We want to offer a warm welcome to the four newest members of the Citizen Ticket family, who've just joined our development team.
- Emilia Bromby, our new user experience designer with a Masters in human-computer interaction design.
- Christian Paone, who takes on a quality assurance role and has 15 years experience in similar roles.
- Mark Williams, who moves from an agency background in-house to a role as a senior full-stack developer.
- James Voong, who previously worked at the business intelligence firm Catalyst IT, will be joining the team as a PHP developer.
Our new members will be reporting to our chief technology officer Colin Palmer, who has emphasised what a huge milestone this is for the development team.
Colin comments; “We don’t see ourselves as just a ticketing provider for clients, we want to be a serious partner that can help improve their event experiences through our technological solutions.”
The coronavirus pandemic opened our eyes to new ways of working
Adapting to the challenges as venues closed their doors and things moved online proved to be pivotal for us in more ways than one.
... and new ways of hiring
We also found that WFH productivity levels were just as high, if not higher, than when everyone was in the office. This realisation meant that we were able to select our newest members from a global pool of talent, rather than just within our hubs of Edinburgh and London.
So, we are absolutely confident we have found the best people for the job.
We want to offer the warmest welcome to Emilia, Christian, Mark and James. We can't wait to see the innovations you spark.
