Software Development

There’s a disconnect in software. A disconnect between what developers provide and users need.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Software and solutions tailored to the exacting needs of your company and staff can reduce costs, streamline your business, and put you ahead.

App Design & Development

Seeking to develop an app but lack the necessary team or expertise?

I have extensive experience in product and feature design, architecture, data modeling, user experience, information architecture, and technical design. I am an expert at programming in C#, Javascript, TypeScript etc.

Libraries & Components

Is your team hampered by a lack of missing functionality in the libraries they use?

I have worked at Microsoft on .NET Framework designing fluent APIs as well as web based APIs at Netflix and Xbox. I know exactly how to extend and enhance existing libraries and develop components that feel native.

Data Extraction & Automation

Need to get data out of existing systems or automate manual processes?

I have extracted data from a variety of sources including undocumented binary formats and complex markup. I have access to media forensic imaging equipment and have written custom parsers and scrapers.

IT Hiring Process

Finding it difficult to evaluate IT candidates?

I've interviewed candidates at Microsoft, Netflix, Auth0, and GitHub as well as interviewing to offer stages at Epic Games, Activision, SpaceX, and Elastic.

Whether you're looking for technical skill evaluation or broader evaluation I can help get your process to where it needs to be.

Cloud Native

Does your product fully utilise the cloud?

I've spent many years working on large-scale sites, apps and APIs at Xbox and Netflix. When you are looking to optimize performance, reliability and cost-saving my experience across Azure, AWS, Google Cloud and CloudFlare with a variety of managed services can help.

Security Expertise

Do you need app-level pen-testing, security reviews or processes?

I spent 18 months at Microsoft in Redmond as the security lead across and later worked at authentication provider Auth0. In 2000 I developed the first internet banking for Temenos Globus as co-founder at Contract 5 (now C5 Alliance) for Lloyds TSB Private Banking in Jersey.
