What excites you about tech at William Hill?
There are many roles and opportunities here, so people won’t be limited, bored or tired. The agile transformation has started to make people from different teams really interact together in a far better way. I find my team experience compliments my own and I regularly learn from them.
Which projects are you most proud of that you’ve worked on here?
Sitebase Project - worked as development lead for 1 year and a half.
How do you go one better every day?
I constantly question whether what I’m doing will deliver the biggest value - according to customers and the company’s expectations. Moreover, I try to use the help from other people, and share best practice and anything that could be relevant for them.
Can you tell us a bit about your career story?
I’ve worked in IT for about 10 years, always aiming to conciliate engineering with scientific thinking. I chose to work both in front and back end, both in hands-on and leadership positions, as I believe seeing “the big picture” helps us to spot effective actions. The recent work in Sitebase was a great opportunity, where we delivered core components and patterns to be reused by other projects. It aligns the front-end technology among William Hill projects and developers. Great team to work with, technical challenges that made us grow, and dealing with different customer teams, understanding their reality.
