In addition to what @sylumer stated above, you’ll undoubtedly find that there’s a wealth of knowledge and experience available from the users of this forum, without charge, and motivated to help. If you’re looking to hire, there are sites that are probably better for sourcing applicants, such as GitHub or StackOverflow. But if you have any automation queries or tasks that could be:
- asking which automation tool is most suited to a particular purpose;
- a specialist question that only those intimate with Hazel could possibly answer;
- an invitation to brainstorm about the different ways to approach a specific problem where everyone can contribute from their own sphere of knowledge and learn even more by reading other’s;
- a How Do I… question for achieving a specific objective;
then this is a pretty good place for any of these, and whilst I don’t endorse depriving a freelancer a well-deserved fee for a superior, fully-tested, and complete solution, I have seen some full step-by-step, from-beginning-to-end submissions on here that probably could earn a commission but were just shared for the love of automating the crap out of everything and because someone asked for it.
Whichever avenues you explore to achieve your goals, I hope your ideas get the attention they need. I recommend a good launcher (Alfred is well-known, but there are some excellent open source ones that are more capable in certain areas), and Karabiner (an open-source kernel extension that allows keys to be remapped).
