What will you be doing at Union St?

I’ve just started a new job working remotely as a Front End Developer (I build the parts of website you see and interact with) for the UN. Only a couple of days in so far, but will mostly be working on helping improve their websites and apps, as well as getting confused by which time zones my colleagues are in.

How did you get into this area of work?

I kind of fell into web development while in an admin job for the NHS years ago, but it’s worked out ok and I’ve been a web developer for several years now, working mostly for digital agencies in Sheffield.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I enjoy lots of aspects of web development, but mostly I like to see that what I’ve been working on actually has a useful purpose and is helping people, even if it’s in a small way.

What are you looking to get out of Union St?

A good co-working environment with friendly people (and without my cat trying to hit me in the face).
