About Tim Carr

Tim CarrAs the founder and sole trader of n7 Studios, I’m an experienced WordPress & Laravel Developer, Engineer and Consultant with over 10 years commercial experience. My focus is on technically challenging and rewarding projects, such as:

  • Complex e-commerce setups with EDD and WooCommerce
  • High traffic WordPress sites (2 million hits/month+)
  • Large datasets and performance in WordPress (15 million records+)
  • Data scraping, standardisation and APIs through Laravel, with WordPress integration
  • API integrations (payment processors, CRM, mailing lists)
  • Extending WordPress Plugins and functionality (Gravity Forms, User Registration)

My client’s WordPress web sites are visited by tens of millions of people per month, and the software products and solutions I’ve built in WordPress have been installed over half a million times.

My work is a mix of my own projects, and client businesses.  This has included:

  • Lead development for MyEd.com (WordPress, Laravel, third party data, third party integrations)
  • Lead development for two major WordPress Plugins with a mid-6 figures/year USD income
  • Redevelopment and performance maintenance for a 10 million hits/month+ WordPress web site
  • Founder, lead development and maintenance of commercial WordPress Plugins at WP Zinc, WP Simple SEO, WP Affiliate Linker and Media Library Organizer

For those who love technical jargon, my skillset includes:

  • HTML5
  • CSS / SASS / SCSS
  • Javascript
  • Javascript Frameworks: jQuery, Backbone
  • PHP
  • WordPress Development (bespoke themes, plugins, site builds, integrations)
  • WordPress Consultancy
  • WooCommerce
  • Laravel 5
  • TDD

For development workflows, I typically use:

  • Git (SVN for wordpress.org Plugins)
  • Gulp
  • CircleCI / Deploybot

This is by no means an exhaustive list – if you have specific requirements for your project, please get in touch and let’s see if I can help.
