Chris Skinner - London, England

Chris Skinner's avatar


I’m a Senior Front End Developer with over 10 years experience leading and delivering applications across a variety of front end frameworks (React, Angular, Vue), and most recently Nextjs via private client projects.

My experience ranges from small agencies and startups to high volume, high traffic data driven sites within the insurance and warranty sector. Drawing on previous career experience as an international sports coach, along with being a Certified Scrum Master, I am very comfortable leading, mentoring, and working alongside cross-functional teams in an agile environment or taking on smaller projects with sole responsibility.

Prior to my current work as a developer, I was a sports coach for 12 years, mentoring students across the Alps to become snowboard instructors and running water-sports centres across the Maldivian Atolls. My career shift was prompted by a sports blog I started writing in 2008. I still coach snowboarding part-time, whenever possible throughout the year, most recently with trips to China and Japan.
