Coding with Jesse

Wanted: Ajax Developers

April 18th, 2007

I'm starting to get really swamped with work, and it's about time I started looking for some great talent to help me out with cool projects like FlickrCash.

Here's what I need you to be:

  • You're a self-employed individual (no teams or agencies, please).
  • You're freelancing full-time (at least 20 hours per week).
  • You are an expert in JavaScript, Ajax, CSS and XHTML.
  • You're always doing your best to produce work that is valid, accessible, and uses JavaScript unobtrusively.
  • You're at least familiar with jQuery. (You don't have to be an expert because jQuery is easy to learn.)
  • You're very experienced programming on the server side, especially with PHP and MySQL. Ruby on Rails experience is helpful too.

If this sounds like you, drop me a line and let me know. Please give some details like where you live, how long you've been freelancing, what kinds of projects you like to work on the most, what your hourly rate is, etc. I'll be in London for the next week but I'll email everyone back as soon as I can. Thanks!

I am afraid I meet none of those requirements. But that isn't the reason I posted.

Unrelated to the post, but nice site you have here! I'm beginning a "Link of the Day" feature on my site, and I need sites lined up to be link of the day. I think I might use yours on Friday, if that's okay with you. (Congrats!)
