Engineering hitman for hire...


50 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Mar 05, 2016

Engineering hitman for hire... I make technical problems disappear :)

I'm an all around enginerd/maker if can be designed, build, or repaired, I can probably do it or at least tell the specialized person who can.

Things i'm great with...
Computers hardware (non apple, sorry)
Computer software (C, C#, Java, labview, various scripting languages, etc)
Websites (Javascript, php, mysql, laravel, lumen, wordpress, etc)
Home repairs/improvements
Electronics (Raspberry Pi, Arduino, custom PCBs, etc)
Automobile repairs
3D printing
Assembling that Ikea furniture that you lost the instructions for...
Building some random thing you thought up :)

Things I probably cant help with...
Apple computers
Andriod devices
Graphic design

I've intentionally left this very open ended because really, i'd just love to meet new people and use my skills to help them. I'm probably more likely to be able to help out with smaller projects (repair a laptop, diagnose a car problem, build some small device, help setup a personal blog or website) than something larger (Launch my online business, replace my engine, etc) simply due to time constraints but i'm open to hearing about any and all projects!
Also, i've set my rate rather generically at 50 simbi because its nearly impossible to predict what sort of projects will come of this. If its a project that seems fun to me or you really just need the help, ill probably be happy to do it for less... If its for business purposes or a project that im perfectly capable of, though not really excited about.. it might be a bit more but i'll be honest and tell you that ;)

Some of my goofy projects can be found at

Training & Qualifications

BS Electrical Engineering (I make the electrons go from your wall outlet to the inside of your computer)
BS Computer Engineering (I make the computer use the electrons to represent 1's and 0's so it can do stuff)
BS Computer Science (I turn the 1's and 0's into cat videos on youtube providing you with hours of entertainment)

I currently work full time as a software engineer primarily doing labview development. Prior to this, I spend about 8 years doing failure analysis in the tech industry.

Availability & Preferences

Generally evenings and weekends are best but there is some flexibility in my schedule depending on this situation.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
