Highlights

  • Developed an Internet Banking App for my client, enabling them to service a growing customer base on an emerging mobile platform, increasing the overall appeal of the products and services being offered.
  • Helped a client to migrate a large database of their existing users to a newly developed website, ensuring data integrity and consistency. Successfully minimised the downtime and ensured smooth delivery.
  • Delivered a proof-of-concept solution that had confirmed a business case for the significant reduction of operations costs of my client’s call centre.
  • Enabled a client to attract a large customer base by creating an appealing set of online profile management/professional networking tools.
  • Helped a client to develop a mobile solution for its corporate clients, thus enable them to provide a better service to existing customers as well as to acquire new customers.

What my clients say

Art has been instrumental in the early days of Scheduleflow. His expertise and hands-on involvement enabled us to iterate rapidly, build and deliver what our target market needed.
Art demonstrated his insight into development practices, by implementing streamlined development processes, allowing us to deliver features rapidly and to a very high level of quality. This meant we had dramatically reduced delivery timelines and minimal physical testing.
Art is one of the most intelligent and broadly skilled senior developer I have worked with. I recommend him whole heartedly and would work with him again in a nano second.

Paul Tyrrel, CEO, scheduleflow.com

Art ranks amongst the best web developers I have worked with. He has the rare combination of strong technical skills, people skills and a good awareness of the larger business challenges. He is always proactive with his research and contributions to the rest of the team. I recommend Art thoroughly to any prospective employer and would happily work with him on any future engagements.

David Hodgman, Business Analyst, linkme.com.au

Art is an extremely talented developer with a passion to do things better. Art was always willing to tackle the problems others would hate. Never scared to refactor the most complex code. The quality of his work and attention to detail was a great asset to SEEK during some really challenging and complex projects.

Alan Mastrantoni, Solutions Lead, seek.com.au

Art is a highly skilled and highly motivated developer. He has an excellent grasp of software architecture and .net technologies. His skills combined with his enthusiasm for software development make him a valuable asset to any team. He is definitely one of the best developers I have worked with.
