Jonathan Foot

University of Nottingham Student, Studying Computer Science
and freelance software engineer.

I am a highly motivated Computer Science student at the University of Nottingham, with long term career goals of becoming a software engineer. I am proficient in C# and have experience designing and implementing commercial systems. I have strong time management and critical thinking skills when working on projects, supported by a breadth of technical skills. I previously attended a UTC (University Technical College specialising in Engineering and Computer Science), which provided me with extensive industry exposure through multiple employer led projects; this helped me to further develop my team-working and leadership skills. I am now looking to further my education, experience and skills in the technology industry.

Employment History

September 2019-July 2020

Student IT Support Tutor,
University of Nottingham

In my second year at University, I became a Student IT Support (SITS) Tutor for the University. 

July 2018 - September 2018

Freelance Software Engineer,
Reading Buses.

During the summer of 2018, after impressing the CEO and Head of Engineering at Reading Buses with my Twitter BOT idea, I was asked if I would like to develop this idea. Using their open data API, I developed a system using C# capable of tracking all buses operated by Reading Buses across their network for any predicated lateness. When the system predicts a bus running late the system automatically generates a message, publishing this to social media; keeping passengers up to date. The systems intellectual property has since been sold to the R2P group, a software supplier of Reading Buses to further develop and maintain it.
