My name’s Fred Wu, I’m an experienced Elixir developer who has worked on multiple commercial projects as well as released multiple Hex packages.
I work at a fintech startup in Australia as CTO, leading a small team. In the past few days I’ve decided to start moonlighting again, especially now that I’ve been working from home since Covid and has more time and flexibility. I can commit about 20-30 hours a week.
I’d been using Elixir professionally for a few years, lead and built multiple commercial B2B & B2C SaaS projects. Until recently I’ve always been very hands on, and have worked with multiple tech stacks in the past, including Ruby, JS and PHP, and most recently Clojure at the startup I’m currently working at.

As you probably noticed I have quite a few projects on Github. Some of the more interesting ones are:
- Crawler, a high performance web crawler built in Elixir: GitHub - fredwu/crawler: A high performance web crawler in Elixir.
- Simple Bayes, a naive bayes machine learning implementation in Elixir: GitHub - fredwu/simple_bayes: A Naive Bayes machine learning implementation in Elixir.
- OPQ, a simple in-memory queue with worker pooling and rate limiting in Elixir: GitHub - fredwu/opq: A simple, in-memory queue with worker pooling and rate limiting in Elixir.
- And a few years ago when I was heavily involved in the ruby/rails community, I had done an experimental project building a “layer 0” ORM on top of ActiveRecord and Sequel: GitHub - fredwu/datamappify: Compose, decouple and manage domain logic and data persistence separately. Works particularly great for composing form objects!
If you think my skills and experience could add value to the project I’d love to chat more. You could reach me at ifredwu at gmail dot com. Thanks!
