    Software Development team lead (Assistant vice president) - Credit Suisse | Jun 13 - Present

    Software Consultant | Nov 10 - Dec 12

    Working at Infusion has given me a chance to grow both my technical and soft skill sets. I have worked on a number of financial services projects where I have been part of both agile and none agile teams. The projects have included building composite WPF applications, assisting the migration of a C++ code base to C# and building out WCF services and frameworks in a scalable and preformat manner.

    Outside of project work I am an active member of the Infusion culture where I organise and run the bi monthly lunch and learns and have recorded learning material for the internal learning centre. I am also a member of the social committee where I help to organise office events to increase company cohesion and breed a positive enthused culture.

    Developer | Mar 10 - Oct 10

    In this role I was assisting with the development of an internal CMS and a modular framework to allow rapid web application development. For these projects I used C# 3.5 with ASP.NET MVC (Spark), SQL server 2008, NHibernate and Castle Windsor. The projects were managed through Kanban, which exposed me to an agile working environment. I found this approach more communicative and feel this enabled the team to understand the project goals and highlight any issues as they arose. We practiced pair programming which helped improve code quality, developer understanding and the reduction of bugs. I was able to grasp an understanding of MSpec and Rhinomocks through the BDD style of testing we implemented.

    Junior Developer - R & D Department | July 08 - Feb 10

    I developed a product that is used by clients to implement job board functionality within their organisations. My involvement with this product was multidisciplinary including software development, marketing and project management.

    My role required me to project manage new application features, including development and maintenance (built using VB.NET, ASP.NET & JQuery). I managed the quality assessment of the product and was also occasionally required to manage other developers. I have been instrumental in the construction and implementation of the new product structure. I was also responsible for the design and completion of new marketing campaigns, exploring innovative approaches and utilising existing tools such as Google Adwords.

    I designed and implemented new testing processes to ensure efficiency, whilst refining existing testing procedures where appropriate. As part of this I researched and developed a set of automated UI tests. I found my approach to be extremely beneficial so presented my findings to the rest of the team in the form of an information forum. Within the company I was a vocal advocate for the use of new technologies and tools which helped increase productivity e.g. ReSharper. As a result of this I helped to introduce unit testing within the company. This role brought extra responsibility and so allowed me to introduce new technologies and procedures to the team. I was able to develop my current skill set whilst also acquiring new less technical skills such as marketing and management.

    Junior Designer and Front End Developerr|July 06 - Dec 06

    I was responsible for the creation and development of marketing media for various projects within the company. My role involved elements of project management, including the creation and monitoring of project plans.

    The role exposed me to project management and allowed me to gain a firm understanding of the fundamentals.

    Junior Web Designer/Designer | Feb 06 - July 06

    In this role I designed and produced events programmes, events advertisements, banners and posters for the company events. I was also responsible for the design of a number of the company websites to coincide with print material, using Adobe Creative Suite.
