Hello, this is me:
Front-end engineer from Slovenia with 7 years of professional experience working for various local and international clients. My WordPress experience is limited to core and plugins I’ve personally deemed acceptable in quality to rely upon for custom websites built from scratch.
My focus has always been web performance and accessibility. I am very opinionated about how to develop for WordPress and I can say with confidence that the majority of the code written for WordPress (free or premium) is subpar quality and should not be relied upon for business needs. Reach out to me for a consultation before you commit yourself to a premium theme that looks gorgeous on the surface, because chances are you will end up with a website that is hard to develop upon and even harder to move away from because of vendor lock-in.
My goal is to provide you with a product that can be build upon by any decent developer and that will not prevent you from moving your content to another solution, should you choose to do so in the future.
WordPress technologies I use:
- My own boilerplate
- Advanced Custom Fields
- Timber – Twig templates
- Plugins like: Yoast SEO, Polylang, WooCommerce, etc.
General skills and tech:
- CSS (Sass, experience with latest tech like the CSS grid)
- Node.js & NPM
- Sysops – LEMP stack
- VPS configuration, monitoring and maintenance (Vultr, Digital Ocean)
When to hire me:
If you value your business and need a strong and reliable foundation or maybe you need a custom component built for integration into your existing website, then I can help you out.
But if you need a customization of an existing theme or plugin, I’m not the best person.
Thank you, Andrej! You've created a beautiful plugin for me, and I'm so grateful that you've completed this task in such a short time and all along the way, it's evident that you're absolutely committed to high-quality work. You thought of many details for me to make the interface user-friendly, and you also have a great sense of aesthetics, which became instrumental in this case. When I asked for a clone of an existing online tool, I was initially a bit worried that you would literally clone the tool, but instead you extracted the essence and made something that could stand on its own. I went back to read your profile as we worked together and chuckled when I saw this line: " I am very opinionated about how to develop for WordPress". While we worked on this project, I could feel the force of your opinion, and it is a GREAT thing. I've come here to look for an expert, and I found one.
I have been hiring freelancers to work on my site for 11 years now. Working with Andrej was the easiest, quickest, and best experience I have had in all that time.
Andrej is a dedicated and talented developer. It was a pleasure working with him on the website migration to WordPress project.
I hired Andrej to make a responsive email template. I found him to be very responsive and willing to try a number of possible solutions to achieve the best results. I am very pleased with his work.
He was absolutely tremendous. I would highly recommend Andrej to anyone.
