2015 - holiday substitute available, get in touch :)

Yes, I work on short notice!

Support and WP development is my full time job, so I’m available whenever you need me.
Are you just looking for a 2 week holiday substitute? I can jump in for you!
Did your team member just quit and you need replacement fast or someone who will hold everything together while you recruit? I can start working within 24 hours!

As much as my time is flexible…

… as well are my rates! Depending on your sales and preferences I can work on a hourly rate, a monthly/weekly fixum, on a percentage provision from your sales or a combination of the above! We can talk it all out.

If you expect to go on vacation a few months from now or if you are expecting a staff switch, feel free to shoot me a message, get to know me and know you can rely on me whenever you need help!

«Dear Mel, your job was timely and very helpful. It deserves all my appreciation. I am sure your job done here will fetch you more offers. Take care»

-Marcel – UnitedThemes

«We have worked with Melanie in the past at GuuThemes, as our Head of Support, and found her to be an easygoing, knowledgable, honest and professional asset to our team. Nothing was too much of an ask from Mel, and she showed a truly professional, and compassionate approach to dealing with buyers of our themes when support questions arose.»

Mark – guuthemes

«Melanie’s patience and calmness while dealing with “difficult’ customers (which you and me always had and always will have) is priceless and something that I appreciated the most, right after her professional approach and knowledge of WordPress and themes. If you’re looking for someone to help you with your pile of support tickets, look no further cause you won’t find anyone better.»

I’m Mel,

an experienced ex-themeforest author (10+ items), a self employed full time support staff and a loyal, dedicated and competent partner.

Currently I’m proudly representing mother Envato as a Help Officer in their Support System and I’m taking care of the lovely customers of the ever-rocking getbowtied team.

My vacation substitute cooperations (on offer since the end of 2014):

  • UXBarn

My previous full time support cooperations include:

  • UnitedThemes
  • ThemeSector
  • SwiftIdeas
  • themefusion
  • freshface
  • minti
  • guuthemes
  • purethemes
  • two2twelve
  • stmcan
  • artbees
  • DMThemes

My previous premium support cooperations include Pixelentity’s forum.

I also collaborated with several authors on themeforest for development projects and/or themes, theme conversions or bugfixes.

Due to my extensive experience with both developing themes as a former marketplace author, developing client websites and of course through the support forum I am a highly professional expert in the field of WordPress theming with all its companions.

customization or modification projects
By hiring me you not only get a professional developer, you get a friendly, reliable and dedicated partner who not only helps you to fully enjoy your website, but is also there for you after the project, in case any bugs or questions occur that are bound to the customization.

support staff
By hiring me as your support help you will not only boost your reputation, you will also be able to let go of support and focus on more important things, like developing new themes and – of course – life itself.

Let me take care of it :)

… And I love you too! (“Testimonials”)
