Liam Hawks

Full-stack JavaScript Developer

Duotone Headshot of Liam Hawks

I'm a developer with over 10 years of experience focused on building products via JavaScript using Gatsby, Next.js & React.

I'm based near Bristol, UK (UTC+0) but usually work remotely. I'm open to both contracts and full-time roles right now so feel free to get in touch.

It's been a varied journey for me. From my early days as a Flash Developer and some time where I ran kitchens as a chef. My love of figuring problems out and coding creatively has stayed constant!

Beelzebab Mobile Homepage


Beelzebab, a beloved and unique kitchen, wanted to help customers find restaurant info quickly and improve the experience of buying merch.

I built an accessible lightning fast site with great SEO and custom store that staff can update stock for easily.

Now existing and potential customers find what they need quickly and merch sales are kept on brand.

Stack used: Gatsby, Stripe & Firebase

Most inventory and organisation apps for professional kitchens are bloated with unused features, slow and clunky.

I developed a lean inventory tool for chefs managing small to medium kitchens.

It saves users time, money, makes shifts easier and helps their customers have a better experience.

Stack used: Next.js, FaunaDB (GraphQL), & Stripe

Act Detail/Information Page


Music festival and arts events need simple calendars for customers that will function well in adverse conditions.

I built a lightweight resilient PWA timetable for Goulash Disko music festival to help attendees find artists and plan their time.

Now guests at the festival, even in bad network conditions, can figure out where to head to for their best experience possible.

This project used my open source Gatsby Theme 'gatsby-theme-schedule'.

Stack used: Gatsby & GraphQL
