I joined a small software house in Exeter straight after university.
After completing my postgraduate studies I lived in Whistler for 6 months and devoted most of my time to snowboarding! I then travelled down the west coast of North America.
I supported myself doing freelance work for Assertia.
I spent 3 years building patient identification systems for a healthcare service provider. The software was used in over 10,000 surgeries across the UK to pro-actively manage paients suffering from chronic diseases. I was also involved in architecting guided-consultation software for assisting doctors in correctly diagnosing COPD patients.
I decided it was time for a change and so I joined BraveNewTalent, an exciting startup trying to evolve professional education. I initially was focussed on building an recommendation system before becoming more focussed on working on the front-end of the application. In my final year there I progressed to becoming Team Lead and helped move the development team over to the US.
Feeling like I needed a new challenge on top of a new job I decided to climb the highest mountain in Africa as part of a team of 30. We took 6 days to reach the summit.
Built an Single Page Application using UK government open data to show quality of life in London Boroughs.
I joined on a 3 month contract pairing up with some former colleagues at BraveNewTalent. I was a member of a 4 man team. We were responsible for building 2 back-end micro-services that will power a new trainline ticketing system.
What started out as a side-project has turned into my primary focus. I work with 2 former colleagues and good friends, Hung and Tanc. Our mission is to bring recruitment and workforce optimisation into a new era. We are currently focussed on building a matching service for software engineers and tech companies. We are bootstrapped and now profitable from nothing but our own grind and hard-work.
