Hire me

If you hire me, you will benefit from over ten years of work and school experience, with a passion for web development that started years before.

I take pride in my work and have a high work standard: code will come to you documented, formatted, and ready for use.

Several former employers were ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 certified, and I am used to working in environments with sensitive data.

Aside from programming, I have also trained inexperienced developers. My trainees are usually university-educated IT graduates in their twenties or teenage students starting from scratch in vocational studies.

While I do not offer these skills as a service, I know the basics of translating English to Dutch, technical writing, and public speaking, among other subjects. This knowledge helps me when working with professionals in those fields.

PS. Would you rather have a sounding board or someone to help work out your functional ideas? Let's combine your domain knowledge with mine!

Technologies

These are some of the technologies that I use:

  • Django
  • Python
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • SCSS
  • JavaScript
  • Svelte
  • Eleventy (11ty)
  • pre-commit
  • tox

  • Git
  • GitLab
  • Docker
  • Visual Studio Code
  • macOS

My past experiences also include PHP, Laravel, and Drupal.

Work location

I work from my home office in Groningen, The Netherlands. This place gives me room to work using my preferred setup and with minimal distraction.

Workdays

My typical work week consists of Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, not starting before 10 AM, and no physical meetings before 1 PM.

I work at a school on Fridays and am therefore unavailable on this day. However, I often become available during school holidays in the Dutch northern region.

Ethics

I have worked on different projects in different sectors and do not require a high affinity with a subject.

However, I do have a preference for projects in education, gaming, arts, and those improving the world for people and animals.

I do not take on projects that primarily promote gambling and smoking, among other subjects, at my discretion.

Turn-offs

Ethics aside, some subjects are simply Not My Thing™:

  • Server management and setting up web hosting.
  • Meetings for the sake of meetings.
  • Weekend work.
  • Unexpected phone calls.
  • Windows (the operating system).

Let's work together!
