Lead Developer, Newcastle upon Tyne
I had previously been at Durham University for a number of years after studying there for a Software Engineering degree, then a PhD in Software Visualisation and finally working as a Teaching Associate in the Computer Science department.
While at Durham I’d heard about a new company being set up, and after an initial interview with Gary Scott and upon hearing about his plans, I became very interested. What attracted me was the focus on strong technical solutions, varied projects and close links with clients. Thankfully my interview was successful and I joined Scott Logic in October 2005. Since then I’ve seen the company go from strength to strength, but it has always maintained its core focus of delivering quality solutions to meet its clients’ needs.
I’ve worked on a variety of projects during my time at Scott Logic, from Rich Internet Applications to back-end servers, using a number of different technologies. I’ve always enjoyed the challenges and since leaving university I’ve been able to gain a huge amount of knowledge and experience from the company and its developers.
I am currently responsible for a team working on a Fixed Income web portal. This involves a range of activities, from developing web applications to working on the infrastructure that supports the site. I really enjoy the development and problem solving focus and have always found the company a very friendly and positive environment to work in.
