Lead front-end developer at Incuna
I’m the lead front-end developer at Incuna Ltd, a digital agency based in Oxford specialising in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
As lead developer, I’m responsible for setting technical direction, software architecture decisions and code standards for the front-end team, but I love getting my hands dirty at the business end of coding, and I’m currently working with technologies like AngularJS, BackboneJS, Sass and Grunt to name only a few.
I also really enjoy mentoring junior developers. My philosophy is that the more you share your knowledge, the more you can delegate and improve the productivity of the whole team.
