Dave has been with DevOpsGroup since 2017. As a Lead Consultant, he works with our clients to help them to turbocharge their software development processes and practices.
Despite going to university to study accounting, Dave came to realise that his interests lay with shifting bits, not counting beans, and after graduating took a ride on the DotCom bubble into his first job as a web developer.
Fast forward almost 20 years and Dave has accumulated a wealth of experience in software development, having served roles including software engineering, agile coaching and product ownership.
Day-to-day, Dave draws on this experience to identify and solve his clients’ varied software development problems, many of which he has seen many times before.
Dave enjoys finding new and novel ways to solve the same problems, but also enjoys the challenge of thinking on his feet to solve more nuanced problems in time-critical situations.
