House of Type
My role at House of Type involved me working in small agile team of web developers and designers working with a wide range of clients, from small businesses to large organisations. It also required me to identify my client’s requirements and deliver new or updated web applications which meets those requirements.
In this role, I developed and customised applications using the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack. This ranges from deploying and customising e-commerce websites based on the popular open-source system called Magento, and developing websites and blogs based on WordPress, to developing bespoke back-office and public facing systems.
This role involved me managing several different projects simultaneously, juggling client’s needs and timescales along with mine. In this role I learned how to effectively communicate and deal with clients, and assess their needs and requirements.
