'Twas the night before Codemas, when all through the office, not a creature was stirring, not even a frontend developer.

When out on the computer screen, there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter....
Enough of this terrible nonsense... Fancy jingling all the way in to 2021 with a new opportunity!? Woah there, not just a new opportunity...
Like the sound of leading the way and putting your stamp on greenfield projects, setting up solutions from scratch, and transforming existing solutions all whilst doing so for some of the UK's biggest brands and sports organisations?
