I am a driven individual who enjoys being active in the development of our products to ensure they are robust enough to handle our customers’ needs while maintaining a high level of performance. My role within Handheld is to develop the API which securely connects our users’ data to the apps which they interact with. The fast-paced, team-based environment in Handheld has taught me a lot beyond just software development. My own entrepreneurial knowledge has also improved considerably through my time spent around a team with such significant business experience.
“I am from Waterford and a dedicated Information Technology worker for twenty five years. Started out as a programmer and moved along to database design in the SAP area. Have worked for three multinationals working in various countries of the world including Ireland, United Kingdom, United States of America and Brazil spending all of my career living in those countries. Having moved back home to bring up my family have joined Handheld to help keep the database being used by Handheld up to date, working well and at the best speed all the time for everyone using the Handheld software.”
My favorite word in the English language is simplicity. If software isn’t simple for a user to understand, it’s not finished. If my code is complex, it requires refactoring. The obvious answer is usually the correct one. This is how I design software. My role in handheld is frontend development. I build software allowing our users to harness their data to be more productive and succeeded. My role in its simplest form is to hide the complex servers and databases and turn them into a few clicks and a button.
