Marlon Dedakis

I'm a full stack .NET developer and Team Leader with around a decade of experience in leading software projects and technical teams. I am passionate about helping people achieve their full potential and providing team members with the tools and support they need to achieve this.

I have extensive experience in managing software project cycles, building complete and scalable web applications, APIs and databases from the ground up, utilising the Agile process to deliver client solutions within agreed deadlines. I have a passion for learning and enjoy creative problem solving.

I aim to stay as current as possible with new technologies, libraries and frameworks, whilst ensuring I utilise more generalised approaches, such as design patterns, OOP & TDD principles to my work.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Marlon for some time on the development of my organisation’s website, providing digital services to our external users and internal staff, and most recently on integrating this into our wider technical landscape. I was particularly impressed by Marlon’s ability to cut through and clarify complex integration requirements, especially where limited contextual information had been provided. He is also skilled at managing client relationships effectively: he has built a strong partnership with our team, and is a trusted technical advisor.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Marlon for three years now, most recently as my team lead. As a team lead he was closely involved with everybody in the team, bringing out the best in people and encouraging them to reach their goals. He is an excellent communicator and is able to break down complex problems into digestible chunks. Marlon is also highly technical and still gets involved in development work alongside leading the team. Well versed in Agile methodologies, he helped transition one of our projects to this way of working, including guiding the client. Everything considered, any employee would be lucky to have Marlon as their team lead.

Marlon has been my team leader for the last three years. It has been nothing but a pleasure to work with him both professionally and at an individual level. He has great communication skills and is also has many years of experience in technology. But more importantly able to close the gap between communicating difficult technical requirements to the client in a way that they understand. In those three years I have been with him, he did a fantastic job catering to the 5 plus developers and the needs of the client. Overall, a great person with an unmatched positive attitude and leadership skills that doesn’t crack under pressure. He would be a great addition to any team.
