December 00 - December 06: Securehosting Limited, Woburn Street, Ampthill
Web Development Team Leader
In December 2000 I joined Securehosting (a payment service provider) as a Junior Web Developer, as I felt the role better suited my career goals. From accepting the role, I self taught myself PHP and felt fully competent within 3 months. Within 12 months, I was promoted to Web Developer and in 2003 when my immediate boss left the company, I was again promoted to Web Development Team Leader. This is the highest position achievable at the company and involves managing a team of 4 developers and support staff. The position involves a level of administration including holiday management, position reviews, staff discipline and resource management.
 
March 01 - Current: RBWEB Development
Web Development Sole Trader
In 2001 I registered the domain rbweb.co.uk and setup as a sole trader working for a select number of design agencies that needed a technical developer. I have worked on a number of private projects including phpbasket.com (a shopping cart solution) which I co-authored with an ex-colleague. I recently finished an e-commerce site cargogranite.co.uk using php basket for a friends business. Rbweb.co.uk also has a portfolio section, which lists a number of the projects I have been involved in.
 
September 98 - December 00: MMT-DS, Union Street, Bedford
Systems Administrator
I started this role after completing my GCSE's, in conjunction with a BTEC HND at Bedford College. During the course I became keen on web development and the opportunity arose to build an Intranet for MMT-DS. Again, through self teaching of ASP, JavaScript and Microsoft Access, I created an Intranet system that stored documents, had attendance registers and allowed work to be scheduled for the other developers. During my time with the company I became a Microsoft Certified Professional in IIS 4 and also passed two JavaScript courses (see Professional Qualifications section). With this experience I expanded the Intranet to include a ticket system with allowed the companies customers to place support issues. This system allowed the management to run reports on the time developers where taking to answer support issues.
