Rates

A typical contract is for 1 month of work. I am normally booked 1 to 3 months in advance.

I'm open to shorter contracts, but prefer longer ones. For a shorter contract, we'll divide my monthly rate by the number of days you want, and add a small amount of overhead.

Please note that work will be conducted in accordance with my ethics policy.

"Kevin came in for a week and went over our entire backend. He found a bunch of security holes, helped us set up better ops practices, and figured out ways to improve our database performance. In the end, everything was running smoother and more secure. We call him the one-man S.W.A.T. team for SF startups, and already booked his next available slot 👍" - Ivan Zhao, Co-founder
