Paul Masri – OpenUp Music

Steve is an accomplished developer. He understands good software architecture, a range of coding languages and he is efficient too. My recent project required a REST API and a web-based admin control panel. Steve actually helped improve my specification by suggesting a better and more standards-compliant way of handling API authentication. He is also rare in being able to estimate well and delivered my project both on time and on budget.

Mark Williamson – Hanzo Archives CTO

Steve's been a strong contributor to our product software giving excellent advice and guiding our design to ensure a that we give our customers a good user experience. His coding has been top notch and he’s helped manage other team members to ensure that all aspects of the delivery have been what we need.

Tom Holder – Simpleweb Technical Director

Steve has an innate technical ability which is given further strength by his level of experience and general desire to do a good job. I have enjoyed working with Steve over and above many others because of his ability to gauge when a problem needs to be solved right and when a problem needs to be solved quickly. He learns new technology at an exceptional rate, always strives to do an excellent job regardless and makes the right engineering decisions.

Tom Beasley – Wired Media Founder & MD

I worked with Steve for 4 years at Wired Media. I've always found Steve to be loyal, punctual, professional and commercially minded. His work is of a very high standard and Steve continually strived to learn and try new technologies. I found Steve to be a model employee and a pleasure to know and work with.
