About Us/The Team

Want to see the brains behind Bairwell? What are you - a zombie?

We are Bairwell Ltd – a PHP and WordPress Development company based in Clipstone, Mansfield (North Nottinghamshire: technically just inside Newark and Sherwood!).

We’ve been established since 2008 as a Limited company, but we’ve done plenty of work as freelancers (self-employed) and employees before this.

Richard has actually been developing computer programs since he was 3 (but he was 21 before he was actually doing it as a full time job). Richard concentrates on the more “back-end” coding side of things – the bits which don’t look impressive (as they aren’t pretty), but which actually make things work.

He prefers to use PHP as his programming language of choice, but has used Bash, BASIC, C, C++, C#.Net, Javascript, Perl, Python and Ruby where necessary.

He’s made things such as a facial recognition JSON API system, an entire maths game website backend, customisable WordPress themes, a full site recorder and playback suite, a web directory system and much more besides: there’s very little that phases him in code and development.

Katharine makes up the other half of Bairwell – she’s more on the designer and making things look nice side of things: although she can code up a WordPress website and has previously been a Microsoft Certified Engineer and CISCO CCNA: so she knows her computer gubbins!

Katharine started off freelancing as a sole trader offering WordPress development services under the “Pixel Punk” brand back in 2008 and had a growing number of enquiries – so much so she managed to tempted Richard to work with her from his full-time job.

To accommodate this and to grow further, Pixel Punk was then folded into a Limited company Richard was already running for his freelance PHP development work and so Bairwell was born!

Impressed by our knowledge and experience?

We won’t bite… Well, we might nibble slightly if we’re offered food… 😉
