My work may not always be visible. Sometimes it's behind the scenes powering
recommendation systems, letting you know your systems are down before your
do or making sure different departments of your business get the insights
they need to make decisions.
Some projects that you can see:
I helped Getaway develop an internal employee webportal. This portal
allowed getaway employees to peform their daily tasks. This is a common requirement in growing
startups, that they need to build their own tooling to graduate off spreadsheets and adhoc
SK-II Japan store
I made the websites running in the video below. One powering 10 42" vertically mounted touchscreens. The second
website powering 5 vanity tables where customers could try out the skincare products.
I worked closely with world-class designers
that would deliver pictures and video of the desired effects.
The client was SK-II Japan subsidiary of proctor & gamble.
is a social mobile app. It is designed to connect you with people in your
neighborhood through events and profiles. It also has a b2b component where
local businesses can pay to promote their events in the local feed.
Free Code Camp
Free Code Camp
is one of the largest open source projects and coding schools in the world.
During my time in San Francisco I met Quincy Larson and helped develop the
mvp for FCC in Ruby on Rails. I also advised on the migration from RoR to
Node.js and MongoDB.
I helped start Capsule Pharmacy as the fifth engineer. I helped grow the
business from 50 beta users, through launch, through series A fundraising, through +20,000 monthly
active users. We built the consumer facing page with e-commerce flow, the internal corporate CMS
where 30+ persons performed 40+ hours of work per week, built a go api, built a django api, wrote
documentation for all code and processes/procedures, performed on-call duties (devops), wrote
sql reports for stakeholders and onboarded fellow engineers.
React Native Contacts
react-native-contacts was the first api bridge
for React Native that allowed you to load the phone's contacts. Oddly enough facebook chose
not to bridge this api and when I realized this for an app I was developing I solved
the problem and open sourced it. I still maintain the module and it's been interesting
seeing how react native has evolved over the years. It is written in Java and Objective-c.

Who I am
I am Harry Moreno a software engineer living in New York City. Born and raised
in The Bronx, I've lived in Massachusetts and San Francisco, but New York is my
home. Since 2013 I've worked with a wide range of companies, from
startups to world renowned marketing agencies. My focus is on delivering
flexible reliable software that is useful to people and improves their lives.
What I do
My experience is in growing small software companies into larger software
I specialize in solving unique problems with custom software. Whether that's
a phone app, headless cloud software or a website.
In general I prefer working on new projects where I can sit down with you and
elicit all the software requirements. This gives me the flexibility to
work with the best tools for the job.
Elicit requirements. I sit down with you (over the phone or face to face).
We discuss your needs and I write down notes.
Estimate. After eliciting requirements you send $200 for a detailed estimate.
I sit down on my own and break down the product
requirements into small technical tasks with a time estimate. I get back to you with
a detailed project proposal on how to achieve the business goals,
estimated cost and a timeline for the project.
Build. If the timeline and cost are acceptable to us we begin the
project. I usually require a portion of the budget at the beginning,
after major milestones and at the end.
What I charge
I generally work on an daily rate. For clients that prefer a flat-fee we can
discuss that on a case by case basis.
