Bio

Hey there, my name's Rich Field. I'm a Full Stack Web Developer with a passion for the front end. I've developed software for flight simulators, fire alarms and the web; for companies both large and small. I specialise in building web applications that are fast and responsive. I love to learn. When I'm not learning, or coding, I'm usually outside. If I'm doing none of the above, I'll be drinking coffee, baking or enjoying a tasty beverage.

Endorsements

I was looking for someone to create a website for my Celebrancy business then I found Rich, called him and the rest is history. He created a wonderful website for me, I found him to be very helpful, professional and prompt. I would recommend him if you are wanting a really good job done.

Andre Oertel

We hired Rich to build a prototype of our software product and he has done an amazing job. With great communication, sharp skills and an ability to produce high quality work, he has been an incredible asset to our small team. Rich makes valuable contributions and we look forward to continuing the relationship.


Harry Twyford - Co-Founder Udegree

Rich was an important part of our business and was a professional team player with a strong work ethic. Rich played a key part in driving improvements in our development practices and his experience and front end skills will be missed!


Jon Kalaugher - Founder & Director of Flowingly

Rich is a vital part of our team. He’s the lead in the development of a web app that will allow us to scale internationally. For us, his strength lies in his ability to understand what we need both now, and in the future, and translate that into a solution that makes our and our partners lives easy. I can honestly say that without his passion, professionalism and commitment we wouldn’t be even remotely close to where we are today.


Janette Searle - Founder Take My Hands

I created the Lilliput Libraries project three years ago and there’s always been a ‘if only I could map them’ on my ‘would like, but improbable’ wish list. Earlier this year Rich contacted me to say he’d discovered the libraries while staying in Dunedin and wondered if he could be of help by providing a LL map. My response was an unreserved YES. So a remote connection was made with Rich listening to my wishes and willingly making modifications as I changed my mind, frequently! He built me a LL map site with capabilities beyond my hopes – it covers NZ when I only expected Dunedin. I’m thrilled with the result. Our LL guardians and users are ecstatic our project has been mapped. Thanks Rich, it’s been a pleasure having your wonderful skills and talents in a very generous voluntary capacity.
