happy sunday



I’m MarianoMariano Miguel, a web developer with a design background helping great designers turn ideas into successful marketing and headless e-commerce websites.

I specialize in modern technology stacks, using the most advanced technologies in the web industry to build fast, SEO-optimized, secure, and scalable websites.


Tech stack

I build websites using the Jamstack approach. At its core, Jamstack is an architectural approach to building websites that decouples the visual front-end of your website from the data and business logic layers, allowing it to seamlessly connect to multiple third-party providers while offering a perfectly unified experience to your users.

Because of its decoupled architecture, Jamstack allows developers to build highly secure, performant, and SEO-optimized websites that can scale with far less friction than a traditional website would.

I build modern front-ends with React and Next.js, a flexible yet incredibily powerful stack which has been tried and tested by great companies and startups such as Facebook, Dropbox, Khan Academy, CodeAcademy, Netflix, Airbnb, PayPal, Walmart, Tesla Motors, IMDb, and more.

I currently use Sanity CMS as the back-end for most websites. Sanity allows for highly customized content management, and it has features like real-time collaboration, session level document rollback, and a plethora of other features that would take a legacy CMS like WordPress dozens of plugins to replicate.

If your site also needs eCommerce functionality, we’ll use Shopify to manage pricing, inventory, fulfillment, and anything else that’s eCommerce-related.

Finally, if the back-end needs for your website are more complex (authentication, databases, custom API endpoints, etc.), I will use PayloadCMS (instead of Sanity) as an application framework with CMS-grade admin UI to build everything in the most efficient and flexible way.


Pricing & capabilities

Marketing websites

I partner with brands, agencies, and design teams to build engaging marketing websites. We’ll work together to create a custom collection of components that anyone in your team will be able to use to put together as many pages as you need without help.

Marketing websites will usually cost around $12,000 and take a minimum of 6 weeks after designs are completely approved and delivered. This includes QA as well as getting everything ready to launch.

Headless eCommerce websites

Whether you’re looking to launch a new eCommerce website, or you want to upgrade existing eCommerce setup to a modern, lightning-fast, SEO-optimized store that will improve your current conversion rates, I’ll work as your dedicated tech partner to guide you from design to launch in the smoothest way possible.

Headless eCommerce websites will usually cost around $24,000 and take a minimum of 8 weeks after designs are completely approved and delivered.



Since 2012, I've collaborated on projects for a wide range of worldwide clients, from small design agencies to multi-million dollar startups. Projects I've worked on have been featured in places like TechCrunch, NBC News, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, and Time Inc, to name a few.

From the first moment my team inquired about development through the final completion Mariano was on fire! He is professional, punctual, responsive and incredibly easy to work with. He gave me time to make my comments and request changes, but then got right to work and produced a very high quality, true to vision build for me and my team, I can't recommend him enough!
