Hi there, my name is Nick Rempel and I'm a freelance software developer with a focus on SaaS products and cross-platform mobile applications. I've been building experiences on the internet for about a decade.
On my most recent project, I was one of the co-creators and maintainer of Hyperledger Aries Cloud Agent Python. I did this work for the province of British Columbia for their Verifiable Organizations Network initiative. The project heavily utilizes the Hyperledger Indy blockchain technology with the goal of making it easier for developers to create decentralized identity services.
Previously I was the co-founder and head of software for my own company Servmetrics (now defunct). The product offered real-time analytics to restaurants for food delivery. A short survey was delivered to the restaurant's customer at the time of delivery via a link in a text message. While we were able to attract some exciting customers like Little Caesars Australia, we ultimately did not succeed and closed the business in 2017.
I also maintain a weekly email newsletter, job board, and blog for everything related to working less than 40 hours per week permanently and making this a societal norm. You can learn more about it at 30 Hour Jobs.
I believe in a top-down approach to software design where the customer needs inform the technical requirements of the project, not the other way around. I believe in strong communication, mentorship, and accountability.
When I’m not building software, I enjoy traveling the world (usually) and exploring where I live—beautiful Vancouver Island. I also enjoy photography and music as hobbies. I'm also active on Twitter if you want to get in touch.
