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

SEEKING WORK - London or remote.

I specialize in algorithmic problems. Here are some things I've been working on lately:

Scalable recommendations engine - https://github.com/jamii/springer-recommendations

Concise pattern matching and parsing - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4902219

Parallelizing a constraint solver - http://scattered-thoughts.net/blog/2012/12/19/search-trees-a...

I have a strong background in math (real analysis, probability, discrete maths) and computer science (randomized algorithms, AI / epistemic logic, machine learning). I'm comfortable with clojure, python, erlang and ocaml but I will learn whatever is the right tool for the job.

I would consider full-time work for the right problem/team. I'm also interested in partnering with other freelance developers to cover the whole stack.

Resume - http://scattered-thoughts.net/about.html

SEEKING FREELANCER Software Engineer in NYC: Red Antler is looking for a freelance backend or full-stack developer located in New York City. Candidates should have at least 3-4 years experience in a language like Python, Ruby, PHP, .NET, or Java, and 2-3 years experience in a web-based MVC framework (Django, Rails, Codeigniter, etc...). Candidates should demonstrate experience beyond creating basic CRUD webapps. We are looking to build a webapp to upload large amounts of images, read EXIF data and process the images simultaneously as well as the ability to manage and track the uploaded images. For more information contact travis@redantler.com

SEEKING FREELANCER, UK, remote welcomed.

I'm Tech Director at FARM Digital. We're a digital agency based in the UK, but the right person can work remotely from anywhere. We're looking for a PHP freelancer who is confident using Symfony. The work is mainly maintenance work on some fairly high profile e-commerce sites (> £1mil turnover/year), so it isn't glamorous, but we're a fun team to work with, and the work is based on a retainer, so it's generally recurring. I estimate there is 3-4 days day a month here for the right person.

I can be contacted on jon@wearefarm.com, or @jon_atkinson. It would be good to see some examples of past work, or Github/Bitbucket links.

SEEKING FREELANCER - in cities (Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto)

We are experiencing a surge of businesses in the form of project work the cities above (most needs to be local) in the following stacks: Node (SF), Drupal (NY, Seattle), Backbone.js and Ember.js (SF and NY), Rails (Chicago, NY), LAMP (Toronto), iOS (LA and SF)and Android (LA and SF). I know is a handful - but we vet and scrutinize every opportunity to make sure it does not suck and there is real money behind it. To take a closer look at the scope and size of each project ping me at manny at grouptalent dot com.


HappyFunCorp (http://happyfuncorp.com) - We're trying to find 5-10 good developers, and we're also interested in designers and project managers.

We do web and app development for a panoply of clients ranging from Fortune 500 to brand-new startups: right now the distribution is roughly 50-50. Most frequently Android/iOS apps with a Rails-on-Heroku back end, but there's a fair amount of other variety too (PHP/Drupal, HTML5, etc etc etc.)

We're loosely based in NYC, with another cluster of people in the Bay Area and a third in Delhi, but remote engineers are very welcome - most of us (including me) work remotely 90+% of the time. We prefer people with a reasonable amount of experience under their belt, but there are always exceptions. And we pay well.

If you're interested, email me: jon@happyfuncorp.com

Email sent.


Web app dev (PHP), web design, iOS & Android app dev/design, HTML build and perhaps 8 other things.


* PHP (mainly Codeigniter in recent times)

* HTML / CSS (5/3 respectively if you want hotness, XHTML and RDFa also if you prefer)

* Javascript / jQuery

* Titanium or Phonegap mobile dev

* Nice SEO

* UI/UX to some extent

* Git / Mercurial

Other stuff too numerous for a tidy post, but if it applies to the web I've probably had a go at it at some point.

I've worked on everything from Wordpress blogs to big e-commerce sites (big being relative but think $1m+/month). Also have a couple of new iOS/Android apps coming out shortly. I can see through an entire project from start to finish if required and have a lot of knowledge built up over time on what converts.

My site - in need of an update but here it is:


I'm UK based. Discounts available if you'd prefer to fly me out to somewhere nice (hmm!)


Seeking an engineer to help us build an ipad application that needs to take data from a medical device serial port & send it to a RESTful API (can be rails, python, or php). Also need someone to work on the Ipad app. If you can do both backend development & ipad development, great. If you're interested in just one portion of the project, that works as well.

Our team consists of 2 leading SF bay area physicians & myself, an engineer/designer. Could turn into consistant work or a FT position for those interested in contract-to-hire work as well.

SEEKING WORK – Remote / Washington, DC Metropolitan Area

- I’m a full stack web developer who can take care of your web presence end-to-end, including hosting and system administration, as well as building out your designs.

What I can do for you:

- VPS Setup & Configuration, whether for a web server or otherwise.

- General SysAdmin work.

- PHP / MySQL back-end development (have been using Rails at my day job for 6 months or so, but I’m sure your money would be better used with another Rails developer).

- HTML5 Front-End, with excellent knowledge of best practices, and how to best deal with browser inconsistencies.

- Javascript: Been developing with jQuery since version 1.3, and greatly enjoy using Backbone.js as well. Of course, I can do the same tasks with “raw” Javascript, it’ll just take longer.

- Responsive Design: I’m excellent at converting existing templates into a responsive design to allow for mobile compatibility.

- CSS: Whether it be debugging some wonky IE6 issue, or creating a solid Compass pipeline for you, I’m here to help.

- CMS: I’ve developed several in-house content management systems, as well as doing a large amount of work in Wordpress and (ugh) Joomla.

My major projects: http://wireless.walmart.com, http://wirefly.com, http://www.rcn.com

Feel free to reach out to me at ryandavies@gmail.com


Looking for experienced front end javascript developer in NYC to help continue to develop an large Instant Messaging application. Code base is currently backbone with a Rails back end and some other custom components. Application is deployed and in use by 10's of thousands of customers.

No remote work, sorry. Prefer a generalist with good all around experience including back end Rails work if possible. Contract is minimum of several months full time and pay is excellent.

Would like to learn more about your opportunity. Can you please contact me at juan[at]grouptalent.com ?

SEEKING WORK - Amsterdam, London, Remote.

I am a sysadmin who loves to efficiently solve business problems. With a DevOps background, twelve years of sysadmin experience, and a passion for problem-solving, I am keen to help HNers achieve their goals. My main areas of expertise are:

    Scaling high traffic websites

    Designing highly-reliable applications

    Migrating to AWS (e.g. from Heroku, if you want more control over your request routing and costs)

    Server maintenance and optimisation

    Reducing the cost of existing AWS resources
I am building a business around the idea of a 'sysadmin as a service' for those people who need regular sysadmin work, yet do not have enough projects to justify hiring a full-time sysadmin. Would you like a friendly expert to work on ad hoc projects and also be available for emergency support?

If you'd like to discuss any of these services in more detail, I'd love to hear from you - mike@fadedink.co.uk

Our delegation is completely abstracted - all communications go through me and all deployment goes through our standard, simple processes.

We're currently available for a 20-hour or 40-hour per week retainer, starting in middle March.

My github: http://github.com/kvnn My linked-in: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/kevin-riggen/28/447/602/ My email: kriggen//gmail

Our stack is currently: * HTML / CSS / JS / jQuery * Python / Django * PHP / Wordpress / Drupal

SEEKING WORK - remote welcomed, will travel, Winnipeg/Toronto based

We're a small (there are three of us) web/mobile development shop in Canada. We do all of the usual PHP work with all of the usual frameworks/CMSes (Symfony, CodeIgniter, Cake, Concrete5, Wordpress, etc) but we much prefer working in Python/Node.js when the project allows. Personally, I'm particularly interested in client-side Javascript (or Coffeescript) applications (eg. using Backbone), especially projects with real-time and/or data visualization needs.

I also have experience doing embedded systems work and projects that interface web or mobile apps with [remote] hardware, in case that interests anyone :)

Beagle is a Node.js mobile web app that allows college students to post and run errands on campus. http://getbeagle.com

We already wrote the API, and have designed and created the HTML templates for the various parts of the app. In order to launch the app, we need help doing a few more things:

- Creating a node module that exposes the API to the rest of the back-end

- Creating a messaging system between users (Socket.io or AJAX)

- Implement an authentication (log in) system

Familiarity with MongoDB, CoffeeScript, and a modern HTML template language is preferable.

Seeking Work, Dallas - Remote

Full stack developer: Node, PHP, Ruby/Rails, SQL and MongoDB Mobile: iOS

I'm a super-generalist. I've done everything from developing for obscure ERP systems, to social networking sites, to mobile devices. Recently I've been pulled into the Node.js world where I've been designing data services and web services with Express and Restify on top of MongoDB.

I have immediate availability for most small projects. We can discuss longer-term engagements if needed.


SEEKING FORTUNE, GLORY & ADVENTURE: Bespoke software for you made in NYC

These are two little projects I have done recently:

* http://streamjoy.tv/

* http://willholloway.net/makertime.html

* http://officespaceinct.com

My work history:

1994: Spend year dabbling in Visual Basic, get introduced to core programming concepts. Got obsessed with The Hobbit/Lord of The Rings and put coding aside.

2008: Took a college hiatus, 4 credits shy of graduation. They still let me walk, and I have a photo of me in a cap and gown and ostensibly receiving a diploma, which turned out to be a cheap placeholder containing an ominous threat to whomever failed to settle their tuition balance. Decided to put finishing college aside as way of burning my boats: entrepreneurial victory or destitution.

2008-2009: Sold fireworks, started and ran a global Facebook ads arbitrage operation. I've run many positive ROI ad campaigns with my own funds.

2010-2011: Facebook market changed. Switched to building products. Shipped and sold two Drupal based products.

Mid-2011-Present: Started reading Hacker News articles and comment threads obsessively, with a lot of googling to discover the meanings of terms like turing complete.

2012: Paid python consultant - built two products for client that are patent pending and am forbidden to show.

Year to date: Freelance gigs and afterwork keep rolling in.

The Future:

Flask/Python/Mongo/Elasticsearch/flat file architecture are my speciality. I am obsessed with automation and tools like fabric. When you are bootstrapping your own products you learn how to be extremely lean.

I work excellently remotely but will go anywhere the NYC subway system will take me. I make it a point to be highly available for communication.

To Other Freelancers:

I would love to ally with other freelancers to create a syndicate that would complement each others skills and/or bequeath job overflow to one another.



I'm looking for a Python+Django developer who can help me with a project. Would prefer someone who has intermediate to advanced Django knowledge, very readable code, good documentation skills, and good Django practices in general so that I might learn some of them along the way.

Shoot over your githubs, demos, portfolios and hourly rates to M8R-6sn1py@mailinator.com (sorry about the disposable email).

While I am on a budget, I'd gladly pay a higher rate to a good dev and have fewer hours of work each week.

Forgot to mention, remote work is perfectly fine.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Netherlands preferred, remote considered

I am seeking a Python/Django full stack developer to help with finishing up, launching, and maintaining a sustainability data sharing platform for a customer and/or with a number of smaller Django+AngularJS projects.

I would prefer someone from the Netherlands so we can meet in person, this could also be a longer term project. Remote is always a possibility if we can work well together.

Please get in touch to find out more about project specifics.


Want some design comps turned into code lickety-split? We convert your Photoshop design file into a responsive HTML5 website with JavaScript and deliver it within 24 hours, guaranteed.

We are a team of Front-End engineers, HTML5/JavaScript developers & Photoshop experts. Let's set up a Skype call @ http://overnightconversions.com


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 started freelancing a few months ago after my stint as a single founder. One of my first clients was a HN member for whom I did remote contract work for almost a couple of months.

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.)

To give an example of me trying out new things, the consulting assignment I just finished was related to conversion optimization(s) and driving growth for a startup in the education domain. I am up for any work that is challenging & stimulating.

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 am a full stack web developer with interest in machine learning, compression, parsers, auction systems, resource allocation (especially optimization) and alternative databases. Please only contact me if you have a project that somehow ties in to this space as I am trying to focus my efforts substantially.

If you need a developer with a strong business sense, the ability to make rational business oriented decisions, understand a variety of perspectives and interface with members of your team with a range of backgrounds, we should talk.

I may not be available on a short schedule (I have many active clients at the moment) but I am interested in hearing about exciting projects that I could potentially contribute to. I do have a small network of other developers that I can manage for short term projects when time pressure is on.

I am a software engineer and technology consultant who focuses on building Android apps. Within the last 2 years, I have built six Android apps and two SDKs. I am deeply passionate about mobile development and creating top-notch experiences.

What can I do for you? Here are some examples:

* iOS to Android Ports. You have an iOS app that you would like to port to Android. I can take the existing iOS experience, make it conform to Android standards and deliver a polished high-quality app.

* Web Apps. You have a mobile site that you want to convert to an app. I can take the web content and create an app using an existing solution like PhoneGap or a custom web wrapper. We can go one step further and create a hybrid app that combine the best of the web and native worlds to fully leverage all the capabilities of the mobile device.

* App Rescue and Optimization. You have an Android app that isn't quite performing. Perhaps it crashes, it's slow or has other problems. I can take a look, diagnose the issues and fix them.

* SDKs. You have some awesome functionality that you'd like developers to use in their apps. I can put together an SDK or library that lets developers easily do that.

* Strategy. Need advice on how to best approach Android development? Perhaps you are wondering what features your app should have to be successful? Or you have concerns about how to best approach testing on the myriad of Android devices? I can put together a plan that addresses issues like these and many more.
