About Us/The TeamWant 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’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!
