Photo showing me and a puppy

Hi! I'm Jonathan Sharpe. I'm a professional software engineer and an amateur guitarist and photographer. If you'd like to get in touch, you can email me here.

That's me to the right but, sadly, that isn't my puppy; it belongs to the Tromsø Villmarkssenter.

What do you do?

I'm a Senior Software Engineer for Pivotal Labs, usually based in London, UK. Pivotal aims to transform how the world builds software, bringing agile development techniques to start-ups and established companies.

In general, that means that I spend most of my time working with our clients' engineering teams, helping them to adopt Extreme Programming practices like test-driven development, continuous delivery and pair programming. I also work closely with the product and design parts of our small, balanced teams, helping to keep the focus on delivering value to the end users of the products we are developing.

Where are you?

Usually I work in London, but right now I'm on an engagement in Dublin, Ireland. Pivotal's office here can be found at Dogpatch Labs, in the CHQ Building.

Here are a few of the places I've been working recently:
