How long have you worked at TAB?
I joined TAB in July 2021. Before TAB, I worked at an agency where our primary product was an all in one content management system (CMS), managing everything from product stock, ecommerce and warehouses down to basic websites where only content is needed. Prior to this, I was at De Montfort University where I graduated with a First in BSc Computer Science, achieving 92% in my dissertation.
What does your role at TAB involve?
My role at TAB involves almost anything and everything to do with technology including managing infrastructure and detecting any bottlenecks, helping the other software engineers, reviewing fixes and features submitted for completion, testing and discussing priorities with Mark, the technology director.
What’s the best thing about working at TAB?
Definitely the people! We have an excellent team that’s willing to educate you on different aspects of the business, even if it's not your department. The layout of the office is open plan, so it is super easy to collaborate and get answers quickly, due to most of the team being in the office.
What is your daily coffee intake?
Around two to three cups a day, saying it out load, maybe I need to cut down?
Who is your favourite band or artist?
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

What is your favourite restaurant?
Grounded kitchen, it's a Korean restaurant which do nourishment bowls with rice or noodles. So so good!
What is your favourite holiday destination?
Anywhere hot or with a lot of nature, like Spain or Portugal. I also love dune riding, so any desert!
