As 2021 rolled around, it’s fair to say that many of us are hoping that 2020 – and all its MANY challenges – will soon be consigned to (a significant part of) history. There is still a way to go, for sure, but we are certainly in a better place now than we were 12 months ago. For us, the year kicked off on a positive note when we welcomed Peter to join the Oval team of developers. It isn’t easy joining a new organisation when it’s not even possible to sit in the same room as your cohorts, but Peter has done an awesome job at getting stuck in, and he’s already proving to be a valuable addition.
Peter’s portfolio includes a wide range of projects – both small and large – working across an enviable number of technologies. We’re putting him through something of a baptism of fire, getting involved in two of our biggest pieces of development. With a passion for coding and learning about new technologies, Peter has already gleaned a lot about good coding practice from his new team mates, and is eager for that to continue.
In addition, Peter is an avid musician, playing the guitar and recording acoustic covers in his downtime. Perhaps we are yet one step closer to forming the Oval band that so often gets mentioned…!!
In the world of development, you need a range of different people and roles, to ensure everything goes to plan. All of our projects are guided and nurtured by a fastiduous project manager – someone who sees the whole picture, can assign priorities, and make snappy decisions to ensure efforts are kept efficient (both in terms of time and budget).
Luckily, we’ve managed to land a brilliant addition to our team who will be helping us do exactly these things, in the form of Simone, our new Junior Project Manager.
With a background in both account and project management, coupled with boundless enthusiasm, we’re confident that she’s going to make a positive impact on both our current and future endeavours. In Simone’s own words, she’s already ‘genuinely loving every second’ 🙂
We’re delighted to welcome you, Simone!
