Why hire a freelance developer?
There are some significant advantages in hiring a freelance programmer for your next project:
Freelancers are a great way to get an additional resource for a particular project, without the on-going costs of full-time employees. When the project is over, or you need to scale back on resources, you’re not required to keep paying us – we only get paid when we’re working for you.
Hiring full-time employees is expensive! You have to pay superannuation, payroll tax, annual & sick leave entitlements. It’s a massive commitment.
As a freelancer, you’ll simply pay my rate during the times I’m working for you – this gives you a lot of flexibility in how you can resource your projects.
I provide my own equipment and tools (computer, software, etc) – you don’t need to purchase these for me – this saves you a lot of money, as these can often be quite expensive.
Contractors are often flexible about what hours they work. I can do an urgent job for you at short notice, or I can change my working hours to suit your project (for example, if you were located in a different timezone).
We are also very accountable with our time – I log all of my time in a timesheet which I make available for my clients to view online. You will know exactly what I’m working on and where your money is being invested.
Freelancers are hard-working, professional people. Many of us have a great deal of experience that could be invaluable in making your next project a success.

I’m often writing RESTful web APIs to communcate with my mobile and web applications.
