Do you have an idea for an app, but you don't know how to make it a reality? Do you have an app, but need bugs fixed, features added, or other changes made? Do you have a team working on your app, but you need more people, or help getting a good process going, or they need help understanding modern techniques like TDD and pair programming?
Let The Codosaurus help! I offer custom software development services (especially remote part-time back-end Ruby on Rails staff-augmentation contracts), and will also consider other technology stacks (see the Skills page), a short commute from Fairfax (City) VA, brief work at 40 hours/week, taking on a whole small project solo, or temporary employment. (However, I am not open to "permanent" employment, changing careers, relocation, or spending months on the road.)
Unfortunately, I am booked solid for the foreseeable future, most likely until sometime in mid-2016. Watch this space -- or sign up on the "Email List Signup" page to be notified when I'm coming available again.
If you're ready, go ahead and tell me about your project. If you've still got questions, maybe it's one of these:
That depends on several factors. I start with a general rate of $180/hour, for a direct client, that I found myself, on a business-to-business basis. Then there are generous discounts for people who bring me the work (5%), staffing agencies (10%), and work on a W2 basis (15%). (Yes, you may combine them.) Further notes:
- The rate is negotiable . . . in both directions.
- I bill weekly, due in four weeks.
- I'm also willing to work for a daily or weekly rate, or on a retainer basis.
- Travel time counts, but predictable repeated travel (such as "commuting") can be rolled into the rate.
Mainly, companies with technology-based products or services. For example, if you run a web site that helps law offices manage their cases, yes... but if you are a law office, with home-grown case management software, no. You can find some examples on the clients page. If you're not sure if you fit, let's discuss it!
- Don't bother contacting me about Gannett, Bloomberg, Comcast, OnLife Health, or RBM Technologies. It's not necessarily anything against them, but there are contractual obligations, prior submissions, etc.
- I have an LLC, but am not incorporated. For a very good opportunity, I might consider jumping through those hoops.
- If you have more questions, just ask!
- If not, you should go ahead and hire me already!
