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

SEEKING WORK - Eindhoven, The Netherlands / Remote

Experienced software developer with team lead experience and a hacker attitude. I'm a full-stack web developer and embedded software engineer with 12 years of professional experience doing small and large projects with a large variety of platforms and technologies.

Specialized in C#/.NET in recent years, but unlike too many .NET devs, my scope is not limited to Microsoft's "technologie du jour". I'm familiar with Microsoft's standard technologies as well as the great open source alternatives out there. Experience with making cross-platform mobile apps with Xamarin (MonoTouch / MonoDroid) and with making .NET software that runs great on Mono/Linux.

Proficient in:

    * C# / .NET 
    * C / C++ (Win32 API, microcontrollers, Linux)
    * JavaScript / TypeScript / CoffeeScript
    * PHP
    * Python
    * Ruby
Most of my work has been unfortunately closed-source proprietary stuff, but for a peek at my code, see:

https://github.com/eteeselink/fakethat (down-to-earth C# mocking framework)

https://github.com/eteeselink/YieldMachine (C# state machines)

https://github.com/eteeselink/cdhere (little C++ console tool that talks to Windows Explorer)

Something of a CV can be found at http://www.linkedin.com/in/egbert.

I can work on-site in the Netherlands, or remotely. I started freelancing only recently, so my portfolio isn't as well presented as yet I'd like it to. Nevertheless, you can find contact info on my brand new placeholder website at http://superset.eu.

I think you may be a good fit with these guys. Not sure how far Eindhoven is from Amsterdam but worth a try:


Hey cool, thanks for helping me along! Q42 sound very cool indeed (and not at all too far), so I'll be checking them out.

Good luck! :)


Lambda is an invite-only marketplace for developers, designers, and entrepreneurs to find high-paying, fulfilling work. http://getlambda.com/

We just launched and are a bit different than the other talent marketplaces:

  - Invite-only. Don't compete with low-quality talent in a race to the bottom.
  - Flexible commitment — work as few as 10 hours per week, or as much as 40 hours per week.
  - $100/hr minimum rate.
  - We're developers too. Every project is hand-screened.
If that's appealing, send me an email at andrew [@] getlambda [dot] com.

Freelancers with side projects or startups are especially welcome!

Your site is down.

SEEKING WORK - London or remote.

Here are some things I've worked on lately:

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

Concise pattern matching and parsing - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4902219 (now getting a call-site compiler in https://github.com/jamii/strucjure/tree/compiled )

Parallelizing a constraint solver - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6140653

Dev tools for writing gnome extensions in clojurescript - https://github.com/jamii/lein-gnome

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 and I learn fast.

I'm also interested in partnering with other freelance developers to cover the whole stack.

Heroku, Firebase, NodeJS, javascript

Create a Heroku add-on created for our SaaS.

BromBone (http://www.brombone.com) is a service that makes client-side javascript driven websites (AngularJS, Ember.js, Backbone.js, etc) crawlable by Google. We process all the websites pages with PhantomJS and save the result. When Google crawls the page, the website just has to proxy the snapshot from our server and send the file to Google-bot.

We need to create a Heroku add-on so that people can signup for BromBone form within Heroku. This process is well documented by Heroku.

Currently BromBone does have any login/auth system for users. The project would also involve creating that system. Probably using Firebase's Auth system, although this is still up for discussion.

Willing to work with someone working nights and weekends, or with someone who wants to knock it out quicker working full days. Would prefer to per project or milestone payments rather than hourly.

The ideal candidate is someone who has previously created a Heroku add-on and/or used Firebase's Auth system. However, that is not a requirement.

If you're interested, please email chad@brombone.com

SEEKING WORK - Remote (UK based, travel negotiable)

At risk of comparing myself to a fake horse, I'm something of the unicorn - happy working on any aspect of web dev, from the design & HTML to the bloody guts on the back end.

Been in the game for many years now so I've picked up a thing or two. I can also help with SEO-friendliness, things that convert from experience and so on.

Looking for some new and interesting projects to get stuck into. Ideal would some kind of retainer for ongoing work.

* Front end: HTML, CSS, JS. Responsive-ness, Wordpress themes, etc-de-etc

* Backend: PHP (mainly Codeigniter lately but can turn my hand to most things)

* iOS/Android app dev. Mainly use Titanium but have worked with Phonegap

* Git or mercurial is fine with me

* API-a-plenty, AWS, Stripe, Mailgun, MLS etc etc

Just to round me off a bit I've also worked in Perl, C, Delphi, Lua and AMOS(!) in the past, and whilst I'm not looking for work in those, it hopefully shows I can pick up new things and adapt as required (currently getting an AngularJS fix).

My rates aren't exactly comparable with offshore elance devs but are pretty good.

My site for what it's worth: http://pitbot.net

SEEKING WORK - remote/contractual

Proficient in: Objective-C and iOS / UX Design (Photoshop and Illustrator)

Semi-proficient in: Ruby, Rails and Heroku backends

I've got about 2.5 years of iOS and Objective-C development under my belt; I work full-time as an iOS engineer right now. I'm an atypical dev - I also have about 8 years of graphic design experience, a BA in Art, and experience branding a few different businesses (beyond my own apps). For the past 7 months or so I've been learning Rails, Ruby and Heroku's dev workflow for creating the backends for my own apps as well as freelancing for others doing the same thing. I'm not a great Web Designer, and to be honest it's a little frustrating at times, so I try to keep my Ruby freelance work focused on the backend data requests/response engine versus making a full-blown web app.

Some iOS projects I've developed and designed:

SEEKING WORK - New York City / USA

A decent amount of info is on my LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=20084&trk=tab_pro

email on LinkedIn: lawrence@krubner.com

Short summary:

In the mid 90s, helped with Mac office automation with Applescript, then got into Perl, then PHP. Starting in 2000, worked with PHP/MySql/Javascript for several years, created a CMS, and with 2 friends, started a business to commercialize CMS/blog software, competing with TypePad. Closed down in 2006, but continued to work with same friends, built video sites such as http://www.ihanuman.com/store.php . Lead team including Flash programmer, designer, QA, sysadmin, etc.

Also worked at catalog company and used the new Adobe API to use Javascript to automate Photoshop/InDesign workflow. Wrote a short book about the API: http://www.cafepress.com/adobescripting . For awhile taught classes to aspiring designers about the API.

Used Ruby/Rails for projects in 2006 and 2011 and 2013.

Used PHP/Symfony framework for most projects from 2008 to 2011.

Launched http://www.wpquestions.com/ .

Have mostly worked with Clojure for the last year.

I am devoting this autumn to working on my own website, so I am not available for full time work. If you have a specific project you'd like me to tackle, I'd be happy to help, especially if it will likely take less than a month.

NOT SEEKING, just throwing in a joke because i'm feeling so: One day a man goes to a pet shop to buy a parrot. The assistant takes the man to the parrot section and asks the man to choose one. The man asks, ''How much is the yellow one?'' The assistant says, ''$2000.'' The man is shocked and asks the assistant why it's so expensive. The assistant explains, ''This parrot is a very special one. He knows typewriting and can type really fast.'' ''What about the green one?'' the man asks. The assistant says, ''He costs $5000 because he knows typewriting and can answer incoming telephone calls and takes notes.'' ''What about the red one?'' the man asks. The assistant says, ''That one's $10,000.'' The man says, ''What does HE do?'' The assistant says, ''I don't know, but the other two call him boss.''

SEEKING WORK -- Remote or local. I'm based out of nowhere in particular, and can travel to interesting places for short-term on-site contracts.

Generally, I do Java/Clojure, backend and full stack development. In a past life I wrangled enterprise Java for a major finance company, working on performance, integrity, and scalability for a trade processing app handling tens of millions of trades daily. I've also done work with parsing, domain specific languages, full-stack web development, custom high-speed message queues, and security and encryption. I like to solve hard problems.

SEEKING WORK - Remote, based in Germany

I do custom electronics and robotics/automation projects, focused on going from idea to prototype quickly. I can rapidly prototype mechanics (with 3d printing), electronics, and firmware and make things work. Also happy to consult on feasibility or implementation of existing projects.

I have a very strong preference for OSHW work, and this is reflected in my rates (massive discount for OSHW projects, except for NC-licensed crap).

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

I am a Ruby and Javascript developer. The majority of my experience has been with Rails but I've played around with or done small projects in other frameworks such as Sinatra, Backbone, Ember and Node. My Rails experience has been of the "full stack" variety which for me has meant writing Ruby code as well as front end code in JS/Coffeescript, jQuery, HAML, & CSS/SCSS. I've also handled some ops responsibilities utilizing Heroku and AWS but I don't really think of myself as a DevOps guy, more of a developer that has worked on small teams and worn many hats. In addition to the straightforward code side of things, I do my best to bring a passion for learning and good craftsmanship to the projects I work on.

What I'm reading right now: Coffeescript Ristretto by Reginald Braithwaite, An Introduction to Functional Programming Through Lambda Calculus, Designing Design by Kenya Hara, N+1 Issue 17




Located in the Southwest, seeking a remote position with flexible hours (doing a welding certification for a year, looking to work full time or close to that but I can't do a typical 9-5).

- +5 years experience working as a PHP dev. Spending a lot more time with Python and Go lately and would feel comfortable doing production level projects in Python soon. Fluent in Javascript (vanilla or jQuery) as well and up to date on HTML5 and happy to do frontend, although I excel at large sized backend projects.

- Experience with Zend, Yii, Symphony, Wordpress,... always eager to pick up new things and I'll make sure to fanatically learn whatever framework(s) needed.

- I write solid OOP code, follow MVC best practices.

- Production experience with Subversion and Mercurial (and adding Git to that would be a breeze).

- Very security conscious, at all levels of the stack. Looking to expand on that and become a coder/pentester hybrid over the next year.

- +8 years running Linux exclusively. Very comfortable around a command line. Happy to set up, secure, troubleshoot and maintain any server. Lots of CentOS production level experience. I've saved the day more than once diagnosing and fixing app performance issues that were a combination of server and code layer problems :)

- Fluent in English, Dutch and Spanish. Euro expat with permanent residency in the US.

- Not a drone, always happy to contribute ideas and to respectfully offer alternatives without being a buttmunch about it or losing sight of project leadership/track.

- Good communicator, I have a good knack for translating nerd speak into understandable English (or Spanish or Dutch). Not afraid of people either, you could actually put me in a room with customers or the marketing department without resulting in long awkward silences.

- Experience working in teams or solo, equally happy doing either one. I can be relied on to work without for months on end if needed without wasting too much time on supervision, but I'm never afraid to ask to feedback or info when needed.

Looking preferably for a small team or a single position. Looking for something long term if possible, not the job hopper type.

Happy to provide code samples and/or do a test run together.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Northeast Ohio, US / Remote

We're in search of an expert Drupal backend developer and server admin to add to our team. This position is not for a Drupal themer or front end developer. This position is not for someone that is satisfied building cookie cutter solutions.

- Fluent in PHP, Javascript (jQuery), MySQL Admin, etc

- Obsessed with doing things the Drupal way (using Drupal APIs whenever possible)

- Comfortable building custom modules that tie into external APIs

- More than capable of managing a large Drupal multi-site server configuration and motivated to see it operate as fast as possible

- Wouldn't dream of building anything outside of a git repo and understands the importance of branching often (loving Github is a bonus)

- Able to take a scope of project requirements and estimate its cost accurately

SEEKING WORK - Remote or Madrid or Berlin

I'm an experienced (10+ years) software engineer looking for additional project work. What motivates me is to deliver software that works! Finding simple solutions to complex problems, honing my craft as a software developer every day.

On client projects I have mostly done Java development work on SQL and NoSQL dbs. For prototyping and my side projects I'm using Python with Flask and Django. Recently I'm into Clojure and would love some work in that area. But I see myself language/tool agnostic and believe there is a best tool for every task. I love learning new things and believe I can get up to speed quickly in any tech environment.

I'm based in Madrid, Spain and looking for remote work or based in Madrid. I'd be also available to work in Berlin as I'm there quite often and might be interested to stay for at least a short term gig or remote with regular travel.

More information can be found here: http://www.bernhardwenzel.com/work (started this blog recently so not a lot there yet). I speak German, English and Spanish.

As is pretty obvious from the responses, bot needs tweaked not to post on a Sunday.

Could you elaborate on that?

He might mean that it should occur on the first Monday of the month (vs the 1st) so that there are many more eyeballs.

But he said there was something apparent from the responses, like there was a quality problem of some sort. There are over 50 posts in this thread, a lot of them from HN users with relatively high karma.

Yes, the point of the thread is to match work seekers with providers. Clearly nobody is at work today, and the only people posting are seekers. There's only 3 "seeking freelancer" replies out of 61 posts

You might have a point. I counted six of them so far in this thread, other threads seem to average at about 12. But then again, this is only a few hours old. Looks like startup people are hanging out here on weekends :)


What sets me apart from the rest?

Simple. My focus is on delivering what you want. When you want it.

Professional experience with Python, Django, Flask, Ruby, Rails, Sinatra, Jquery, .NET, JAVA, and more. My skills are all around, and am able to work on the backend as well as on the front end.

Past projects have had me building:

- E-commerce platforms (with stripe/paypal integration)

- Advertising Networks

- Automation

- Web Scrapping

- Telephony systems (with twilio integration)

- Business intelligence dashboards (with d3.js and justgauges.js)

- Multiple API based systems

If you need a responsible freelancer. Who will not run away with your money. Who will complete the project as required. Then you should contact me through my page on: http://bliti.github.io

While you are there, check out some of my latest open source projects. Most are new, but you should make note of them. And yes, I am an open source contributor.

Agencies are welcome to inquire.

Have a full-time position? Let's talk.


PS. I deliver. (:

The Apportable SDK cross-compiles iOS apps to Android, without changing the original Objective-C or C++ code. Games powered by Apportable have risen to the top of the charts and delighted millions of users through the Google Play Store, Amazon Appstore, and the Humble Android Bundle. Recently Bjork used Apportable to bring her Biophilia music album to Android: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6059844

Here at Apportable, we have an opportunity to port a game for very successful iOS developer who wants to use our SDK to take their app to Android. This is a local only position - you'll be located with our team here in San Francisco.

This would be approximately a six week contract, starting ASAP, and can be renewed.

No Android experience required (you'll be using the Apportable SDK). iOS or C++ game development experience will be helpful. Familiarity with OpenGL will help as well.

Interested? Send along your resume to jobs+hnfreelancer@apportable.com

Interesting, why are you against remote employment?

This particular job posting sounds really remote friendly - you even will test how your potential clients will use your SDK, and those aren't going to relocate to your location to use it successfully, no?

1. Private colocated clouds (Simple example: https://gist.github.com/rockymadden/5561377):

  - Major cost reduction over services like AWS and Heroku.
  - Custom built hardware for your exacting needs.
  - Setups allow you to grow with your hardware.
  - Work with local (to you) and remote datacenters to deploy private cloud(s)
  near you, via colocation (10RU leases at 2 to 3 DCs works well).
  - International datacenter deployment possible at a fairly minimal cost.
  - 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.
  - Minimal disruptions to cash-flows.
  - Numerous cost reducing strategies for much more dramatic savings over the example.
  Seriously, if you apply concepts like eventual consistency, load
  distribution/offloading, and understand the trade-offs between 9s and $ it
  gets super interesting.
  - I can help you setup the entire stack (e.g. hardware, hypervisors,
  automated allocation/deployment, automated migrations, maintenance strategies, etc).
  - If you have a solid engineering team, the maintenance of such a setup is much less than
  you might expect (i.e. ~3 hours a week). No need to hire someone.
2. Machine learning, nlp, ocr, expert systems:

  - Leveraging Clojure, Scala, and Haskell.
  - Multiple 42u racks can be devoted to your jobs during/after development.
3. More about me (Website: http://rockymadden.com/):

  - Freelancing is only done a few months per year, as I run my own successful
  data-centric platforms (going on 7-years now). Platform income is
  passive, so I can slip away a few months a year for interesting

SEEKING WORK - SF Bay Area - Remote or Local - Long or Short Term Projects

I'm an expert at creating APIs and building client applications (browser-based and mobile apps) powered by APIs.

API Development - I've designed, built, and scaled APIs for many different application profiles, from large complex data models, event subscription architecture, high transaction volume (25K requests/second), to simple REST APIs. I have a good amount of experience analyzing data models and use cases to determine API structure, architecture, and recommended implementation. I know the ins and outs of REST vs RPC, JSON vs XML, and hypermedia vs traditional. I've implemented APIs using Rails, Node.js, and Java platforms. Bottom line - if you need an API developed, I can take you through the process from start to finish.

Single-Page JS App Development - I've led development on multiple single-page JavaScript apps in both desktop and mobile environments. I have significant JavaScript experience and have built full applications from scratch using Backbone.js and Ember.js. Recently I've been working with Balanced Payments to build a web interface for their payments platform using Ember.js. The whole project is open source - check it out! https://github.com/balanced/balanced-dashboard

Mobile App Development - I've deployed multiple apps across iOS and Android platforms for phones and tablets. I'm experienced in both native (iOS, Android) and mobile cross-platform HTML (Sencha Touch, JQuery Mobile) development.

Traditional Web Development - While I've spent most of my time lately working on APIs and API-driven apps, I also have ten years of experience doing traditional server-side web development. If you need a Rails or Java generalist to build a product, augment your team or maintain existing code, get in touch!

Located in the Southwest, seeking a remote position with flexible hours (doing a welding certification for a year, looking to work full time or close to that but I can't do a typical 9-5).

- +5 years experience working as a PHP dev. Spending a lot more time with Python and Go lately and would feel comfortable doing production level projects in Python soon. Fluent in Javascript (vanilla or jQuery) as well and up to date on HTML5 and happy to do frontend, although I excel at large sized backend projects. - Experience with Zend, Yii, Symphony, Wordpress,... always eager to pick up new things and I'll make sure to fanatically learn whatever framework(s) needed. - I write solid OOP code, follow MVC best practices. - Production experience with Subversion and Mercurial (and adding Git to that would be a breeze). - Very security conscious, at all levels of the stack. Looking to expand on that and become a coder/pentester hybrid over the next year. - +8 years running Linux exclusively. Very comfortable around a command line. Happy to set up, secure, troubleshoot and maintain any server. Lots of CentOS production level experience. I've saved the day more than once diagnosing and fixing app performance issues that were a combination of server and code layer problems :) - Fluent in English, Dutch and Spanish. Euro expat with permanent residency in the US. - Not a drone, always happy to contribute ideas and to respectfully offer alternatives without being a buttmunch about it or losing sight of project leadership/track. - Good communicator, I have a good knack for translating nerd speak into understandable English (or Spanish or Dutch). Not afraid of people either, you could actually put me in a room with customers or the marketing department without resulting in long awkward silences. - Experience working in teams or solo, equally happy doing either one. I can be relied on to work without for months on end if needed without wasting too much time on supervision, but I'm never afraid to ask to feedback or info when needed.

Looking preferably for a small team or a single position. Looking for something long term if possible, not the job hopper type.

Happy to provide code samples and/or do a test run together.


Marketing Consultant. I will move your conversion rate up.

What I can do for you: email marketing, landing page marketing (includes copy, wire-framing for variations, design/html), a/b testing (landing pages, emails, ads), setup campaign for blog give-aways, PR mentions and/or affiliates.

Other activities may be included, but depends on what you currently have and/or approve based on my recommendations.

Work can be as one-time project or ongoing monthly partnership. Work is tracked using a monthly KPI sheet to watch over conversion rate plus related metrics.

SEEKING WORK - Remote (UK based, Travel Possible)

Application & Customer Support Technician

Is your SaaS app growing & you want to continue providing awesome support for your users? Do you want to provide equally fast responses for your users in East Coast or European time zones?

My experience in application support will allow you to spend more time proactively improving your product, instead of reactively responding to e-mails, calls & questions.

I will :-

* Provide responsive friendly technical support

* Aim to delight customers, help them to get the best from the product

* Manage support requests from all platforms (e-mail, phone, twitter, forums etc)

* Use metrics & data to improve, refine & automate processes

* Identify patterns & trends that can lead to cost savings or increased profit

* Focus on efficiency, simplicity & scalability

* Demonstrate benefits & features to potential customers

* Integrate & setup new users

* Create 'living' documentation that is continually improved

* Explain complex technology to all levels of technical ability

* Train additional support staff

* Deconstruct issues to find a swift resolution

* Aim to turn complaints or negative feedback into a positive experience for the customer.

* Work closely with development to relay user feedback

* Build a reputation of great support for the company.

My background :-

* Degree in CS & Info Systems from a UK University

* 4 years as a consultant support technician

* 2 years working as Field Support in education technology

* Worked in a wide variety of industries, banking, ecommerce, retail, health, engineering, telecoms, recruitment.

* Experience with HTML/CSS, basic PHP & mySQL tweaks, SEO, PPC campaigns, metric analysis, WordPress administration, database design, data entry & cleansing, content creation, photoshop, photography.

* Hands on experience with Active Directory, Windows Server environments (migrations, consolidation, decommissioning), VMWare, backups, SAN, NAS, firewalls, SharePoint.

Would love to expand development experience in either Python or RoR.

Highlights :-

* Saved a company over £200k per year with a 15 minute presentation to executives. My suggestions are currently being implemented company wide.

* Performed a time-in-motion analysis at a mail order company. Identified a bottleneck that limited the number of orders that could be shipped per day. Developed a simple macro that cut order prep time from 15mins per order to 2 seconds.

* Developed a team productivity database to collate holiday, task & phone data. This provided a productivty score for employees to use in their reviews & an executive summary for their manager. Previously the manager was spending 1 day per month to collate this information manually.

* Wrote a business plan that won a place on a business incubator scheme.

I'm passionate about providing great support and increasing the range of technologies I am proficient in.

I'm flexible on hours & interested to hear of any opportunities.

Please feel free to drop me a line.
