Work Experience

Lead Developer

Coordinate SaaS Ltd

Coordinate SaaS Ltd is a leading sports event management system used by many blue-chip clients and local councils. While working as lead developer I have taken a key role in the development and product management of their core application.

Further to this, I manage the DevOps and deployments of new features into the production applications using Git version control.

Jan 2021 – Present Day

Lead Developer

Stevenage Play Learning & Activity Team Ltd

Stevenage Play Learning & Activity Team Ltd is a children’s day nursery which has developed its own in-house CRM nursery application which helps manage the childcare setting in order to reduce paperwork and improve efficiency. This includes handling the nursery bookings, daily registers, funding, observations, and parent to business communications along with invoicing and payroll management.

They were looking for a developer to take on the project and propel it into a B2B SaaS application to compete with similar systems like eyMan and eyLog. When I took over this project, it was on the brink of failure, as the previous two developers left it in a state where it was completely unusable. So first I had to recover the project and assess which parts of the last developers work could be kept in order to get the project back on track as quickly as possible, and then develop an action plan to re-build the application from the ground up as a multi-tenanted system.

Infrastructure: AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and AWS Relational Database Service (RDS)
