When I left the hedge fund I was working for a couple of years ago (boy, does that look like a good decision now), I decided not to seek full time employment any more but rather to try my hand at consulting, concentrating on PostgreSQL work. I formed a company Dunslane Consulting LLC and made my availability known to a few people. Since then I have managed to keep pretty steadily in work, without much effort. I've not had to go looking for work - it has tended to find me at just the right times.
However, the things you can do as a single consultant are limited. Some engagements require a number of roles, and for that I am often either technically or temperamentally unsuited (I have sworn never to work on a GUI again, nor on release management.) That's where PostgreSQL Experts Inc comes in. A number of people have got together to form this company, which is aimed at providing full service to PostgreSQL users, from setup to tuning to administration to application development. We have some people who are pretty well known in the PostgreSQL community, including Josh Berkus, our CEO, and David Wheeler and David Fetter, as well as your humble blogger, so we believe that potential customers will have confidence that they are getting the best when they come to us. Hence our name
Feel free to call me or Josh or any of our other consultants if you need more information. Or check us out at pgCon
