Hi, my name is

Jamie Davies.

I like to build things.

I'm a Software Engineer based in London specializing in developing exceptional, high-quality websites and applications. I'm currently working at Yieldify as a Software Engineer.

About Me

Hey there! I’m a young versatile Software Engineer who lives to build beautiful products from the ground up. I started programming at the age of 8, and at 14 raised funding for my first start-up.

For the past 5+ years, I've been honing my skills in web, backend and more recently iOS development. I enjoy constantly learning and improving my skills with the technologies that keep evolving in this ever-changing field!

Here's a few things I'm experienced with:

  • JavaScript
  • TypeScript
  • Node.js
  • React
  • HTML & CSS
  • Python
  • PHP
  • Docker
  • SQL
  • noSQL
