AS/400 RPG IV ILE DB2 Development



As an independent contractor or full time employee, provides unique and rapid development of software solutions for small and large business projects, at a rate small companies can afford.

I am positioned to offer a bill rate 30+ percent lower than my competitors in North America! How is this possible? Think Direct! I eliminate the overhead by excluding the middle man who inflates my rate for the exact same service. This allows me to invoice your company the same rate I bill the recruiting/consulting firms, passing the savings to you.
