For some reason or another, you might want to hire me. If so, I might have directed you to this page. Please read the follwing carefully, since I will assume that the contents of this page are common knowledge to humans, that I am working with.
Please check back to this page before assigning me new tasks, since the rates presented on this page will be updated at least once a year.
First things first: I am not available for full-time-employment.
I am currently working in a very comfortable environment and I am not interested in any change of venue.
I can offer to help by consulting on cloud-automation and infrastructure projects. My weapons of choice here are Terraform/HCL, Ansible mostly on AWS or Azure.
The type of software projects I can realisticly help on is limited. I develop only in either procedural or functional fashion, utilizing languages that support that. I am an avid hater of (most) frameworks and object-oriented programming. This disqualifies me for almost all large-scale software development but makes me quite efficient for small productivity tools and event-based toolchains.
So if you want request-handlers, backup-scripts, data-movers or 'that piece of data in an excel looking like this' I can deliver safe, fast and reliable on a number of different platforms. If you would hire me for doing anything in a 10k+ lines Angular-project, you will likely drive us both crazy. I do not know, how you would manage to hire me for such a thing, but what do I know, maybe you are a very charming individual.
Any assignment must not exceed 16 hours per week. This is a contractual obligation with my employer, so even if it is my absolute dream task, I need to restrain myself to that timebox.
There is only one day during the work-week on which I can offer either on-site presence or calls and that is Wednesday.
All rates are hourly rates in Euro. I currently can only accept wire transfers, if that does not work for you, talk directly to me.
|Type of Work||net||incl. VAT|
I do offer a flat 50% discount on the above mentioned rates if one or more of the following rules apply:
- The ordering party is a charity organisation and offers a charitable donation receipt in the amount discounted.
- There is no NDA of any kind (I can freely talk about the project and reuse any code developed/reviewed in it)
- My work will be public code in an open source project
Do not hesitate to ask! (see contact page)
