I’m an expert in web technologies. I’ve been doing programming professionally for 10 years. I’m especially good at web development with JavaScript, my tools of choice being React and GraphQL. In addition to that, I’m fluent in Python, Clojure and Common Lisp. I’m great at operating independently, including remotely and across different timezones. I get things done and provide immediate positive impact to any project.

GraphQL Consulting and Training

I’m available for GraphQL, React and React Native remote consulting. My rate is €200/h ($225/h). I’m available both for full-time and part-time projects of any length; however ideal project for me is 3 to 6 month long and either full-time or 80%.

Examples of projects, where I’d be a great fit, are:

I also offer on-site training within Europe, both for server-side and client-side GraphQL. Training costs €7500 per day of training.
