What do you freelance in?

I know many indie hackers freelance.

I also know many indie hackers look to hire freelancers (and struggle to find them).

If you are a freelancer:

  • what do you do?
  • where can people find out more about you?

    I’m primarily a freelance developer, indie hacker on the side. I focus on full-stack Ruby on Rails and native iOS apps. I also offer 1:1 and team training via pair programming.

      Cool! I’m thinking of freelancing in the same areas to generate a bit of income.

      Where do you find you clients?

      1. 1

        well nothing from dribbble itself to be honest :) mostly word of mouth.
        on the other hand, I know some people that generate a crazy amount of job from dribbble :)

        1. 1

          Very cool - thanks for the tips :D

  3. 3

    What do you do?
    Web & mobile development, digital strategy.

    I usually work with individuals to clarify, plan and execute technical strategies to realise the full potential of their concepts. Normally taking a product from ideation to Series A funding.

    Where can people find out more about you?
    https://www.pandabridge.co.uk/ - although this is a little out of date. Tangentially, I get 99% of my work through word of mouth and referrals.

    Freelance book editor (devleopmental editor). I've been editing since about 2005.

    There has been a boom in the need for editors in recent years. This is mostly from growing popularirty of self-publishing, but also a deepening understanding of the publishing process and the importance of editing.

    I'm a fullstack developer and work mainly on SaaS products.
    My typical stack is Next.js/React.js on the frontend and Java (with Spring) or express.js on the backend.
    I care mostly about producing something that really provides value, consequently I put a lot of effort on highly efficient systems, whether it's about page performance (especially core web vitals), CRO or efficient backend architectures.

    You can find out more about me on my personal website manuelkruisz.com !

    My experiences freelancing have led me to my first product on Indie Hackers: Scoped - a cost estimate and scoping tool for freelancers. I got really tired of how long it takes to develop accurate cost estimates when bidding on a project so I made a Google Sheet template to streamline the process as much as possible.
