Saying yes to cause-focused organizations
I love supporting charities, non-profits, social enterprises, and other organizations devoted to making a positive difference in the world.
To a few of these organizations I offer reduced rates, plus I keep an amount of pro-bono days in stock for consultation and development.
Saying yes to open source
Sharing is caring, especially when it comes to producing social impact. Others have made the open source case for businesses, I don't need to here. I offer reduced rates on projects that heavily use open-source or go open-source themselves.
Saying no to exploitation
I do not work with organizations who exploit human rights, are associated with the industrial military complex, harvest unmanaged natural resources, or are involved in cruelty to animals.
Keeping it simple
Technology that no one can use is not just wasted time and effort, it's wrong. I want my work for you to be ready to use, like you need it, right away. I'll keep the solutions I deliver to you as simple as possible. When it is time to grow, I'll ensure that growth is thought out and straight-forward.
Doing what's right
I don't mean to sound judgemental with this statement. Integrity and professionalism in business are my priorities, and being open about which projects and clients align with my values is part of that. Contact me directly if you have any comments or questions about this ethical statement.
