Welcoming Spencer, our new Senior Developer

Posted by on May 21, 2018 in | No Comments

We’re delighted to welcome Spencer to our creative studio, here in Exeter. As our new Senior Developer, he’s in charge of all things code-based and brings with him over 10 years of full-stack agency experience in everything web – from pixel-perfect front-ends to customised WordPress back-ends and API integrations. With a degree in Film Production, he’s also handy in a pub quiz ‘movie trivia’ round.

Spencer has already proved himself to be a wizard in front-end web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript; he’s equally at home with back-end languages such as PHP, and is no stranger to a LAMP stack, SEO, UI/UX and server set-up and management. Having banked hundreds of hours working on some of the most popular e-com and CMS platforms such as OpenCart, WooCommerce, and WordPress, he can easily turn his hand to creating custom modules and plug-ins for these platforms and integrate them with external APIs.

Spencer proclaims that he is not a geek, likening himself more to Star-Lord than Bruce Banner – but we beg to differ. We’ve never come across a developer who doesn’t have a pasty complexion from a lack of natural light and hunched shoulders from shrugging at designers all day. Besides, there’s nothing wrong with being a geek, as Drive’s Creative Director keeps reminding the team from behind his wall of toys and memorabilia.

Outside work, Spencer spends his time with his family – with two young children to keep him busy, he rarely finds time for the other two loves in his life: films and sleep. Spencer, we welcome you…you won’t be getting much sleep here!
