Tristan Brookes Front End Developer

Profile

Hey 👋 I'm a front end developer. I've been making websites for over 9 years now as a freelancer and at agencies/startups.

I enjoy using responsive technologies and the latest front end innovations to build websites. Asides from loving my career path I enjoy spending time walking, chatting (a *lot*), doodling whilst sipping a nice cup of Twinings Everyday and playing games with my friends.

Experience

Front End Developer Freelance

March 2020 - Present

I am currently in New South Wales (I would say travelling but social distancing is a big thing right now) and picking up smaller client projects back in the UK whilst I am here. Available to work with clients directly or via designers as long as you're UK based.

Full Stack Developer @ Wild Dog

October 2019 - March 2020

At Wild Dog Design I created the front end templates for websites as well as work on integrating with CMS's. I help out other members of staff where needed and work on interesting application-like projects for clients too, most recently in Vue. I rebuilt our companies build process into Webpack (from Gulp). Funnily enough this is the same description as last time I worked here but with more balance between front and back end.

Front End Developer Freelance

July 2019 - October 2019

Took some time to recover from a slipped disc but kept freelancing in the meantime. Power through and all that right? Mostly worked with Wild Dog still and another designer colleague.

Front End Developer / Senior Front End Developer @ Wild Dog

June 2016 - July 2019 (Senior Feb 2019 onwards)

At Wild Dog Design I create the front end templates for websites as well as work on integrating with CMS's. I help out other members of staff where needed and work on interesting application-like projects for clients too, most recently in Vue. Rebuilt our companies build process into Webpack (from Gulp).

Front End Developer @ Reward Cloud

Oct 2015 - April 2016

At Reward Cloud I was doing the front end and integration work for the B2B platform, which was based on Laravel, for selling gift cards to employees as well as the admin interface and analytics suite they provide.

Front End Developer @ Webhaus

Mar 2015 - Oct 2015

At Webhaus I continued my front end work in a freelance capacity. As well as still working with CMSs I'm also creating sites in systems like Jekyll and Shopify as well as using my time to learn even more new web technologies.

Front End Developer @ Code 7

Jan 2012 - Feb 2015

At Code 7 as front end developer I was in charge of setting up websites front and back ends as well as making them look all sorts of pretty and functional. Asides from my tasks as front end developer I also helped clients with their ongoing support work and dabbled in a bit of hosting setup etc for the sister company and developed a fair few Joomla! modules.
