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

SEEKING WORK - SF Bay Area - Remote OK, travel negotiable

Let's face it. All of this shiny "Web 2.0" stuff has to run on top of some unglamorous plumbing. Who creates that plumbing and keeps it running? People like me.

Clusters? Device drivers? Filesystems? Build tools for your source code? That's the sort of stuff I do.


Examples of things I've created:

http://scanner.rachelbythebay.com/ - Software Defined Radio used to monitor an entire trunked system in parallel, with over 1 million calls logged and randomly accessible. Includes bonus "social layer" where people can tag interesting calls to make them easier for others to find quickly.

http://rachelbythebay.com/bb/ - C++ depot build tool. Why specify dependencies twice? #include should be all you need. Can you build a large project without writing rules in some build language (Makefile and friends)? I can. Can you add new files to your depot without having to go back to that build language to teach it about them? Yep, I can do that too.

https://github.com/rachelbythebay/protolog - Tired of parsing Apache logs in ASCII? Keep them in a strong binary format and your life gets much easier.

http://fred.rachelbythebay.com/ - I got tired of Google Reader way back in 2011 and wrote a replacement which just works and stays out of my way. Now, when they pull the plug in July, I'll be ready.

https://rachelbythebay.com/edu/ - Streaming high-bitrate video just to be able to read someone's "screencast" is just painful. Text should be text. I use that philosophy to provide lessons for those looking to build things with C++.

I also slice through weird "it doesn't work" problems, sometimes for things I've never even seen before. Got some legacy system which doesn't want to play nice any more? Shoot me a message: https://rachelbythebay.com/contact/

UX freelancer seeking work.

San Francisco Bay Area, remote is fine. I've been a UX director for years, now freelancing primarily with startups as I get the experience to start my own.

My portfolio can be found at http://jaysonelliot.com/about


Hey, I hope you don't mind me giving you some feedback on your portfolio site:

1. Illustrator does this weird thing with curved paths where the the auto-artboard-shrinker thing crops the curves at the borders, so the curved letters in your logotype are getting cut off. You have to go in and manually resize the crop area to account for that.

2. Your actual work is fantastic, but your presentation is really, really bad. I'm not sure if it's a default PowerPoint template, but it sure looks like one. Make every part of your portfolio speak to your strengths!

3. Using Scribd to serve your portfolio isn't a good idea. It pixellates your presentation and frames it in its awful UI. You're a UX director, remember? Take me on a guided tour of your previous work and make me believe that you're really able to add some magic to my crappy UX. Alternatively, just use large static images that are nicely arranged so that I can easily see what I need to see to make an assessment of your work.

When I'm hiring and I see sites like yours (where the work is fantastic but the site is mediocre) I start to ask questions. Were you really the one leading the UX vision, or were your underlings just able to fill in the gaps? If you were working as a group, were you actually contributing that much?

Just some food for thought.

I think that's great feedback. I'm definitely suffering from the "cobbler's children go barefoot" syndrome. I should set aside a few days to work on my own site.

If you have any other thoughts, please send me an email. I'm always looking for constructive criticism, especially as I'm leaving the world of agency work and trying to establish myself in a product-driven world.

He's looking for a job, not advice in this thread. You are making him look bad to potential clients. If you want to help, just send him a private message.

Interested in opportunities and connections. Currently employed by a structural engineering firm as a Revit modeler/drafter, Revit parametric programmer, pseudo-project-manager, Windows Server administrator, network administrator, and backup administrator. In my spare time I have been working through a couple of personal Django projects, which were designed using Inkscape and are being implemented on Debian/Xfce, using Geany, and VirtualEnv, Pip, git, etc. for development. I previously worked for a local web development shop as a designer/developer/pseudo-web-service-provider-admin using PHP, MySQL, Adobe Creative Suite, and such to design sites on top of Drupal for localish small to medium sized businesses. Quit because Drupal & sales guy making promises without consulting programmers.

Current job has no prospect for advancement. There is, ironically, no structure. Pay is not adequate for responsibilities and contributions. I work there because I like the people I work with, I learn a lot from my boss, and I enjoy a good amount of the work. I want to work somewhere else because a lack of freedom drives my motivation to live into the dirt, and sitting for 8-12 hours out of the day without windows is crushing my soul and sapping what's left of this short life.

I would likely have to work remotely, but I'm dedicated and loyal and have a conscience. The guy I work for now has admitted that he takes advantage of my desire to work well.

So, if anybody is interested in talking about prospects for a guy with the sort of experience I've indicated, feel free to contact me. The last (strictly design) job I did for University of Oklahoma was based on the premise that I would provide a design without any expectation for compensation unless they used the design. I was compensated, and the entire process was enjoyable and rewarding.

I have a web app that is coded 90% (Python/Flask) by me but need serious help on designing the front end. I would like to work with a designer and code things together (I build the backend, you do the front end). I prefer designers who can code over developers who can design a little bit.

SEEKING WORK - Remote or in-person (Austin, TX). We are looking to ramp up for June-September. We currently have bandwidth of 190-225 hours/month. We specialize in Django web development (web sites & web applications.) We help non-technical founders get their ideas off the ground.

SEEKING WORK - NYC or remote.

I am a software engineer who focuses on Android development. Within the last 2 years, I have worked on projects for for small and large startups, as well as for brands such as AT&T, Anheuser Busch and Victoria Secret. Within that period I have completed over seven apps and two mobile SDKs. I am deeply passionate about mobile development and creating top-notch experiences.

What can I do for you? Here are some things I specialize in:

* iOS to Android Ports. Do you have an iOS app that you want to port to Android? I can take the existing iOS experience, modify it to conform to Android standards and deliver a polished high-quality Android app. I have done this successfully for multiple clients such Gving and Snapr (see my portfolio below [1]).

* Web Apps. Do you have a mobile site that you want to convert to an app? I can package the mobile web content and create a mobile app using a standard solution like PhoneGap or a custom web wrapper. For more advanced projects I can create a hybrid app that combines the best of the web and native worlds to fully access all the capabilities of the mobile device. Some sample projects in this category include JackThreads and Snapr (see my portfolio below [1]).

* App Rescue and App Optimization. Do you have an Android app that isn't quite working? Perhaps it crashes, it's slow or has other problems? I can perform a complete analysis, diagnose the issues and quickly fix them. For a sample project in this category see Loc8te in my portfolio below [1].

* SDKs. Do you have some awesome stuff that you want everyone to use in their own apps? I can put together a feature rich SDK that lets other developers easily access your app's functionality / services. I have done this for Snapr and Loc8te (see my portfolio below [1]). Feel free to get in touch. My portfolio and email are listed below.

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

* Picking up AngularJS

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!)

What iOS or Android apps have you built? Can't see any on your site.

SEEKING WORK, remote or shorter on-site gigs. I'm based in Minneapolis.

I like solving hard problems. The point of computers is making life as a human easier, and my favorite thing is taking something complicated and difficult and making it simple, working, inutitive, powerful.

In the past I worked for a Big Finance Company, wrangling Enterprise Java and big databases, making complicated business rules tractable with domain-specific languages, and turning systems into performant and consistent versions of their former selves. I know a few different languages but am best with Java and Clojure.

Here's my current pet project, a context-free grammar parser with an intuitive front-end: https://github.com/eightnotrump/clearley

Web: http://dangoldin.com/

GitHub: https://github.com/dangoldin

Primarily work in Python, Django, R, jQuery. Spent years writing all sorts of queries in PostgreSQL and MySQL.

SEEKING WORK — Portland, OR; Remote; West Coast US Travel

My specialties are - iOS applications - Ruby-based web applications

It's the double whammy special when you have an iOS app that works with a server — you can have the same developer build both!

Other types of projects are considered, too, but with less frequency. I have a decade plus of experience in all types of environments with all types of languages: Android, Java, J2EE, .NET, Python, PHP...

On a tight budget and need a prototype, pronto? I've got a "Bang it out!" coupon with your name on it.

SEEKING WORK - Brooklyn - Remote or Local - Part Time Ideally

I am a full stack Ruby and Javascript developer. The majority of my experience is in Rails but I've played around with or done small projects in other frameworks such as Sinatra, Backbone, Ember and Node.




SEEKING WORK, SF Bay area, remote perfectly fine!

I built and run http://jsonip.com. 10+ million requests a day and counting.

I also created Helium-css, https://github.com/geuis/helium-css.

I'm a javascript engineer mainly these days. Most of the work I've done for the last year or two has ranged from Node.js on the server to heavy client-side javascript.

I have a heavy node.js background, as well as a solid amount of practical working experience with Python/Django.

I also have a lot of client-side experience when talking about html5, advanced css3 features, mobile optimization, etc, and years of building quality code that even works well in browsers like IE6+.

I'm open to a wide range of contract work, whether it be small term to big projects.

Resume available on request.

Github resume: http://resume.github.io/?geuis Github: https://github.com/geuis/ Site: http://trending.us Top 3 current projects: http://jsonip.com, http://popped.at, https://github.com/geuis/helium-css

SEEKING WORK New York based consultant; I do digital distribution strategies, mostly for media companies. I frequently work on product design, social media integration for major websites and broadcast entities as well as identifying new startups to bring to clients that solve legacy media problems. Currently working on a tv series. http://kategardiner.com / http://dstl.it


We are looking for a person/team who can develop an e-commerce website from scratch for a line of Brazilian childrens' clothes. We have a local (Brazilian) brand and want to offer our customers a world class online shopping experience.

The site will need to have the standard set of e-commerce functionalities that US online shoppers are familiar with. We are thinking of something similar to www.gymboree.com, but on a smaller scale--initially only in the low hundreds of items for sale.

Some of the desired functionality includes:

--"completing the look" (suggesting matching pieces) --"you might like..." (based on what the customer has seen or purchased) --"other customers who bought this also bought" --sort by age, collection, size, category (dresses, pants, etc.), etc. --high quality product photos with zoom --shopping cart, payment processing, etc. --smooth, attractive and intuitive user interface.

The key is to replicate the world class e-commerce experience (especially for apparel) that is available to US shoppers and to make it available to our customers in Brazil.

If interested, please send me a short proposal, including estimated time to completion and ballpark price. Obviously this would just be to establish a general order of magnitude and would not be a binding commitment. Happy to discuss further.

SEEKING WORK - Remote or Austin, TX.

I work in both building things and breaking things. I specialize in Ruby and JavaScript, but my side projects include:

* Reverse engineering the Vine API via mitmproxy and pulling the AWS secret key out of the iOS app via gdb and a little C: http://www.gironda.org/2013/03/03/digging-in-the-vineyard-pa...

* Exploring an issue in a Rails application all the way from JavaScript to debugging the Linux kernel over a serial port: http://www.gironda.org/2013/04/26/from-asset-precompilation-...

Recent production work involved instrumenting a Rails app to provide metrics to statsd, performing MySQL optimization, standing up a Jenkins CI instance using Chef, and beating a test suite back into shape.

You can find some of my code on my GitHub profile (https://github.com/gabrielg), and more of my writing as well as a resume on my website at http://www.gironda.org/. I'd love to hear from you — email gabriel@gironda.org if you think we can work together.

SEEKING WORK - Remote or NYC - Python/Django/Flask/Mongo

I am also available for random small jobs like upgrading flash video sites to HTML5 video for iPad compatibility.

I can make computers do what you want.



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.)

My last consulting assignment 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.

References from previous clients are available on request.

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!

Love the approach, but fyi your blog link is broken.

Thanks for the kind words.

Posterous went down and now I just have to transition to Octopress successfully!

SEEKING WORK - remote only. Location: Quakertown, PA.

Boy this is a long list, isn't it? I commend you for the effort it takes to get through all of the entries here. You're putting quite a bit of work into making sure you find the right help for you.

What if, through all of the effort you're putting in, you found a connection so reliable that you would never have to repeat the work you're doing now?

Your time certainly is more valuable doing something other than searching HN for freelancers.

How productive are you right now, really?

I run a software team and that wants to be the last software company you'll ever have to work with.

I'm looking for a long-term relationship with you, be it with active projects or not. I don't want you to ever have to spend hours reading lists like this again. Your time is worth so much more.

We have years of experience solving difficult problems and enjoy using Ruby and Rails to help solve problems quickly. We have several years working with Rails, but more importantly we've developed quality control processes that allow us to ensure a high quality of what we produce, regardless of the technology we use to do it.

In the coming years, technology will change and the right tech choice for you might be something else. When that time comes, you'll be happy that our processes are portable and will move to support the shiny new tech and continue to provide you with a consistent level of quality.

I want to get to know you.

Read more about me and my team on our website here: http://www.reenhanced.com/

Or, give me a call on my cell phone: (215) 804-9408

I would love to talk to you directly, M-F 9-5 EST.

Let's make this the last time you have to spend hours searching for programming help.

Thanks, Nick

Hey. I am a recent grad and a full-stack developer. I work with Rails and Java and have done work for clients using popular CMS solutions.

Think of me as your CTO with a tight deadline.

I specialise in backend systems and bug fixing. I will write your backend following best practices and make it easy for you to scale features in the long run.

Contact details in my profile.


I am running a two man web, print and iOS agency (me coding, my partner moving pixels). We are located in Heidelberg and Leipzig / Germany.

I have been a freelancer for 10 years. I prefer Django and Python but I also have shipped projects with Ruby (Sinatra, RoR), C++ and PHP (Wordpress). Server administration was and still is part of my daily life as writing solid, test covered code and doing the usual frontend work.

My partner studies printing technologies and joined me after finishing her apprenticeship as digital media designer, as one of the three best graduates in her year. Her daily work includes designing logos and brands (business cards, catalogs,...) and making the things I build pretty.

We typically work with freelancers and small businesses but also realized big projects for international clients.

If you are interested in working with us - or one of us - you can send us an email info@blazeit.de


I've got past full-stack experience in Django. My most recent experience was being cofounder in a bootstrapped startup where I put together the entire platform (including frontend, consumable API backend, and browser extension) from scratch. I'm strongest doing backend work in Python (especially for Django) -- anything from message passing middleware to RESTful API services to test suites to data modeling to data ingestion and sanitization. However, I can handle frontend if needed as well, and can design a page that looks pretty (though I would not consider myself a full designer or information architect).


Backend: Python, Django, South, PostgreSQL, Couchbase, Celery, TastyPie, django-unittest

Frontend: HTML, CSS, JavaScript/CoffeeScript using jQuery, bootstrap, underscore.js

Deployment: Fabric, Boto, nginx, AWS, EC2, ELB, EBS

Design: Illustrator, Bootstrap, CSS, HTML

We are looking to add a capable developer to our team. We're based in New York, but the position is for a remote freelancer.

What we do: Mobile apps for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.

What we're looking for: Someone who can get stuff done without much handholding. Lots of "proof-of-concept" work. Lots of iOS<->Android<->BlackBerry ports. Lots of custom UI work.

This is a part-time, ongoing position, meaning that, for now, we're looking to fill about 20-30 hours of work per week, where the work is not necessarily tied to one specific project.

SEEKING WORK - Chicago - Remote OK

Two friends and I have started a software development consultancy. I still don't know if the freelancer thread is an acceptable place to advertise, but our clients have all been non-tech organizations and I would like to do more work with the HN crowd (it was always a blast in my solo days), which is why I'm posting here.

We are two programmers and a designer primarily doing web development (with a focus on content/marketing and single-page apps), but we have some iOS skill between us and wouldn't be opposed to putting it to use.

We don't have a website up yet (too busy working), but you can email me at mvz@mvz.so to chat.


Looking for an experienced iOS developer with deep server knowledge for a paid project. Node+Ruby preferred. Game center experience a plus as well. Design not required. If you've also built for Android that's a plus, but not a requirement. I always like to establish new relationships and am currently testing out a short term project. If it works out for the both of us, follow up projects may be offered. Location is irrelevant, but I have a tight timeline!

Figured I'd try this one with the HN crowd before elsewhere!

Please send links to your apps and contact info with availability and rate range to my HN name on iCloud.

Where should I send my links?

I am very good at working with other people's code. If you have some orphaned programs where the developer no longer works with you and nobody wants to support them without a rewrite, I can help you fix bugs or add features without the expense of a complete redo.

Contact me: nissimk on gmail.


Full stack developer, primarily in .net/SQL Server. I particularly enjoy front end work (js/jQuery/Bootstrap etc). I have also done a number of Wordpress projects and am getting more familiar with PHP and mySQL.

I have over 15 years experience in with all kinds of applications from enterprise systems to simple web sites. I also have project management and team lead experience.

I refuse to write "seeking work" in capital letters under my real name but I might as well throw my hat in. New York-based, remote is fine. Travel is fine if compensation merits it and it doesn't interfere with other jobs.

What I am I good at? Machine learning, statistical reasoning, game design, technical writing, architecture and design, and functional programming. I also know organization dynamics at a deep level even though I wouldn't recommend myself for a full-time management spot (hence my increasing interest in freelance; I'll have to escape the manage-or-be-managed corporate world before 40).

I don't have much front-end experience but I'm interested in picking it up. My preferred languages are Scala, Clojure, and Ocaml but I'll use the right tool for the job, and I can learn extremely quickly so that shouldn't be a problem.

I'm good at everything but subordination. No, I'm not constitutionally insubordinate-- I follow rules that make sense, like traffic laws-- but I refuse to be in the abusive power dynamic that sometimes comes with a payment relationship. I will only work for you if you see me as a full and equal partner; I bring the know-how and solve your problems, you bring the capital and problems to solve.

Oh, if you know anything about me, I don't lack for honesty. I'm a pretty blunt guy (constitutionally; not by choice) and I think that has advantages for you, even if it's bad for me.

michael.o.church at Google's email service.

Dear Lord; you must be a treat to work with.

LOL. Couldn't stop laughing after reading this.

I was about to put "Made Of Awesome" on my resume but I couldn't decide whether to put in under Skills or Experience. Problem is, it's kinda both.

'I refuse to write "seeking work" in capital letters under my real name'

SEEKING WORK is not the same as OUT OF WORK. The former admits cases where an opportunistic person with a job is looking for something to do on off-hours.

Have you considered doing training, or doing a speaking circuit? I think a lot of companies that are interested in open allocation would hire you to come speak, or help them hash out the details. (I'm just not sure how you find those companies)

I hear google sometimes hires speakers :)

Yes. I wouldn't mind doing some part-time culture consulting, but I also want to keep my tech skills sharp (and, beyond that, improve them). Then again, most corporate jobs are just as dulling to the tech skill set as non-technical work, so maybe I should really look into it.

Did any work come from this? I'm curious if the freelancer thread works.
