I built all of my first startup's product Pretty Graph using Rails, jQuery and R. It's a web app for data visualisation. You can try it here - https://app.prettygraph.com. I also manage all the hosting and maintenance.
I've learnt everything about programming and building products from hands-on experience. I am very good at picking up new technologies and like working with other people.
If that sounds good, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm interested in distributed systems and big data. Some of the things I've been doing recently: testing multiple currency support at a betting exchange, building analytics widgets backed by a disco cluster for a large online publisher, working on an implementation of the telehash protocol.
I've also worked in search [1,2], distributed systems , testing [4,5] and p2p systems [6,7,8]. I have a strong background in math (real analysis, probability, discrete maths) and computer science (randomized algorithms, AI / epistemic logic, machine learning).
I've worked professionally with python, ocaml and erlang. I would also like to pick up clojure.
Has anyone successfully booked work from this thread in the past? Seems to be a ton of freelancers but not a lot of demand for freelancers on this thread? Are there other places online where we should promote this thread since it must be a pretty solid list of top tier engineers looking to book work?

SEEKING WORK - remote (potentially on-site) NYC
2 person development team. A few years of experience working for a company with a small team that provides software development solutions (mostly web, but a couple mobile apps) to clients in the USA and Canada. Now we are on our own.
We are interested in doing the best possible work and leaving you satisfied since we think referrals from past clients are the best source of new opportunities and we want to build a reputation.
We believe in code maintainability, reducing waste, good communication skills and living up to our word.
Send us an email and we could set up an interview via Skype or whatever is most convenient for you so that you can get to know us and see if we would be a good fit.
- PHP development. I'd like to do more 5.3 but I'm more weathered in 5.2 due to client demands. Also Codeigniter. But I can pick up most things.
If you're really desperate, I can hit things with Perl too.
I use Mercurial for source control but I'm comfortable with git also. I'm familiar with most modern day practices & processes. I won't say I've been overly-exposed to something like Agile or TDD for instance because I haven't. But I get these things and I learn quick :)
I have worked on pretty much every kind of site imaginable now and would estimate I've built an area of internet roughly the size of Ireland.
SEEKING WORK - Remote, with occasional on-site days in Boston, NYC, or general area.
I've worked on lots of stuff, including Lisp compilers, robotics, embedded systems and video games. These days, I specialize in quick-turnaround Rails projects, helping companies get new features in front of users.
I also do some EC2 and Android projects, and I'm an enthusiastic—but amateur—copywriter. Email in profile. No recruiters please, unless you're able to disclose the name of your client.
My domain expertise lies in Document Management and Record Management systems, I have also worked on some of the most complicated Lotus Domino systems in the world (network of 300+ servers, 30K users,...) where I have learned how NOT TO design and handle NoSQL data AND how TO design and handle NoSQL data properly. I have experience moving key/value data around, migrating data, etc.
If you are looking for a web developer I can get stuff done. But I have the most experience designing, implementing and troubleshooting NoSQL based systems.
I may not be the smartest or the most knowledgeable guy around. But I pride myself on getting shit done. Sometimes it takes awhile, but if you set me an objective I will either reach it or give you conclusions on why it cannot be done, by me or in general.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Austin, TX and Pittsburgh, PA; Remote OK
We're currently hiring freelancers to do some low-skilled work. This isn't really programming related, so it's better suited for a person who is computer savvy but not formally trained. It involves watching a lot of TV, basic competency with Paint or Skitch, and data entry. Perfect for a college student looking to pick up some spare cash.
I'd recommend freelancer.com/odesk/elance or any other dedicated market place. Freelancer.com i.e. allows very focussed searches via projects, you can specify the skills, timeline and all requirements and usually you get tons of very qualified bids in less than 24-48h.
Yes, but I'd far rather work with/for someone I met through Hacker News (probably, in general, I did actually find a great guy through oDesk). I've found some great work through these HN posts before.
Definitely for seeking work those sites do tend to be mostly a race to the bottom, you wouldn't believe the silly small amounts some people bid for projects (and how often they get chosen based on that).
