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 Software Engineering Consultant for Ignition Works, usually based in London, UK. Currently we're collaborating with 33 Teams to provide engineering enablement, unlocking teams' ability to deliver value stably, frequently and predictably, to companies like The LEGO Group.

Prior to that I worked for VMware Tanzu Labs (formerly Pivotal Labs) bringing agile development techniques to the enterprise, instilling a culture of test-driven development, pair programming, user-centric design, and cloud native operations.

I'm also a volunteer mentor for Code Your Future, a coding school for refugees and disadvantaged people.

Where are you?

I'm based in East London, near the famous flower market.
