Experience

D3R Ltd, Chichester (May 2018 - present)

Web Developer

Working predominantly on the team that develops for the main client of the company running in an AGILE two week sprint setup. Primarily my role consists of development work, both front and back end, working to improve existing aspects of the site or creating whole new features in larger projects.

Another key aspect of my role is client communication, not only from daily stand ups and weekly sprint planning but also, due to the company’s focus on open lines of candid communication with clients, an “as and when” mentality to discussions around specific tickets, pieces of work, or issues leading to faster turn-around and results more in-line with what the client is after.

Other duties include time management via Harvest, ticket management via Jira, staging and live deployment, A/B testing, and giving the occasional presentation about certain topics of interest that may benefit the whole company to do with process,, new core features developed for the framework, etc.
