F. Malina — Python/JS Web Software Engineer and Developer

Hi, I am František (or Francis), the technical director of Etcetera Media Group and Flatmate Rooms Limited. I build things. When not getting some innocent adrenaline fix I am usually found in coffee shops, home and on client sites working on web systems and software, typing into command line, text editor or consulting on the phone.

Based in Billinge in the North West of England, regularly migrating to London and such places.

Many people like what I do

Hands-on technical work,
leadership by example.

“Frank is an all-round wizard! He worked officially as an information architect, and helped with taxonomy design and development. However it was obvious pretty quickly that he had a lot to offer across the scope of our work, and helped with software development (in Django, PHP, XSLT, JavaScript, bash scripting... whatever it took to get things done), database design, analytics and even web server performance analysis.

I'd recommend Frank without hesitation for organisations that need people with good brains and the ability to have a go at almost anything.”

Dr Ian Piper, Information Architect, Director at Tellura Information Services, Author of Learn Xcode Tools for Mac OS X and iPhone Development

“Frank delivered great results for an SEO Campaign for Designer Pages. He really understands some of the more complicated voodoo behind search engine results and can articulate how to improve your visibility through simple changes. Would recommend and hire again.”
Top qualities: Good Value, On Time, High Integrity

Avi Flombaum, entrepreneur, founder of Desinger pages

Kevin Jones, top Manchester SEO, head of Tecmark

“I worked with František (or Frank as we knew him) on at least one large scale web development project at Northcliffe. His input on SEO and performance related issues was exceedingly thorough, detailed and technically strong. We gained a lot from his expertise in this area and I would recommend him for his in depth knowledge, experience and enthusiasm.”

John Armstrong-Prior, Senior Analyst/Programmer; A.N.Digital

“Frank has an excellent knowledge of SEO issues, and further to that, also an excellent understanding of how to develop, design and tune web sites to conform to SEO 'best practices'. He possesses excellent understanding of many open source solution platforms. In addition to all this, Frank is also easy to work with and generally a great guy to have on the team!”
