Groupe PSALaravel Developer
At Groupe PSA (Peugeot) I quickly helped the team move towards a more collaborative way of working, standardising packages and workflows where previously developers were building the same things over and over in different ways. I introduced the use of Vue.js components into the packages, providing reusable components that provided a great UX. I also introduced the use of Docker into the development toolchain and have consulted with the Integrations team to help improve their CI / CD pipelines. During my year I have also completed a number of internal projects, both new and inherited from previous developers.

Words Here LimitedFreelance
I was hired to create an innovative platform and plugin SDK for a London based startup. The platform would accept news articles from clients CMS systems and process them before sending them to Apple News via the Apple News API. The SDK was Composer based and plugged into the CMS to aid developers in getting their data into our platform. I assisted the directors with guidance on best practices and designed and built the platform using Laravel 5.6, which is now in production. I also set up an automated deployment pipeline using BitBucket pipelines and Docker.
