Rob Mercer

I handle a broad range of web development tasks, working across many of the more complex web applications the company designs, develops and maintains.


After graduating from university with a 2:1 honours degree in Systems Development, I applied for a job as a Web Developer at a local company in Chelmsford called Netforce Group Plc. It was here that my path first crossed with both Dan and Michael, who were also working at Netforce at the time.

Soon after joining I became involved with the redevelopment of the City of London Corporation's public website, which I worked on until Netforce closed and went on to join the Corporation's internal web development team as a Senior Web Developer. Whilst there, I was one of the lead developers on two major redevelopments of their public website using the latest Microsoft technologies of the time.

My development background is predominantly in server-side programming using C# and ASP.Net, but I do also have ample experience of client-side technologies, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. I have written many scripts in my time using a variety of languages like Python, Bash and PowerShell.
