For a fistful of dollars

Gun for hire. I do software development consulting. Primarily short-term consultant (1-3 months with option to extend), optionally part-time (8-40 hours per week), preferably working remotely (with occasional in-person meetings). Subcontracting accepted.

Hands-on software development mixed with mentoring new talent. Emphasis on code quality over hacks. With a wide range of skills and experience, I enjoy being the go-to guy for problems which have already stumped others. Working full-stack, but prefer backend over frontend.

Grew up in an entrepreneurial family and have been running businesses since was a teenager. Co-founded several e-commerce sites, built tools for the government, done internet/security research, released dozens of open source projects, advised developers and startups. Have a university education, army officers' training, traveled the world with my backpack, lived in several countries. Prefer to have a flexible lifestyle; am currently a freelance contractor/consultant. Message me.

If you want to help out with my freelancing, connect on linkedin and endorse me for skills that I have helped you with on StackExchange. Please mention StackExchange in your connection request. Thanks!

I'm from Sweden. Current location may change, as I'm moving/traveling quite often.
