One, "seeking work" as a freelancer doesn't necessarily mean the same thing as "unemployed". Many freelancers are juggling several projects, but still looking for few more to keep busy during the week. Some are looking for a future gig so that they have something to move on to next.
Two, the "developer shortage" you speak of tends to refer to full-time on-site developers. The people that fit these roles are not always the same as the people who are freelancers, often for lifestyle reasons. For example, not everyone wants to move to Palo Alto and work 60 hour weeks. Instead some choose the freelancing path because they have discovered that they can live more fulfilling lives by entirely avoiding the bureaucratic fascism of modern employment.
And finally, it's possible that the aforementioned "shortage" is the cause of a surplus in the other direction. It's easy to have ideas, and hard to implement them, so there are a lot of empty-shell startups springing up. These will have a hard time hiring good developers just because the developers have to be convinced of the value of this new hyper-social-geo-localized-dog-food-eating web service.
It might be interesting to know how many people actually got projects or jobs through this page. That would make it easier to benchmark my own listing.
For what it's worth, I don't believe there is any developer shortage at all, except maybe occasionally in unstable and hip niches.
1. Dev Ops: Node.js/Mongo/Redis/nginx/AWS backend programmer with good dev ops experience. Video experience helps (Transcoding, knowledge of formats, knowledge of storage techniques). Prefer someone that has scaled a cloud-based network globally before and understands the idiosyncrasies of caching and file propagation on such a network.
2. iOS developer: For cloud-based video sharing application. Must have good experience with AVFoundation. Any experience with video encoding or editing is a plus. Shaders a huge plus. But I need someone that understands how to send said video and other media across a wire using REST and sometimes more lower-level networking techniques.

We think that OkTrends (http://blog.okcupid.com/) is one of the best blogs for compiling research on real-life usage patterns in an interesting, visual, way, and we want to re-create it for car-buying.
We also think that people should be able to buy a car using the internet for as much of the transaction as possible. Our mission at CarWoo!(YC S09) is to become "THE Transactional Car Buying and Selling Marketplace." We are getting closer to our goal all the time, and have now seen many thousands of transactions come through the site. We're sitting on piles and piles of data, and we need to get it out in a more broad way.
To fulfill our mission, we have to get the word out about who we are. That's where you come in.
You should be curious about patterns in data, have a background in research or other relevant experience, and have a knack for writing in a way that is relatable to ordinary folks, yet packed with insight and deep understanding.
We've got lots of ideas on posts, you'll be free to add your ideas to the pot also. As far as the actual content of the posts, think lots of charts, statistical analysis of our data, and a story around everything from who our visitors are, to what times of the year people do their car-buying, to trending & popular cars, etc.
If you're interested, email me at email@example.com
This would be an ongoing project, with a steady stream of work.

I'm a fullstack developer who enjoys working on all parts a web app, from frontend to backend and even some sys admin. I've been building projects for myself, employers and other entrepreneurs for the past 6+ years. I'm most familiar with PHP, Python and node.js on the backend and have experience using jQuery and backbone.js for much of my frontend work. I'm currently the lead developer for 2 of my employer's sites but am looking to switch over to doing contract/freelance work again.
You can check out my latest side project http://iwaat.com, a search engine for web applications, which uses a combination of MySQL, MongoDB and Solr for data storage.

Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on my background and to discuss your latest project.
I have been shipping software for more than 10 years now, and love building high-quality products (or at least try my best for it!). I have recently started freelancing after my stint as a single founder, and recently finished remote contract work for another HN member's startup.
I am proficient with Ruby on Rails and generally quite adept at picking up new technologies as per the needs of the product. I call myself a generalist, and if you are a non-technical person, I can handle most of the things for you that go in to building & launching a software product (including screen flows, server-side programming, system administration, analytics & a little bit of digital marketing.)
I am open to a potential co-founder role as well, but as you know well, a lot of things need to fall in place for it. I guess it would be best if we work together on a short project first to see how good we are as a team.
Please see my profile for the contact & other relevant information. Just drop a line to say hello, it's always good to interact with fellow HN members!
I'm a web designer turned Django programmer, but web design is my strength and I'm mainly looking for design/HTML/CSS/JS projects.
See more about me:
http://limedaring.com / https://github.com/limedaring / http://twitter.com/limedaring
I'm Vitorio, a skilled user experience and interaction designer in Austin, TX.
I am currently available for research and design engagements, and also for ad-hoc design questions by the hour.
If you think your current site and onboarding flow and app design is okay and just want someone to make it prettier, make the logo pop, etc., that's not me.
If you want more users to sign up, users to stick around longer, users to pay more, heck, users to pay at all, that's me.
If you don't have a site or app yet and want to know what you need to know to make sure you don't have these common "let's just build it we'll figure it out later" teething problems, to have your app designed well from day 1, that's really me. I love those kinds of engagements the most. You'd be my favorite.
Ideally, we'll do a small research engagement together to figure out what you need, and then a proper, full design engagement. But, every project is unique; contact me and let's talk: http://vitor.io/
Not sure what you need? Never hired a designer? Just want to have a structured conversation by the half-hour or hour? Consider signing up for UX office hours instead, there's no obligation: http://uxhours.com/
Will also barter UX for art or development; front-end, Python, Node, or AWS (via Python or Node) are all of interest.
I've founded three startups myself so far, so I have some idea about what you're going through: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1214065#score_1214439
And, one startup has found me through HN, so that's something.
* Back-end web work experience (mostly in the enterprise, though I do work with startups):
Django since 0.97c
ASP.NET MVC 3 for a Fortune 500 company (contact me for the case study)
Did an entire Rails-rework for a ticket-reselling site that does 150MM annual revenue. Streamlined purchase system decreasing annual expenditures in the low 7 figures for a low 6 figure project.
* Mobile Development:
iOS and Android work with 4.5 stars and in the 1-5 million downloads range. Case studies available.
* Experience prior to freelancing:
Full-timed at one of the big tech consultancies in Cambridge before branching out into my own shop with 2 fantastically skilled, intelligent guys and an administrative assistant.
* Generic language skills:
Somewhere between proficient and advanced at C#3 and 4. Intermediate with 4.5 (Full-disclosure: w/r/t async, I'm a little less than top-notch)
Proficient at F#.
Front-end work is done by my partners Matt and Nicolas. Their portfolios available on request.
We usually take projects between 20k and 200k, entirely dependent on scope mind you. Pretty flexible depending on the viability of future work.
Contact information available in my profile. Generally, what we like to do is talk about the project requirements (our best clients have a RFP but if you don't have one that's totally okay!), preferably in person if possible. Within 72 hours, we'll get back to you with a proposal where we can par down feature-set for an MVP to cater to your budget. Mutually agree, sign the statement of work and kick off.
We are based in St. Albans and Newcastle. We are looking for a Python dev to join a team of existing developers working on web-based apps to integrate with our telecoms applications. We are also looking for skills with crawlers and data mining.
Please send an email the jobs email address in our profile with your skills and what you are passionate about
What Have I Got?
- A successful iOS app on the App Store (http://www.lineup-app.com), experience developing iOS frameworks, building mobile backends and websites with Rails (and Heroku or AWS), and figuring out how to get things done.
- I have worked with custom backends and Parse, I have built extensively on top of Twilio (Client and Rest API), and I pick new things up quickly.
- I have about a year of experience in both iOS and Rails development, but have already done a lot. This means you will get excellent results, but at a cheaper cost.
What makes me different?
- I have a double major in Physics and German from UC Berkeley
- I lived in Goettingen, Germany for over a year and am more than conversant in German
- I was a professional lifeguard in Newport Beach, CA for 7 years
- Straight out of college, I worked as a paralegal at an IP law firm in Palo Alto, CA for a year
What does all this mean? It means that I can get your job done, will actually talk to you (call me: 415-799-4160), and can help you far beyond being your code monkey (though I'm happy to do that too).
I am a US citizen, available immediately, can pick up new projects, fix existing projects, just answer your questions, or help at any stage of your app's progress (idea, building, testing, distribution, marketing, etc.) -- I've done it all and would love to help you out.
Did something up there convince you that I'm your guy? If so, shoot me an email (email@example.com) or call me (415-799-4160). I'm more than happy to talk to you about your project (no cost of course) and let you know how I can help, or point you to someone who can.
I am a frontend web developer (3+ years of freelance experience) and working with:
HTML5, CSS3, JS, jQuery, CoffeeScript, Backbone.js
I also hack stuff for the backend:
Ruby, Rails, Sinatra, MongoDB, HAML, SASS, Node.js

- http://usejquery.com (jQuery Showcase and Blog)
- https://github.com/mustardamus/ketchup-plugin (jQuery Form Validation Plugin)

If you're looking to build a fluid, native-feeling web app, I'm your guy. I've got oodles of experience designing and developing rich client-side web apps, including many large-scale JS applications with Backbone.js and other MV* frameworks (in the past, Zuck's demoed my work onstage at the F8 conference). While client-side web work is my expertise, I'm a solidly 'T-shaped' generalist -- I'm capable of handling pretty much anything that needs doing in order to launch a product, whether that means server-side or native iOS development, copywriting or analytics, or anything in between.
Past projects and contact info can be found at http://lazerwalker.com. Don't be a stranger -- I'm always happy to meet fellow HNers.
Preferably remote, though I do live in the San Francisco area.
Skills include UX/UI & Product Design, HTML & CSS. I'm also very comfortable working with the design integration in Django & Rails environments.
http://dribbble.com/hastings/ for my latest work, hunter @ hah.to to get in touch.
-- Five years experience Rails experience (4 years)
-- Comfortable in Ruby, PHP, Java, Python
-- Advanced experience in design as well as UX/UI
I'm as comfortable writing a lengthy, nested join statement in SQL as I am designing a mockup in Photoshop, writing a web crawler in Node, designing a schema for Postgres, or building a web-socket driven Rails app.
Some examples of what I've built from scratch and on my own, from design to frontend to backend:

Need translators from English into other languages. Preferably your native, home language is that language. We have enough Spanish translators, but anything else we are looking. We have projects ready to go now in many languages, and have projects coming down the pipeline in the coming weeks/months for other languages.
A little bit of XML knowledge would be helpful, although nothing extensive is needed. It would put you ahead of others in your language.
Paying market per word rates. Some (not all) of the translations will be for FLOSS projects, so you may be getting paid to work on FLOSS projects in some instances.
Project size varies - some are a few dozen words, some are thousands of words.
It is true that it is generic to say market rate, but our rates depend on the language - some are more expensive per word on average than others.
Our projects have different and shifting priorities also - we would not pay above market rates for Finnish at the moment, but might pay slightly higher (at the moment) for Russian or Greek. We have different work as well - proofreading for correctness we would pay less for, translation that involves a little creative writing we'd pay more for.
The work is for a photography shopping cart product called "Photography Orders". You can see the product here: http://www.photographyorders.com
Photographers upload their photos and sell them to their clients using this software.
What I would like is to build an app so that photographers can upload photos from their iPhone.
The application would have the following screens
1. Login screen
- Username and password. Authenticated from their installation of Photography Orders
- Photographers would need to enter the url where their Photography Orders is installed on this page. (This URL would need to be remembered so that they don't need to enter it in all the time)
2. Select client and gallery screen
- This screen would have a dropdown button where the photographer selects the client they would like to upload photos for
- There would be another dropdown button where the photographer selects the gallery they would like to upload photos into
- There would be another dropdown where the photographer selects the category they would like to upload photos into
- Then there would be a button where the photographer could tap "Upload photos"
3. Upload photos
- When the photographer taps "Upload photos", they are shown a screen with all of the photos on their phone on it. They can tick which photos to upload, and then click "Upload", and all of the ticked photos will be uploaded and processed the same way they currently are in the application
- While the photos are uploading, the photographer will see a screen that says "uploading photos". I would like a progress bar to show how many photos have been uploaded so far, and how many are left to be uploaded
- Once photos are uploaded, they will be taken back to screen 2 that has a message at the top that says "Photos Uploaded Successfully"
- If photos fail during upload, it needs to display a meaningful error message
I will also need the app submitted to the app store (it will be a free app)
Please email me email@example.com if interested
- Mobile development: iOS and Android
- Server/infrastructure: Apache / nginx, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, open source (no Microsoft)

I'll build you an app that will literally figuratively blow your pants clean off. Also, I'll do it from $2000.
I've done a few of these now but the majority are in-house apps and as such I have little to show. I need to build up a bit of a portfolio that folks can actually see.
Also, due to personal circumstances, my hours are all over the place so I'm not Johnny Officehours.
I also have many, many years of web app dev and design experience. Happy to go into more detail via e-message and discuss all the bits & pieces.

- Devops / Developer minded SysAdmin: this is a very important role, PUPPET, Chef, AWS, Linux, LXC, OpenVZ. Xen, VMWare, you should just have this immense desire to automate and simplify everything, and be a product person, plan, implement and ship - not a maintainer that lives in their cave until things crash, and apply one off server tweaks.
- Frontend Developer: HTML, CSS, Coffeescript - Familiarity with Node/Ruby/Mongo/Mysql, cool github projects is a plus, have to have your own website when we click your link, it should make us want to hire you.
- Backend Developer: Go, Node,Python,Ruby,Coffeescript, MongoDB, RabbitMQ are the things we use. More you know these, the better. If you miss some, don't worry, if you have a strong OOP background, and designing/working on large scale apps is your thing, just drop me an email.
We're open for remote, part time or full time in San Francisco. Only thing we don't want is that you have multiple clients. You can be a student or very experienced individual, and work for Koding 20 hours a week, or work a day or two. You just shouldn't be managing multiple clients and not show up for Koding because your other client had emergency. We want Koding to be the only thing you think about, when you're not working, when you go to sleep, when you wake up.
At this stage we're more willing to have VERY experienced developers, and we're very generous with rates. Our current freelancers have stocks in the company, we don't favor in house developers (alright, maybe just a little :)). Some of our freelancers make more than those are in the office. Your location has no significance to us, just your work. If your work is awesome, your compensation is equally awesome.
This summarizes the type of person we want, (my contact information is here)
I also want you to try Koding, for that please drop me a note, I will send you an invite.
Little about Koding: http://techcrunch.com/2012/07/24/koding-launch/

and on-budget. Every project. No excuses.
