly if you are any good at what you do I (and probably others) would be interested in your work, and probably wouldn't care where you live.

In that respect even if you don't live in the west, I'm sure anyone you would want to work with you on a project charges more than $4/hr part time or not, regardless of where they live.
