About Russell Sherwood

📖 Summary

At university, while studying a Computer Science degree, I enjoyed working on small website projects for many clients, some directly and some via web development agencies, where I quickly learnt vital skills in project analysis and delivering to tight timescales. After gaining a first class degree in Computer Science I began my career at Blue Baboon, a website development and design agency based in London, that I had worked closely with on a freelance basis on many occasions before. I am currently working at BSkyB as an agile software developer, working primarily in Python. My core skills lie in Python and PHP and I'm very passionate about agile development.Software Developer @ I joined Sky's Software Engineering Academy in 2011, where I was 'thrown in at the deep end' with a 4 week intense 'boot camp', learning vital skills in Agile Software Development. Shortly after the training course I joined Sky's Product and Sales Programme (PSP), helping to deliver a next generation sales platform for Sky's online, retail and direct sales channels. At the time of joining the team, the PSP project was in Phase 1, which has now been successfully delivered and has enabled the sign up of over 2 million new customers to Sky and vastly improved the sales experience for both customers and call centre staff. The programme has now moved on to Phase 2 to deliver an even better experience to Sky's existing 11 million+ customers. I have been directly involved in developing a RESTful API in Python as part of the PSP project. The service models Sky's entire product catalogue and allows other applications within the application stack to access pricing and rule data about Sky's products and offers. I began at Sky very inexperienced in Python, agile methodologies, and software testing but have gained a wealth of skills during my time here. I have also been fortunate enough to attend the Europython conference for three years, where I delivered talks on agile software development to around 50-100 developers. From September 2011 to Present (4 years 4 months) Freelance PHP Web Developer @ My speciality is in developing database driven websites using PHP5, MySQL, XHTML, JavaScript and CSS. I have been providing new websites and functional enhancements to small businesses. My main focus is in websites with content management systems. My code is always standards compliant, valid XHTML and CSS. I am aware of defensive measures for PHP security vulnerabilities including SQL injection, cross-site scripting and session hijacking and am always learning new skills based on my clients' diverse requests. Recent website enhancement projects included: • Paypal integration including IPN (instant payment notification) to instantly validate the payment, update the database and to send the buyer and seller a personalised, company branded email or provide a link to downloadable paid-for content. • Content Management Systems – to enable the end user to update their website without coding knowledge. • Search engine optimisation – provided services and advice including keyword and competitor analysis, adwords, google analytics, backlink building, blogs, forums, social networking and google optimised content. • Bulk emailers/mass marketing – using Interspire and SMTP.com, Activecampaign or MailChimp to send emails or newsletters to targeted, double-opt in clients • Website code translation from Lasso to PHP From 2009 to Present (6 years) Product Engineer @ Staffcare is a small company in Leatherhead with approximately 20 employees. The business focuses on delivering websites that communicate benefit packages between companies and their employees. During my one year university placement I obtained a great insight in to the business and had the opportunity to work within three areas of the business: • Product Engineering (Tailoring websites to client’s specifications using XSLT, CSS, XHTML and Javascript) • Support (Communicating directly with clients via telephone and e-mail, and investigating/solving any website issues) • Product Team (After six months I was seconded to the Product Team, who work on the base product closely with the development team. I was heavily involved in product testing and I was also directly involved in several large projects, including a project for one of the company’s largest clients. This required working closely with the client to very aggressive timescales, which were successfully met.) I received high commendations throughout the placement, and I am extremely pleased to have had the opportunity to work there. Throughout the year I demonstrated and strengthened my ability to work to tight deadlines with success, my competence at coding and my capability when working alone and as part of a team. Due to the success of my placement year I was invited back to the company from September 2010. From September 2010 to September 2011 (1 year 1 month) Technical Co-ordinator @ I had been working with “Blue Baboon Design”, a web design and marketing company, as a freelance web developer throughout my final year at university, and I was very happy to be offered a 3 month temporary position with them when I completed my degree. During my employment with them, my core responsibility was to code PHP websites in accordance with briefs and/or a photoshop design. During this period I produced several advanced content management system websites, including a redesign of the company’s own website, which can be seen in my online portfolio. Secondary responsibilities included technical support via phone and email, liaising with and assigning tasks to the freelance employees and accompanying the directors to client meetings. From June 2010 to September 2010 (4 months) Deputy Manager, Various Locations @ After joining the company in 2004 as a cashier I was promoted to deputy manager within 6 months. Since then I have been a deputy manager in stores at multiple locations in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey. My duties were extensive and included managing the shop, dealing with customer queries and organising and promoting in-shop fundraising activities and shop promotions. Through my employment with Ladbrokes I have attained experience in the management of busy high street shops and a high standard of customer service, complimented by my friendly, polite and articulate manner. From May 2004 to July 2010 (6 years 3 months) Product Engineer (Placement) @ From July 2008 to September 2009 (1 year 3 months) First Class BSc (Hons), Computer Science @ Kingston University From 2005 to 2010 A Levels, Maths, German, Information Technology @ Langley Grammar School From 1997 to 2004 Russell Sherwood is skilled in: Python, PHP, Agile Methodologies, Test Driven Development, CodeIgniter, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, XML, XSLT, Databases, XHTML, Software Engineering, Scrum, jQuery
