I’m Andrew Hayward, a full-stack web developer, currently looking for new full-time engineering opportunities at senior/staff level. I have working rights in the UK, the EU (for now!) and the US.

I have been working remotely for several years, most recently for Etsy, and before that the Mozilla Foundation. I’ve otherwise been gainfully employed on and around the internet since the last century. (Some details, for those who care.)

I’ll generally be writing about my technical interests here, but there are no guarantees that I’ll stay entirely on topic. Just in case it’s not obvious, nothing I do write (technical or otherwise) is necessarily a reflection of my employer’s views.

This is a WordPress site. I don’t know whether I’m obliged to say something about being proud, but it does the job for now. It’s running a bespoke theme, and the font, where supported, is Ubuntu (with a liberal sprinkling of Font Awesome). You can blame access problems on Cloudflare and/or ServWise.
