    Casey Strouse Agency Contractor

    I solve business problems using elegant software systems

    United States - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 10

    Free consultation. I've been developing software for the web since 2001 and have since then become quite adept at designing and implementing systems in PHP and Ruby with a recent focus on custom Wordpress development and consulting. Because of my breadth of experience with different technologies I'm very good at analyzing a project and deciding how best to approach it and which technologies are the best fit for your project and your company's needs. When it comes to development I prefer to work on small and medium-sized projects that involved modifying existing systems rather than building systems from scratch. Clients who can communicate their problem domain effectively and prefer a hands-on developer who will work with them closely are my favorite. I like to use a highly iterative process with lots of client involvement to ensure that my solutions are exactly what you're looking for. I work on a Mac, write my code in TextMate, use git for keeping track of my work, and use agile development practices to provide robust software that solves your unique business problem quickly and efficiently. I work well with others and can get up to speed on a new project in a few hours. If you'd like to work together or see what I can offer to your organization please contact me for a FREE CONSULTATION today.

  8. Bailey B.

    Bailey B. Agency Contractor

    Writer/Editor

    United States - Tests: 3

    I remember very distinctly being the first kid in my kindergarten class able to read through an entire book without assistance. Words I understood and I could get lost in them, build alternate worlds with my imagination, and roam them all day. I grew up loving language. From a very early age, I felt compelled to write and to play with words, syntax, and semantics. Though admittedly my first ramblings were rough around the edges, I kept writing throughout middle school and high school. Then at the age of 18, I co-founded my first business, which satisfied my need to problem-solve, my enthusiasm for open-source software, and my passion for writing. And though the business eventually dissolved to allow the co-founders opportunity to pursue other projects, the time I spent there was invaluable in fostering the skills I continue to use today. I spent the next couple years working as a copywriter and editor, building my own brand and a stable clientele that consisted primarily of international eCommerce companies. In that time, I graduated with my degree in research psychology, which only strengthened my ability to contemplate various problems and find solutions. I then went on to complete an AmeriCorps service year, working with a local non-profit to alleviate poverty in my community. In this position, I became familiar with non-profit operations, grant writing, and administration management. After my service year ended, I was promoted to a full-time position as the acting Director of Administration at age 24. I’m currently working as a product development specialist, copywriter, and novelist.
