Frontend development has always held a special place in my heart. It allows me to bring creative visions to life and create user experiences that leave a lasting impact. Working with technologies like React, I enjoy crafting beautiful and intuitive interfaces that captivate users.



While frontend development excites me, I have a strong inclination towards backend development, as it allows me to delve into the core functionality of an application, shaping its logic and powering its capabilities. With expertise in technologies like Node.js and PostgreSQL, I specialise in developing performant and secure backend solutions that meet modern application needs.

My primary focus lies in Node.js, TypeScript, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, and React, but my skill set extends far beyond these technologies.

Upon returning to the UK in 2022, I resumed my role as a Staff Software Engineer at ScreenCloud, By this time, I had already developed the entire billing system for the product and continued to maintain and expand its capabilities.

As part of my responsibilities, I constructed all the necessary UI components to facilitate credit card collection through Stripe, enabling customers to make payments via PayPal and Direct Debit. Additionally, I implemented enterprise-level offline invoicing payments, leveraging the functionality provided by Chargebee, our subscription management system. Moreover, I conducted thorough research and proof-of-concepts for a potential partnership with Microsoft, exploring the integration of our product into the Azure marketplace.

Throughout my tenure, I spearheaded the development of the comprehensive billing system and collaborated closely with customer support, customer success, finance, and marketing teams to address any billing-related matters.

At this time, ScreenCloud embarked on a major undertaking to rebuild the entire CMS product, initially named "Next" and later renamed "Studio," which is still in use today. I took on the challenge of working on various services and user interfaces within the new system, often working independently or collaboratively with other engineers.

Notably, I led the development of a comprehensive backend service utilising GraphQL and Postgraphile, leveraging the power of node and TypeScript. This service effectively communicated with PostgreSQL, ensuring efficient data management and retrieval.

In addition, I played a key role in the design and implementation of the new TypeScript-based frontend CMS. This redesigned interface seamlessly communicated with the backend service and players, delivering an enhanced user experience.

Furthermore, I pioneered the development of the authentication frontend and backend services, tightly integrated with Auth0. This robust authentication system facilitated secure access through various methods, including email and password, Google and LinkedIn login, as well as support for numerous Single Sign-On (SSO) providers such as Azure, Okta, and SAML.

Throughout my time at ScreenCloud, I remained at the forefront of technological advancements, driving innovation in the development of the brand-new product and ensuring secure and user-friendly experiences for our clients.

Additionally, I made significant contributions to the signage CMS product, both on the front and back end. Working with technologies such as PHP Laravel and Node.js with Express.js, I leveraged my expertise to enhance the functionality and performance of the CMS. Moreover, I played a pivotal role in rebuilding the billing infrastructure, streamlining the payment processes for improved customer experience. As part of this effort, I built an entire bookkeeping solution that effectively fed all our important billing data into Xero and reconciled invoices.

Recognising the importance of partnerships and reseller programs, I took the initiative to create a comprehensive resellers and partnerships program. This strategic initiative enabled ScreenCloud to expand its reach and forge valuable collaborations in the digital signage ecosystem.

Throughout my time at ScreenCloud, I showcased my proficiency in a range of technologies, including Laravel, Node.js, Express.js, and React, ensuring the seamless integration of frontend and backend components to deliver outstanding digital signage solutions.
