Software Project Consultant
I am a top-tier software engineer with over twenty years of experience. Before founding a startup through Y Combinator (widely recognized as the #1 startup accelerator program worldwide), I was a senior engineer at Google. I have a master's degree in Computer Science and my experience is diverse, covering both public and private sector organizations as well as non-profits.
If you are looking for a software engineer for your project, but are not one yourself, it will be extremely difficult for you to evaluate candidates. Paying more, including both for individual contractors as well as through a consulting firm, does not necessarily increase the likelihood that your project will succeed, assuming you measure success according to the quality of the result and the timeliness of its delivery.
I can help. I will teach you how to evaluate software and software engineers. I will show you how to structure your project to get the highest-quality result. I will empower you to make good decisions about your project by giving you the knowledge you need in terms you understand.
Regardless of your field, good software can make your team drastically more productive and happy. Bad software has the opposite effect, slowing you down and often causing anger and frustration for those who use it. Because my time is limited, I cannot build your solution, but I can help you put together the right people to build it. More importantly, I will empower you with the right criteria with which to evaluate your project's deliverables so that you can get the highest quality possible within your budget and time constraints.
If you are passionate about your field, then good software will help you to achieve a larger impact. This is why I am so passionate about good software and why I want to help you get your project done right. An upfront investment with me will improve the project's development and its final result. Since you are very likely to keep this software for years, this is an investment that will certainly pay off.
