About me

Sound full stack software engineer with real world application and business experience. From taking fledging startups on rocket ship journeys, to stabilising the team at times of "restructure". I am a merger of hard work, loyalty and ethics, blended with the sound skills for SaaS startups and tech stacks, who passionately cares for the success of the business and wellbeing of his team.

Soft Skills:

A Connector.

Too often we see a disconnect between business needs / requirements / understanding and the abilities of product / service / resource.

A Team Leader.

Practical enough to roll up my sleeves and get "things" done and pragmatic enough to ensure team members rise up and take ownership.

A Coach.

Everyone is different and it takes considered and respected time to listen to your team. But when you do, you find remarkable gems that bring out the best in your team members.

Hiring.

Your business is only as good as the people you trust with it. A bad hire will break a good team. Learn to say no.

Agile/Scrum/Kanban.

Manage your feature releases with clearly defined goals. Deploy, measure and repeat. Non reactive, juggle free.

Hard Skills:

SaaS Systems.

Design & implementation, managing the balance between feature delivery and performant horizontal scale.

Microservices.

Well defined domains implemented with Golang, my service language of choice.

MVC Platforms.

LE/AMP stacks, delivering your business needs from ui to db.

Svelte JS.

Reactive JS compiled into native JS for raw speed, size and efficiency.

Tailwind CSS.

A utility-first CSS framework to rapidly build modern websites.
