Outreach SoftwareDecember 2012 - October 2014

Upon joining Outreach Software, I was
tasked with building a cloud based CRM system for a client using the
latest web technologies. With a tight deadline, this product was
successfully launched 3 months later, which led me on to taking over
development on existing products and systems.

During the role I
primarily developed using CodeIgniter, PHP5, and MySQL. I was also able
to develop certain applications and tools for the company using NodeJS,
Angular JS and Laravel, and was often tasked with setting up servers,
creating backup solutions and managing large databases. I frequently
gave advice and managed others, helping them achieve higher standards of
work, and understand things better.

During my time at Inverted Chaos, I
oversaw all Development (Front and Backend) and was able to work and
develop many sites for big companies such as DirecTV, Sony, Naughty Dog,
Sunny Delight, and Liberati.

My work at InvertedChaos was
varied, but primarily consisted of taking wireframes and photoshop
designs and developing them into html templates and themes using the
latest web technologies including HTML5, CSS3 and javascript to create
websites that not only looked great but functioned equally so cross
browser. One of the most notable things I created at InvertedChaos were
Flash like animations, but without the flash; utilising Javascript
instead for full mobile device support.
