Trusted by early-stage companies and founders
Hi! I'm Ruan, a product-minded developer with over 11 years of experience. I’ve also done plenty of design and product management without ever holding the title.
I build web applications that make sense, look good, and perform well.
As a freelancer, I work with early-stage companies and founders – either building products from scratch, or leveling-up their existing ones. Through experience and pragmatism, I help them move the needle on real business goals.
I’m an expert at React, Next.js, Astro, and Node.js. I have desgined, built, and maintained dozens of applications with these technologies. I often write about them on my blog .
"What makes Ruan stand out is that he actually cares about the work he does. He wants each line of code to be his best work. Not in a I'll-take-my-own-sweet-time kind of way. But in a I-want-to-help-the-business-succeed kind of way."
"We fully enjoyed working with Ruan! He is very communicative and proactive, often bringing in his own ideas and he doesn’t shy away from going the extra mile."
