Freelance Rails Developer Wanted

Hello,

I hope it's ok to be posting this here.

I'm looking for an experienced Rails developer to take on a fairly
simple project and possibly many others in the future. I have the
entire project written down and I'm looking to start ASAP.

I don't care where you live or what times you work as long as you
really understand Rails and remain reliable during the development
process.

If you're interested please mail railsdev@vipclick.net, preferably
with a sample of previous work and I'll be sending you further details
so we can discuss a quote.

Thanks

Hi. My name is Jamey Cribbs. I saw your message on the Rails mailing list and decided to respond.

I have 20+ years experience in I.T., mostly as a programmer. For the last 3 years I have been programming in Ruby. Perhaps the best example of my Ruby skills is KirbyBase (http://netpromi.com/kirbybase_ruby.html), a pure-ruby dbms.

For the last year and a half, I have been working with Rails. In addition to developing three intranet Rails apps for my day job, I have been moonlighting as a Rails developer for a California-based web development firm. One example of my Rails work is a web app for a real estate agency (http://brownandco-sf.com). I am currently working as part of a team re-writing an e-commerce app in Rails for an on-line retailer (http://store.gspotcenter.com). Additionally, I am building a Rails intranet app for an advertising agency in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I am based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, and am very comfortable working remotely.

Between my day job and my side work, I am pretty booked up right now, but I'm seriously contemplating quitting my day job and working for myself full time. With that in mind, I thought I would contact you to get more details about your present project and possible future projects.

Thanks.

I'm just hoping, for your sake, that your employer / fellow employees aren't avid readers of the list :wink:

Actually, at this point I don't really care! I currently work at one of those big corporations where you have meetings to discuss having meetings and terms like "concept document" and "metrics" echo off the walls. To be honest, the opportunity to do Rails work on the side, where it's just you and your client, and they don't care about corporate mumbo-jumbo, just results, has helped keep me sane over the last year and a half. :slight_smile:

Jamey

Good for you, bud. I left a job in that environ for the same reasons.

Best of luck.
Bill
