Simple team-based contact management for organisations via the web and over CardDAV. Contactzilla is one of Simpleweb's products – I've worked on numerous features, the most significant being the Symfony2-based CardDAV Sync framework, which implements the CardDAV sync protocol to supply bi-direction contact syncing between Contactzilla and other CardDAV providers such as Google Contacts.

Steve has an innate technical ability which is given further strength by his level of experience and general desire to do a good job. I have enjoyed working with Steve over and above many others because of his ability to gauge when a problem needs to be solved right and when a problem needs to be solved quickly. He always strives to do an excellent job regardless and makes the right engineering decisions. He learns new technology at an exceptional rate and is often the go to person to solve a technical challenge. As a team player, Steve appears equally happy to integrate with an existing team and role his sleeves up directly working on a project, help mentor less experienced developers, or lead a project as a technical oversight. I have always been happy taking Steve in to customer meetings safe in the knowledge that he will answer questions in a composed and accurate manner whilst not being afraid to give his opinion on technical issues. Steve is well liked and highly respected by his colleagues from all areas of the business. I will miss working with Steve and am confident in recommending him for any technical position.

Having worked first-hand with Steve on different occasions, I cannot emphasize enough how detail-oriented he is. His broader skills, combined with his ability to design solutions and architect products that scale, make him a source of inspiration for me. It's always a joy to spend time working alongside Steve.
