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.
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.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or @jon_atkinson. It would be good to see some examples of past work, or Github/Bitbucket links.
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.
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)
* 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.
I'm a full-stack web developer who just started a small dev agency in Los Angeles.
We're ultra-focused on web development and specialize in providing technical capabilities to agencies who don't have internal tech teams, or providing capacity to dev teams who don't have enough internal resources.
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.
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 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.
Full stack developer: Node, PHP, Ruby/Rails, SQL and MongoDB
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.
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.

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.
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 - email@example.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: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm very good at finding solutions to complex problems, enjoy rescuing projects in trouble, and like working with technology in general. I always chatting about requirements, feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com
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 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!
