I am available from 21th Nov

Gino Scaletti

I am driven and self-motivated, yet during my varied career, have proved personable, keen to work alongside others and open to new ideas. During the last 6 years as a freelance web developer, I have demonstrated the ability to work to defined budgets and timeframes within a creative, high-pressured and dynamic industry.

I write semantic HTML5 with a BEM approach and use SASS/COMPASS to preprocess CSS. I have an expert knowledge of Responsive web development practices using either Bourbon Neat, Griddle or Bootstrap if projects require it. I use jQuery but I also have an understanding of OO Javascript and can integrate APIs serving JSON. I can implement markup in views for Umbraco and I write functional, bespoke WordPress themes. I automate compiling, includes and minifing processes with Grunt; I use GIT with Sourcetree and regularly use JIRA and Slack. I also have a good working knowledge of Angular JS.

I am a good communicator, have an understanding of Agile processes and I frequently participate on clients’ calls.

I use my own Mac – References available upon request.
