Chris’ day to day role at VIX is as Lead Full Stack Developer but he also works on infrastructure and architecture alongside Tony.

Chris completed a Bachelor’s degree in Games Software Development at Sheffield Hallam and then worked as a Sales and Applications engineer at SMS Machines & Automation before becoming the longest serving member at VIX, other than Tony, joining in June 2015.

Chris’ day to day role at VIX is as a Lead Full Stack Developer but he also works on infrastructure and architecture alongside Tony. Chris has programming experience in many programming and scripting languages due to his slightly unusual career path (games development -> robotics/automation engineering -> web/applications developer), which include;

C++, C#, Objective C, DirectX, OpenGL, Python, HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript and Java, Structured Text (STX)

Chris worked on numerous large public and private sector projects, often leading development. These include:

- NHS Apps Beta

- PHE Intranet Beta

- Catalogue and Ordering system for world leading Pharmaceutical company

Chris develops games as a hobby outside of work. He’s also just bought his first house so spends a lot of time doing bits and bobs of DIY.
