"Steve is one of the most talented, committed and capable tech leads I have ever worked with. His incredible work ethic, expertise in technology and unique ability to assess a problem from multiple points of view have been instrumental."

Shib Mathew – CEO of YunoJuno

"Steve is one of those rare people that have a combination of great software development skills as well as fantastic 'soft' skills. He is the sort of glue that keeps good teams together."

Eleni Lixourioti – Senior developer

"Steve has an exceptional tech brain but remains one of the warmest, friendliest people you'll ever meet. He's one of the best tech leads I've ever worked under"

Marcel Kornblum – Head of Creative Technology at BBH London

"Steve not only built robust, complex software, but approached the task with a level of care, diligence and emotional investment that I wouldn’t always get from a full-time employee. He is clear-thinking, supremely amiable and extremely capable."

Nick Thistleton – MD, Lucky Voice

About

I’m Steve Jalim, a UK-based software developer and tech lead.

I work for my own company, Some Fantastic, where we make
interesting new things, primarily for startups and usually on the web.

I’m experienced in building and/or leading the development of high-quality full-stack web applications, using distributed teams and modern, agile project management techniques.

My preferred tools include Django, Python 3, Javascript (ES6, Vue.js), Postgres and Redis. (I'm also quite taken with Elixir and Elm.)

I also literally wrote the book on being a freelance developer.
