Experience

Founder at Jupli

London, UK

Apr '15 - Current

I am currently working developing apps under my new company name, Jupli.

App Developer at Housekeep

London, UK

Jan '17 - Apr '17

  • Ionic 2
  • Angular 2
  • Typescript

I helped to develop a new app for Housekeep, which is now used by all their housekeepers to keep track of their schedules. The focus was performance comparable to native, and a seamless on/offline experience. The app was built using Ionic 2, and was very well received by the users.

App Developer at Blink

London, UK

Sep '15 - July '16

  • Ionic
  • Angular
  • Cordova
  • Javascript
  • HTML
  • CSS

I developed Blink's (formerly Kimono) Android app using Ionic. This allowed me to use the existing Angular services being used by the browser-based app to get it up and running quickly. I tweaked the app extensively for performance and actually ended up removing Ionic and Angular to this end - a pretty interesting task!

Sep '14 - Apr '15

  • Cordova
  • Backbone
  • Javascript
  • HTML
  • CSS

Dec '12 - Oct '13

  • Javascript
  • HTML

I worked as a software consultant under the company name, Syncostyle, developing apps and websites for clients. This was mostly web-focused, such as Javascript and HTML, but I also developed programs in C++ in this time.

Software Engineering Intern at Arxan Technologies

San Francisco, USA

May '12 - Nov '12

  • Jenkins
