Keith Henry's Experience

Development Manager

NorthgateArinso

Privately Held; 5001-10,000 employees; Human Resources industry

February 2005Present (9 years 9 months) Chester, United Kingdom

My division sells software and services to help ensure people are fairly and correctly paid. The product suite includes products for salary reviews, market pay comparison, analytical job evaluation and equal pay auditing.

Our core application is a large scale multi-tier web system that can be highly configured for each client. This product is built in C# 4 and Microsoft SQL 2008, with client customisations written in VB.Net. The web interface is ASP.Net MVC and AJAX, while the configuration tools are desktop applications.

I manage the development team and we use an Agile philosophy to deliver quality products to market quickly. We use Team Foundation Server for lifecycle management.

Over the last six years I have built and supported the team through a turbulent time for the company as it went from a 30 employee family run firm to a division in a 10,000 strong multi-national HR solutions provider.

Amcat is a multinational company with offices and customers in the US, UK, Europe, New Zealand and South Africa. Amcat provides predictive outbound and inbound contact centre systems across a wide variety of different client requirements. Amcat’s clients vary from small 50 seat installations to 1000 seat call centres, and they have over 150 clients in the UK alone.

As Lead Consultant I had a clear and highly detailed understanding of the technology that Amcat’s products relied on, as well as the wide variety of technologies that their clients needed them to integrate with. Typically this meant having an in-depth understanding of Microsoft SQL and .Net technologies, but others were also often involved.
