Welcome to HotSource, a team of New Zealand based developers specialising in all things web.
With decades of experience between us, we are the total package agency for your next project. With experience across eCommerce, content creation, customer service, client management, software engineering, and of course, all things website; you can be sure that there isn’t a bump-in-the-road or unexpected task that we can’t handle.
Why work with us?
You won’t find another agency on, or off this platform that offers what we do and I’ll tell you why; we’re Kiwis! We don’t know what it means to give up, and this is something that has driven us to be the best every day of every week for years. Just like Sir Edmund Hilary, part of the first team to climb Mt. Everest; there is no project too big. Or, how about Bruce McLaren the Kiwi that took his dreams overseas to establish one of the most successful Formula One teams ever; we build them fast, and we build them beautiful. Finally, Sir. Ernest Rutherford, who was awarded the coveted Nobel Prize in Chemistry before his research that led to the splitting of the atom; even at the top, there’s room to grow. It’s these New Zealanders, and countless others that drive us every day to be the best we can be: from unrivalled communication between our team and you (our future client), to our transparent billing system, and of course a finished product you’d be proud to share with everyone.
How we operate
Anyone that’s met someone from New Zealand will likely comment on their ability to fit in, their adaptability, and of course our beautiful accents. It’s these traits that you’ll benefit from no matter the size or scope of your project; ensuring maximum efficiency from the very first second. No matter the size or scope, you’re getting access to three experts for the price of one; and we’ll take care of managing our workload and updates related to your project securely, privately, and at no cost to you. We don’t believe in doing work a member of our team can do better, but we also don’t believe in billing for an internal process seperate to your project. It’s this core element of Hotsource that makes us stand out; three incredibly talented experts at the rate of one. The reason this works so well, is you get access to our communications expert; Michael, from start to finish who ensures the project stays on target whilst delegating tasks to the team.
My goal is to provide clients with solutions that use the latest tools, technologies, and innovations to improve their current website (or build a new one), save time, and grow their business.
Whether that’s by improving their conversion rates by optimizing loading times and user experience, automating tedious manual processes, or simply providing clients with a product that they enjoy using.
I believe that a website is never fully finished – there are always aspects of a website (and business) that can be improved and it is part of the development process to identify these areas and provide solutions.
From a young age, I have always thoroughly enjoyed the challenges in problem solving, and in my early teens, I discovered the perfect avenue for this in website development; every website brings about it’s own set of unique challenges to overcome, each with their own relative solutions. Self taught, I began creating free websites for my peers, using each project as an opportunity to learn and expand my knowledge. In the late 2000s, HotSource founder and Lead Developer, Matthew, provided me with an opportunity to take my passion for development to the next level, introducing me to bigger, more challenging projects, and furthered my education, in the form of countless courses, and first hand experiences.
10+ years later, and my core passion has not changed, though it has certainly diverged in direction. Whilst my passion still lays in problem solving, I am now specifically driven by the end result; Solving problems to achieve client goals. I have discovered great pleasure in realizing the vision of my clients, and firmly believe in the idea that no problem comes without a solution, and will strive to ensure said solution is not only the most efficient, but also the most beneficial to the client; solving not only the problem at hand, but providing/recommending improvements, advice, and alternatives where possible. As much as I love to learn, I love to teach, and enjoy leaving my clients with a better understanding of how everything works!
When I’m not working with clients, you’ll find me leading our internal projects that center around establishing a long-lasting identity for HotSource.
Jenny-Marie does a lot of work both behind the scenes to ensure that we continually reach (and exceed) our high customer service standards.
This includes overseeing all projects and tasks to ensure they get done on time and match the level of quality expected, talking to clients to gather feedback and keeping everyone focused.
# Recent Projects
Great communication and amazing work!! Matthew took this job that many others could not figure out and found solutions within a few days. Will definitely use him again, and would highly recommend!
Matthew has gone above and beyond in this project, and the results are even better than I expected! My aim was to improve the mobile speed optimisation on my brand new Wordpress theme. I've had a content-based Wordpress blog for 11 years, with fairly high traffic, and optimisation for SEO is very important to me. Finding someone who understands my questions and can answer them, and most importantly solve them, is awesome. I look forward to working with Matthew again.
Matthew Zalewski was a pleasure to work with. He made all the necessary changes to our website and we would use him again in the future.
Matthew and staff understood our needs and exceeded our expectations for load time and other performance metrics. They know SEO, and work quickly and for a reasonable price. Our website flies now, and I'm confident that our position in the SERPs will improve as a result. I'm glad we found them on Codeable and look forward to hiring them again.
Matthew's work results exceeded expectations and he was a pleasurxe to work with.
Mathew acheived more than what he was asked, he was able to dig deep in the core of the problem and solve issues as they came up. he really knows how to make your site fast. i highly recommend him
