I’m Mathew James

I’m a lead software engineer at the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency. I have worked in multiple government departments. My previous role was lead developer at the Intellectual Property Office based in Newport. I have built numerous services that have undergone assessments with Government Digital Service.

I have retired numerous bespoke, legacy applications including mainframe and replaced them with modern enterprise class workflow and rules driven applications, developed within a SOA environment. I am working with modern frameworks and languages, as well as working practices such as TDD, BDD, continuous integration and continuous delivery.

I have a BSC degree in Computer Science and have a keen interest in making existing services better maintaining simplicity is key.
