Michael Melanson

Hi! 👋 I'm Michael and I've been building software professionally since 2001. In that time I've shipped products for companies big and small including Amazon, Shopify, Entrust, Kobo, Cisco, Avaya, and WinZip.

I specialize in building reliable, easy to use, accessible software for the Web.

How I think about software

More than any technology, I believe that the route to good software is all about people and processes:

Development services

I'm available for hire on a freelance and consulting basis!

I work in a variety of technologies and this is not an exhaustive list. If you have a specific request, let me know.

Full-stack web development

Do you have an idea for SaaS or internal web application you need built? Do you have a Ruby on Rails application you want to take to the next level? I'll get it done.

Front-end web development

Do you have a web service that needs an amazing web front-end? I can build it for you. I'll make sure it's efficient, looks great, and is fully accessible.

Consulting services

Do you need advice from an expert web developer? Do you not know where to start on your application, and need a plan? I'd be glad to help you figure out a path forward.

Next step

I'd be glad to have a quick chat to get to know you and how I can help you. I look forward to hearing from you!
