CTO, Find a Player - mobile app company with 60,000 monthly active users. Consultant specialising in building medium-large scale web applications. Expert in Phoenix, Elixir, OTP and Ruby.
I've built multiple teams of high-quality developers in the past, and can provide you with advice on recruitment strategy, as well as how to interview and gauge core skill levels. I can even help you come up with an aptitude test!
I've been working as a software consultant for many years, including with brands such as Sequoia Capital, The European Union, Arnold Clark, Mozilla, 888.com and Tennent’s Larger.
I have built everything from small-scale social networks using graph databases to multilingual backends for apps that work at scale.
My specialism is with backend infrastructure and with medium to large-scale web applications.
I can help you design an aptitude test for your prospective employees. Having hired many people in the past and being a developer, I can quickly tell the difference between a good hire and a great one!
If you are between CTOs, or are a tech company with a small "t" who is looking for someone to provide some direction in your company on a part time basis, I'm here to help. I'm already acting as an interim CTO for multiple companies and helping them successfully prioritise their workload.
It was a very good call. John has a wealth of experience and he doesn't hesitate to share it.
