Andrew Palumbo

20+ Years in Software Development and Management

With well over 100 projects behind me, I help people get custom software projects done and working. I specialize in crisis intervention on existing projects and in helping non-technical people work with the freelancers and vendors they’ve already hired. I also help other freelancers succeed with their projects, clients, and career more generally. I’ve done work for Google and Apple as well as for people just struggling with their first attempt at making an app or website. It’s helping these small, individual clients that makes me the most happy! | 626-375-7084 | LinkedIn | Pasadena, CA (Remote)
