Let’s collaborate

TL;DR I partner with startups and companies as an extention to the marketing / design teams. I’m available for short-term or long-term projects. Let’s connect!

I’m Hugues, a freelance senior web developer working for the past 15+ years with brands and agencies of all sizes building websites focusing on user experience, performance and accessibility. I care deeply about quality and results and can own the entirety of the marketing tech stack and collaborate with all stakeholders of the team.

Tasks I can help with

  • Build high-performance and accessible web pages.
  • Implement a headless CMS system to enable the team to ship faster autonomously.
  • Own the development of the website and all the customer facing web properties.
  • Support marketing and demand gen teams in all development activities.
  • Influence strategic decisions around the marketing tech stack.
  • Instrument data tracking to help analyze user acquisition, usage, and adoption after release.


I’m open to learn any new technology, but these are the usual suspects:

HTML, CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, Astro, Next.js, Gatsby, Eleventy, Sanity.

Street cred

A list of selected clients I had the opportunity to work with:

Some nice things said about me

Hugues has been a great partner to us. He’s acted as an embedded member of our team, participating in everything from strategy discussions to backlog grooming sessions. Hugues has contributed thoughtful suggestions, offered constructive feedback, and supported us through a significant website migration which included a new hosting provider, CMS, and a full redesign. He was proactive and responsive throughout the project, and eager to dive in. This wouldn’t have been a success without Hugues. I would 1000% work with him again!

Aileen Allen, VP of Marketing @ Tailscale

Collaborating with Hugues has been an exceptional experience! He is a reliable, with a high quality of craft and ability to handle diverse projects. His superpower is collaboration, and worked well with designers, product marketers, art directors and other engineers.

Kim Fellman Cohen, Brand producer @ Retool

Hugues is the absolute best in the business! He’s a true partner who cares deeply about quality and results, not just getting the job done. I feel totally confident setting him loose to work directly with any team member, whether he's collaborating with designers, other devs, or enabling non-technical contributors to achieve their goals on the web.

Lauren Sell, VP of Marketing @ HumanSignal

If I had one piece of advice for any startup marketing leader it would be to hire Hugues to help design and build out your web marketing stack. Bringing frontend under marketing and working with Hugues as an extension of our team has enabled us to ship value extremely fast as a small team.

Ashlynn Pericacho, Head of Marketing @ Okteto
