Pixels light me up.

Hi, I'm Andrew Martin, an excitable freelance front-end web developer, with some full-stack chops, too. I live with an intense passion for web development.

For as long as I can remember, I've been obsessed with learning about the latest and greatest in web development.

Most days, I'm digging into a React.js web app, setting up a Rails API, or marking up an elegant interface. I also play nicely with Node.js, Angular.js, Ember.js, Ruby on Rails, and find it absolutely esssential to work with build tools like Webpack and Parcel. Some of my favorites: test-driving development, thoroughly architecting a RESTful API, or planning and creating an elegant user interface to solve a Client's business objective.

Plays well with others.

Here are a few Clients I’ve shared the work day with recently.

A sampling of the recent projects I've had the pleasure of working on.

The proof is in the pudding coding.

I'd strongly recommend Andrew if you're looking for a top notch freelance web developer. If the opportunity arose I'd hire him again.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Andrew when I managed the Developer Platform and Global Eng teams at Lyft. During that time, we brought Andrew on to help us with a few web development projects, namely the complete overhaul of www.lyft.com/developers (which was an important portal for partners and developers building on top of the Lyft API).

    Andrew was able to quickly get up to speed on Lyft's web dev framework and bring his own React skills into play to lead the rebuild of the site. Throughout the project and beyond, I appreciated Andrew's communication skills and how he continually kept me up-to-date with the progress of the projects he worked on. The combination of strong web development and communication skills made Andrew a joy to work with.

  • How one solves problems is not only reflected in their work but also in who they are as a person. After watching Andrew solve a myriad of problems, it's apparent that he's a great architect and a mensch.

    Andrew delivers under deadlines and produces forward leaning code which holds up long after it's initial release. If you're looking for a strong communicator to take the long view on a project, this is your man.

  • I've had the pleasure of working with Andrew for many years now, on numerous projects. His skill set and knowledge have made working together fun!
