Calum Ryan

Front-End Developer

As front-end developer, Calum finds ways to make our codebase more robust, scaleable and maintainable. He applies modern web standards and thorough accessibility checks to our existing and newly built websites.

Calum has 10 years’ experience working with many different kinds of front-end technologies. A keen problem-solver, he has a first-class degree in Multimedia Technology & Design. Before joining Helpful in 2019, he worked for We Create Digital, Wickedweb and Film Education.

Calum believes in meeting user needs through extensive and well-conducted usability testing. His work for Helpful already includes sites for Croydon Council, the Local Government Information Unit, Improving Healthcare Together and the General Optical Council.

Outside of Helpful, he enjoys road cycling, visiting museums and travelling the world. He organises a regular website club in London called Homebrew Website Club and participates in other IndieWeb events.
