Tom Clarkson

High end full stack developer in Sydney, Australia. Currently specialising in web/mobile UX and git internals.

This is as close as I get to a traditional CV

2010 - present: Consultant @ Willis Towers Watson

My role is currently focused on building online and mobile financial calculators for government agencies and super funds.

Earlier in my time at TW, I produced a quarter million lines of intranet code which I would be quite happy to never see again.

1998 - 2010: Various

I have been developing web apps long enough that I distinctly remember being excited about new scripting features in IE5.5. Since then I have worked with a wide variety of technologies for both small startups and large financial institutions.

Detailed history removed as I am not particularly interested in working on technologies that were cutting-edge fifteen years ago.

My current preferred tech stack

  • AWS
  • Ubuntu
  • Mongo
  • Node
  • ES6
  • Browserify/Rollup
  • SCSS
  • Angular/React
  • Cordova
  • Gulp
  • Mocha
  • ESLint
  • Sublime
  • Git

Other stuff I work with

  • .NET (Primarily C#)
  • Swift
  • Objective C (when I don't have a choice)
  • Java (Slightly less of an abomination than Obj-C)
  • SQL


Currently I am not actively looking for work and I am firmly based in Sydney. No unsolicited offers under $180k please.
