I'm Steven McTainsh, a senior mobile and web developer at Alphero in Wellington, New Zealand. I'm a natural leader, have a positive attitude, am outcome focused, creative, strive to learn new technologies, have an eye for detail and a strong work ethic. These are just some of the qualities that make me a fantastic person to work with.
As part of the epic team at Alphero, I've lead - and contributed to - the build of awesome mobile and web projects. These include 3NOW, Newshub, TVNZ OnDemand, The Co-operative Bank's Online Banking, as well as Genesis Energy and Energy Online's new mobile apps.
I've also been involved in commercial web development for clients the world over - including the USA, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand. Projects include custom CMS builds, WordPress blogs and E-commerce solutions using PayPal.
In my spare time, I love listening to music, catching up on my favourite TV shows and improving my video editing skills.
All of the skills listed below have been used in commercial mobile and web projects. The list keeps growing - I'm never afraid to try a new language or platform.
