Hi, I'm Laura Mosher.

I am a queer autistic software engineer with over a decade of experience in software engineering, programming, project management, and leading teams.

I enjoy problem solving, puzzles, reading, and building things — both on the computer and tangible materials. My cat Piper is the inspiration for my logo.

Software Engineering

Need someone to build your idea? Perhaps you are you looking for an additional programmer to join your team? Or maybe you need custom software development? I have experience building robust custom software solutions for higher education to healthcare tech, with consultancies, startups, and large enterprises.

Software Architecture

Do you have an idea but aren't sure how to get started building it? Architecting software solutions is a lot like solving a puzzle. I have experience with transforming ideas into technical software solutions that teams can execute against.

Maintenance and Operations

Did you just finish a project, but are wondering how to maintain it going forward? Do you have a project that has some technical debt that needs some love? I have experience with infrastructure and operations as well as debugging, fixing, and maintaining older codebases.

Organized and Efficient

“Laura is a standout software engineer. She has the required technical expertise, is an incredibly fast learner, and can ship any project that she takes on. But what truly takes her to a higher level is her skill in raising the bar for her team in non-technical areas. She is an excellent communicator, both written and verbal, and is always pursuing clarity when there is confusion or ambiguity. It is unfortunately rare to meet someone that lives their values, but Laura is such a person: she is a true leader that embodies her values in each and every action. She is a strong advocate for people and makes any team or company she is a part of better. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.״

Creative and Reliable

“Laura helped my website go from good to fantastic! She's been invested in the project since day one and brings SO much more to the table than your typical software engineer. Laura looks at the whole picture to see how the design, user experience, security, and architecture of the website flows together. If you bring her a general idea of what you want, she takes that idea and improves upon it in ways you never would have thought of. I'm so thankful for her clear instruction, communication, and leadership with helping me overhaul my entire website!״
