<h2><a href='https://peg.co'>Peg</a></h2>
<h3>CTO, 2014 – Present</h3>
<p><a href='https://peg.co'>Peg</a> makes it quicker, easier and safer for brands to work with influential video creators - on YouTube and other platforms. We launched our beta in Q4 2014 and raised our seed round in Q2 2015.</p>
<p>Peg's currently being used by hundreds of the world's top brands and agencies including Google, Twitter, Unilever, Microsoft, Sky, Ogilvy and McCann.</p>
<p>As CTO I’m heading up the development of our platform with a team of truly awesome developers. Right now Peg is built with a Rails backend and AngularJS front-end, with a bit of extra magic sprinkled throughout!</p>
<p>Feel free to drop me an email at <a href='mailto:alex@peg.co'>alex@peg.co</a> for anything Peg-related! Or if you'd like, drop by our offices at <a href='https://goo.gl/maps/OI7bi'>113 Shoreditch High St, London, E1 6JV</a>.</p>

<h3>Senior Coach, Jun 2013 – Sep 2014</h3>
<p>At <a href='http://www.makersacademy.com'>Makers Academy</a> - a 12-week coding bootcamp in Shoreditch - I oversaw the course's latter half, covering Ruby, TDD, Rails, JavaScript, responsive design & realtime technologies.</p>
<p>Makers is an awesome place to learn to code! I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to become a developer. A couple of media appearances from my time at MA are below:</p>
