Meet Ad: Lead Front End Developer at Student Beans
For the latest in our Meet The Team series, we chat to Ad (pictured left) from our engineering department. Based in our Birmingham office, he heads up the team of developers responsible for Student Beans' front end, making sure our student users have a seamless experience.
Here's what he had to say about life at SB and the projects he's most excited about...
What has been the highlight of your time at Student Beans so far?
I'm really proud of the quality of our engineers. We only hire the best but it has been a joy to see our engineers get even better.
What’s your top tip for people interested in working in engineering?
Good engineers are those who are excited by problems. Start a personal project (not a tutorial) and find some problems to solve.
What are you most looking forward to at work in 2018?
Modernising our client facing sites to use React, Relay and GraphQL.
What do you think sets Student Beans apart from other companies in the sector?
The whole company focuses on quality and care; from engineering to sales to account management. We all take great pride in how we deliver quality products to our clients and users.
What’s the no.1 thing that makes you stay at Student Beans?
Innovation - we use a very modern tech stack to allow us to deliver our business goals. As a professional nerd, this makes me excited to come to work.
