Jay Huang

Who is this guy?

I am a freelance web developer and consultant currently based in Vancouver, B.C. After touching a computer for the first time 6 years ago and discovering the internet, I have been pursuing my interest of developing for the web.

Since then, I've worked with many software development companies, consulting firms, creative studios, and even individuals. I look to establish an amiable professional relationship with my clients, and to maintain that relationship for as long as we see fit.

Some of you may know me as the co-founder of Windows7Center.com and Windows8Center.com, which I worked on from 2008 to 2011. Or you may know me from various conferences such as DefCon, Blackhat, or Google I/O. Or even further back, from the few popular forums I had the pleasure of moderating.

If you're looking to work with me, you should probably know about the experiences of clients who have already done so. Take a look below.

What my clients say:
“When I look for a developer, I’m looking for someone who’s highly intelligent, able to turn a hand to anything, and is not afraid to point out flaws or try to improve something. Jay is brilliant at spotting problems before they exist and pulling in his experience and putting it to work on your project. His work ethic and dedication is second to none. I’d recommend Jay to anyone.”

—John Harrison

“Jay is an excellent programmer. He proved to quickly understand the business drivers and developed applications to meet our needs with little of the usual specification detail required by most developers. He’s independent and takes a great deal of pride in his work as was evident by his continued strive to improve system performance. It was a pleasure to work with him.”

—Mitchell Ferguson

“We asked Jay to come train our Denver staff on some security best practices after he demonstrated an exploit in our online billing system. Despite being quite young, he has delivered better results than many of our previous consultants and has been a pleasure to work with.”

—Sylvie Cordeiro

“Our team has been working with Jay for almost 7 months. His high attention to detail and understanding of the business has made him one of our most valued consultants. Jay worked on several projects during the year, but I was most impressed by his work leading our team to re-design and turn our website fully mobile-compatible. While on this project, Jay was efficient and comfortable both as an independent developer and member of a large cross functional team as he drove features and requirements. He also produced high quality code, within the scope and schedule of the project.”

—Patrick Flynn

“Jay is bar none the best web consultant I've had the pleasure of working with. I can't say enough about how happy we are with the quality of his work on our website. We often had projects with unreasonably short turnaround times, but Jay always managed to take care of everything. Above all, he's a great communicator and a pleasure to work with.”

—Paul Rosenberg

“Jay did excellent work on a recent project for us. His development skills are exceptional and he delivered way ahead of schedule on what was already a tight timeline. Finally, he took the time to understand our business, and used his development skills to locate and fix issues we were unaware of previously. I highly recommend him and will hire him again.”

—Tiffany Trinh

“We threw Jay into something he had never seen before and asked him to develop detailed technical recommendations within a day or so. He reviewed our workflow and business, developed a thorough plan for implementation, and made sure our executive team was aware of any implications and trade-offs. Great job.”
