About

Hi, My name is Jim MacDiarmid. I’m a full-stack freelance developer in Manassas, Virginia and specialize in PHP-based custom website and web application development. I work with small businesses, startups, and non-profit organizations and provide services such as custom design and development, redesign of an existing site, logo design and branding and eCommerce solutions. While most of my experience is in Software and Web Development, I have over twenty years of hands-on professional experience across multiple disciplines including:
  • PC Technician (Repair and Assembly)
  • PC Quality Assurance Tech
  • PC Quality Assurance Supervisor
  • Network Administrator
  • Network Systems Integration Specialist
  • Software Release Engineer
I enjoy designing and coding custom websites and web applications that are mobile-first responsive and user-friendly while maintaining security and cross-browser compatibility. Most of all, I enjoy developing solutions. Especially solutions that increase your conversion rate and get you more customers! Currently, I specialize in the Laravel 5+ framework and WordPress 5. Other technologies, tools, and concepts include PHP 7+, MySQL, SQLite, CSS3, JSON, JavaScript, JQuery, Bootstrap 4, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Remote Development

Being a freelance developer, allows me to provide services and personable 1-on-1 support at a lower cost than you would normally get if you chose a large design company. If you’re not local to me, that’s not a problem. Being a freelance developer also allows me to work entirely  100% remotely from home. However, you must be in the United States.
