Personal Attributes

Time Management

I stay on top of tasks given to me and I never go past client deadlines. I use project management tools such as JIRA to triage issues and forecast effort estimates for projects using story points.

Problem Solving

I work through complex problems on my own, but I’m not afraid to ask for help in areas I’m not familiar with. I enjoy using creative thinking to present effective solutions through the use of rapid prototyping at hackathons/startup weekends.

Team Player

I work well in a team and can fill both leader and supporting positions with confidence. I enjoy working in a collaborative team structure but I have worked independently on projects as well.

Quality Management

I practice test driven development by creating automated unit tests using Jest, to ensure that all functions of a system operate as expected.

Written Communication

I take pride in producing clear and concise reports, programs and documentation for all code as demonstrated by liaising with clients and project teams.
