Technical Director, Union Digital

Kris Kelly

I head up the technical and development team at Union Digital. My responsibility is to ensure that all projects are delivered with both technical accuracy and imagination. In the department we have a wide range of skills in PHP programming, and various CMS platforms, including WordPress, Drupal, Python, Umbraco and Magento.

We have the capacity to develop a range of websites; from relatively simple up to enterprise size sites with both e-commerce and complex database functionality.

We like to be involved in projects at the very earliest stages – so that technical aspects can be discussed both with the clients and account teams at the outset. We also work closely with the digital designers and front-end developers, to ensure seamless delivery of projects. A lot of our work also involves helping clients with site developments or enhancements, and advising on hosting, capacity and security issues.

I’ve been working as a developer since 1995, with a wide range of technical and IT roles, latterly as Lead Developer for Heehaw Digital.
