Dan Bruder

Software Developer

I am a software developer focused on client results.

I care about everything that brings those results: product roadmapping, user experience, performance, quality code, test coverage, reliable deployment, uptime, meeting budget and controlling scope, pragmatism and gumption.

I prefer demos over presentations, I like shipping MVPs quickly, and I like to celebrate clients' success together.

I'm available for contracts for web application development. I prefer Elixir/Phoenix and ReactJS, but am comfortable in a number of technologies. Email me here: dan@debassociates.com.

I have 7 years professional software development experience - 5 of which have been client facing as an application consultant.

My work includes:

  • websites with 20k+ monthly visitors
  • content managed application with 30k+ entities
  • multi-million dollar custom e-commerce application
  • an influence growth platform
  • landlord management application
  • non-profit annual report SPA
  • a touch screen kiosk

I have also shipped multiple embedded firmware projects:

  • a fuel pump motor driver that cut production cost with higher efficiency
  • USB-C power delivery compliant charger for automotive and furniture industries
  • cloud enabled environmental sensor

I care deeply about my clients' success. Together we take steps to make sure we are building the right product - one that solves real world problems effectively.

Once we are working together, I communicate frequently and clearly, demoing progress along the way. I communicate risks and problems as soon as they arise. Open honest communication is best.

After launch I provide hosting and maintainence services to keep my clients' running.

I live in Hudsonville, MI with my wife and three kids. I love reading, learning, and playing guitar. On the weekends there's a good chance you'll see us at the Downtown Market.
