Hi! I’m currently super busy on a project. I am not currently available for hire, and I am not seeking new opportunities.
.NET + Kentico Web Developer | Consultant | Solutions Architect | Melbourne-based, remote-ready
If you occasionally need an extra senior Kentico developer during a busy period, or tech guidance on sales or solution architecture for Kentico projects, I’d like to help.
I’m an Australian freelance Kentico developer with 6+ years of agency experience implementing Kentico websites, and over 16 years’ experience as a professional web developer, both on-site and remotely.
I can help you with
- technical architecture, risk assessment and project guidance (including support during scoping, sales, estimation and the tender process)
- implementation of ASP.NET, SQL, .NET Web API and Kentico solutions including complex Kentico eCommerce solutions, payment gateways, custom modules, integration with third party systems, import and export tools etc
- rapid, high quality implementation of static markup into Kentico using best practices, satisfying web and accessibility standards (HTML5 validation, WCAG)
- supporting, guiding and working alongside your dev team, or solo
- training and mentoring in Kentico for developers and content administrators
- team development – hiring, assessing, expanding and improving your tech team and its processes, induction materials
- supporting technical change and growth
- preparing for and improving remote working practices
- independent Kentico project audits and assessments
- Kentico upgrades
If you’re considering an overseas / outsourced Kentico dev team, I might also be able to help you establish, train and manage that team on location.
I can possibly also help with the following, although these are skills I am improving, and not my strengths:
- some front-end work: AngularJS, jQuery, NVD3, Twitter Bootstrap, adapting existing HTML/CSS/js
- other CMS development: Squarespace, WordPress, Umbraco and Orchard
