About me

I lead software teams that deliver.

Hi, nice to meet you! I'm Martin McGirk. I'm a Software Team Lead in Sydney, Australia, with nearly 15 years experience specialising in web development.

People hire me because they have a team of developers working on a business-critical project, and they need someone to help the team deliver. I can help in a bunch of ways, usually by defining solution architectures, helping the team with the implementation details, liaising with stakeholders, running agile ceremonies, and making sure that we are solving the problems that are relevant to your business.

Most recently I led a team of 8 people at a large construction firm to ship a first-of-its-kind platform for scoping and managing multi-million dollar construction projects.

  • I bring experience. With nearly 15 years commercial experience of driving web application development, I like to think I set myself apart with my ability to focus on how software can solve business problems, rather than just how it can solve technical ones. So far I've been doing that across the construction, finance, education, oil & gas, and retail sectors.
  • I have full-stack experience. Full stack web development is where I started. My degree is in software engineering and I've been working with code since 2011. Since then I've done backend, frontend, databases, (some) devops, and everything in between. I've been leading teams for the last 6 years, and I can bring that holistic, technical view of how a prodcut is built to help your project succeed.
