Lead Flutter Developer

Jan 2021 – December 2021

My main role as the Lead Flutter Developer at Lollipop was to build their app from scratch and deploy it within three months, which was achieved with great success. After that we worked on adding additional features, constantly improving and optimising the app. The app itself was built as a shopping system for recipes and groceries that was integrated via API with Sainsbury’s and BBC Good Food.

Research and Development iOS / Team Lead

July 2017 – December 2020

Working alongside the founders, my time at SafeToNet was spent with many responsibilities. Some of them included building and leading a team, R&D, plus much more. The highlight of my time at the business was spent developing a Keyboard extension that utilises AI to keep children safe.

IOS Developer

Jan 2017 – July 2017

I was hired as a developer at Boohoo in order so they could get their product over the line. Working as part of a great team of developers our main focus was in areas such as, building out the shopping cart, adding product listing pages, implementing support for push notifications with amazon pinpoint, amongst many other things. 

Lead iOS Developer / Firebase / UX

Buddy Reel
2018 – 2020

I was approached by the founders of Buddy Reel, a social video recording app, to develop and project manage the entire process from idea to MVP. The app will then continue to be worked on once the accelerator program ends, later on, this year.

Lead iOS Developer

June 2016 – December 2016

Helix is a health innovation lab situated onsite at St Marys Hospital, London. 

Working closely with an in-house UX team I project managed and built an app to help patients with Asthma during their stay at the hospital.

We used the Lean Startup Methodology, where feedback from clinicians and patients was used to help innovate and create a user-focused app.
