oh look it's Mike

Hi there!

I am currently working as a Senior Product Developer at AND Digital, working across clients including Costa Coffee and Avon. Covering everything from evaluating and producing POC work, to being the technical lead on larger scale international projects.

I use agile and TDD to build quality code in deliverable increments. I am communicative and personable, being able to build relationships with stakeholders and work with people with different roles and experience.

I also work hard to train and mentor developers around me, and often run trainings and lunch and learns to expand the knowledge of wider teams about different technologies or concepts.

I came to AND wanting to gain experience in a range of technical skills as well as expand my methods of management and coaching.

  • At Costa I acted as a lead full-stack engineer on a greenfield React/AEM project, planning the architecture of how the frontend, backend, and external API services would all come together.
  • I worked closely with the AEM Lead and other team members to plan each stage of the project and get the most out of all technologies involved.
