Web Developer


I was hired to pull together multiple web assets for Air System Components (a division of Tomkins Building Products). ASC was a house of brands and each brand had a website of some kind. There were about fifteen brands each with its own set of requirements and user tools specific to industrial ventilation systems. I had never managed a web server before I joined the Tomkins team, nor had I ever managed DNS. My experience at Tomkins helped to make me proficient at server management including disaster recovery.
