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

SEEKING WORK - Remote, Boston, or possibly elsewhere

Primarily a backend web developer with lots of experience with PHP, MySQL, and to a lesser extent Python (which I prefer) and Django.

I co-founded and wrote almost the entire backend of a start-up that recently open-sourced its code: http://github.com/getchabooks/getchabooks.

I have lots of academic knowledge about linguistics and some experience with NLP tools, so I can quickly get up to speed on NLP projects.


email: m@mwhite.info

Edit: to be clear, I can absolutely get things done on the frontend too

Which scripts did you write yourself among https://github.com/getchabooks/getchabooks/tree/master/asset... ?

Basically none. Before I added/changed maybe 50 lines very recently to reflect a significant change in the data model and UX, I had pretty much never touched our JavaScript.

Who wrote https://github.com/getchabooks/getchabooks/blob/master/asset... ?

I notice it uses jQuery's .on method, which IIRC is fairly new.

My co-founders Mike (http://lazerwalker.com) and Ricky (http://rmondello.com) collaborated pretty closely on most of the JS. Usage of .on appears to have been introduced by Ricky in January.


I'm looking for a freelance designer (preferably located in the states but no strong bias) to work remotely for a 1-2 month contract with potential to extend.

The job is going to be to revamp Pingpanel.com which while it looks pretty does not reflect what the company currently does. Pingpanel now produces whitelabel question and answer software (see our first client http://diy-advice.ratedpeople.com).

Your job will be to revamp the look and messaging of the sales end of the site as well as helping improve the current software UI and will ideally use a bit of your javascript wizardry to make it nice 'n slick.

You'll be joining a team of 2 (sometimes three) developers across the world all of whom can do full stack but all of whom would appreciate someone with a strong aesthetic and a lust to beautify and stamp their own mark on the site.

Infrastructure is Rails so you should ideally know how to work with Rails templates, HAML and GIT. As long as you've done some work with templating in some language or other though that will be just dandy. Most important thing is good html/css and design, the rest we can teach you.

Please send applications with details of your availability and your portfolio to work at pingpanel dot com. The company is (leanly) funded and the work is available now so please reach out.

Please note you do need to include your portfolio, details and availability. Emails without these will get rejected. Thank you and look forward to hearing from you.

SEEKING FREELANCER - REMOTE - MVP Prototyping - 3 days Basic Design & Development

I'm looking get an MVP up and running over a weekend/3 days. Normally for personal projects I'd put something together myself however this is beyond my current skill set and my poorly written 'hack' won't cut it. I now need a solid base to demonstrate the initial concept to my potential customers to get feedback.

You'd be free to start from scratch & use your preferred technologies to develop a minimalistic group messaging web application & iOS app. In a nutshell - A user creates a group, invites other users via e-mail & all users within that group can post updates.

I'm super organised and very realistic with requirements. I have the basic database structure sketched out, wireframes & copy written.

This would be an ideal project for a developer that can fit in some extra weekend work.

I will be working alongside you during the project, removing as many obstacles as I can. I can take on the simpler tasks which will help me learn and leave you free to work on the challenges.

I'm also interested in hearing from any UI/UX designers so that I can get some longer term design ideas & concepts mapped out.

If you are interested please send a link to your portfolio and an estimate for 24 hours of work (3x8hour days).

I'm my username on gmail.com

Location: Columbia, Missouri (or Remote) Who we are DocumentCloud (http://www.documentcloud.org/home ) is a web based platform allowing journalists to upload, analyze, annotate, and publish primary source documents. We want give journalists the tools to show their audience their source material, not just tell them about it. In addition to the newsrooms worldwide who use DocumentCloud, our open source software projects (see: http://github.com/documentcloud ), such as Backbone.js, Underscore.js, Docsplit, and Jammit, are relied upon by companies such as LinkedIn, Walmart, Foursquare and more. DocumentCloud is run by Investigative Reporters & Editors (http://ire.org ).

DocumentCloud is looking for a freelancer who has experience working with solr and the JVM to assist us with scaling up our search index prior to DocumentCloud going international.

If you've got experience working with full text search indexes with millions of records (and possibly heavy duty faceting) please drop us a line at: jobs@documentcloud.org


We are Gerger (www.gerger.co), the creators of Formspider (www.theformspider.com), the Web 2.0 framework for Oracle PL/SQL developers. We are preparing a new version of our product and we would like to renew our product web site www.theformspider.com along with it.

Our product Formspider is for a specific group of developers namely, the Oracle PL/SQL developers. It's mainly used in mid to large size companies to build Budgeting, Accounting, Order Management, HR, ERP etc.. software.

Current Web site was done by us a year and a half ago. It's nice but building web sites is not our focus. The site is also showing its age.

Formspider impresses our users with its simple and elegant design. It is perceived as an unusually high quality, very innovative product built with care and attention to detail. We would like our new web site reflect these facts.

We want a simple yet beautiful design in our web site. Readable large fonts, excellent copyright, gorgeous pictures, icons and screen shots should provide a enjoyable experience to the visitor. We don't want run of the mill, stock photos, icons and text anywhere on the site. Each page needs to be individually crafted and be of excellent quality.

The entire goal of the web site is to reflect the high quality of our product.

Our favorite product, company web sites are www.apple.com (you should have seen this coming at this point :-) ) and http://www.fogcreek.com/fogbugz/

We've been struggling to find a freelancer or a team that can get this done. I thought of asking you on HN hoping that you can help.

Best, Yalim

You have some typos on this page http://theformspider.com/product.php?descid=5

Thanks. Could you tell me what they are please?

In case you see this:

Our background is PL/SQL and Oracle Forms. We were annoyed with the way web applications are supposed to be built nowadays. We wanted to build the Forms for the 21st century, and Formspider is just that. It is an intuitive, elegant framework that just feels right to build applications with. A framework that empowers you, eliminates all the drudgery of the Web but embraces all its beauty. Once you start using it, you will never want to build with anything else.

NB: I just removed one extra word, changed "build" to "built" in one instance, and combined a sentence. I didn't do a full re-write.


I will email/tweet your pitch on your behalf to 50 to 100 targeted tech, lifestyle, and business bloggers. My email is in my profile.

SEEKING WORK: Remote (NYC based, but need to work off-site)

What I do: Frontend (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript etc), UX & wire prototyping, full-stack PHP, Django (tho a little rusty), project management.

I'm currently stuck working off-site due to a back injury but happy to meet with folks in NYC. Looking for some new clients to fill in my roster for the next few months.

I have 10 years experience doing frontend and fullstack dev, and am becoming increasingly skilled at mobile web and HTML-based iOS + Android apps.

I have also launched & run 2 startup products myself, been a fulltime Product Manager at a venture backed startup, creative director at another, and put together dev and design teams for clients of all sizes.

To contact me and a little more info, you can check out my (very dated, sorry) site: http://www.zenjiweb.com . My resume is basically my LinkedIn profile http://www.linkedin.com/in/ronwhitman

Happy to meet w/ folks in New York City.

SEEKING WORK: Salt Lake City / Remote / Part-Time

Seeking part-time remote work in the care and feeding of Unix servers.

Strong generalist Unix admin w/ 20 years experience. Have worked for large and small shops, typical IT stuff as well as managed services, web/email hosting, and HPC environments.

I prefer small, laid-back employers. If you have an HR department, you're likely too big for my tastes. If your initial contact with me is "send me your resume" you're likely too conventional.

I live a simple, frugal life, so I bill accordingly, I've done the 9-to-5, and I hate it. I work to pay the bills and do fun stuff w/ my wife and kids. If you need a senior-level unix admin for a couple of hours a day/week/month, but can't afford a full-timer, then drop me a line.

I admit I'm not of the caliber of "ninja", "rock star", etc. that so many here seem to be (or need). But I've been managing unix servers for a long time, and I'm good at keeping the lights on. If you need a stalwart veteran of the unix command line, give me holler.


Web developer specializing in Wordpress. I’ve done: themes, plugins, migrations, general feature additions, and even minor hacking on the core.

Disclaimer: Wordpress is not for everyone and you should consulate an expert before running a Wordpress instance on your server. Side-effects may include: a blog you will never update, traffic spike induced crashes, and non-optional security updates. Always have an expert you can email should things go very wrong.

I'm trying an experiment this month. If you need iOS work done, hire me by buying a package of hours. Details are on my blog, here: http://skroob.com/blog/2012/08/01/hire-the-developer-with-no...

Prices are on the blog post, but I'm listing them here for simplicity's sake:

- 80 hours for $8000

- 40 hours for $5000

- 20 hours for $3000

- 10 hours for $1600

If you're interested in talking about what I can do for you, contact me at consult+hirehn@pocketsevens.net.

I'm in Canada and your site is very slow to load (over a minute). It is also very tricky to scroll vertically on an iPhone, it wants to scroll sideways instead. Just FYI.

Well that's no good. Thanks for letting me know, I will take a look.

Slow for me in NYC as well, just FYI. Also, 4.5 MB is quite large to show the first page. Amazon is 1.9 MB, and Pinterest actually comes in at under a MB by comparison.

SEEKING WORK: Front end and Drupal/Wordpress developer - NJ, usa or (preferably) remote

I've begun getting my feet wet with Rails and Sinatra over the last few months, so if anyone has any small or prototype-ish projects that they'd like to try out, I'm also seeking that kind of work.

For larger and more design focused projects I work with a top-notch designer, so bring those on, too. Thanks.

SEEKING FREELANCERS - Remote - Frontend - Javascript, HTML, CSS

I'm looking for a number of people who are interested in freelance work in (primarily) JS. Remote is fine, prefer full time (or close) availability and some overlap with US Eastern time would help.

The development will be using our API and the Google Closure library (experience not required). A strong background in JS/HTML/CSS is needed.

There are a large number of projects available and they require little coordination, so they are pretty ideal for remote freelancing.

I'm looking for a number of people who are interested in freelance work in (primarily) Javascript. Remote is fine, prefer full time (or close) availability and some overlap with US Eastern time would help.

The development will be using our API and the Google Closure library (experience not required). A strong background in JS/HTML/CSS is needed.

There are a large number of projects available and they require little coordination, so they are pretty ideal for remote freelancing.

Contact me at lwalker at monetate if you're interested or have any questions.

SEEKING WORK (USA|Remote|Puerto Rico) [Will travel] [American Citizen]

I ship software.

Engineer with three years of professional experience building and shipping software is currently accepting work offers.

Some engineers might focus on other things, but my focus is on getting your software ready as quickly as possible. Why? Because your business depends on it. Any day that you lose with a slow engineer is a day that you don't profit.

My rates are affordable. Other engineers will charge between $400 to $700 per day. Not me. I will only charge you $200 a day. Why are my rates so low? Because I don't have any overhead, and pass the savings on to you. Have a long term project? Let's talk. We can work something out.

Do I have a proven track record? Yes. In fact, I'm releasing my first free open source application in the coming weeks. If you so desire, I will send you an exclusive sample of the application. Just send me an email. No strings attached. I will not spam you. Also have another two more free open source apps coming up soon.

Best of all, I'm a generalist. Be it PHP, Python, Codeigniter, Flask , MySQL, Jquery, HTML/CSS, Linux, .NET, Windows, I can deliver anything you want. Need a purchasing application to control your costs? I can build it. Need an application to A/B test your marketing? That too. Need an API to integrate your services? I will build it for you. I am also fluent in English and Spanish. Si eres una empresa que busca un ingeniero tambien puedes contactarme. No importa el lugar.

All of this, plus the fact that I'm an older, and wiser engineer. I will not play around with your project in order to try out some new technology. I only use proven and reliable methods. Agile and TDD is welcome.

But wait. This all may sound too good to be true. Fine. Go ahead. Send me an email. Let's talk about your needs. Find out for yourself if I am the real deal. You want to interview me with some technical questions? That is great. I love technical interviews. They allow me to show you how good I am.

You can contact me at any time through my email address. It is listed in my profile. I am also available on Skype.

PS. Be sure to contact me ASAP, because last time I posted an ad on HN, I had two work offers on the first day. Be the first in line to hire me.

PPS. I am also available for long-term employment if the project is interesting enough.

If you contact me and mention this ad, I will give you a free one hour consultation. No need to pay any consulting fees (a $100 value). Just mention the ad, and we can schedule a consultation. There you can tell me all of your needs and wants, and I can give you some great ideas on how to acquire them. This is a $100 value free as a gift from me to you. Hurry, because I can only schedule a small and exclusive amount of free consultations.


Whatever web-work you need done (not programming) and you are too lazy to do or don't have the time. Email me the task and what you are willing to pay. No minimum. My email is in my profile. Cheers,
