When: April 2012 - Present

I am the lead developer in a team of 3. I'm involved in the whole life cycle of the websites, from dicussing design concepts to putting the website live and maintaining it.

These are responsive, desktop and mobile optomised websites. A lot of the projects I've been involved with are that unique they also need a bespoke CMS to handle the requirements.

Lakestar Media

Title: Junior PHP Developer
When: June 2011 - April 2012

While working for Lakestar Media I was in a team of only 2 developers. This meant communication was essential. My roles included using a number of APIs to create bespoke tools for internal use which streamline the SEO/PPC teams workload.

These included tools to display a visual map of all PPC click throughs to clients websites so we could concentrate future campaigns to certain regions giving the client best return on their PPC campaign. Also automating some of the reporting which allowed data for the weekly / monthly reports to be gathered, calculated and exported to CSV in a matter of minutes. I would also create Facebook apps (compititions and informational apps) and maintain existing Expression Engine websites.
