Lead Developer / Consultant @ Dual / Howden Group
I have worked with Dual International since 2018. I was initially involved in rolling out critical improvements for a high-volume price comparison site selling legal indemnity products. This quickly evolved into new feature development, platform stabilization and upgrades. More recently I have designed the cloud and software architecture for a new integration layer built in Azure using micro services.

I also set up automated dev-ops operations with automated CI/CD pipelines for the Agency's Umbraco projects using TeamCity.

Tech Lead @ Grove Capital Management
I was the Development / Tech lead on a green-field build of an asset management platform. Most of the work I undertook was architecture design and building components of a data-exchange system to allow data synchronization with partner companies. The system was a proprietary build replacing a lot of legacy SSIS packages with web API’s. I worked closely with the technical BA and QA team to ensure TDD and BDD were at the core of the codebase.

I lead the development team in Virgin Media's digital department, building various public facing micro sites and marketing / sales websites for quarterly email campaigns and various other business and e-commerce activities. I also built a fully integrated CI/CD pipeline for multiple sites using TeamCity and Amazon’s Elastic Beanstalk deployment tool.
Senior Developer @ The British Museum
A short term (3 month) project to integrate three of the museums systems. This involved working with a fundraising CRM system (Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge), an e-commerce web platform (Venda) and an in-house intranet portal. Most of the work was centered on importing / synchronizing of data between the CRM and e-commerce platform, using the COM/.NET API provided by the CRM software vendor and web services provided by the e-commerce platform. Technology wise it was mostly WCF/.NET Web Services.
Senior Developer @ Barclays Capital
I helpbed build Barclays' “Connect Portal” web application, which is an internet based remote access portal.

I also set up CI pipelines for the project using TeamCIty.
