With a background in Computer Science and more than seven years of commercial experience, I've honed a variety of web development skills. I'm happy building systems from scratch, extending existing systems, refactoring projects that have become unmaintainable, or scaling systems that have been pushed beyond their capacity. I'm happy working alone or as part of a team, and can work from your office or remotely.
I can also help you with the more technical side of your business. Whether that's crafting a deliverable roadmap, improving developer infrastructure, introducing an agile workflow, helping you screen & hire technical staff, capacity planning, or improving internal communication, I've got the know-how to work with you and let you focus on your main business.
Sure. At Last.fm I worked as a web developer, building and improving features that were used by more than 40 million users. I helped screen candidates for hiring, sent Christmas schwag to top users, kept an eye on the forums for people reporting problems, and did my best to keep the product team focused on the end user.
More recently I've worked with DrEd to help them refocus their roadmap, expand their permanent technical team, refactor their application stack, and let them ship better software faster. I also worked with Silicon Milkroundabout to help them figure out their company's future roadmap, what their users – both candidates & startups – want , and how they could expand beyond their current offerings.
You can see more examples in my portfolio.
I enjoy working with small companies and startups the most, and love products used by non-technical users. I'm most attracted to smart people and thin bureaucracy.
The best way to find out if we're a good fit is to get in touch and tell me more about your projects.
