I’m a highly experienced engineer, software architect and engineering leader with 25 years experience in the software industry. I'm currently working in a freelance capacity.

I work mainly with start-ups/scale-ups/SMEs and the sorts of work I undertake are:

  • Interim CTO, VP Engineering, Director of Engineering or Senior Engineering Manager roles
  • Mentoring of Engineering Managers
  • Mentoring and training engineers
  • Hands-on development work
  • Technical design
  • Strategic advice and due diligence (e.g. should we rewrite? Should we buy or build?)

I am particularly experienced helping engineering teams work more closely with product/rest of the business, especially as startups grow.

Some of the languages/frameworks/systems I have worked with:

Clojure, ClojureScript, JavaScript, TypeScript Java, Python, PHP, Node.js, Angular, React, React Native, Spring, Hibernate, Flask, SQL, NoSQL (Redshift, ElasticSearch, Redis, DynamoDB), GraphQL, High availability, Microservices, AWS, Heroku, Linux
