High Volume Custom CRM

Simultaneously track thousands of orders
Existing tools did a bad job at tracking a large volume of in-progress orders. So we built an internal tool to show the live progress of each client request.

Build a Retool app

I can help you build Retool apps in the form of internal tools, as well as MVPs for consumer-facing applications. I've used Retool since 2017 at my startup Sixty, at Lambda School, for VC-backed client companies, and at Laskie.
Marketing

Build programmatic landing pages for SEO

Programmatic landing pages have the potential to generate millions of free unique visitors over the life of your startup. I led a campaign at Sixty that saw 20-30% WoW growth over many months. I can help you strategize and implement a strategy here.

Migrate from no-code to code

Having a more quicker and effective no-code to code migration plan can save you anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars, based on your scale. I migrated multiple MVPs at my startup and helped Lambda School and other VC-backed startups do the same.
Engineering

Build a low-code algorithm in Google Sheets

Whether you're trying to do automate matchmaking, or build a way to predict pricing, you may be able to build v1 in a Google Sheet. At my startup, I built an MVP for both of these algorithms in a Google Sheet. I've also consulted for other startups doing the same.

Build a marketplace startup

I love marketplace startups. The ability to support hundreds of millions of users through a platform is one of the coolest aspects of the softare revolution. I've built two marketplace startups from the ground up. I can help you launch and grow yours.

Build a startup for freelancers

There are many startups one could build for the hundreds of millions of freelancers across the globe. I've worked as a freelancer for various points in my career, and have built two startups in the space from the ground up. I can help you build yours as well.
Engineering

Build a no-code MVP

I can help you build your no code MVP to prove your concept, with a scalability plan for when you get traction. I built multiple successful no-code MVPs at my startup, Sixty, that grew to the limits of what the technology could support.
Engineering

Scale your no-code app

I can help you get more exponential user growth out of your no-code tool. I built multiple no-code MVPs at my startup Sixty, most of which scaled to the limits of the technology. We had to get creative to go further. I've also helped multiple VC-backed startups do the same.
