I handle WordPress so your CTO doesn't have to

WordPress development and support for tech companies. Stop wasting engineering time on the company blog.

Your marketing team needs to publish content, but your engineering team is overworked. Can you afford to pull developers to fix a blog post? Every minute a developer tinkers with a WordPress plugin is a minute they aren’t working on your product.

I can handle WordPress development for your company, fitting seamlessly into your workflow. I communicate directly with your marketing team to get their development tasks done quickly, saving everyone the headache of requiring developer resources to make website changes.

I speak marketing: SEO, analytics, landing pages, content marketing, newsletters – it’s all in my vocabulary and I know how important high-quality online marketing is to a business.

How can I be of service?

On-call support for marketing teams

When your marketing team needs a developer to answer a question or make a change, they can call me directly. Instead of pulling engineers off important tasks, they can get what they need fast.

Updates and maintenance

WordPress plugins need frequent updates and constant attention to prevent hacking and breakage. I will keep your WordPress sites up-to-date and alert you if something needs your attention.

Custom development

Have an idea for a new company site, marketing campaign or landing page for a new product? I can build it end-to-end, working with your team or outside consultants.

Integrating your product with WordPress

Want to launch a plugin for WordPress, but have no idea where to start? I can guide you to what will and won’t work for your entry into the WordPress space.

Your development partner in WordPress

When it comes to accounting, payroll or legal, your company probably outsources the work. You wouldn’t blink at bringing consultants to improve SEO or help with marketing campaigns. But for some odd reason – when it comes to company websites – you ask your CTO to set up a blog. 

Why not outsource the WordPress tasks to me, and let your CTO focus on the product?

Need someone to build a new page on the marketing site? Send it over, I can help!

Have a question about how to do something in WordPress? I’ll answer the phone and record a video walkthrough so you never need to wonder again.

Customers having difficulty using part of your WordPress site? I’ll talk to them directly and solve the issue.

Unlike many freelance developers, I do not disappear: I get projects done on time, within budget, with frank communication throughout the whole process. I can work with your team or consultants you’ve hired to get the job done.

I will not outsource your project

Here’s something you’ll never hear me say:

“Our developer left and we’re not sure how to fix that. Sorry.”

Agency that outsourced your project because they couldn’t actually do it themselves

If you’ve been hurt by WordPress agencies who secretly passed your project off to programmers from Timbuctoo, I can provide a shoulder to cry on! I will NOT hand your site off to 3rd parties and hope for the best. When you speak to me, you speak to the developer – period.

Who am I and why should you bother?

I’m on the right

I’m Andy, a software developer from Idaho. Pleased to meet you!

I’ve been building software and working with WordPress for over 10 years.

There is no development task in WordPress that I can’t handle. Theme modifications, custom plugins, site speedups – I’ve done it all! I follow WordPress development best practices and document everything I do in easy-to-understand code and prose.

I have a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I’ve worked for product companies as a full-time software engineer. I’ve launched several fully-featured Rails applications and write for industry-leading websites like CSS-Tricks.

Frankly, I don’t think much of my degree – some of the best programmers I know are self-taught. But all of this is to say: I know software development, and I’m not hacking together scripts from Google results. Your WordPress site will be in good hands.
