Experience

Software Engineer at Momentum Financial Technology (March 2015 - August 2017)

I joined as the only engineer on a project to redesign a consumer finance website. I worked closely with the designers in an agile cross-functional team.

I created a life-insurance quote comparison tool using a third party API.

I created an "investment options tool" for helping first-time investors decide what to do.

I switched to a larger team of developers helping to build a single-page Redux app. It was made to help financial advisers share information with their clients (Moneyhub Connect).

The company went through a restructure and I temporarily moved back to the original team.

I moved back to the other side of the business to work on the consumer app Moneyhub. It was another large single-page React/Flux app.

The app was previously bundled with Cordova but an effort had already been made to migrate to a lightweight React Native wrapper. The iOS build worked but the Android one did not. The project was based on a very old React Native bootstrap project and needed significant work.

I went with five other people from the company to take part in the 2-day Pensions Dashboard Techsprint event in London (run by the HM Treasury).

I also took an interest in our Git repositories while working at the company.

Meetups and conferences

I have attended, helped out and given talks at a lot of local Bristol tech meetups over the last few years:
