Products to meet complex requirements.
Built the right way.

Will Morgan

Hello. I'm Will, a senior web developer based in London, UK.

I've been building things for over 10 years.

I care about building products well, giving attention to detail all the way from prototyping to deployment.

Multi discipline.

Over many years of experience, I've had the responsibilities of lead frontend engineer, lead backend engineer, and systems architect.

Having helped to build a business over 4 years, I've brought in new processes to make development teams more efficient and more productive.

Recent projects:

The following are a few selected projects I've been directly involved in during my time at Better Brief.

Would you like to work together?

I'm interested in building things that make a positive difference to the world, especially if they're to do with music.

I can work in a variety of capacities - backend, frontend, or tech strategy.

I'm available for contracts from 1st November, 2014.

Let's talk.

Other things I like…

Coffee

Since starting an agency job in 2010, coffee has almost certainly got me to where I am now.

I've been a connoisseur ever since, with an arsenal of coffee weaponry to make the best drink possible.

I have an interest in seeing farmers fairly compensated for their hard work. Direct Trade is the way to go.

A special thank you to Florian of Taylor Street Baristas, and Catherine of Curators Coffee, for keeping me caffeinated.

Music

I've been in to various types of music over the years, ranging from heavy metal to house music.

Drum and bass is my vice of choice right now, and it looks like it's set to continue that way.

I make time to produce and DJ music.

Thanks for your time.
