Work & Clients

Currently I am working for SaaS On-Site Search provider, Klevu Oy, as a Senior Solutions Architect, providing consultancy to clients, heading up integrations with ecommerce frameworks, influencing the product roadmap and leading the development team to deliver new features for the core product plus Magento, Shopify and BigCommerce.

Below is a small selection of the clients I have previously worked with over the past decade or so, either directly or via an agency or contract, followed by a brief description of the services I personally provided.

Joseph understands the the customer, their requirements, their objectives and the success criteria of the project, and that’s why he will be an asset to any company he works with in the future.

Pamela Ravenscroft. Operations Director, Space 48

Harvey Nichols Project Lead

  • Magento Enterprise ecommerce website rebuild.
  • Stakeholder management, development lead and solutions architect.
  • Load testing and performance optimisation to handle upcoming sale traffic.

I’ve worked with Joseph on a number of projects and he’s been a great manager, mentor and project lead. He always made time to help team members no matter how small the problem.

He would encourage me to develop my ideas further and give me time to consider them in more detail, allowing me to return with a stronger proposal that he would support all the way through.

Yousef Cisco. Frontend Development Lead, Harvey Nichols

Ipswich Town FC Development Lead

  • Magento 2 ecommerce website build.
  • Mentor and team lead of development team.
  • Ecommerce consultancy and solutions architecture.

It was clear from the first meeting that Joseph was a specialist within his field, instantly putting myself and other stakeholders at ease with his ability to convey technical aspects in a non-technical friendly manner.

I was left with no hesitation that the advice being given had our business needs at the forefront of all recommendations.

Screwfix Omni-Channel API Lead Developer

  • Lead developer on creation of Level 3 RESTful API.
  • Integration endpoint development for ReactJS SPA frontend.
  • Automated testing and mocking of endpoints using TDD.

Susie Watson Designs Migration & Rebuild

  • Magento 2 ecommerce website rebuild and data migration.
  • Pre-sales, solutions architecture, project management and development.
  • Netsuite integration, Mood Board wishlist and bespoke frontend UI.

We needed a team who could not only implement the specific customisations we required, but migrate across a large amount of customer, order, product and SEO data to the new platform.

Some of the biggest miracles Joseph performed took place behind the scenes, and our web team can’t believe how much easier the day-to-day management of our website now is. I can’t believe how smoothly the site launch went, and since then sales have been through the roof.

Fraser Mackenzie. Web Manager, Susie Watson Designs

Next Development & Support

  • PHP feature development.
  • Performance optimisation and BAU support.

DinoPC Gaming PC Configurator

  • Magento 2 ecommerce website build and data migration.
  • Pre-sales, solutions architecture, project management and development.
  • Gaming PC Configurator, component compatibility rule generation and validation.

We came to Joseph with a rather challenging project, which he tackled in his stride showing exceptional technical knowledge and professionalism throughout.

Our expectations were high and we had a relatively limited budget to work with, but he endeavoured to see the project through with a custom solution that has a high level of automation and sound logic and structure.

Vladimir Kuznetsov. Owner, DinoPC

Stoke City FC Ecommerce Consultant

  • Multi-server automated deployment with Bamboo.
  • Ecommerce consultancy and performance optimisation.

Laura Ashley Lead Developer

  • Bespoke ecommerce platform creation in PHP.
  • Client liaison, lead developer and solutions architect.

Even as a young gun Joseph was a smart and dedicated developer with a strong sense of standards and attention to detail. He spearheaded many projects from a development point of view and helped us build great client relationships.

Joseph keeps the right balance between the 80/20-approach of finding the perfect answer to a riddle. On one side, he knows how to get 80% of the value out of any feature with 20% of the effort. On the other side, he does not stop until he finds the solution to a problem that is key to the business.

Vanessa Platz. Co-Founder & Managing Director, Atelier Blanche GmbH Developer

  • Magento Enterprise BAU support.
  • Ad-hoc Magento feature development.

Joseph was great to work with and was key in leading the delivery of several of our high profile projects. If you need somebody to lead an ecommerce project then you won’t go wrong with Joe.
