Not everyone Software Engineers work with are geeks. Clear communication and patience is essential if we're to explain complex technologies to those who aren't tech-minded.
Software development is a team process. Share experience, knowledge, responsibilities with the ups and the downs; a team will bond, look out for each other and be a success!
As a Senior Software Engineer I build and maintain our web platforms for our prepaid card offering. Clients include some of the big-five UK banks and other global blue chip companies. Their cardholders load their prepaid card with funds and spend it on the high street to receive a monthly rebate on their purchases. We're the platform behind many free fuel promotions as well as broadband and mobile rewards and incentives for leading telecoms providers.
I was responsible for software design and development of our projects which included an online bidding platform. This was built for the arts and antiques industry. We also developed an engineering management system for a large company in the print industry.
Working with the company Director/Senior Software Engineer, we built a CMS using MVC 4.0. This is a stand-alone platform, deployed on a per website basis and contains an administration section to allow customers to manage the content themselves. This was a long-time-coming, well planned and rewarding project by the company Director and meant all their websites were published royalty and licence free and was 100% customisable by them.
Working in a close knit team, we developed and maintained the companies flagship NATS (National Air Traffic Services) endorsed aircraft GPS navigation product for Windows Mobile devices and the accompanying desktop Flight Planning software for Windows. Used by pilots to help them adhere to NOTAMs, aviation regulations and remain clear of restricted air space.
As a Lead Developer, I was responsible for the development and enhancements to the company’s core road haulage traffic planning solution. The software is used by many big players in the road haulage industry. It manages load and route planning and enables EDI and ETL interfaces for sharing and distributing planned loads, UK wide.

I'm an enthusiastic, determined and hard-working person who can work well under pressure and meet deadlines, whether working as a team or independently. I am a capable and confident communicator at all levels.
Within a couple of hours I was copying code from a magazine and rendering out concentric circles on screen and sending them to the noisy, thermal printer to put up on my bedroom wall.
That day, I contracted the coding bug. Thirty-three years later, I'm still developing software, except the circles these days are Agile Circles.
As a Full-stack developer I've used a number of tools. Whilst my strengths lie in MVC, I always want to know more!
Crypto is a secret pleasure of mine. PGP, PKI, SHA, Rijndael, Twofish, TripeDES, Blowfish... the list goes on!
I love developing and connecting API's for aggregating data and providing re-usable and scalable services.
