NEW on Guru! A communicative Canadian who hand-builds profitable online stores in Wordpress / WooCommerce

Hi, I'm Dima from Canada. I'm a web app developer with the specialty of building online storefronts in Wordpress/WooCommerce. But hey- plenty of other guys specialize in that too. So in my case, the modus operandi is: 1) NO BS COMMUNICATION + 2) PAGESPEED SCORES

Obviously I'm a native English speaker, with a Western work-ethic, who lives in/near your time zone (Eastern time).

Before starting our work together, the first thing we do is establish a detailed *roadmap*. That way, during the project, you get nightly update emails from me with lists of the *to-do* items I got done that day. Although you can also phone me any time during the project (I'm a native English speaker, so that's pretty easy for me to accommodate).

Why am I spending so much time talking about COMMUNICATION? Because if you've ever worked with a developer in the past, then you'll know that the worst thing is being in a state of limbo, where you don't know if he/she gets what you're saying, and whether he/she is doing the actual work *today* or next week or never.

I structure my projects so that you always know what work is happening, what's do-able, what's possible within a reasonable timeframe, and what's not possible to do within the budget. You always get either a "yes if" or a "no unless" from me, and never a "maybe".

If that sounds good to you, you should get in touch :)

Work Terms

As a native English speaker, besides my ability to, um, deliver the work, my number 1 advantage is *nuanced communication*.

So the priority is being communicative and responding to messages at all hours. That means email, iMessage, and even phone calls when something is time-sensitive for you.

I work in weekly milestones, which means my clients don't find themselves risking a large sum of money and wondering if they're going to get a return on their investment. You pay for a week up-front, I send you nightly updates about the day's progress (and my plan for the next day), and so long as the project is moving forward quickly, then you keep investing in the next weekly milestone. That protects clients and that protects developers like me.
