Software Engineer

Hi, I'm Bertie and I'm a software engineer passionate about TypeScript, NodeJS, AWS/AWS-CDK & CI/CD. Currently I'm working at a company called cinch in Manchester where we're taking the faff out of buying and selling cars!

About Me

I have 6 years' professional experience in software development, across the stack, where I've worked in both agency and in-house environments. As a result of this I have gained a wealth of useful experience over the years.

In more recent years my focus has shifted towards the DevOps and Observability world and how to release high quality software with confidence.

I'm also a keen open source contributor so feel free to get in touch below if you have anything exciting that you'd like to collaborate on!


I've spent the last 5 years in the industry working on a variety of products backed by varying tech stacks, giving me the experience to adapt to any working environment.


March 2020 - Current

I've spent the last year and a bit working at cinch which has been fantastic! The fast-paced and varied nature of the work combined with incredibly talented people, is a dream environment. As the company grows and our offering expands it only gets more exciting as a place to work. Looking forward to what the future has to bring...


May 2018 - March 2020

My time at Sainsbury's was an incredible learning experience and really allowed me to grow as a software developer. Managing enterprise development environments as well as complex sets of business requirements required developing a strong skill set that will serve me for the rest of my career. It also gave me my first foray into TypeScript and GraphQL, both of which I still enjoy using regularly!


March 2015 - May 2018

Havas Lynx gave me my professional introduction to web development. My time there taught me important skills such as version control and the concept of using build tooling, both of which gave me the foundations on which to become a good developer.
