Carl is a highly skilled developer and his breadth of knowledge across disciplines
is envious. His contributions to the DevOps team at Journey have been invaluable
and it's been a pleasure to gain an insight into his experience and absorb a
fraction of his knowledge in this field. He is meticulous, methodical and his
attention to detail is matched by very few I have worked with in the past. Carl
is a true asset to any client/business and I do hope our paths cross again in the
not to distant future.
Tech Lead Architect / Engineer
In nutshell... If it's Symfony, you want Carl.
His depth of knowledge is astounding. Combined with his tight grasp on supporting
technologies, he is the quintessential Symfony developer.
Senior PHP / Elasticsearch developer
Carl is an exceptional developer. His attention to detail is almost unmatched in
any developer I have worked with. His passion for technology shines through in the
quality of his work.
Carl is an enthusiastic advocate of open source technologies, and regularly attends
meetups and conferences to keep his knowledge up to date. He is also helping to
maintain my Elasticsearch client library on Github, a subject he has extensive
Always willing to go the extra distance to deliver robust, scalable and maintainable
code, Carl is a developer I would happily work with again.
Senior Director Of Engineering
I worked with Carl on a brief, time sensitive project to deliver the MVP of a product.
Even though it was completed in time, below budget and above spec it still had ~90%
code testing coverage, behaviour driven testing and full continuous integration. Carl
has very high attention to detail, drive and determination to complete set tasks and
an in depth technical knowledge. I learned a lot from Carl in the short time we worked
together. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Carl to anyone considering taking him on.
VP Engineering and Architecture
Carl rapidly became a cornerstone of the engineering team at Rightster. His expertise
and experience within software and infrastructure development, and their associated best
practices, was instrumental in the success of the strong engineering team that Carl helped
to build at Rightster. Carl was always eager to learn new skills and continuously expanded
his skillset to include technical leadership, infrastructure-as-code, search and
distributed cloud-based software architecture.
Carl is possessed with hawk-like attention to detail, and has a knack of discovering the
logic holes and security flaws that most others tend to miss. He's a great technologist
and a huge asset to any team lucky enough to have him.
