    Senior Software Engineer

    2020 - Present

    In my current role, I have evolved from a mid-level software engineer to a senior developer. I went from helping to rebuild and improve the company's website, to leading a team of front and back-end developers. I leveraged Azure, Terraform, ASP.NET, and more, and helped to orchestrate the integration of IdentityServer4, driving measurable improvements in load times and customer conversion.

    As a senior developer, I guided a team of five through Scrum methodology while continuously researching and implementing cutting-edge technologies to optimise workflows and elevate performance. I worked hard to foster a collaborative environment in which everyone could demonstrate their strengths. Through this, my team successfully overhauled multi-national customer facing applications in React and Typescript, and moved to .Net Core RESTful APIs, Service Bus architecture and NoSQL data warehousing.

    This role expanded not only my technical expertise but also essential leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills, driving the company's overall success and customer satisfaction.

    Computer Science BSc - 2:1

    2013 - 2016

    For my undergraduate dissertation, ’Accelerometer Games for the iOS Platform’, I created a physics–based game for iPhone and iPad. This was a great opportunity to learn Swift and SpriteKit, along with the App Store submission process.

    The project was well–received, with the University choosing to use my game as a learning tool and as an example of an exceptional final project during open days.
