Name: Bradley Elliot
Role: Junior Developer
Before Cutover, I worked for GE Oil & Gas as a Business Intelligence Intern on a large-scale ERP program. This role gave me a great insight into the benefits Cutover could bring to large-scale critical events. I also have experience in various customer service roles, which have prepared me well for understanding the needs of our clients and the importance of putting them first in our development of the Cutover tool.
How did you get involved with Cutover?
I attended the Silicon Milkroundabout job fair just before graduating from university and met some of the team while browsing the employer stands. After a chat with CTO Kieran and CPO Marcus about the product and the role they were recruiting for, I was invited to an interview and got the job!
What does your typical day involve?
I have a varied role, but a typical day for me involves running front-end testing tools, such as Protractor, developing Twilio communication applications for our customer support line, working on developing the main product and writing technical tests.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
Coming from university into the working world was a big step; I think a lot of graduates find the jump from university life to a real working life a shock. Having to adapt to the change in environment was a bit of a challenge but I feel I have settled in nicely to my role. I’m constantly developing my skills and have learned a lot already from the great team I have around me.
What are your main priorities right now?
As I’m still fairly new, my main priorities are to continually increase my technical knowledge and use my programming skills to regularly contribute to the success of the company. We’re growing and it’s great to be a part of that.
