I have developed solutions that cater for over 2.5m players concurrently, and I care that what I develop stands up to heavy usage.
Thanks to strong team and delivery management skills I promote communication between business and technical teams, on-shore or off-shore.
I have worked in active Development, Live Ops and DevOps for years, deploying live builds within minutes to over 60 nodes across the globe using a fully automated pipeline, managed by only a handful of people, giving maximum ability to the developers and providing teams with high quality data to drive data-informed and user-first practices for developing the best experiences.
I have extensive experience in international and on-shore Stakeholder Management, IT strategy definition and execution, pre-sales, Live Ops, DevOps, programme management, product development, resource planning and management
What I develop follows industry standards, whether in Java or .Net, backed by years of experience in systems architecture. I am always trying to learn about new technologies and applications to help find the best solution for internal or client-facing projects and deliverables.
I have set up multiple Hadoop clusters, pooling game telemetry and usage stats to Tableau instances for BI teams and execs
The APIs I have worked on drive web systems that connect to them for real-time updates, leader boards or account & purchase information
I have worked with various clients on email comms and web content strategies, increasing customer spend by an average of 3x
In the past I have facilitated UX / creative workshops and focus groups to trial new design concepts, usability and accessibility features
I ensure that my functional specifications, BRDs, pitch responses or use cases contain the highest possible level of detail
I have led and been part of ISO 27001 and PCI DSS audits in the past, and I ensure that my team follow best practice guidelines
