Work history

Currently

Web Developer

Screenmedia Design Ltd

May 2011
  • Screenmedia is an award winning digital Agency in Glasgow. At Screenmedia I was involved in the specification, development and maintenance of a number of Umbraco CMS driven websites. In my time there I have gained an in-depth knowledge of Umbraco and improved my C# and MVC skills whilst gaining a new extensive knowledge in xslt and Razor. Despite having had only been with the company since June 2011, I was often assigned the role of development manager on a number of my projects due to my impeccable organisation skills, diligence and commitment. I was also assigned the duty of mentoring the younger and newer developers of the company. As part of my role at Screenmedia I conducted training sessions with clients, mentoring them on how to use the Umbraco CMS. The majority of these sessions were conducted solely by myself. My experience of presenting such training has enabled my confidence in public speaking to grow and I have developed excellent networking skills with clients.

2011

Graduate Development Engineer

Gael Ltd

Sep 2011 - May 2011
  • Gael Ltd was a Technology House that produced Compliance Management Software. I spent my time there working on their legacy software ‘QPulse’, a windows desktop application written in C#. This was an enterprise sized project and taught me good practices when working with larger scaled projects. The project was run by an Agile methodology and I contributed to stand ups, debriefs and sprint planning. This position was beneficial in the development of my skills and experience.

2010

Summer Placement Graduate Software Engineer

Amor Group

May 2010 - Aug 2010
  • In my final year at university I obtained a summer placement at Amor Group, one of Scotland’s largest independent business technology companies. It was here that I was first exposed to the .NET framework and spent many weeks building an internal web portal using ASP.NET Web Forms. This placement was a fantastic stepping stone from University life to employment and provided me with confidence and excitement in seeking employment.
