Acting in a lead development role for Oregon Ice Cream as a subcontracted developer for Webship Solutions, we provided expertise in Divi to ensure that local assets such as branded fonts and popups rendered correctly. This agency was tasked to assist with mobile styles and branded font rendering across numerous devices and was able to mitigate post-deployment issues using Sass. Additionally, numerous modifications to the template were made and a marketing popup was also created based on provided designs to capture customers directly to a mailing list. Along with routine updates to content and related blocks on the site, contact forms were reworked to be compatible with Salesforce and it's back-end configuration for the user. The API required modifications from the last version of the site, and much work was required setting up appropriate automated functions for sorting leads and ensuring fields matched to accept data directly from the contact forms. We're still working with Oregon Ice Cream on additional modifications, enhancements, optimizations and security.

DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

As a professional developer that focuses on providing services to other agencies, don't ask me to cut corners or put a band-aid on it. There's a right way and a wrong way to reprioritize work and speed up production time that doesn't involve creating problems for clients. If you want my help, we're going to do this ethically, correctly, and to standards.

REALISTIC PROJECT PLANNING

When I work with your agency, expect me to be a good listener, to be confident in what I do, and to never sugarcoat things for you. If something needs to be said for the sake of your reputation and the client's project, then expect to hear it from me first. We'll work together to come up with a realistic, professional plan for your clients that won't cause them pain.

RIGHT TOOL FOR THE RIGHT JOB

I don't believe in slamming out cheap templates, using stock settings, or working fast and cheap. It's not only your harming your business image as an agency, but it will destroy my reputation as a professional developer. While I'm more than happy to help you, don't ask me to do things that should be found on cheap offshore contractor sites.

COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP

My goal is to work in unison with your agency as a contracted senior member of your team to augment the skills and expertise you don't have in-house. We'll need to work closely together and learn to trust one another. So expect a tight working relationship with professional pushback, and you'll need to be ready to grow from day one to be successful.
