In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner’s diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He’d recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner?
This is the seed of an idea that made Dyson into one of the global players on the world stage - a global market leader in consumer goods with a 20 year history of innovation and invention. Today, there are Dyson machines in over 70 countries around the world, and Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers and 4,000 employees worldwide.
Many consider Dyson more of a technology company than a traditional manufacturer, but Dyson is increasingly using their websites to reach new, and support existing customers. Enhanced Coding worked with Dyson at their headquarters in Malmesbury, England - placing staff onsite there to work with the Digital IT team on improving & maintaining Dyson's website and web presence.
Working with Ed has been a great pleasure because he is one of those rare developers who truly spans the business/technical divide.
From a technical standpoint, Ed has taken on an unfamiliar and complex technology (access control and security) with great ease, and delivered a really high-quality result. I know I can rely on Ed to ""do the right thing"" without having to specify every minute detail.
In terms of his business understanding, Ed very quickly picked up the functional requirements and how they impact on the technical solution. His contributions to discussions have always been pertinent and valuable, and he is comfortable working with business users.When describing technical challenges he is able to frame them in terms of the business impact of different technical options.
If not for Ed's relocation I'm sure that we'd be extending his contract again, as he is a valuable member of our team.
Ed immediately established a reputation within the team of being both knowledgeable and personable, and quickly made an impact on the project he was working on.
His technical skills are of a very high quality indeed, and he's naturally articulate and friendly - an asset to our team.
