Paul Love

Front-end technical lead and developer

I have over 15 years experience leading the successful delivery of solid front-end builds for complex e-commerce and CMS projects, including Waitrose, Boots, Debenhams, The British Heart Foundation, The Home Office and Royal Shakespeare Company.

More recently I've been doing product-driven work, completing an 11-month stint as part of the team at Scoota (née Rockabox).

I sit very firmly on the visual and user-centric side of the front-end spectrum, rather than the JS side. I prefer to work closely with product managers, designers and UX people and am comfortable working directly with clients.

I'm currently focusing on projects that involve component-led CSS, living styleguides and SSGs.

I also do microsites. And make cakes.

Recommendations

Paul is very professional and highly skilled in XHTML, CSS, accessibility and I wish I had him on more projects.

Scott Cowan

C# Developer and Technologist

One of the very best Tech Leads I’ve worked with; highly proficient and very knowledgeable. He encourages his team to take ownership of their work whilst providing clear direction from a higher level. Paul also possess excellent communication skills whether conversing with clients, developers or other team members who may not be from a technical background.

Paul was a pleasure working with!

Anastia Uys

HR Manager

Paul is one of the finest front-end developers around. I hav worked with him at Grand Union, but also through my own company Amjada. His code is bullet-proof, dedication awesome, and his work is absolutely top-class. By recommending him I fear he will be in even more demand than he is already, but there you go!

Adam Johnston

Director - Amjada

Paul is very accurate at his work and has eye for details. I have gained a lot of good experiences regarding accessibility and usability from him and another colleague working in same company, experiences which I am going to lift up in my coming job hunting.

I worked with Paul Love at Grand Union for over six months. He's a fantastic technical lead with an impressive depth of knowledge, heaps of experience, and, to boot, is one of the most calm and patient men I've ever met! Heartily recommended.
