A little bit more about me..
I'm an independent remote senior developer and entrepreneur based in Dublin, Ireland. I absolutely love anything web related, since the early days of dial-up-modems.
I am a full-stack developer (I build both beautiful UI interfaces, as well as the logic that powers them), and have spent over 15 years honing my craft.
I have a first class honours degree in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering from Trinity College Dublin; but everything I have learned about the online-world has been self-taught.
I consider myself a life-long learner and my curiousity has led me into various types of roles which I thoroughly enjoy.
I have been involved in many different businesses over the years. After college I got involved in a sportswear clothing startup, moved on to web development, and after a number of years founded my own tech startup Dynamic Reservations for the travel market. We raised over €500k of seed capital through a number of investors including Enterprise Ireland.
Since Dynamic Reservations, I have been working in a consulting role, most recently with US based Skystone LLC to help them expand their modular construction businesses into the Irish and UK market.
Daragh put in place some simple tools and effective processes that has allowed us to serve even more clients, faster.
As a busy MD with little time on my hands, this was exactly the kind of help I needed to give me the confidence to grow VROOM Digital in the coming 12 months.
Daragh is passionate, smart and reliable. We've continued to work with Daragh on a number of projects following the success of our first engagement.
We hired Daragh to consult on our new fintech startup, because of his previous experience in startup land - raising funding, building an MVP and receiving funding from Enterprise Ireland.
His lean and agile approach to our startup, really helped us to formulate the best way to get our MVP built using existing technologies in the quickest possible time.
I would have no hesitation recommending Daragh for project consultation roles, if you need help to critically analyse your startup idea, and figure out processes and workflows.
I worked with Daragh in Dynamic Reservations as the tech lead of a remote development team. We had team members in the Ukraine, Dublin and Wexford (myself), so we were pretty distributed.
Daragh was responsible for every aspect of our tooling and processes, putting everything we needed into place so we could work as a highly effective remote team. As our team changed and grew over time, so did our our processes, evolving and adapting to meet the needs of the product and the team, and Daragh was key to this.
Overall I'd say this was one of the most effective teams I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of, and I believe it wouldn't have been possible without Daragh.
