Remote / Glasgow, Scotland

Hello, I'm Fraser Murray.

Based in Glasgow, Scotland, a freelance Laravel Certified PHP developer with varied client portfolio from 19 years in commercial, academic and charity sectors.

Availability

I have limited availability for additional work on remote Laravel or PHP website work, code auditing or mentoring to complement existing long-term projects that have variable but predictable monthly commitments.

  • Currently, this would be for an ongoing relationship on a part-time basis for a few days per month.

Hourly rate: £54

Usual working hours: 9:30-5 (Tues), 9:30-3 (Mon, Fri), 9:30-11:30 (Wed, Thurs), to fit around existing school drop-off/pick-ups, plus some additional evening/weekend hours if necessary.

Current working hours: during the pandemic I likely won't be keeping consistent working hours and it may take longer to answer support tickets than normal.
