I am a versatile, hands-on developer with 3 years’ experience with a proven ability to identify, analyse & solve problems, deal with clients and manage projects from conception to delivery. Having spent 8 years in sales prior to returning to web development I possess a business acumen and appreciation of commercial sensitivities rarely found in a developer. My background has made me passionate about buidling web applications that automate and improve business processes and improve peoples lives.
I joined Storyful in 2011 in order to effect a change in the way news was generated. Over the three years I worked there we had a huge imapct on the news industry, something of which I am immensely proud. Since starting at Eagle Alpha my focus is to continue to push boundries every day and bring the type of innovation which made Storyful a success to the Equity Research Industry.
My role at Eagle Alpha has a number of key duties. Firstly improving our client facing products, delivering improvements in functionality & improving customer experience. I work closely with our research analysts to source and harness datasets and API's which can deliver valuable data via research. Also focusing on streamlining and automating their processes increasing their efficiency allowing them to focus on their skills which add value.
Over the past three years in Storyful I have been involved in many diverse projects and activities. I have worked closely with journalists on the improving efficiencies in the publishing CMS, with partners in delivering content via API, MRSS and custom methods and with end users in improving the UI of story templates. All of this goes hand in hand with ongoing maintanance and support of current systems. I have a pivotal role in testing and debugging within the dev team due to the extensive knowledge and experience I have built up over three years.
Over this time I worked for companies including Imagine Telecom, pTools, Sam360 in roles including Team Leader and Sales Manager.
