  • Transition existing React web apps to React Native.

  • Build custom software using frontend technologies such as React.js (and/or other javascript frameworks/libraries) as well as the backend using Node.js, PHP, .NET and other technologies that delights clients.

  • Work with CMSs such as WordPress (custom); Drupal, and others.

  • Participate in the occasional sales call to help scope out prospective projects as needed.
