I will be a web developer
I am a web developer
Firstly I should start by saying that I created this portfolio two years ago – before I got my front-end developer role at Lovespace. What I could do two years ago, and what I can create now seem worlds apart – so apologies if this is out of date – updating my portfolio is one of my projects for Q1 2019.
I am a self-taught web developer, having learnt by studying and coding 10-15 hours a week outside of a non-coding full-time job. In April 2017, I became a front-end developer for Lovespace.
At first, I was mainly doing small styling updates, and changes to the jQuery code that powered the order page, and some other functionality across the website.
Since then I have been working on a project to convert the order page from jQuery to AngularJS, along with customer account pages, also converted the WordPress site to Multisite to allow us to expand internationally whilst minimising duplication.
Most recently I led the front-end side of a project to create a dashboard for our business customers, from scoping endpoint requirements, building on top of existing infrastructure, and completing delivery on time (just!).
In my spare time, I have built a couple of small websites for clients – Neary Services and Woodland Tennis – though spare time is pretty limited.
I am not actively looking for a new role, but I’d certainly consider anything interesting within London – something that builds on my current level. I do really enjoy my current role, I have a fantastic team around me – yet I do occasionally need a little support from more senior members of the team…sometimes I forgot that I have only been a professional developer for less than two years.
In an ideal world, I’d like to learn React or Vue – something that there isn’t scope to do in my current role.
I am quite personable too – I do like to get my head down and work without minimal interruption (not always that possible!), but I’m a good soul to have around. Plus I have an unusual hairstyle and a good sense of humour, without trying to turn this into my Tinder profile.
Feel free to contact me if you’d like to know more about me, or if you have a role that you think I could be perfect for.
Also happy to take on projects for individuals, self-employed folk or small businesses. If you like what you see give me a call on 07813 981 920 or e-mail me.
