Application instructions in job posting

I am in need of a freelancer who can make a desktop program look like a usable piece of software. I am developing Windows software in Python/Qt. My client is a large financial services outfit. The software under development has a workflow very much like Excel or a forms-based database front-end.

You should be comfortable with multiple tools to do your work, or using no tools at all. Also, you should be good. Real good.

If you're interested in this job, please send me the following:

  • Your Holy Works
  • At least two pieces of work clearly articulating your UI skills. They should be things you did for different people: from two different jobs, two different clients, etc. It should be wholly original work.

    If you've only one client, but multiple excellent pieces of work for them, I'll still take it -- on the condition that I be allowed to follow up with the client (employer) personally.

  • Your Holy Books
  • I'd like to know the top books/blogs/sources/people that you feel exemplify your approach to the user experience. No more than 5, please.


    This is an hourly, part-time contract and is expected to go on for a number of months. If you're good, and enjoy the work, there are other opportunities within the company: more projects from this client, other clients, internal jobs, etc.

    If you work from outside Seattle, you are expected to be able to use at least one instant messaging system in order to collaborate.

    Please send no resume. Doing so will indicate that you're not serious about this job, and you will be ignored.
