Web Developer
Aurora Fashions / Oasis Fashions – Old Street, London – 2012-Current

From 2012 I had been working for Aurora Fashions. I was in a team of five made up of other developers and our purpose was to offer a digital service to five different fashion brands (Oasis, Warehouse, Bastyan, Karen Millien, and Coast). This would be to maintain and update the brands website, develop online features, fix any online issues, and implement 3rd party installations (such as Olapic, Sub2, and Snap Fashion). During the year of 2013 Aurora split and the brands became independent, where I continued my employment at Oasis Fashions and focused solely on this brand. During my time with Oasis I have worked more closely with designers and continued to develop many of the brands online features as well as develop the homepage of their new responsive website and other content pages. While working for Oasis I have gained more experience developing across desktop, tablet and mobile.
