With a career & academic focus on web development, Kingsley Raspe specialises in designing & developing powerful web applications. His efforts are hand-coded and conform to the latest web standards, with a focus on user-friendliness, simplicity and speed.
Among his innovative accomplishments—while still a teen—Kingsley created and launched the website "whynotemploy.me", a portal where he first posted a one-page CV/Resume/Contact page about his own experience and education. After tweeting about it, the concept was embraced by Chicago-based integrated marketing agency The Grossbauer Group, which ultimately hired him for a 12-month internship whilst still at university. Kingsley continues to develop and expand on the concept of whynotemploy.me as a unified global platform for both job seekers and potential employers.
He currently serves as Director of Forwardslash Consulting Ltd., which provides consulting, design, development and implementation services to national and international clients. His specialties include: analysis, specification, design, development and implementation of database-driven web applications.
Kingsley previously worked as an eLearning Consultant & Developer with Stoke-on-Trent, UK-based Phones4u, overseeing front- and back-end development for internal micro sites and web applications, as well as maintenance of existing e-learning material. His role also included reporting, content collaboration and creating fun, informative and engaging eLearning material for its 5,000+ retail estate clients.
Kingsley earned an Upper Second Class Bachelor's (with) Honours degree in International Web Development and certification in HND Applied Information Technology from Staffordshire University, as well as a BTEC National Diploma in Applied Information Technology from Tamworth and Lichfield College.
