I Just recently finished working for a media company (in Norway). I was in charge of the development team and it is was my responsibility all website projects were delivered on time, but most importantly without errors.
I’m a perfectionist and take great pride in producing clean working code, that I have tested thoroughly myself. Being the lead for other developers, I know first hand how frustrating it can be when they deliver projects without testing. So I did a lot of QA testing in my previous role.
I always want to aim for 100% scores in various testing sites like Google PageSpeed scores, GTmetrix, and lighthouse (accessibility testing tool). This article on how I reached number one in Google rankings highlights the importance I give them.
I am an expert in accessibility WCAG 2.0 as it is a legal requirement in Norway. In addition to accessibility, I also focus strongly on the user experience and how the website works on a functional level.
For these reasons it is tempting to call myself both a UI / UX front end developer.
Therefore when I am building a website or leading a project, my sole purpose is to produce a website that is accessible and user-friendly.
Every single project I work with uses GIT and gulp. So I have plenty of experience in these areas as well.
I was an Osteopath for 10 years before I became a freelance front-end developer. A career I poured everything into and can walk away having achieved the very top levels.
Transferrable skills from that career to web development.
• Extremely effective communication skills.
• An effective teacher.
• An authority figure.
• Making difficult decisions.
• Ability to diagnose and problem solve.
• Taking responsibility in and of a scenario.
• Highly professional.
• Man/team management.
