Developer, February 2015 - August 2017.

At graze I quickly grew my skill-set and responsibilities, working closely with data analysts, UX designers, and various non-tech teams across the business to build proven customer experiences. During this time I have proposed and executed features to address fundamental business challenges, and proactively championed technical solutions to enable new commercial opportunities.

Defined The Future Of Graze’s Front-End Framework & Pattern Library

We built Pistachio, graze’s front-end framework and pattern library, to enable a consistent identity across multiple platforms and to address new challenges posed by collaborating with external agencies. Pistachio did this by introducing version control, documentation, test coverage, and a thorough review process. We remained agile by allowing each platform to layer new UI on top of Pistachio with less rigidity. I helped lead the regular review of such modifications with our UX and communication teams to remove, replace, or standardise UI inline with brand guidelines.

Collaborated Closely With The Data Team

Being a data driven company I took advantage of opportunities at graze to work even closer with the data team on product experiments and metric monitoring.

Developed The Core Graze Platform

I worked regularly with graze’s large monolith codebase, adding new functionality and refactoring business critical processes such as billing. In addition I moved the platform forward by designing new REST API endpoints, helping the platform team move to a microservice architecture. I also championed exciting new services such as Contentful, a headless CMS for semantic content, to proactively unlock new commercial opportunities.

Imp

Co-founder, August 2014 - Febuary 2015.

Towards the end of university I co-founded a web development business with a colleague. Pitching for and working with local clients such as Frank England we built their online presence. This often involved a PHP/MySQL backed website, which we hosted on a VPS, along with SEO and design services.
