I'm Joe, a person who knows websites. If you've ever worked on maintaining a website, you know there isn't always a black and white answer to every issue, but there's always a way to proceed forward towards a solution, or to find an alternative that works just as well. An understanding of this is critical to the success of any website. I can help you navigate this world, and with my experise, find and execute the best solution for your needs. I know PHP and Python, but over the past three years I've been working mostly with Magento. I'm a Certified Magento Developer, and I've worked with most areas of Magento, successfully completing tasks from front-end customization to back-end catalog management nightmares. I can assist in managing your store, extending its core functionality, customizing the front-end, implementing custom extensions for your needs, and in troubleshooting all areas of Magento. I'm fluent with both Community and Enterprise editions. I work remotely, during normal business hours, and am accessible via email, Skype, and phone. I usually have a few ongoing contracts, so part-time work is what I'm normally available for. However, that's enough to get a heck-of-a-lot done. Let's get in touch and let me know how I can help. Thank you.
