A very interesting application built using a Domain Driven Design approach and the core communication between domains being taken care of by NServiceBus, which is very interesting in itself. The front end has been created with angular and MVC / WebAPI take care of the interaction to the back end.

Paul Seaman

Oracle Team Lead / Amec

Ross worked as an Analyst Developer in my team between September 2014 and November 2016 and quickly became someone I depended on.

During his time with us Ross consistently produced work of a high quality in both design and
execution. Often Ross was provided with requirements light on detail and had no problem using
his own intuition and analysis skills to design and propose a potential solution.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ross for any software development role. His tremendous
software development skills, integrity and professionalism make him an ideal candidate.

Terry Carr

VP Operations – Software / Loyds register

Ross worked for Senergy Software for over eight years and it has been my pleasure to work directly with him for four of those.

His commitment to projects was unswerving and could be relied upon to bring a project in under pressure. This often demanded extended hours outside of conventional office commitments.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ross. He is determined, dependable and innovative. Very easy to work with, but most important, fun. This last quality is not to be underestimated on a project and is often the key to success, especially on long term projects.
