Front-end Web DeveloperPREVIOUS

Boots UK

I was part of the content marketing team for Boots.com. I collaborated with writers, designers, marketing managers and Saatchi & Saatchi to develop the online campaign for the multimillion-pound reboot of the No7 makeup brand. I combined content and designs from other team members to produce engaging sets of pages for campaigns. I was responsible for adding these campaigns to the large custom content management system and subsequently managing and editing these pages.

I led and represented the development team for the new Smoke Less campaign that featured on the homepage of Boots.com. I introduced new technologies to the team workflow and trained members to enable more powerful interactive tools to be built and published on the site.

Web App Developer

Outwoods Automation/BCM

I led a project commissioned by Boots Contract Manufacturing to produce an information logging application for the engineers in the Boots factory. I was the sole developer for the project and saw it through from planning to deployment. Following the applications success, the company was commissioned for a second similar application that I also developed.
