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

Seeking work - Remote, Freelance

iOS product management, user-experience, product design.

How I work:

I will have a thorough phone discussion with you about what the product will do, who the users are, etc., then I will iterate through several wireframe's, getting your feedback. You'll be able to reach me via IM, email, or phone. Once we have a wire-frame, I'll get you PSD's and/or any other images you need.

Latest project: https://www.dropbox.com/s/onp88n40ub5peb5/preview.png

Email me: freelance@adamchavez.net

Beautifully designed!


offtopic: why do you need "scan" button? The system should know if it sees QR code by itself.

Great question.

When the app is opened, the default view is for the scanner to be open and ready to scan. The only reason for the "scan" button is if the user has gone to "history" or "settings" and then wants to go back to "scan" mode.

Feel free to test the app out yourself: http://bit.ly/IcwM62

SEEKING WORK - Remote, Europe (Italy)

I’ve just made the jump from corporate life to freelancing and I’m looking for my first clients to kick-start my new activity!

What can I do for you:

  * Android apps;

  * Image/video processing and computer vision;

  * Web front-end development (HTML/CSS/Javascript);

  * Qt Quick Interface development (QML);

  * Web back-end development (PHP/Mysql/Python/Ruby/Redis);

  * Machine learning;
I'm also interested in picking up technologies i'm less familiar with (e.g. iOS development, Windows 8 Metro development), obviously billing lower rates - not billing training hours. I assure that I deliver what I promise.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Spurfly - Palo Alto, CA or Arlington, VA - LOCAL or REMOTE

    • Designer (Android and iOS primarily, as well as web)

    • Front-end developer for desktop web and/or mobile web
If you happen to be both of the above, that'd be awesome. Help us scale and meet demand for real-time location-aware planning. Our focus is on groups and events ("spur of the moment, on the fly"). We've launched the first version of our iOS app and are working on a web and Android version.

The founders are straight shooters who value clear communication and getting stuff done. We're obssessed with creating a product that fills what we see as a major hole in social networking software -- helping people more efficiently connect in real-life with close networks so they can spend more of their time building and enriching real relationships.


    • frontend: coffeescript, jQuery, backbone.js, socket.io, compass

    • backend: python, django, gevent, gunicorn, nginx, postgresql
Immediate front-end needs include many web design tasks and coffeescript/js templates for our single-page architecture web site. We're also on the lookout for a good mobile app designer to help us design our first Android release and update our iOS app UI as we gather feedback from users.

Support what's going to potentially be a wild ride as we do launch events over the next few months.

SEEKING WORK - BC, Canada, Remote, up to 30% travel

Certified, incorporated Project Management contractor/consultant. I mostly work with US clients.

My dream client is a smaller start-up-ish company that has a product (or products) available in the market. Your clients need some assistance and oversight when deploying/installing/implementing said product. You need a gatekeeper between the client and the development team - someone who can set their expectations realistically and tell the difference between a bug and a PEBKAC error.

Projects never go as fast as they should, right? From my experience on software implementation projects with Massive Fortune 500 corporations, I know what to expect and can help them plan realistically to avoid those surprise scrambles :)

I'm a technology loving geek, but not socially awkward (or so I like to think). Incorporated, professional, funny and adventurous.



We're expanding our web services and want someone keen to get their feet really wet with Javascript front-end development with a focus on both desktop and mobile. You've got experience with JQuery and maybe you're in love in Python. If you want to play with MapReduce, write an API, scale web services and work with real-time data, there's a lot of fun yet to be had. 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 with some work you've done.


Web & User Interface Designer looking to work with startups, smaller companies (e.g. agencies, 2-3 person teams), and cool non-profits/orgs. I offer affordable rates and decent turnaround times. Ideal projects involve product and web application design.

Proficient in: Visual Design (Photoshop), HTML5, CSS, jQuery, and Wordpress.

Comfortable working with: Ruby/Rails, Python/Django, Git

SEEKING WORK p/t - Amsterdam, NL - remote, freelance

I am a (slightly older than most) student living in Amsterdam for the month. I'm currently sole developer on an unannounced startup, but with the semester ending I have some time for smaller side projects. I am a generalist with decent skills in a wide variety of activities, and have written production code in HTML/CSS/JS, Flash/AS, Perl, VBA/VB6 (ewwww), and C#, and have recently begun tinkering around with Wordpress. Much of my work is in small, private, one-off projects (custom reporting, dynamic banner ads, random hacks to clean up data mistakes by production servers, etc), but am not completely bereft of publicly-visible projects.



Sample work: the Dynamite Deals Firefox addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dynamite-deal...

Looking for short-term (days to a week or two) tasks.

PS- I can do English-language copywriting, technical documentation, Photoshop, video editing, and a bunch of other things too!

SEEKING FREELANCER - Berkeley, CA (Remote Considered)

~=> Android Tablet Hardware Hacker <=~

Interested in CyanogenMod? Like hacking & rooting Android tablets? Ever thought it would be fun to hack together your own tablet, from scratch?


This is the type of person we are looking for. If you're interested, we would love to chat! Ping us with a bit of information about yourself and your background...



Particularly experienced in Django. Solid familiarity with C#, and firmly intermediate fluency in Haskell.

Client side experience with jQuery, backbone and coffeescript. I have a simple iOS app in the App Store as well.

Would enjoy working in-person in NYC, but remote is fine as well.




5 year old established and well publicized "cloud" start-up with millions of registered users seeking a rockstar PHP / mobile / HTML5 / futurist lead developer to turn the web on its head in an ambitious redirection.

Email CEO at boldnewdirections@gmail.com (blind email address for obvious reasons)


Starting salary negotiable with generous equity offering for the right candidate. Remote OK, located or willing to relocate to Downtown Detroit, MI strongly preferred within 2-3 months of employment.

You'll be working side-by-side with CEO/product chief/designer as part of a small team. The groundwork has been laid, and you'll play a key role in reshaping the company as it goes from good to great. Tremendous and immediate growth opportunity.

Highly qualified candidates should email us resume + working examples of your work + current availability. This is for a full-time position.


Hi there. How are you doing? My company is looking to hire several freelancers to develop a multitude of small mobile apps. You can use whatever technology you are comfortable with: native iOS, Android, Windows Phone, or an HTML/JavaScript framework. (Even better if you have XP on several of those.)

The only non-negotiable requirements are: previous experience developing a mobile app, and an understanding of REST APIs.

On our end, we’re a growing startup with solid funding. We will pay top dollar for top work. I was a freelancer for many years, so I know the potential pet peeves and potholes of such relationships – I will take care of you as I wish my clients had taken care of me.

Please send sample work you think is relevant to tim@apigee.com (code samples & full apps preferred) and let’s kick ass together.


I'm a seasoned frontend dev with an extreme eye for detail, and a knack for product design.


I've been lead frontend developer on over 60 pixel perfect projects, and a jack of all trades aside from that. I dream in Javascript and a huge fan of Knockout.js data-binding framework.

But my real passion is product design. I've applied to Y-Combinator, and was a 2-time finalist in an incubator here in St. Louis. I have a page full of killer product ideas, some of which have gotten funded by others to the tune of $1 million or more.

I've been building WordPress marketing sites for 7 years and I'm pretty sick of it, would love a gig where I can work on a real startup project. Hope to hear from you

I'm a generalist web developer / front end person with many hundreds of dog years experience.

Exciting bullet points:

* PHP - primarily Codeigniter but I'm flexible :)

* HTML 5 / CSS 3

* Javascript

* iOS/Android app dev (using Titanium or PhoneGap)

* Git/Mercurial

I also have a degree of exposure to things like SASS, Mongo, AWS etc etc.

My site: http://pitbot.net

I'm in the UK.

I strongly suggest you learn Objective C. It's not that hard and when compared with the trash you get using Titanium or PhoneGap it'll put you in a different league professionally.

At the very least learn another language, whether it's Python, Ruby or C#. Polyglot >>>>>> Monoglot

I strongly disagree. It's completely possible to build useful, beautiful native apps with PhoneGap, et al. In fact, it is beneficial in many cases, allowing developers to get from zero to prototype significantly faster. Not to mention, porting from one OS to another is magnitudes faster than writing multiple native versions.

It's not the right solution for all cases, but it's definitely right for some.

Sure, it's easier for us developers, but every PhoneGap app I've seen looks like trash compared to other iOS apps.

And I completely agree with your last sentence. PhoneGap is the right choice for some cases.

"... every PhoneGap app I've seen looks like trash compared to other iOS apps"

That's because the you don't notice the good ones. ;)

Fair point. I'd be thankful if you could mention a few of them.

Thanks :)

I'm picking up Obj C but it's early stages yet. I'm also building a couple of things in Python but not to the level I'm comfortable risking someone else's project on it at the moment.

I do know a fair bit of C and spent 3 years in a Perl shop but tbh, I'd rather not go down that path right now :)

I paused learning Objective C to focused on .Net for my new job, but will be picking it back up shortly. Python is next on my list.

And I don't blame you for the C/Perl sentiment :)
