Dr James Alexander Lee

Hey, I’m a senior front-end engineer
with a PhD in mental health tech.

Portrait of James

There’s value in both beautiful code and beautiful design.

I thrive when working with developers, designers, architects and product owners to engineer fantastic solutions to complex problems that excel in form and function.

I’m passionate about React, UI design, user experience and duck tikka masala.

I’m currently employed at Netcraft to unify their design system, UI, UX and front-end tech stack.

My PhD research explored the use of technology to track and influence emotional well-being.

Featured Work

Cell Industries


I have a multi-disciplinary background across tech, design and psychology. I collaborate closely with developers, designers and product to build beautiful and intuitive user experiences.

As an accessibility advocate, I care about ensuring that content is accessible to everyone. I'm experienced with WCAG standards and I'm keen to consult with companies who strive for inclusivity.

I work with product teams to create design guidelines, tokens and component libraries, improving efficiency for developers to create UIs within the boundaries of the design system.


James is a great developer and mentor with a lot of experience. He's responsive, talented, responsible, and always ready to help.

I believe that he will strengthen any team and I would be glad to work with him again on other projects.

— Eugene Perekopskyi, Software Engineer

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with James. He's hard working, very talented, and always looking for solutions to problems with a smile.

I'd hire him again in an instant for a lead developer role, and would consider him for many other roles too!

— Jim Woods, CEO

James is one of the best among all people I have ever worked with, extremely brilliant, smart, and creative. Not only his technical skills are exceptional but he has great interpersonal and leadership skills.

He would be an asset to any company or team, I can't think of anyone I'd recommend more highly.

— Nishita Morjaria, Customer Success
