Available for contract opportunities

After a number of great years at my previous employer, I left my full-time job recently.

That means I am now available for contract work opportunities!

Who am I?

I’m a generalist software developer based in Sydney, Australia with 7 years experience, and have had successful stints both as a developer in a startup and as a consultant at an agency. I’m used to working with a variety of clients and teams, and a part of my job was liaising with clients and other stakeholders.

You can think of me as “mostly a backend developer”, but I’ve often had to work on the frontend as well.

Most of my experience has been in Python/Django with modern JavaScript (using frameworks like React, but often also plain JavaScript, and TypeScript). As for cloud infrastructure, most of my experience has been with AWS.

I’m not particularly married to any technology, and am completely willing to consider other languages and technologies.

I was also the one of the organisers of SyDjango (Sydney’s Django meetup group) where I helped organise the meetup events in the past few years. In addition, I volunteer at events aimed at helping beginners learn to code.

What I can do for you

Here’s a non-exhaustive list:

  • Build and deploy web services, and APIs
  • Create your prototype or MVP using rapid application development frameworks like Django
  • JavaScript development using frameworks like React
  • Automate your business processes with code
  • Set up infrastructure for web services on cloud providers like AWS
  • Mentor junior developers

If you have a business problem that you think technology can solve, or you already know what you need, please get in touch and I’d love to discuss how I can help.
