BetEasy February 2016 - Present
Senior Software Engineer
Full stack engineer (front end expertise). Working with React, Backbone and Laravel on a combination of maintaining legacy code, creating new modular code as well as creating new standalone projects and managing the infrastructure, CI/CD and deployment of those projects in AWS. Using GIT to develop on multiple repositories with multiple other engineers as well as utilising Jenkins to build and deploy code to various environments.
During my time at BetEasy I've lead the charge on getting our team up to standard by creating, maintaining and developing a style guide as well as linting procedures to ensure consistency between all engineers. I've also taken the lead on making sure our build infrastrucute is fast, reliable and doesn't slow down other engineers from commit to production.
During the companies acquisition of William Hill (a competitor), I played a pivotal role in the migration of customers around the experience that users saw on mobile and web during the migration phase, as well as making sure that all our web assets were rebranded with the new company name and colours.
I also was one of the lead engineers on a project to convert our existing legacy backbone and PHP website towards a more modern React single page application. During this project I worked within a team whose goal was to convert all legacy pages to the new modern SPA. This included uplifting Backbone and jQuery components up to modern React with Redux and CSS module components.
