I'm a British guy ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง who's been living in Helsinki ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ for the past few years. I have a background in biology and mathematics, and have since migrated to the software industry.

I know a little bit about a lot of different things, and I'm always interested in learning something new.

I spent a few years as a software consultant at Verifa. My work there was split into two parts,

  • Consulting services in,
    • CI/CD
    • Automated testing
    • Data science
    • Development
  • Leading and developing on internal projects

After time in consulting I really wanted to move into a more product-focussed role and ended up moving to a software developer position at Supermetrics. There I work on a number of customer-facing products and spend most of my time working with TypeScript, PHP and the Google Apps Script environment.

After a little more than a year of being a developer, I became a senior individual contributor, manager, and technical lead for my team. This team is responsible for some of the leading products from Supermetrics; our range of Data Studio connectors. As well as writing code I spend my time,

  • Helping my team to identify and work toward their personal goals
  • Interviewing for front-end, and full stack positions, and determining the hiring needs for my team
  • Determining the technical strategy for my team
  • Building the team's roadmap, along with our product manager
  • Architecting solutions to current and upcoming technical problems

It's hard to self-describe, but here are some words that could be used to explain me:

  • Enthusiast ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  • Developer ๐Ÿ’ป
  • Scientist ๐Ÿงช
  • Video and board game lover ๐ŸŽฎ
  • Volunteer โค
  • Music fan ๐Ÿค˜
  • Fencer โš”

My favourite technologies are,

  • TypeScript
  • Rust
  • Python
