Work Experience

Backend Developer at Pernod Ricard (February 2017 - Current)

As a tech lead at Pernod Ricard I am in charge of developing the in-house content management system used to create and manage the multiple brand websites. The CMS has helped us consolidate 80 different brand websites that were previously developed by different third parties, reducing costs and making them easier and faster to maintain. I have also helped setup a continuous integration process that reduces manual work by flagging errors and automating testing.

The CMS, brand sites, and associated microservices are all developed in Symfony 3.4, PHP 7.3, and are deployed on AWS.

Backend Developer (October 2012 - February 2017)

These are some of the companies I have worked for as a contract backend developer: Time Inc, Wemanity, Hearst UK, and JeemTV.

The main tools I’ve used during this time have been PHP 7.1+, Symfony 2+3, PHPUnit, Bootstrap, jQuery, HTML5, CSS, AWS, Jenkins, Vagrant, and Docker. I’ve also used Couchbase, Solr, Ansible, Rackspace cloud servers, Zookeeper, Redis, and Zend in some capacity.

More about me

I’m an old school science fiction fan (Asimov, Bradbury, Philip K. Dick) but I’ll read almost any kind of fiction I can get my hands on. I enjoy a good game of Ultimate. I started playing while at university and I’ve continued ever since playing for a number of club teams from different countries and representing Spain and Great Britain at European and World level competitions. I also like to take pictures and I maintain a tumblr blog.
