Successfully setup a key business department responsible for:

  • Efficient operation flow in accordance with company standards, policies and procedures.

Passion for invention, design and process improvement:

  • Prepared a spec and coded a wireframe for a warehouse/yard management system [HTML, JavaScript, Angular, MongoDB, Illustrator]
  • Designed and created a statistical database together with a frontend [Access, Excel, VBA]
  • Used “VBA” to code tools such as a barcode generator, manifest creator as well as auto snapshot emails [Visual Basic]
  • Created a script that automated history checks for depot process compliance, significantly reducing the time required to produce the report from hours to minutes [VBA, HTML, JavaScript]
  • Produced and edited a new starters induction video [After Effects, Photoshop]
  • My idea to incorporate additional information in currently used barcodes is used across the network

Additional Info

I take responsibility of my personal progression by
constantly evaluating and upgrading my skills in order to stay on top of web development.
Moreover, I fulfil my internal need to express myself through graphics and design whilst
my more technical side is tested through learning and utilised in programming.
