Developing changes to software related to parking services in an agile environment with Jira. These included:
Working in the Digital IT team at Dyson, enhancing the global Dyson website. My responsibilities included working with a business analyst in determining the user requirements, documenting a solution to the requirements and then building, testing and delivering the requirements. The website is internationalized.
The technologies used were ASP.NET, C#, SQL Server, Sitecore, jQuery, AngularJS, SQL Server 2012, Entity Framework, Moq, CSS/LESS, XSLT, Autofac, Worldpay. Also gained experience of Google Analytics, Mercurial and Kiln.
Full solo development of an Android app and website to show tax comparisons between income taxes and land taxes for the Young People’s Party (YPP). Worked with users to translate formulas from an Excel workbook into a website and app. The website can be found at ypptaxreform.org.uk and the app as com.timalmond.ypp on the Google Play store.
I have worked with Tim for a number of years and during that time have placed him with several of my clients. At all times whilst working with him, Tim has been open, honest and professional. Feedback from our clients has always been very positive and I would have no hesitation in recommending him for future roles.
Tim is a rare thing, a genuine expert who can be relied up on to deliver excellent work, usually above and beyond any specification you may give him!
In 2009 Tim helped to produce a path-breaking resource that extends monitoring of human rights violations in a new and more pro-active direction. The result was the database "Deaths and Disappearances of Journalists in Russia, since 1993" (http://journalists-in-russia.org) which brought together a mass of information and, for the first time, enabled a clear measure of impunity to be established. Under pressure of a short delivery deadline, Tim took great care in explaining the capacity and limitations of the programmes available for the task in hand, listening attentively throughout to the requirements of a technology-innocent customer. The result prompted wide interest and has formed the groundwork for the latest work in the field.
Tim was a contractor who worked as part of our team for around 18 months. Tim is very personable and gets on well with the other team members. Tim likes to keep up to date with the latest technologies and is a big advocate of open source solutions.
Working alongside Tim at the Intuitive Group I found him to be both friendly and professional. His ability as an analyst developer was of the highest order. His analytical and communication skills at board level were excellent. His technical knowledge was also very good and he would frequently be involved in technical discussions within the team of developers he was working with. I would highly recommend Tim and hope we have the chance to work together in the future.
