Julian Thomson

Developer / Wellington

Julian is a full-stack web developer with a favoured toolset that includes PHP, SilverStripe, JavaScript and CSS. As someone enthused by the web, and as technologies progress, his list of secondary tools is always growing. He is a passionate advocate for the digital customer, and holds himself to account for his work.

Julian holds a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Waikato university, where during his days of study, web development struck a chord. Since then he has spent several years working for central government working with business analysts, designers, content writers and other experts to build simple and accessible ways to interact with government. Since working alongside Jason Kiss, Julian has had a particular interest in frontend accessibility and ensuring that it's built in early into projects.

As a father of two, spare time is hard to come by, but when he does find it, he prioritises making memories with his family, reading classic pulp sci-fi and war novels and running amateur historic Instagram accounts.
