Classic Java Developer Finance J2EE London SEO Title Text :-)

I am Thomas Barker, a software developer. Most of my career has been spent building mid-tier software for early growth start-ups. I'm especially interested in financial services and large web deployments.

Currently I'm working full-time in West London. I've done a lot of different things there, but at the moment I mostly write logic for our internal accounting systems, deal with money handling and care for the Linux servers.

(Recruiters: It's always nice to be noticed, but please don't call our main switchboard at work. It's for customers. Just email me.)

Spent two years fiddling with the insides of Zopa the UK's first peer-to-peer lending site.
