As a freelance consultant and developer, with a broad range of skills and experience, I can work closely with your organisation to understand the technical challenges of your projects, and provide a cost-effective, personal, tailored service to meet your objectives.

Technical Consultancy

With 20+ years commercial experience in technology and software development, I can help your organisation assess current systems, analyse project requirements and generally advise on the best options available to deliver excellent solutions.

Solution Development

Everything from customisation and enhancement of existing systems, data/GIS analysis and visualisation, developer resources for current teams/projects, through to full design and implementation of bespoke websites and mobile applications.

Conservation and Sustainability

Academic background in computer science and marine biology, professional links with conservation agencies, and a passion for environmental sustainability, so ideally placed to offer technical assistance to conservation and environmental oriented organisations and projects.

A bit more info about my experience, the background of MPApps, and my working methodology

  • Experienced Freelance Developer

    MPApps is owned/operated by Andy Jeffrey, a freelance technical consultant and solution developer based in London, UK, with over 20 years experience as a software engineer, and a strong personal interest in conservation and environmental sustainability related projects and organisations. View Andy's LinkedIn Profile

  • Proven Technical Background

    I have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, which was followed by 15+ years in various software engineering and development roles, including a number of years working with cutting-edge technologies on the market leading e-commerce/grocery website for the UK's largest retailer.

  • Mixing Technology and Conservation

    Returned to university to study for a Masters degree in Marine Biology and Conservation, undertaking a research project (in conjuction with IUCN) focussing on how new technologies, particularly mobile apps, could be applied to help marine protected areas (MPAs) and other conservation projects.

  • Tailored Consultancy and Development

    Since then, I have worked as a freelance technology consultant and developer, offering a range of services from assessment and enhancement of current systems, analysis of new project requirements, prototyping/mock-ups and full development of website and mobile app solutions. Most projects start by discussing the technical problems or objectives after which I can advise on the best options available and how to implement a suitable solution.

  • Projects Large or Small, Especially Good Causes

    Depending on the project needs/size, I can work independently on whole projects or specific aspects, bring in other (carefully selected) freelancers and developers, or as part of a team with existing staff/developers. I'm particularly interested in working on projects with an environment or social benefit, but will consider most opportunities, as there are often ways that a technical solution (or the skills learnt) can be re-used or applied to other "good causes".
