Full-stack Ruby on Rails Software Developer based in London

What I do

Strategy

I will work with you to fully understand your needs and the problems or challenges we're trying to solve. We'll discuss solutions through conversation and facilitation.

Engineer

Before writing any code, I'll help you understand the process and thoughts behind how a system or architecture will be engineered. I apply critical thinking and foresight to projects before building.

Code

I work in a continuous delivery fashion while in the development process. You get to see progress in an iterative and timely fashion, so there's ample time for feedback and input.
