One of the problems with operating as a one-man software development company is that the pipeline of work can be quite erratic. When you’re responsible both for drumming up business and for delivering the work, it’s difficult to maintain a steady pace from month to month. Instead quiet months can be followed by periods when you have to turn work away as there are not enough hours in the day. I’m not yet at point where I feel able to commit to taking on permanent staff but I’d like to be able to scale up capacity from time to time. To that end I’m looking to make connections with local app developers (native iOS and Android) who are looking for freelance work now and in the future.
There’s no promise of immediate work (although it is a possibility), I’m more interested in long-term connections that could be of mutual benefit. In particular, I’m looking for introductions to app developers in and around Kent, with whom I can meet face-to-face should the need arise. East Kent (Canterbury area) would be perfect but anywhere this side of London is fine. So if you’re a local app developer, or know somebody who is, please get in touch (Twitter, LinkedIn, or send a message here) whether you’re looking for work right now or not. And if you do want some work, please include some examples of apps you have developed and how much you charge for your services.
Likewise, if you’re a graphic designer doing/interested in doing app work, I’d be interested in connecting with you too.
If you’re a software development outsourcing company, this invitation is not for you. I already reluctantly speak to dozens of such companies on the phone every month.
