Hi, I’m Karim Ainsworth, a freelance web developer with 20 years of experience covering a broad range of technologies, including ASP.NET / MVC, JQuery, AngularJS, Mobile Development, WordPress and SQL Server.

I started developing for the web in 1995 while earning a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Florida. I’ve kept at it, working for a number of start-ups and established companies over the past 20 years, with the past 10 years spent freelancing. Currently based in Belfast, I continue to work with clients all over the world.

Think we should work together?Get In Touch

  • Andrew McCartney - CEO in Residence at Microsoft Ventures

    Karim was fantastic to work with not only did he know his stuff when it came to front-end and back-end to web development but was happy to take on impossible technical challenges. One of Karim’s huge strengths outside of his technical skills that he becomes a key member of the team and manages to bring difficult challenges into day to day development. I really hope to get to work with Karim in the future as the time we had at JamPot Technologies was one of the most memorable times in my working career.

  • Alan Frazer - Director at RMA Systems

    Karim worked for RMA Systems for two years as part of a project team of 12 staff developing a large web based grant management system. Technologies used were Microsoft Visual Studio, Javascript, HTML, SQL Server and Microsoft Office. He was intelligent and hardworking and produced excellent work. His written and verbal communications skills are excellent and he related well to other staff. He contributed a greatly to our project and we were sorry lose him. We parted on very good terms I would have no hesitation in rehiring him.

  • Ryan Matway - MD of Air Advertainment

    Karim is professional, creative, thinks out of the box and has a “whatever it takes” attitude. Our projects are done on time, the work exceeds expectations and our budget parameters are respected.

  • Peter R. Schatschneider - Red Rocket Marketing

    Karims work is fast, comprehensive and accurate, while his communication is patient and clear with none of the mysterious technological / design shroud some web developers hide behind. It has been refreshing to work with someone who actually helps reduce the stress of getting a superior website together and comforting to know that he is always available for complex technical issues or simple questions. The relationship is more a strategic partnership than simply client-service. Any organization would be well served by Karim.

  • Michael Steele - Regional Manager at Mount Charles

    Working with Karim has been a very positive experience. We needed a new website for the re-launch of our Bar & Grill under a new name in a short space of time with new logos and design. The end result has exceeded our expectations on every level. Our new website looks great and is very easy to navigate and much care was taken to follow the brief given. We have already received numerous comments on how great the new site is. Thanks again to Clever Web Dev for their professionalism.
