Oasis Healthcare, Application Development Manager
August 2013 - Present, Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
Oasis is a leading provider of NHS and private dental care in the UK. With over 200 practices we provide for over 1.5 million patients. At Oasis I have built a cross functional development team with development and testing experience, as well as managing various technical projects of approximately £500K. Recently I have also had strong input into Oasis’ future IT strategy since new owners came on board in May.
My agile development experience has helped me create a new team, building a strong culture focussed on delivering quality through automated testing and software control, working together, satisfying stakeholders, and keeping happy. My flat management style has formed a team that drives and motivates themselves to deliver, and the team is continuing to grow as we demonstrate value to the business.
