I'm an easy going kind of guy who enjoys tackling technical challenges, discussing current web trends and learning new tricks.
I believe in keeping things simple while constantly delivering quality using the best tools available.
When I'm not coding; you can normally find me drinking tea, mountain biking, snowboarding (badly) and watching films.
Over the years I have adopted the lean way of thinking when it comes to software development, i believe its essential to have short feedback loops to constantly drive development and deliver quality
Confirm requirements and identify value, aim to reduce waste and produce list of deliverables.
Turn stories into code using the right tools for the right job, turn stories into testable code to confirm requirements
Review and deploy production code in seconds using a scripted delivery pipeline with rollback capabilities
Showcase functionality and discuss next iteration of requirements, fix defects and refine requirements
Stephen Breakey, Senior Technical Project Manager. Net Mobile AG
We hired Justen for a few months on contract and he performed excellently and above our expectations. Justen performed so well, we in fact wanted to hire him on a permanent basis, unfortunately we acted too late. I would have no problem recommending Justen for any technical role.
Richard Patterson, Head of Digital. Whitewater Creative Services
Justen was a great asset to our team and he will be really missed here. He takes great pride in his work and always rises to the challenge of any development issues. He is dedicated and passionate about his work, his easy going nature and sense of humour made working with Justen an all round enjoyable experience.
Julian Simpson, Digital Production Manager. Galileo Integrated Marketing
Justen was a joy to work with. On numerous occasions, his contributions were both above and beyond the call of duty and vital to the success of difficult and incredibly time-intense projects. As a team member he makes outstanding contributions, leads fellow team members where necessary and is never afraid to jump in with both feet when times are difficult.
Paul Allen, Senior Project Manager. Sense Internet
Justen is always actively and enthusiastically keen to learn and to evolve, making him an innovative developer for whom no challenge is ever too big to handle. Justen is always generous in sharing his knowledge and experience too, and is an all round great guy to work with. I have no problem in recommending Justen to any potential employer.
