Equipped with 10 years of extensive experience in the IT industry and a degree inComputer Science and Software Engineering, James is a double threat with five years project management experience.
James leads the development team and oversees the technical component of projects from the conception stages through to their delivery. This generally encompasses planning, implementing, and executing projects using different project management methodologies including Agile, PMBOK, PRINCE2 and some aspects of Waterfall.
Technology aside, James has considerable skills organising, leading, coaching, mentoring and collaborating with the team. Illustrating his commitment to ongoing training and the accessibility of education, in his spare time James has built a Learning ManagementSystem currently used in WA schools.
The first angel investor in the hugely successful software engineering company SEQTA, John fulfilled the role of Chairman of the new public unlisted holding company Education Horizons Group following their merger, until recently transitioning to a non-executive director role.
Working with global companies such as KPMGand Alexander Forbes over his career, John has served as a director on numerous public company boards, including Alexander ForbesLimited (the ultimate listed holding company). He has over 30 years’ experience in strategic planning, corporate finance, and financial management.
Not one to shy away from a challenge or learning experience, Jamie joined our team as a relatively new developer, getting himself through the door courtesy of a cover letter outlining how his need for a new challenge saw him learning Ruby on Rails, a new programming language to him, gaining a new qualification as a mature aged student, and ultimately successfully building his own app. Given management at Capture believes the best kind of solutions architect is one who is willing to look outside their comfort zone and learn the necessary skills to deliver the best possible product, they quickly snapped him up.
Jamie is now fluent across several platform sand programming languages, including but not limited to Ruby on Rails, Vue.js, Heroku, GitHub, Bootstrap, jQuery, and CSS/Grid.
