02 Experiencework

September 2015 - Present

Towergate

Front End Developer

Currently using ITCSS architecture to modularise the styles for the main website, www.towergateinsurance.co.uk, which has a page for each of its 200 products (approx.). I continue to build websites, using ITCSS and writing modular JavaScript.

April 2015 - August 2015

Pixel Twist (CWM Digital)

Front End Developer

Enhanced the user experience for www.littleandwild.co.uk by building a WordPress custom toy box decorator plugin. The plugin allows the customer to drag and drop and resize images onto a box and remove them. It allows them to preview their design and then to purchase it through WooCommerce.

October 2014 - March 2015

CWM

Web Developer

Working in the city in the Heron Tower, was nice. Built a responsive company formation application. Built the front end using HTML, CSS and modular jQuery; and for the backend I used CodeIgniter. At this point in my career I made a conscious decision to concentrate on Front-end development.

September 2009 - July 2014

Private

Web Developer

No serious work at this time. Took the time to study. But I still had some bits and pieces of web work.

January 2008 - October 2009

E3 Media

Web Developer

Got to work for an Agency again. Felt good, had a good mentor when it came to front-end build. I got a better understanding of HTML, CSS and JavaScript and my first encounter with jQuery.

May 2005 - July 2006

Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman

Web Developer

Working at the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman was nice, it allowed me to rebuild a website improving my skills in HTML, CSS and some JavaScript.
