Career

BJSS Consulting

I work for BJSS consulting, a privately owned agile technology delivery consultancy.

BJSS Logo

I primarily work as a Technical Architect on client site, delivering software projects with small teams. I will cover other roles flexibly however, and often take on a more technical lead-type role as I’m an architect who remains very technical, reviewing code on a regular basis.

I often get involved with everything from business analysis to platform engineering/devops.

Recent deliveries include applications for a mobile workforce, including Android applications and supporting server-side components rolled out successfully to over 70 thousand devices.
I am currently working on microservice and event streaming based services for a Government client using cloud technologies and Kubernetes.
