Beryl (contract)

June 2020 - now()

Beryl is a bike-share company in the UK and US with a focus on sustainability.

After my plans to move from London to Australia were interrupted by COVID. I was asked if I'd like to return to Beryl to help launch a few key projects.

A year and a half later, COVID is still a thing and I'm still with beryl changing the way cities move.

February 2018 - February 2020

Beryl is a bike-share company in the UK and US with a focus on sustainability.

I joined beryl as a frontend Engineer. But quickly migrated to the backend and then to team lead.

I steered engineering efforts with help from our CTO and helped take the product from 0 to over a million journeys.


balena.io (full-time)

November 2014 - November 2017

Balena.io is a PAAS that enables developers update and manage embedded Linux devices.

I joined Balena early and wore many hats through my time there.

Mostly I was involved in developer relations. Building out documentation, example projects and advocating for the product at meetups & tradeshows.

I also contributed to the frontend stack. Helping to maintain most of the websites and the component library.


Firing Squad (full-time)

November 2013 - November 2014

Firing Squad was a digital agency building WordPress sites for some of South Africa's largest companies including dimension data, Condé Nast and PWC.

I got my start at Firing Squad, converting PSDs to custom WordPress themes and maintaining some big custom WordPress installs.

Please don't ever make me do that again. 😂
