Jo Thomas

Sheffield \\ Web Developer \\ Rock Climber

Hi, my name is Jo!

I'm a full stack web developer with experience on many types of projects from SaaS web applications to bespoke front end development, social media websites and internal legacy applications. Some of the technologies I like to use include PHP, Symfony, CodeIgniter, MySQL, JavaScript, Vue.js, React, Git and Composer. I am based in Sheffield, but happy to work with people from other cities such as Leeds, Nottingham, Derby, Manchester and even London!

I am currently open for new freelance work or a permanent role. My previous work has included Tonic Works and Twinkl in Sheffield. Prior to this I was based in London where I worked as a web developer for ToucanTech and BusinessBecause.

When not writing code, I can often be found climbing on the gritstone edges of the Peak District, sea cliffs of Pembroke or in the mountains of Snowdonia!
