Building high-quality, reliable products in a fast-paced startup is hard
At a fast-paced startup, you typically focus on how quickly you can bring your company's vision to life. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as putting all your focus into delivering your product. Startups have a seemingly infinite number of areas pulling at the entire team's attention. With scarce resources, you must balance planning your roadmap, developing new features, fixing bugs, customer support, and much more.
In the middle of all the chaos, you want to build a high-quality product that won't create headaches for you or your customers. In today's world, the expectations of your customers are lofty. They want your service to provide a fast, reliable experience while you deliver new features to delight them. But to achieve that, it takes lots of time and effort. Chances are you won't have the capacity to spare to focus on the current and long-term quality of your applications.
Most startups feel like they need to sacrifice quality over speed, but it doesn't have to be that way.
As a software engineer and tester working primarily with startups, I understand the unique challenges and needs of early-stage companies. With the experience and skills acquired throughout my career, I can help companies like yours—startups with little time to waste and who need someone to come in and provide value as quickly as possible.
As a freelancer and consultant, I work with tech startups across the globe to help them build effective, high-quality software. It's my mission to help these companies get their idea off the ground quickly and in the right way for the long haul.
For over 19 years, I've worked with startups and small organizations across the globe to help them successfully build effective, high-quality software. My experience comes from working with early-stage companies in New York City and San Francisco and remotely with dozens across the globe.
My main areas of focus are full-stack web development, test automation, and DevOps. I love sharing my thoughts and expertise around test automation on my blog, Dev Tester, and have written a book on the same topic.
