<h3>Web Developer</h3>
<h4>May 2009 - December 2009, June 2010 - September 2010</h4>
<p>I was introduced to the company through a 6 month internship as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Once the placement was complete they hired me on a part time basis, to fit around my A levels.</p>
<p>During my first period of employment my main responsibility was maintaining an in house, consumer focussed web application. This involved refactoring an established codebase and setting up a continuous integration system.</p>
<p>After a short period of unemployment I was re-hired, with a primary focus of developing and maintaining web applications for clients.</p>
