Expert Trades

Junior Full-Stack Developerat Expert Trades

August 2019 to Present

This was my first step into working in an environment where my role was a full-stack developer. This role has tested my communication skills as my line-manager, the CTO, was not a native English speaker. This presented some challenges when describing technical information but we have managed to overcome this issue. My tasks included looking after their website packages, their Verified project and backend API. Due to still being in education, I worked mostly remotely and went into the office for 1 day a week and for meetings.

Attempted the Discord Hack Week as part of the team Finione.

March 2019 to August 2019

I originally took this job as my first, to get into the "world of work". I don't have plans to stay here as it's not a career I wish to endeavour into but it has helped grow my skills regarding communication, working as part of a large team and customer relations. Which are important when building products for a user group or company while working as a team to get the project finished to a high standard.
