FRONT-END WEB DEVELOPER


About Me

I am a Front End Web Developer with a background in Design and Photography,
who has a passion for original and exciting ideas. I have four years of experience
with service, portfolio and ecommerce websites; coupling creativity and technical
knowledge to produce a high standard of work within team and solo projects.

Thomas Pink · October 2011 – Present

As Front End Web Developer, my role primarily consists of using BT’s Fresca
Commerce Platform to create and maintain site content. I manage CSS and
Javascript site-wide daily, to ensure that the site looks pixel perfect and inline
with the Web Designer’s layouts. As the sole developer in the Ecommerce
department, I have been given a breadth of work that is fundamentally aimed
at the increase of sales for the company, meaning that SEO, analytics and ease
of use are always a priority.

Clifton Clothing · April 2011 – September 2011

My responsibilities here included digital artwork creation and managing their
website using Magento. I would build product categories and campaigns in HTML
and CSS with web-optimised imagery, in order to engage the customer in their
journey throughout the site; this was a valuable introduction to e-commerce.

Venture 1 Consulting · January 2011 – March 2011

A temporary contract at Venture 1 Consulting gave me a brief introduction
to working with HTML, whilst making changes to their existing website. My
primary role here, however, was to migrate MS Exchange email accounts
from server to server, this was a great insight into using the command line,
as I was using it to automate this process.

Freelance work · Ongoing

Between jobs and in my spare time, I’ve designed and built a number of
websites, including my own. This has given me the opportunity to learn PHP
with Wordpress, a good idea of time keeping and the confidence of working
with different client demands.
