1. Tell us a bit about yourself

Originally from Dublin, moved to Manchester 8 months ago after living in London for 5 years. I'm a software developer and a mother of 2 little boys (3 and 1). I studied computer science at UCD in Dublin, finished my BSc in 2009 and MSc in 2010, with a thesis focusing on a data science topic. I've been working in development roles since 2012, I started with a small scientific software start-up in Dublin (Creme), then worked in Inmarsat in London for 5 years before moving here.

2. What's the best part about working here?

Definitely the people! The team are great, everyone is really helpful and our collective nerdiness is indulged. We have put together a team that works really well together and has a good understanding of how to get the best out of what we have. We do definitely have fun at work, but we work hard too.

3. Things you like about your role?

I enjoy getting to work on a relatively large Python project with relatively varied pieces of work involved. One thing I definitely like about working in a smaller company is that my input across the system is valued - I'm not just stuck in one tiny area but get to do a bit of everything.

4. Out of work interests?

I love to run - I'm running the Manchester and London marathons in April and am a regular runner and volunteer at the various south Manchester parkruns. It gives me a mental break after a busy day and puts a smile on my face! I also love to cook, I love to try new recipes at home and to try and veggie'ify the classics. I'm also a bit of a craft beer nerd.

5. One tip for new peeps

Be enthusiastic, open and willing to learn - the best way to get used to any new system is to get your hands dirty with it!
