Laravel Consultant for your existing & new Laravel projects

Professional Journey

Who am I?

I am a solution and business automation architect with over 15 years of experience. My approach goes beyond writing code; I actively collaborate with clients to analyze requirements and propose optimal solutions. Instead of simply following instructions, I proactively seek out better, more cost-effective approaches that prioritize future scalability and flexibility.

My impeccable rating on on People per Hour reflects my commitment to transparent communication, honesty, and fostering authentic connections with clients. I have had the privilege of working with numerous small businesses, helping them enhance, fix, or upgrade existing Laravel projects. My aim is not just to deliver solutions, but to architect them in a way that ensures long-term success and adaptability, providing value beyond initial requirements.

More about my work


I write maintainable, self-explained and well-documented code supported by automated tests. Working with such an approach allows me to upgrade code easily, add new features, and I have experienced fewer bugs while doing it. Those things are immensely crucial for clients whose projects are already in production.

I am deeply committed to staying updated with the latest coding techniques and industry trends. As a naturally curious individual, I am constantly seeking new ways to enhance code quality and efficiency. This dedication to ongoing learning enables me to provide my clients with innovative solutions that meet their evolving needs and expectations.

My Testimonials

From my clients on People per hour

"Seriously amazing!"

Janez is capable, reliable, dependable and very supportive. I run a small business in London and was looking for someone "remote" who could do the IT bits for me- setting up the back end for websites etc. I found Janez here on PPH and I must say all my concerns about working remotely were proved to be unfounded- he has always been available and I quickly felt I could trust him with my project. I was right to place my trust in him as he has delivered some excellent results- while helping me understand how it all works behind the scenes- he must have great patience! Very impressed - Thank you

"Excellent work!"

As ever with Janez. On this occasion integrating a content API feed with a PHP-based CMS that he hadn't encountered previously. Deal with quickly and efficiently, great comms and understanding. Very highly recommended.
