I have good experience working with Web Start-ups and Small & Medium Businesses; and I worked with quite a few entrepreneurs helping them turn their ideas…

Work History & Feedback

Ruby Developer

“Worked with our developers to troubleshoot a number of bugs - was very helpful to them as a resource. We did not have them write original code or access our code base but they helped the best they could.My team found them friendly, knowledgable, and good to work with - They are a busy shop but if you can get their time, I imagine you would be very happy with their work. In that context, I would recommend their work and I generally have not had very good experiences with contractors in India - they were an exception in that regard.”

Social Search Site Needs Enhancements

“The good:+ Kranthi was a very hard worker and has a lot of skills as a programmer. + Very good with HTML and CSS and the work looked very nice visually. + Although project ran over the estimated timeframe, Kranthi was consistent with staying on the project to finish it.+ Good communication. Responded to email quickly and was also available on chat.+ Friendly person.The bad:- Attention to detail that was specified in requirements wasn't always followed out fully. Some items were done, while others were only partially complete.- Doesn't always see the "big picture" - concentrates on certain things but broke some other things along the way.- Was provided extensive (7 page) requirement/specifications complete with mockups and bullet list of things that needed to be done, yet told me that the requirements weren't "clear" enough, which is the first time I have had a developer tell me that in 8 years.”
