I’m Looking For Freelance Work (Resolved)

Posted on:

We're rapidly approaching the season where I begin to take side work, and I'm officially on the hunt for the right clients to collaborate on WordPress projects over the next several months.

My ideal clients are usually teams that are managing one, or more complex WordPress implementations, who need someone to help them with the technical aspects of their site. This has historically come in many forms, but here's a few common ones I see, paired with relevant case studies:

An agency who recently inherited a new website, and needs a site audit to help understand how the site works.

A custom integration with an external service, usually using a REST API. I've done several of these over the years.

WordPress Plugin Feature Implementations

  • My resume shows a storied history in working for plugin companies, where I played integral parts in feature implementations.

Here's a few nice things people have said about me in the past:

Alex and I have a long history of working together on different projects, and once I ran into a wall working with the third-party API mentioned in this post, I knew it was time to call in the big guns. These kinds of integrations aren’t my core strength as a developer, but I knew it’d be a good ‘snack’ for Alex.

In my career, I’ve found that it sometimes isn’t what you know, but how fast you can find the answer. In this case, the answer happened to be Alex’s expertise. It’s also important to be humble and admit when another developer’s expertise in a specific area trumps yours.

[Alex] was definitely opinionated about the architecture. We brought him a problem that definitely had some constraints on it and we didn’t have to go back and forth with him a lot about how the thing should be built. He understood the problem and suggested a solution. From there we were able to discuss some specifics and make some minor adjustments but overall, that initial architecture is what we ended up shipping and that saved us a lot of time.

Update

Shortly after publishing this, I was able to find the work that I needed to keep me entertained during the Winter. It turned out to be less than I expected since Ricardo was wrecked. As a result, I could only take one small client briefly, and pretty much everything else went into dealing with getting settled in. Thanks everyone!
