As a full stack developer, I am just as comfortable designing pixel perfect interfaces as I am optimising database queries. I have always been into software development. I started selling software online when I was 12 years old and owned my first .com at 15.
Since then I have held a number of postions over the years as well as starting my own startup. I am currently Technical Lead at Checkout.com.
Now my second stint at Checkout.com
where I am currently Technical Lead helping build the bank of the future. Such a great company with amazing people.
My first startup GrowRecruit
aiming to make recruitment easier for recruiters and companies.
I worked at Checkout.com
first as a Senior Software Developer and then as a Technical Lead. Leading a fast-paced development team to completely rebuild the backend financial processes into a real-time, scalable double entry account ledger based on a microservices architecture.
Working with a range of clients including Nationwide, ORX and Qualification Wales building business critical systems.
If University wasn't hard enough I chose to study Physics instead of Computer Science at University as I wanted a challange. Although I did lean more towards computational physics during my time there. I graduated in 2010 with a Masters Degree. I should really put MPhys at the end of my name but that seems a bit much.
When I am not revolutionising banking with my team at Checkout.com, I like to work on my own personal projects.
A lot of recruitment software is overly complicated and expensive. With GrowRecruit I set out to do something a bit different.Read More
