About Me

I'm Matt, a full stack developer with an interest in embedded and IoT devices.

I study Computer Science at Lancaster University, where I am in my second year.

Currently I am seeking an internship for summer 2020; hopefully in a related field such as Software Engineering, DevOps, Networking or Technology Consultancy.

Work History

Aug 2019 - Sep 2019

  Radius Payment Solutions / UK Fuels
Data Cleanse Administrator

I was hired to assist with a short-length project. After many years of trading it had become clear that some customer data had become outdated and unreliable. The aim of the project was to update customer records and ensure that their details were both accurate and dependable.
Jul 2016 - Jul 2017

  Homebase
Replenishment Sales Assisstant

A year of experience at Homebase has given me valuable insight into the retail industry. The role involved anything from working stock, being active on the tills, to helping make customer deliveries. From this I have gained extensive experience with inventory management systems, point of sale terminals and merchandising; this allows my work to be efficient and to set standards. I believe this experience can be highly applicable to many roles.
