I have lead and directed development and product teams as well as communicating and working very closely with CTOs, directors, clients and other internal teams.
Additionally, I have experience working remotely for clients, both employed and freelance, in teams and by myself.
Working at an agency after working for a product company was a fantastic change, it brought many opportunities for me to work with new technologies, learn new skills and work on a wide range of projects.
In addition to strengthening and refining my existing web development skills, I also had experience with the following;
Create.net is an online platform that allows users to build their own responsive ecommerce websites, currently housing 10,000 websites from a variety of sectors. Development included frontend and backend aspects of application functionality for users, API development, as well as internal tools and reports for the company.
As Lead Developer, I provided technical leadership of the product team and assumed overall accountability for all development work within the company. This involved making key decisions on the product in regards to UX, design and the direction of development, as well as developing the platform.
I have worked on various projects in my spare time, from static responsive websites, to video streaming services, both from the ground up, and modifying existing systems.
