What can I evolve for you today?


Welcome to Codosaur.us, home of Codosaurus, LLC!  You've probably got a lot of questions, so let's dive right in.  Here are the most common FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):

What services do you offer?

Mainly, software development, especially remote part-time back-end Ruby on Rails staff-augmentation contracts.  I also can do basic front-end work (including minor CSS/JavaScript tweaks), and will consider other technology stacks (see the Skills page), a short commute from Fairfax (City) VA, brief work at 40 hours/week, taking on a whole small project solo, or temporary employment.  However, I am not open to "permanent" employment, changing careers, relocation, or spending months on the road.

Are you available right now?

No, sorry, I am booked solid for the foreseeable future, at the very least until mid-October 2015, and quite likely until sometime in mid-2016.  Watch this space -- or sign up on the "Email List Signup" page to be notified when I'm coming available again.

What do you charge?

That depends on several factors.  I start with a general rate of $135/hour, for a direct client, that I found myself, on a business-to-business basis.  Then there are generous discounts for people who bring me the work (5%), staffing agencies (10%), and work on a W2 basis (15%).  (Yes, you may combine them.)  Further notes:

What kinds of clients do you serve?

Mainly, companies with technology-based products or services.  For example, if you run a web site that helps law offices manage their cases, yes... but if you are a law office, with home-grown case management software, no.  You can find some examples on the clients page.  If you're not sure if you fit, let's discuss it!

Is there anything else I should know?
