Rob Gilbert

Front End Developer

Personal Service Company

I pride myself on communicating and collaborating effectively with design teams and other Devs as well as writing cutting edge javascript and css.

Outside of work I have 5 children, all boys, so obviously have no spare time or hobbies any more. However quiz me about film and TV and I have usually got a thing or two to say.

London, GB


React, ES6/7 JavaScript, Node, Angular, CSS/Sass, Rails, Redux, Pattern Libraries, Jest

What singles me out over and above your average developer is that I am great at communicating ideas between development and design/UX teams, and even better at faithfully communicating designs into cutting edge sites, apps and design systems.

I had the pleasure of working with Rob for 2 years when I headed up the digital team at Shelter, the national housing and homelessness charity. Rob is one of the rare breed of developers who is equally comfortable explaining tech to senior management as with writing code. His work was superb, with a flair for finding new and innovative solutions and a true design sensibility. He's also a brilliant mentor to junior devs and an all round thoroughly bearded chap.

I worked with Rob at Shelter for around a year; he was a top-shelf javascript and front-end developer, and helped refine our processes, while introducing new ones across the board (both development and QA side). Any team with Rob on board would be strengthened. Highly recommend him.
