Experienced IT professional focused on back-end software development and Linux systems administration.
I have strong experience building systems with Python and PostgreSQL and deploying to CentOS and Debian. Working in a Developer/Operations role for 5 years I became heavily relied upon and worked closely with senior management. As a site reliability engineer I've kept web applications live and ensured that online marketing campaigns remained technically successful.
My time at a leading digital agency has made me expert in the technical side of online marketing. I've also come to appreciate human problems in contrast to technical issues when working on difficult projects. I believe I've worked long enough with short deadlines and challenging circumstances to recognise when development or systems are failing and to take measures to correct them.
My ideal job involves working with a team of people who all care about quality and building something genuinely useful.
