I'm a web developer based in the South Island and am currently looking for full-time permanent roles. I am also open to contracts that are longer than six months.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology and a total of two years work experience. My main speciality is back-end web development; however, I am flexible and am willing to try new things. I love to code in my spare time, and also manage my own Linux-based servers.
My current framework of choice is Laravel, and favourite language is PHP. I also am very interested in Java, C#, Ruby on Rails, and HTML/CSS/JQuery. When developing web development projects, I like to use Composer - in combination with Bower, Grunt, and Node Package Manager. Very recently, I have taken a liking to BackboneJS - for which I plan to use in my latest personal project.
I have solid organisation and time management skills, am very thorough, like to consider multiple solutions from many angles, and genuinely want to use my skills to benefit others. I also love working in an Agile environment with frequent collaboration between team members, management, and clients.
Ideally, I would like my role to be in the South Island - I am also open to remote working from home. I am also open to suitable opportunities in the Wellington region.
