A Little About Me

Greg Ives at HackSheffield

Hi there, I’m Greg Ives! I’m a freelance developer, based in Nottingham. I’m currently building Myles Fitness Challenges, an app that allows challengers to run, walk or cycle a wide range of virtual routes from around the world.

I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2020 with a master’s degree in Computer Science, after which I worked at Capital One as a software engineer. During my time at Capital One, I worked in a web development team and a developer tools team, managing services on Jenkins and Amazon Web Services.

Things I’m excited about at the moment:

  • Building performant and accessible websites
  • Cross-platform design systems
  • Great developer experience without sacrificing user experience
  • Hackathons that are inclusive and don’t burn you out

When I’m not staring at my computer, I like to get outside for a walk or bike ride. I also enjoy playing the cornet in Hucknall and Linby Brass Band.
