Trusted Pine Programmers for Hire

These are Pine programmers we know and endorse, who have a good reputation of providing quality, paid Pine custom-coding services. While you can inquire to any number of them, it is considered very poor etiquette to send bulk inquiries to all. These programmers are all very good, and they are also very busy. Finding one who is free and willing to work with you will sometimes be a challenge.

Business transactions are to be carried between you and them. Neither PineCoders nor TradingView will be involved in your relationship with the programmers, and we do not benefit from your business with them.

If you have a project to code:

Tip: As we mentioned, these are busy people. Trying to negotiate unreasonable prices with them will not be to your advantage, as programmers will simply choose other customers to work with.
