Working with James was a truly collaborative experience. He is a great team player and a great listener. His insights were extremely helpful and his communication was clear and well-informed. These are all crucial skills to have when deadlines are looming, and James not only delivered ahead of schedule, but he also surpassed our expectations for quality. The responsive landing page he developed for our project was absolutely perfect. I look forward to working with him many more times in the future.
I can’t recommend James enough. He is an essential asset in both technical, and personal roles. Combining his always-positive attitude with his extensive knowledge of web development, it would be hard for a team to not succeed with him behind the steering wheel. As a tech lead, James offered support to all members without bias and approached each challenge with an open mind.
He approaches tasks with great technical knowledge and a desire to deeply understand problems. James cares about the quality of the team’s code, and seeks solutions that optimize processes and safeguard the performance and stability of applications and environments.
