James McQuarrie is a UK based Senior Product Manager who helps teams design, build and deliver digital products and services that delight their users.


I co-founded in 2015 to help freelance Digital Contractors and Consultants share their availability for new work with recruiters quickly and easily.

Over the course of 6 years of running the service we built up a membership of 1,000’s of the tech industry’s best freelancers and contractors who used the NEXTFREE to share their availability for new project based work, before they were on the market.

In 2021 we teamed up with the founders of a similar service based in The Netherlands called Fring. NEXTFREE was shut down and our members were invited to use Fring as an alternative service.

I’m now an advisor to Fring’s founders, helping them grow their business globally.
