Senior Web Developer

Oli is a talented developer and a great problem solver. He’s intelligent and articulate and great in client meetings, as well as having a fantastic positive attitude to work.

I’d highly recommend Oli. Great developer, great to work with, and a great bloke.

Gary McCarthy, Managing Director, Eazytiger Ltd

Oli is one of the most naturally gifted developers I’ve ever have the pleasure of working with. Not only does he possess that rare capacity for truly understanding even the most complex of technical challenges, he’s instantly able to model it in his head, fully negotiate his way through it’s complexity and explain it in simple terms anyone can understand. If only all developers were like that! As with all true professionals, Oli always pro-actively managed the projects he worked on, ensuring everything was delivered on time, to spec and of the highest quality – making my life as his manager an absolute dream.

Ged Day, Production Director, Eazytiger Ltd

Working alongside Oli was a pleasure, he’s a fantastic problem solver and can put his mind to any development challenge with ease. Not only is he knowledgable and diligent in his approach to work, but he’s also a great person to get on with outside of work, which is a fantastic attribute to have in a developer. I’d highly recommend Oli’s work, and hope to work with Oli in the future.

Christian Thomas, Consultant Web Developer, Eazytiger Ltd

Oli is one of those rare developers who always fills you with complete confidence on tough projects. He has the skills, creativity and work-ethic to just get things done the right way – which he finds with ruthless efficiency. An invaluable asset to whichever agency is lucky enough to have him on the roster.

David Lambie, Creative Manager, Eazytiger Ltd

Oli has been a great colleague to work with over the past 18 months. His passion as a developer has shone through on every project he’s worked on and his dedication ensures the job always gets done! I look forward to working with Oli again in the future.

Gareth Morgans, Key Account Manager, Eazytiger Ltd

Oli is a great asset to Eazytiger! His hard-working and motivated mentality means that he is always striving to be the best. Not just for himself, but also for the company. His eye for detail when testing his work means that there is very little feedback from an end user, and has resulted in many of my projects being completed swiftly, in budget and within time estimates. I put a high level in trust in Oli’s ability and he has not let me down to date.

Ben Mactaggart, Account Executive, Eazytiger Ltd

EazytigerMay 2011 – February 2012

Web Developer

It was a great pleasure to work with Oli in the same company. I found him having very wide knowledge about developing different types of website, web and mobile applications. Not only me, but anybody having any kind of programming problem could always get a friendly and very professional advice from Oli. His attitude and commitment to work are perfect. I wish everybody having such a person in their team.

Tomasz Tyka, Senior Developer, Eazytiger Ltd

Oli is an enthusiastic developer with a great sense of humour. His knowledge and experience in web development make him a great asset to any team. Always interested in the latest and greatest of web development, it’s refreshing to work with someone who takes a genuine interest in their job.

Lewis Wright, Consultant Web Developer, Eazytiger Ltd

It’s a pleasure working with Oli, not only because he always produced what was needed, but because of his approach and sense of humour that he brought to the studio. He became part of the team almost instantly and fitted in perfectly. He’s a genuinely nice chap, and a great programmer. He’d make a great contribution to any team.

John Holt Ripley, Creative Director, Eazytiger Ltd

From an Account Management perspective, Oli is the type of Developer you want to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and accurate. The quality of his work is outstanding and the satisfaction from our clients is a testament to that. He is a pleasure to sit down with for quoting sessions as he is always looking at projects from all angles; seeing ways to add value while coming up with innovation solutions. Oli would strengthen any Development team he joined.

Alistair Henry, Account Executive, Eazytiger Ltd

Oli is an amazing person to have on your team, very focused and liked to be the best at what he done. Always on time and was willing to help anyone do any thing. Nothing was to big or small for him to tackle.

Pleasure to work with.

Kayleigh Nash, Telesales, EQ Software

Spinning ClockMay 2008 – November 2010

Web Developer & ICT Manager

Oli is a rare find in the IT world. He is highly technically competent, an excellent communicator and is always enthusiastic and positive, no matter what challenges he’s faced with. Oli joined our web development team in May 2008 and I have had the pleasure of managing him for the duration of his time at Spinning Clock.

To be honest, Oli doesn’t need ‘managing’. He’s very good at identifying what needs to be done and just getting on with it. No fuss, no bother. He’s not one of these people who baulks at doing anything which isn’t within his ‘defined role’ either. He is a real team player who will volunteer to help out other teams, even if that means taking on extra work.

During his time here, as well as being a top notch web developer, he’s also been responsible for all our IT systems – keeping all our systems running smoothly and providing support to everyone here. During Oli’s reign as IT manager there were zero major problems or outages. Given the complexity of our setup here (multiple OS’s, very large file-systems) this is a massive achievement and a testament to Oli’s diligence and pro-active approach to IT support.

All in all, I’m very sorry to be losing Oli. He’s not just another IT guy. He’s a top bloke with a great sense of humour who is fantastic at his job.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Oli for a web development, IT management or technical support role.

Don Turner, Managing Director, Spinning Clock

Oli is a great addition to any company. He’s a great developer, highly motivated, and easy to get on with. Constantly improving himself he’s always learning about the latest technologies and coming up with great new solutions and alternatives to existing approaches that make his work fresh and exciting.

Kevin Portman, Web Developer, Spinning Clock

Oli was an absolute pleasure to work with. A really motivated, enthusiastic and talented guy. He is always willing to help achieve the best possible results for a client even if it means always going the extra mile. He is adaptable, very quick to learn, develop new skills and a really great team player. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Oli.

Tim Bassford, Head of Design & Video Production, Spinning Clock

Oli is a great guy and a pleasure to work and spend time with. The best recommendation I can give is that given any job Oli will complete it on time and to the highest standard.

Faced with any task he will always exceed expectations and actively find solutions should he be faced with a problem. He is always willing to try different technologies and workflows and will never disappoint.

One of the best I’ve worked with – no doubt.

Mark Osborne, Multimedia Designer, Spinning Clock

Oli is brilliant to work with! He has an amazing knowledge and is always able to provide a solution to any problems I had. I’m not very technical, but regardless how complex or easy my IT/AV/Internet issues where, I was gobsmacked that he always understood and was able to talk me through how to fix the issue!

He is a real gentleman too: great fun, hard working and a brilliant sense of humour too! Miss working with him still!
