Jonathon Waterhouse's C.V.

I'm a software engineer with going on 15+ years (!) of experience, who has been fortunate enough to work on a pretty varied set of problems in both start-ups and larger organisations. Primarily my experience has been as a lead full-stack developer across backend, frontend, devops, mobile and agile project management, mostly using a Python/Node/React/AWS stack.

Generally I am interested in working with good people on good problems.
