I am available on evenings and weekends. As a contract web developer at the Federal Aviation Administration, I am usually not available during normal business hours.
Email is my preferred method of communication, as it provides an unambiguous record of correspondence.
Work items are completed in the order in which they are received. When sending work items, it is always helpful to include the URL of the page/section needing attention.
Web development tasks
Web development is an umbrella term that comprises the following tasks. These tasks are performed in varying degrees depending upon the scope of the project and the requirements of the client:
- Markup (HTML, XML)
- CSS coding
- Back-end development and templating, e.g., PHP
- Content editing and maintenance
- Findability/search engine optimization/search engine marketing
- Page layout
- Graphic design
- Image editing and production
- Information architecture and database management
- User interface testing/knowledge
- Accessibility testing/knowledge
Timekeeping and invoicing
Time is kept in quarter-hour or 20-minute increments, with a quarter-hour minimum for any work item or batch of work items. I stand behind my work; any mistakes will be corrected at no charge.
My hourly rate is $65 and is applicable to all web development tasks. This rate was last increased on June 1, 2012.
Invoices are submitted monthly or as circumstances warrant. If you use Vatsana Brundage for your graphic design work, you may receive one combined invoice from us unless you request otherwise.
The balance is due upon receipt of the invoice. Unpaid balances will be considered “past due” after 30 days. "Past due" balances may be subject to a monthly late fee of 2% of the outstanding balance.
Payment can be made by check, with cash (in person), as well as with all major credit cards through Amazon Payments. Checks should be made out to Matthew Brundage.
Existing clients will receive a one-hour credit on their next invoice for each new client that they refer to me. There is no limit to the number of credits that a client may earn.
