Hi, I'm Martin

I’m a Front-end web developer from Nottingham. Advocate of standards, simplicity, and performance.


What I do

Currently Senior Front-end Developer with @KainosSoftware working mostly alongside a team of brilliant Service and UX Designers at the DVSA improving and maintaining the DVSA’s MOT system.

I’m experienced with all stages of web project delivery from specification, UX reviews, design systems, digital prototyping and Javascript components.

Working with: HTML, CSS/SASS, Object Oriented Javascript, React, Webpack, PHP, npm, NodeJS and command line tools.

Passionate about the front-end, accessibility, and usability, I also have experience working with a Microsoft stack including Visual Studio and C# MVC environments, particularly Umbraco. I have been fortunate enough to work with talented colleagues, building solutions for clients as Post Office, Royal Mail, Pizza Hut and Argos.

Typical tools

Our tools come and go, and so I like to have proper understanding of the principles which underpin them foremost. If we can be great here, we can get to grips with any tool. Right now, I’m mostly using:

VS Code, Webpack, React, Wordpress.

What else?

When not code mongering I’m usually running around somewhere, shredding the trails on my bike, or bouldering. I love an open, communicative environment and making new connections with great designers and developers. Lover of philosophy and constant personal and technical development - we’re forever students.
