With 20+ years of real-world industry experience, I love bringing a hands-on get things done approach to web applications and teams. My key principles are: maintainability; fixing problems so they stay fixed; sharing knowledge; good communication; and being curious about technology.
Modelled and created a new booking engine product from start to finish.
- Created a successful, multi-tenant product from ground up
- Handled £3 million+ in yearly revenue with around 100 tenants
- Hands-on experience with the then-new Node & Angular2+ stack
- Built a team, developed onboarding process, training and patterns of mentorship
- Implemented coding standards, prepared & delivered workshops
- Product was acquired by a larger supplier in the same ecosystem
Worked closely with a large multinational hospitality technology provider, being the first in Europe to bring a modern,
accessible frontend to their extremely feature-filled API backend.
- Wrangled a large multi-layered enterprise API into a fast, modern, consumer-friendly web application
- Pinpointed and resolved performance issues, then shared patterns with the wider team
- Liased with developers and managers at the other end to reach consensus and understand a frequently changing interface
United cross-company teams between the UK, Germany and the Netherlands to create a customised long-stay booking engine web application,
while coding the web application to tie the systems together.
- Unified 5+ companies (API providers, SalesForce integrators, payment provider, various consultants, and so on) together with a technical interface
- Planned solutions to problems that cropped up along the way
- Developed fault-tolerance features to handle failures in 3rd party systems
