I do not care about your experience. Rather, I am interested in your ability to solve difficult problems creatively, efficiently, and effectively.

In other words, I don't care if you have any experience with Python, nor with MicroPython, nor do with the ESP32 microcontroller. However, I do care if you are very intelligent, very creative, and very good at solving challenging engineering problems.


You will help me transform my functional specification into a technical specification. Then I will purchase two ESP32 development boards (and two breadboards, and two sets of sensors, etcetera) to help you when you are debugging.

Please imagine the following hypothetical chat between you and I...

You: "I think the ESP32 development board you bought for me on AliExpress is bad!"

Me: "Do you think both of them bad?"

You: "Oh. Ummm. Well, actually... I replicated the problem on both of the ESP32 development boards. I found a bug in my code. Sorry."

Me: "I am glad I bought two ESP32 development boards for you."

You: "Yes. That was a good idea."

In my experience, when engineers encounter a vexing problem they tend to blame an external factor. Also, of course, cheap electronics purchased on AliExpress often have flaws.


By paying you hourly and limiting the number of hours you work at a time, I would be able to avoid the need to create detailed specifications for you because I would be able to regularly check on the work you were doing for me.

In theory detailed project requirements with milestone payments seem sensible. But I have found in practice they are actually not usually feasible. In my experience, detailed project requirements with milestone payments typically lead to misunderstandings, resentment and discord.
