Hi there πŸ‘‹ It's me, Peter

πŸ‘ˆ I'm that one over there with the stool-eating grin.

Would you like a job? πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

Ooooh, maybe... I've spent the last year or so doing short projects with early stage tech teams getting from 0.5 to 1 (the really sticky bit 😬). Gnarly questions I like dealing with are:

  • We've got a cool MVP but how do we make it, like, ready for actual, human customer people?
  • This ragtag bunch of blokes were super productive but now we have moneyz; how do make a proper team of people that consistently delivers?
  • Did those shoes come as a pair or did you mix them yourself?

I'm currently helping out at SELECT.dev where they're scaling their super-cool Snowflake cost-optimization productβ€”check it out if you're paying Snowflake loads!

Feel free to check my out of date CV and reach me at jobs@p-wm.dev.

What's your bag? πŸ›οΈ

  • Observability & Testing
  • Teamwork
  • Diversity

Diversity

I have a real passion for diversity. I want to make the world of tech look a bit less like me and enjoy giving my time to support this:

  • Code First: Girls β€” Coached a number of eight-week programmes and the 12-week intensive nanodegree to introduce women and non-binary people to coding, data and the web. Multiple participants have now started work as developers, and I'm over the moon!
  • codebar (Enable underrepresented people to learn programming in a collaborative environment) ,Career Accelerator (Raise opportunity and aspirations for 13-17 year olds interested and underrepresented in tech): Occasional coach and mentor
  • RailsGirls London: Presented Nested as a sponsor and volunteered as a coach
  • Living & Working With Depression: A popular blog I wrote about depression in the workplace. A lot of people contacted me saying that it had given them really useful tips for supporting direct reports or helped them to open up a dialogue with their own manager. Some people said it made them cry -- you've been warned!

You got any awards? πŸ’…

Only one that's relevant to GitHub (but let me know if you're interested in examples of excellent community co-production). I told you I'm into diversity!

What about pets? 🐭

I have two gerbils, The White One (brown coat) and The Brown One (albino). They like nibbling toilet rolls, digging and choosing a different place to pee each week.
