about me

my name is Ciarán Foley. I currently live and work most of the time in Budapest, HU.

Over the past 15 years I've worked on a wide variety of projects large and small. I started as a designer/coder when there was very little distinction between those 2 roles. As the frontend became more mature I switched my focus to Javascript. To supplement my frontend knowledge I began learning Ruby on Rails and PHP about 7 years ago and can easily hold my own with databases too. I also have a knack for scraping large amounts of data.

HTML/CSS & Design 15 years +

JavaScript 9 Years

Ruby on Rails 7 years

Data harvesting/Scraping 3 years

ReactJS 1 year

What I Do

Frontend Development

Using cross browser JavaScript along with clean and scalable HTML & CSS.

Backend Development

My prefered framework is Ruby on Rails but I have worked with Python, Laravel, PHP, Java, ColdFusion and .NET

Social Marketing

Do you need ads on Facebook or sponsored Pins? I can run your social media marketing campaigns.

WordPress Development

From initial installations to theme revamps to customization.

Fixing messes

Sometimes all you need is a fresh pair of eyes. Maybe it's a missing comma, maybe something bigger. I'll take a look.

US or EU clients

I'm a dual Irish and US citizen so I am fully legal to work in either the US or the Schengen Area

I've worked on

I worked closely with Ciaran on several projects for Gartner. He's got a broad background, a positive attitude, strong proficiency in the fundamentals of end-to-end development and a tremendous capacity to pick up new technologies on cutting edge projects. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him every day for nearly a year on Gartner's client-facing properties, including a complex React.js site that Ciaran contributed to immensely. You'll be rewarded greatly by having him on your team!

Michael Sean McDade

Frontend/UX Specialist

I worked with Ciaran for roughly 6 months when he was a front end developer for the product I was managing. Ciaran was our go-to man for coding HTML emails, which are notoriously tricky across email clients and mobile devices. Despite the challenges, I can't recall a single significant UI problem with any of those emails during Ciaran's tenure. He maintained a positive attitude, had a great work ethic, and could always be counted on for a fun conversation over a beer after work. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors!

Perry Swergold

Product Manager

Ciaran is an exceptional designer. His knowledge and skills with HTML5. CSS3, jQuery and JavaScript put him in a class above most designers I've worked with in the past 2 decades in this business. His understanding of backend technologies, such as Ruby and mySQL, make it easier for a developer like myself to interface with him. Ciaran's unwillingness to settle for "the same old thing" when it comes to his designs help to keep projects looking cutting edge.

Thomas Badera

Sr. Software Developer

Resourceful, talented, dedicated, strategic, easy going and a great team player. Ciaran and I have known each other for years and have worked on multiple projects together in the past. He's trustworthy and passionate about design, technology and innovations. If you're looking for a reliable team player who is dynamic and works well under pressure, he's the guy for you.
