I'm happy to hear that you consider contracting me. I'm always happy to help and did that a lot in the past. Fortunately, many projects contact me for consulting and some initial assistance. The drawback is that the number of requests is so large that I can't offer this "for free" any longer. In my previous position I had some research budget that I could spend freely, but this is not possible any further as I'm now self-employed.
You can contract me for small and large contracts. If you want to contract me, there are couple of options:
- We can set up a regular consulting contract or a framework agreement for work items exceeding a day or two. I'm happy to use your contracts as a basis.
- Work items not exceeding a day or two, I'm happy to receive a simple purchase order.
- Alternatively, you could also consider sponsoring via GitHub sponsors. There are one-time tiers available that include a consulting session. These are a bit higher than the hourly rate I usually charge as it also includes a small component for open source work. Please see my GitHub sponsors page for details.
My hourly rate is 110 USD / 100 EUR per hour. If you plan to contract me, I'd appreciate if you get in touch beforehand so that we can ensure that I can actually help you.
