I’m contract telecommute, remote, OFF-site only.
NO on-site. NO relocation.
Please note this in your database and act accordingly.
Some clients WILL hire me to telecommute
even if they’d prefer on-site
About 10% of my jobs are companies that can’t find a qualified on-site candidate.
That means you CAN successfully pitch me to clients who want an on-site programmer, IF the job and my qualifications are a good match.
Likely good matches
- The company can’t find a qualified Mac OS X developer to work on-site, and has been looking for months. At any given time half a dozen US companies are in that situation. I get a significant proportion of those jobs.
- The company has an upcoming deadline or show. I often get hired to get the project done in time.
- The company’s current programmer is busy adding features, so they’ll hire me to swat bugs.
How to pitch me to clients who want full-time on-site
Companies typically seek full-time on-site employees so they can retain expertise in-house.
Here’s how I help them achieve that:
- I document code well, so the next programmer on the project has an easy time taking over.
- I willingly transfer expertise to in-house people. I’m happy to do a brain dump to get the next person on the project up to speed.
When NOT to contact me:
- Work must be done on-site. (I work off-site only.)
- Job requires relocation.
- The client is looking for a cheap developer, not a fast and highly-skilled expert.
Jobs you SHOULD contact me about:
