wordsmith

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

Wordpress Engineer - Genesis Developer

United States - Last active: 17 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 5

I am a Wordpress Engineer that specializes in creating Genesis Child Themes. I can build a professional Wordpress theme based on your PSD or AI design. PSD to WP Starting Cost $1000 I can take your existing design and build it on a theme framework (Genesis Recommended), along with any required custom post types and Javascript. Custom Plugin Development - Starting Cost $1000 There are so many Wordpress plugins out there, but many of them don't quite make the cut when it comes to your specific business requirements. I can take your requirements and build them into a Wordpress plugin that does exactly what you need and is stable and able to be forward compatible with Wordpress as it gets updated. Plugin Modification - Starting Cost $500 Sometimes there is a plugin that is so close to what you need, if it only did X, it would be perfect. I can modify existing plugin frameworks with compatible code that can be updated from a central codebase. I have built both simple and highly complicated mission critical plugins. Existing Theme Modification - Starting Cost $500 If you have an existing theme that you'd like to modify, I can put together a scope of work based on your ideas and modify it to meet your needs. Whether you need colors changed, a mega menu added, or some custom Javascript, I can build a solution for you. Responsive Conversion for Existing Site - Starting Cost $1000 If you have a great theme that simply needs to be upgraded to be more compatible with mobile devices, I can help. I've built mobile responsive websites from scratch and I am very familiar with the ins and outs of dealing with mobile devices and browser quirks. I am regularly hired by web design agencies to handle this task in particular. E-Commerce Sites - Starting Cost $1500 The solution I recommend for E-Commerce is WooCommerce. I build sites with it all the time, and I consider it to be the absolute best E-Commerce solution for Wordpress. Final cost is dependent on things like shipping requirements, whether you want your products set up for you, and what payment gateways you want to use. I work on both fixed priced projects and hourly projects. I handle both of them the same way, we develop a scope (big or small) and I give an estimate of cost. I manually bill the time up to the amount that we agreed as work is completed. If your project comes in less than the estimate, that is what you pay, if not, your estimate is the maximum cost, unless we increase the scope. 50% Deposits are required for fixed priced projects that are simple. Alternate arrangements can be made for fixed price projects that are larger. We can build milestones for those to reduce risk on both sides. All work/time is tracked through a project management system for organization. I am very experienced with developing on Wordpress and I am fairly responsive to emails/skype and available for calls as needed. If you are an agency, please contact me to discuss volume and rates.

Fullstack Web Architect

Russia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 6

In four intensive years of software development, I have become experienced in a number of critical technologies, including Ruby/RoR stack, Python stack, Javascript frontend/Backend stack, and Java/Scala Web stack. My experiences and skills developed have been especially strong in tasks involving Ruby/RoR. I have found Rails among the best tools available in web development so far, so I am especially enthusiastic about RoR projects. I can also provide expertise in Scala, a great language that I admire, and somewhat in Java, which I have worked with before (I used to write Jira plugins for my corporation). In Scala stack I have worked with Play2 and Slick and have used Guice. I can also use Python if it is necessary and is related to other tasks—for example, if is the project involves Python REST API that I have to work with from JS and if I need to do some fixes in it. In JS stack, my experience is mostly with AngularJS; I also have good experience with and have completed projects in node.js/express.js. In addition to working with socked.io, I have worked with Meteor.js and ReactJS (with flux and reflux architectures). In addition, I can handle DevOP works, especially with the AWS platform, where I have built cloud application infrastructure. In a number of services (obviously ec2, s3 and SES), I used ELB and have good experience with that. Finally, I have worked with Elasticsearch (both as an admin and as a developer), logstash/kibana, redis, mongo, postgres, mysql, and oracle db. When needed, I can work with puppet/chef/(but preferably ansible) and docker, and I also have experience with Varnish cache. I prefer nginx as a web server. Obviously I use git/issue tracker and can't really live without it. I also use IDE for development (IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate) and work from an OSX environment. I also have a Windows environment for various tests. About the posted hourly rate: This is the rate that I currently ask, but the rate may be negotiated at least in first weeks/month(s) if there's a really interesting project and a team with a real potential to raise my skills. (I like to work in teams.) Did I leave out something you need to know? Feel free to ask any questions about anything I wrote above—and well, about anything. Oh, and one pretty important thing: I've _never_ failed a job that I took.

Wordpress Web Developer and Digital Consultant

Australia - Last active: 30 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 8

I am a Melbourne based Web Developer and Digital Consultant specialising in customised WordPress based websites and applications, while also working with almost all other CMS and platforms to a degree. I've done a lot of work for digital agencies who use Wordpress as their primary CMS platform as well as other platforms, and helped them to produce hundreds of great sites, apps and online stores. In terms of building websites, I create only fully responsive websites and can use Bootstrap, Foundation or no framework at all. When working with Wordpress I prefer to minimise plugin use to only those that are critical depending on the solution required. I often use ACF (advanced custom fields), woocommerce and gravity forms, putting a special emphasis on creating a clean, easy to use admin interface so that clients can easily manage pages and options in the back end. I am always around to consult with you and help find the best solution, and I work quickly and efficiently to get the job done right the first time around, which makes my services a cheap and easy solution in comparison to others. Have a look at what my clients say about me, and get more info on my work at my site here: http://ronpiper.com.au/ NOTE: For some recent examples of my work please get in touch with me and I will send through and talk you through my experience with them.
