About Me

Rob Shelvey

I have over 15 years experience developing web sites. I have worked for one of the largest multinational corporations in the world, but now concentrate on running my own small UK based company and doing freelance work. I specialise in consulting and managing projects related to PCI Compliance, GDPR, WCAG Compliance and web security.

I have a wide range of IT skills having worked for over 25 years in support, engineering, and as an IT architect and a web developer. This experience enables me to work quickly and develop robust web sites that simply work well, and look great. I specialise in developing ASP.NET database driven websites. I am extremely reliable and honest, and will always keep working on the site until you are completely happy.

Website security is extremely important. I have passed both SCIPP International Secure Web Application Development Awareness & End-User Security Awareness courses, as can be seen from the certificates below (click to enlarge).

Avoid WordPress

No To Wordpress WordPress and other free "off the shelf" CMS solutions are often not the best choice for business web sites. Whilst these platforms may be great as a personal blog site they have a number of down sides for use as a business web platform...

  • Hackers target WordPress, as any vulnerabilities found can be exploited on millions of other sites.
  • Updates need to be installed regularly, this is an administrative overhead requiring re-testing and possible remedial work.
  • It has limited support as the framework is built by the 'community'. If a component breaks, you may not get help fixing it, forcing you to find an alternative.
  • Website speed and SEO are not optimal due to the bloated code, loading many functions that you never utilise.


Custom CMS

My websites include an optional custom content management system (CMS). This has secure administrative pages allowing you to manage and update the content of your website, using bespoke tools tailored to your requirements.

These custom management pages are designed to be really easy to use, saving you the time and hassle of managing a full content management system. This system is very secure & robust so you need not worry about it breaking. For more details on this please contact me.

Testimonials

A few recent testimonials from my Upwork clients...

Looking for an experienced compliance expert to advise on GDPR compliance for my SaaS. - FEB 2018

Rob is very thorough in his approach to work and gives advice as best as he can. An absolute pleasure working with him.

PCI Compliance Failures - JAN 2018

Rob went above and beyond for me on this project. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and professional. He took time to talk with and educate me on areas that I have zero experience in. He completed the job quickly and communicated very well along the way. I will be using Rob again for any job that I can.

PCI Compliance - NOV 2017

Rob was a pleasure to work with, he was very knowledgeable about PCI compliance, he helped with all our documentation, running our scans and identifying and fixing any issues. He was responsive to all communications, and gave clear instructions on how best to approach our task. He spent time understanding our business and what our challenges were. I would definitely recommend him for further work.

WCAG 2.0 Testing & Report - OCT 2017

Rob was amazing to work with. His analysis and reporting for our project was extremely professional and we will most definitely work with him again. Highly recommended!

Rob did a great job! Very knowledgable on PCI Compliance, fast turnaround, and very easy to work with. Looking forward to working with him in the future!

PCI compliance for passing PCI audit - May 2017

Rob really went above and beyond to help me navigate a convoluted PCI compliance process, and painstakingly stuck with it until the job was finished. There were some unforeseen roadblocks during the process but Rob always had a creative solution. Despite the challenges, he remained very positive and patient and we even shared a few laughs! I would not hesitate for a moment to hire Rob again on any PCI compliance or web development project. Most highly recommended!

I need help on PCI Compliance - JAN 2017

Rob is very professional, patient and willing to teach. I will for sure get more work for him in future.

PCI Compliance on my Website - AUG 2016

What an amazing find Rob was ... and just at the right time. Our website received a failing PCI scan with over 40 different failure errors (all of them way too technical for me or my team to understand). I hired Rob and within a matter of a few days, everything was fixed and our PCI scan passed. He handled everything including communication with PCI compliance company, communication with our hosting provider and communication back and forth with me. I cannot give Rob any higher recommendation.

Pricing

Unlike most web developers I can provide my skills as an ongoing service rather than just a one off job.

In my experience clients often require guidance and support throughout the lifetime of the website. Providing web development as a service charged monthly creates a stronger relationship and understanding. This allows me to provide step by step help and advice as your business grows on the web. Whether it be marketing, additional functionality, re-branding, or other advice or changes, these can be taken care of at zero cost to you as part of the monthly package.

An obvious benefit of the service driven model is your upfront costs are minimal when compared to the traditional model of one single large payment.

Most websites will fall into one of the packages shown below. I can provide traditional 'one-off' development also if preferred. For an exact quote or to discuss more complex development please contact me.
