James Adams

Senior Software Engineer

Freelance software engineer and IT consultant. I love helping clients solve problems and leverage technology to make their business more successful. I have a background web development and software engineering with over 12 years of experience. I have worked in a wide array of industries with client companies of all sizes, from tiny startups to huge enterprises, operating in a variety of industries. I specialize in full stack web development, RESTful web services, and integration projects. I'm looking for opportunities to use my skills and experience to solve new and interesting problems. I like a challenge, and the chance to learn new things, whether new technologies, or new industries. I particularly like working with small companies that need someone with a broad skill set, who can wear a lot of hats, but am also open to working with larger companies.
