jonbprime

Professional software developer with over 20 years of experience building and managing website and server application software projects for clients around the US.

On most of my recent projects I have been building unique web applications using C# and the entire .NET stack. Applications have included mobile back-ends, web application to facilitate on demand food delivery (with restaurant and driver mobile apps), freelance jobs site (similar to Guru.com) and many others. Basically full stack C#/.NET/MVC development projects (including many migrations to Azure).

Because of my years of experience, I can help guide clients on technology selection and have no problem doing the entire implementation from Photoshop design work to SQL DB queries and everything in between. Most of my clients have put me in charge of the entire software life-cycle from requirements analysis, design documentation, implementation, testing and release management.

Over the past year I have also been working on various Android application development projects. If your project has, or will have, a mobile component, I can help you design and develop this as well.

PS. I have not used Guru.com in many years so almost all of my project work has been done outside this or any other job platform.

Work Terms

I usually work on an hourly basis because I feel it allows the project to change and grow as time goes on without having to renegotiating the project all the time. Almost always, projects grow in scope (at the clients request) from their initial conception. This is natural and very hard to account for fairly before the project even starts. That's said, I am open to fixed price projects if a client requires it.

Whether "fixed cost" or hourly, my costs are calculated based on a $75-$95/hr rate. If you already have a manager and just need me to work on coding assignments I charge $75. If you need me to also design/architect the "system", $85/hr, and if you need me to also manage other team members my rate is $95/hr.

My Android coding rate is $50/hr due to the fact that I only have about 2 years of experience with that stack.

For hourly work, I invoice weekly through FreshBooks which includes notes on each days activities. If the project is fixed cost, I can provide weekly status reports on the current progress and upcoming milestones.

For the past 15 years I have been exclusively working with clients remotely. I have my own office in Rockland, ME and have no problem staying on task and motivated. I'm happy communicating with clients however they are most comfortable including phone calls, email, Skype, etc. I like to also use tools like Assembla to track tasks, status and priorities so everyone on the project can see how things are going. Google docs is also great for remote collaboration and documentation.
