Jonathan Bloomer
Lead Front End Developer

Over the past 16 years I have continuously challenged myself with new languages, frameworks and methodologies. My core languages have always been html, css & javascript but I have also worked as a full stack php developer building both bespoke CMS solutions and small business applications. My current role at IAG is Front End Lead for a small React team and have been developing with React and Redux for the past 2 years.
