Hi, I’m Anne!
As an experienced developer with a business background, I build websites and features that help grow businesses like yours.
Visit my site to get to know me better and see samples of my work: https://www.anneschmidt.co.
A development partner for your business.
I’ve been coding for 20 years, focusing on Wordpress as a full-time developer for the last eight. Prior to starting my own business, I worked in finance and corporate strategy for Citi, Disney, Hanes and Boston Scientific. I have a business degree from the University of Virginia.
My business background gives me a unique perspective on web development. With every project, I like to start with the end business goal in mind. This allows me to maintain the project’s focus, suggest potential approaches and ensure the end outcome meets your needs.
With every project, my priorities are to:
- Ensure you are happy with my work and with the end result.
- Maintain and/or enhance ease of use of your site, so you can offer a smooth experience for yourself and for end users.
- Provide well-structured code and a process that’s easy to follow, so you can continue to manage your site to build your business.
- Leave you with a site that meets your business goals — whether that be conversions, e-commerce sales, lead generation, etc. I want to help you build a site that helps you achieve your dreams.
Being a web developer allows me to grow my company and my young family, and is an extension of my favorite childhood summer pastime: learning Excel formulas on my dad’s PC (yes, really!).
Projects I like to focus on include:
- PSD to WordPress conversions
- Custom form building, especially using Gravity Forms
- Advanced plugin creation and modification
- Video, email, and ecommerce integration
- Custom themes and custom child themes
- Anything utilizing the Genesis Framework
Some of my recent projects:
Here are a few of my favorite sites that I have developed and supported:
To help Link-able build a white-hat marketplace for SEO content, I converted Photoshop designs to a custom child theme with advanced Gravity Forms, user registration and FacetWP search capabilities.
To help EduChange grow its educational resources and impact, I converted their site to a modern theme with an integrated page builder, allowing their team to easily update and add content to their site.
To help Smithey Ironware get its premium skillets in the hands of more gourmands, I’ve provided ongoing custom support to augment their site — from ecommerce to a dynamic retail locator.
Here’s what some of my clients have said about working with me:
“Anne is fabulous! Work was completed quickly and exactly as requested.”
“She clearly is skilled in both developer language and issues and has people skills—a great combination.”
“Very professional and responsive, will hire again.”
How can I help you build a site that helps grow your business?
Anne is very easy to work with. Didn't make me feel stupid. Had good instincts and good follow-through. My first experience with Codeable & it was great.
Working with Anne Schmidt was truly a nightmare. I was provided with a stream of untested revisions of code. Whack-a-Mole debugging caused problems to crop up everywhere. The project ran weeks over schedule and required intervention from her Handler. When it seemed the project was finished (barely to spec and not to my satisfaction) I thought I could breathe easy but two weeks after signing off the project a huge deficiency was discovered in the plugin Anne wrote. Anne's advice; turn off her code. Anne's Handler Leo at Codeable used a slippery loophole in their 'money back guarantee' to avoid returning my fee. So now I'm left with nothing; No usable code. No money. Plus worse than nothing; Weeks of wasted time, unimaginable frustration and being returned to square-one. If considering a software developer I would avoid Anne Schmidt like the plague. I would also seriously evaluate the vetting process used by the headhunter firm, Codeable, which farmed her out.
Anne was amazing! Super responsive and delivered our project on time. We will definitely be asking to use Anne again in the future.
Thank you for all of the help, Anne.
Project was on schedule and Anne communicated questions, issues, instructions very well. I would hire Anne again.
Anne was outstanding by every metric.
Because she's fantastic overall. Will be using her again!
Anne has been terrific to work with.
Anne saved me literally weeks of work. She helped me get rid of unneeded stuff, set up my sites so all is working and functional, gave me wise advice, and provided pointers for moving ahead. I will definitely seek her help again if I need it.
Anne has been consistent and patience with our testing, feedback and changes. She has been a delight to work with and carries a professional approach born from extensive experience.
Anne was easy to work with and knew what she was doing. She responded to my questions in a timely manner and was very helpful. I am very pleased with her work.
Anne was great to work for. Got me the research and recommendations I was seeking and for that I'm grateful! Thanks, Greg
