Ross

Principal Consultant - Head of Quality Management

BEng - Electronic and Computing Engineering, University of Brighton - MIET

I joined ITDev in the summer of 2013 and I am one of the ITDev principal consultants. I spend a large amount of my time working on client projects using my knowledge and experience of C/C++ in embedded systems. Other technical areas that I work in include scripting and the occasional involvement with VHDL for FPGAs.

One of my keen interests is in the field of modelling using the Unified Modelling Language (UML), which has proven to bring structure and organisation to large scale projects that I have worked on. I used UML extensively during my time working for Philips as part of developing an optical storage data path and at Garmin helping develop the GPSMAP® 8000 glass helm chart plotter.

During my career, I have led and managed several teams. At Garmin, I led a team of 5 software engineers developing a new sonar user experience implementation; at Philips, I led a small team whose responsibility was to produce a slim DVD writer drive; and at NXP, where I was a team leader and principal software engineer responsible for developing and maintaining the final production testing stages for a range of digital TV and set-top box ICs.

I have additionally worked for Xyratex (now Seagate) on a production test platform for their OneStorTM product range.

I am one of ITDev's project managers, looking after various external and internal projects, one of which involves the development and maintenance of company processes and procedures including quality management. I enjoy leading teams and also value ITDev's commitment to Continual Professional Development (CPD) and support this with my coaching and mentoring roles.

There's nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my wife and four children, eating curry and playing the guitar.
