SEEKING WORK - London, on-site / remote

Jack-of-all-trades backend Python developer with a wide gamut of experience doing backend development work. Past work include: enterprise-scale release management systems; large-scale ETL and web scraping; business integration work; report generation and other RDBMS CRUD apps (Oracle, MSSQL, etc.); writing modelling software for the train industry; and much, much more.

I am often called upon to do esoteric, non-Web development tasks; be it integrating disparate systems or helping a business out with failing projects by picking up the slack and learning tools and domain knowledge on the fly.

I am also more than willing to work with non-Python languages.

Used to working in high-pressure, client-facing environments.

I am available for on-site work in central London and remote work elsewhere.

Contact me and we can talk on the phone about your business's needs (see profile.)

SEEKING FREELANCER - remote - One-time Wordpress hosting provider switch and migration help needed.

I need help choosing a more appropriate WordPress host and migrating my three sites to the new host. I currently use WP Engine and pay $99/month for three sties with less than 1,000 visitors per month combined.

Two of the sites are very small and straightforward blogs. They are czstrong.com and theladude.com The other site is my businesses website - cpustorage.com. I don't think it's very complex either.

The Job:

* Recommend a new hosting solution that is less than $50/month. The cheaper the better, as long as it's reliable and easy to manage and deploy to.

* Migrate my three websites to the new provider.

* Setup SSL on the signup page of cpustorage.com

* Teach me how to manage the site. I currently use Git Push to Deploy, so if the new host had that that'd be nice. Or, feel free to teach me an even easier way to deploy!

I would like to pay a flat-fee for the whole project. I don't care if it just takes you a couple hours to do it. I'm not familiar with how much I should be paying for this, so please provide me with a quote.

If you'd like to help me with this project, please email me with your quote and telling me a bit about your relevant experience. I created these three sites myself and set them all up so I can help you get this done as efficiently as possible.




Hi Chris,

I run http://www.ecowebhosting.co.uk - you could host those three sites under our Standard Package for £4.99 per month.

I'll email you with more details.


Your main obstacle, the real wildcard, is going to be WPEngine. They are not very proactive about helping people to leave.

SEEKING WORK - Remote/Chicago

Designer/Front-End Developer.

Best suited working with developers who know they need better design but don't know how to get from A to B. Also good working with design/dev/consulting agencies (experience with everything from two man shops to bigger firms like McKinsey and Edelman).

All work is done in the browser, meaning no time is wasted on Photoshop back-and-forth. Iteration is quick and actionable for everyone involved.

Specific skills: HTML, CSS, JavaScript. Can develop in: Meteor, WordPress. Familiar with: Ruby on Rails (asset pipeline) and Django.

All work is vc'd with Git. Comfortable working in an existing repo or starting from scratch.

I work on a day rate @ $600/day (8 hours). Also willing to bid on projects flat if the scope is both reasonable/fixed.

My background includes 4 university majors (Computer Science, Information Technology/Web Development, Multimedia Design and Media Arts). I have been developing web applications for nearly 9 years.

Although I usually spend most of my time building robust back-ends that can scale on commodity hardware, I'm a well rounded full stack web software engineer. I know the front-end side of things as much as I know the back-end side. I can code any type of UI using cross-browser, valid HTML5/ CSS3/JS quickly and robust.

I have an eye for good design, I can use an existing style guide and build new screens (design, usability, back-end, front-end) all entirely by myself.

I was a django early adopter. I have been using it as my primary web development framework since version 0.96. I have been developing applications (server, desktop and then webapps) in python since about 10 years ago.

A few sample projects I have worked on:

peakery.com crowdstir.com einztein.com championsound.com suggestionbox.com begreennow.com replyforall.com (http://www.treehugger.com/clean-technology/replyforalls-caus...)

Specialties: Python,django (early adopter), MySQL, PostgreSQL, Scalability, High-availability, Performance Optimizations, Cloud computing, System Administration, Linux, Debian, Ubuntu, Memcached, Large-Scale Caching, Key/Value stores, XHTML, CSS, JS, JQuery, Open source technologies, Rapid Prototyping, Usability, A/B testing, Remote project management, Remote hiring, Learning new technologies.

Here at yerdle, we have a gig opening up for a solo iOS UI developer for the next version of yerdle with our team here in San Francisco.

SEEKING WORK - Remote/NYC/Chicago - Extremely experienced designer and developer duo. We do soup to nuts web or mobile development with any level of scale and complexity and can pull together teams of developers and designers as necessary. We specialize in Ruby on Rails for web work, but we work with most other languages too, most recently Go. I was previously CTO at Boxcar and several other companies, and Jeff, the designer half has been a senior designer for over 10 years and has extensive design experience across mobile and web.

Some of our portfolio work available here: http://squaremill.com.

Areas of expertise:

Ruby on Rails

Javascript (backbone etc.)

Design, HTML, CSS, Responsive design

Go (wrote this NTLM implementation for Thomson Reuters -https://github.com/ThomsonReutersEikon/go-ntlm)



Some examples of previous work:






- Ten-fold+ cost reduction over services like AWS and Heroku is not uncommon for decent sized clients (spending 10k+ per month), amortized over three years. Plus, since the hardware is yours, you get to keep it after the three years. Sell it, throw it into a Hadoop cluster, Christmas present for the wife, whatever.

- Custom built hardware for your exacting needs (typically SuperMicro core). Setups allow you to grow with your hardware (e.g. blades need not have all nodes filled).

- Work with local datacenters to deploy private cloud(s) near you, via colocation (10RU leases at 2 to 3 DCs works well)

- Failover at all points, including the hardware, server, and datacenter levels

- SmartOS or Xen hypervisor based clouds with Ansible

- Pricing is directly related to how much your costs are reduced. In fact, most is observed on a per month basis the few following months after deployment which will match the cost savings. Minimal disruptions to cash-flows.


- Leveraging Scala, Clojure, and functional JavaScript

- Multiple 42u racks can be devoted to processing

- Retainer based: ~2k per day, ~8k per week, or ~30k per month.

I'm a backend developer – mostly rails but I'm open – with lots of production experience running systems of 30+MM users, 50+MM PVs, and hundreds of servers.

I will take your slow endpoints and make them faster, and I'll even show you how to do it yourselves!

SEEKING WORK, San Francisco, Remote ok

Hi, I run such projects as http://jsonip.com and Helium-css, https://github.com/geuis/helium-css. Currently looking for short or long term contracts.

Primary languages are javascript and python, with a history in php and a little bit of Objective-c. I have experience with many of the common client-side frameworks like Backbone, Knockout, etc.

I work with all levels of the stack, though my specialties are in client-side javascript and css and with js on the server with node.js.

As an example, jsonip.com is a node.js app that supports over 10 million requests a day.

I custom-build most of my servers and have setup applications on AWS and other VPS hosting providers. Building servers from scratch is not a specialty, but I know how to jump in and get things done.


5KMVP is seeking Rails developers that communicate well, and are able to work on very defined scopes - most of which are "startupy" in nature, but more importantly are not unwieldy.

You will learn about many different industries, and get exposed to the quirks of interesting markets.

Must be willing to build a complete app, from a well-defined scope of work, for a flat-fee.

Must Have:

- Demonstrable Rails 3 proficiency (i.e. a portfolio, github account, etc.)

- Be flexible and can figure stuff out

- Experience with Bootstrap, jQuery, CSS, ERB, etc.

Email: marc.gayle+railsdev@gmail.com with the subject line "Rails Dev for 5KMVP".

Include a portfolio (live links on Heroku preferrable, as well as a Github/Bitbucket account) and a reference to at least 1 successful client.

The most important thing I am looking for is clear, prompt, honest communication. If you can't do something, let me know...and we can work around it - if you are a good fit.

Junior web developer, looking to get some more experience. Finished my first site (bootstrap-y CSS due to time constraints) about a week ago. getwellbe.com

I have a full time job already, but would like to work on web projects on the side to broaden my portfolio and keep up with modern web techniques (again just trying to get experience here).

I'm experienced with Agile and this is my preferred style of work.

If you aren't so much concerned with getting your site out as fast as possible, I'd be able to work weekends with you to either help maintain a site you have already, or build one from the ground up! I wouldn't necessarily be expecting compensation, but if you think I do good work I'd love to make some money to pay for groceries every week :)

Shoot me an email @ bambielli@gmail.com if you'd be interested in talking more.

Hey man,

I am a junior developer too and unfortunately don't have any work for you, but just have two quick comments. First, your first site seems to be down right now. Second, from the articles I've read on here, it is never a good idea to offer work for free. I can't find the link to the article I read most recently, but basically it gives people the idea that your work isn't professional and they won't treat you as a professional. While most people on HN hopefully won't treat you that way, I think it is a good rule in general.

SEEKING FREELANCER: California. Remote OK as long as you communicate well and can Skype on occasion.

My luck with freelancers seems to go in streaks. Right now I'm having a bad streak as I've had a couple bail on me too early.

I need someone who can do Rails and Backbone and other JS. We are a photography-focused software company. I'd really like someone who can put in at least 5-10 hours a week for the next 2+ months. We have several other projects so this could be a consistent gig for the right person. I really need someone who can communicate well and follows through.

Please email erik[at]bigfolio[dot]com with some links to projects/GitHub and your hourly rate. If you ask for a retainer, I'll probably say "no" (sorry, just got burned on that).


Human/machine interface designer/developer. From scratch experience and interface design, from the napkin to nginx.

Frontend: HTML5 (Haml, Slim), CSS3 (Sass, Less), JavaScript (Vanilla, jQuery, Ember.js, Backbone.js, Handlebars). I've made contributions to Ember.js, and have written multiple 10k+ LOC apps - starting with 0.9 up to the lastest RC6. I have extensive knowledge of the challenges/strategies associated with moving an existing app to be client-side MVC.

Backend: Ruby, Rails, Mongo, Postgres

Design: Pencils, pens, paper, Photoshop


SPECIAL OFFER: I'm offering a free hour long Skype call to anyone who needs high level advice about any of the above. Contact is in my profile.

SEEKING WORK - Seattle, WA / Remote

Email: my hn username at gmail.com.

I'm a designer and developer experienced with Wordpress, Drupal, Django, and Rails/Sinatra. My personal goals are to be a great programmer in javascript and ruby, to learn java and objective-c, and to design beautiful interfaces for a wide range of platforms. I work daily at these goals. I have a strong passion for open source software and open civic data.

In late 2012 I created SeattleWiki.net and in January 2013 co-founded Code for Seattle, a local civic technology group with loose affiliations with Code for America. Along with Bruce Blood at the Seattle DoIT, I helped organize Hack for Change - Seattle, a hackathon held at City Hall on June 1.

I started learning CSS and HTML in 2005, started developing with Drupal in 2006, and have since developed sites with Wordpress, Django, Sinatra, Jekyll, and other content management systems and frameworks. I studied journalism and web development at The Evergreen State College, served as editor in chief of Evergreen's school newspaper, and worked as an advisor to the same school newspaper for 3 years after graduation. As an advisor I trained students on Drupal, CSS, HTML, Javascript, and broad web development/design/publishing concepts. I was responsible for maintaining the organization's websites, the web server, and the local file server.

Work examples:

http://codeforseattle.org The main site for the local civic technology organization, Code for Seattle. Created with Jekyll, CSS, HTML.

http://learnjs.io The site for a book I'm writing about javascript. Created with Jekyll, CSS, HTML.

http://superbigtree.com My "headquarters" website for freelancing and independent projects. Created with Jekyll, CSS, HTML. More work examples at http://superbigtree.com/projects

I strongly prefer working on open source projects and this is reflected in my rates. Email me at kliment@0xfb.com if you have a project in mind. If you don't, and just want to talk about any of these things, email me anyway.
