UX – Development – Design

Adam Harringtonfrontend web developer

I’m Adam Harrington and I am a web developer with full-stack experience and a front-end focus. Currently I’m working with Swrve on their dashboard application as a frontend software engineer. Previously I headed technology for Uplift, Ireland’s social justice campaigning and petitions platform.

I’m not currently looking for new opportunities but am always keen to hear about upcoming projects in areas that interest me.

I’m interested in cutting edge frontend technologies. I’m working with React, Redux & ImmutableJS but I’m also really interested in visual projects with D3 and similar.

If you are a recruiter, please only contact me by email.
