Ian Warner

Full Stack Developer


Full stack developer with 15 years experience, focussed on PHP Laravel, Wordpress, MySQL, AngularJS, Sass, Haml and CoffeeScript. Crafting responsive websites, social pages and hybrid mobile applications. Skilled in DevOps including Jenkins, Gulp, git as well as setting up and administering Linux servers in AWS.

Testing: I do not cut corners when it comes to testing; readability and maintainability of the code. Using automated Behat, Karma and Protractor tests for full coverage code. Accessibility and mobile first approaches to development help reduce expensive re-writes at a later stage.

Open source: personal project is CodeBlender (http://codeblender.net) a Bootstrap / AngularJS rapid prototyping toolset. Built through Middleman and utilising atomic development techniques to create helpers that conform to current accessibility and SEO microformat best practices.

SEO: Excellent knowledge of SEO; in redeveloping GreenTouch's website I enabled them to rank page 1 on Google for key phrase 'massage Wimbledon'. A 600% increase in new customers is a direct result of a responsive, fast and improved SEO profile.

Management: CTO level experience gained at Ask Hanuman, delivering a financial comparison site in Thailand. Responsibilities included mentoring others in development, tools and technologies. My excellent interpersonal skills allowed me to hire staff and build a team of product managers, user experience experts and quality performance engineers.

Startups: Worked in many startups including my own; Logotribe (Nokia ringtones and logos); BeepTaxi (think Uber circa 2004). Experienced working remotely, done this from Tokyo, Ubud and Bangkok before.

Currently experimenting with React, Node and Mongo. All made with Sublime and my Mac!
