Dear LRUG,

I'm an experienced Ruby developer looking for freelance work from late
January 2017.

I used to be a member of the Ruby on Rails core team, and have spent
four and a half years as Tech Director at https://loco2.com/. You can
find out more about me here: http://www.jonathanleighton.com/

I have experience and skills in lots of areas, but I am particularly
good at:

* Identifying and resolving architectural problems in code bases
* Mentoring other developers
* Building solid foundations for new projects

I also have experience of "devops" stuff (Docker, Terraform, AWS, ....)

Outside of tech, I'm interested in social issues such as new economics,
climate change and political engagement - I'd be really interested to
hear about any projects in these sorts of areas.


PS. I used to live in London, but these days I'm based in North Wales.
Whilst I could definitely meet up with you in London (or elsewhere), I
wouldn't be able to regularly come to a London office. At Loco2 I helped
build a fully-remote technical team, so I have plenty of experience of
effective remote working.
