Software Developer

June 2014 - July 2016 (2 years, 2 months)

8over8 develop a contractual risk management software product called ProCon. I formed part of an agile driven development team and implement ‘User stories’ which encompass customer requirements which have been drawn up by the product owners. Using TFS to track changes and communicate work accomplishments I worked in sprints of up to 10 days in which the specified functionality must be implemented and delivered. The core technologies used at 8over8 are ASP.NET C#, SQL Server 2012, Angular JS, HTML 5 & CSS3, SOAP & REST Services and legacy vb6 com. I gained exposure to all of these either during sprint or during test/fix cycle when the system was groomed for bugs pre-release.

Freelance Web Developer and Designer

June 2015 - Present

I develop high quality responsive websites for clients outside of my day job. I have a passion for front end design and development. I have a keen eye for slick design and can implement this in my work to suit my clients needs. All websites are crafted without the use of any existing HTML frameworks or grid systems which means that each website is unique and capable of any custom design that my client requires. I enjoy building websites that provide real value to the client.

Software Development Intern

March 2013 - October 2013 (8 months)

I undertook an internship working for an exciting start-up called Uppiddee Inc. Uppiddee are producing HR Software that utilises big data to help improve company costs and employee wellbeing. As one of the first developers in the team early on, I was responsible for developing the entire backbone of the application by implementing the middle tier c# code, database requirements, SQL stored procedures and also the UI for the application which involved extensive use of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, web services and Telerik controls. Upon being given the design specifications I had to come up with the most effective way possible to develop each web page by considering the trade-off between client side and server side methods in order to maximise application performance. This experience also involved adapting to an early changing requirement that meant the application code had to be converted from vb to c#.
