Stephen

Back End Developer

What made you want to work for Fifteen?
Sam Doyle was my main reason for joining Fifteen. Sam has been my mentor for many years and taught me a lot of valuable skills. And when the opportunity came to to work for such a prestigious, award-winning company under Sam’s rule… well only a fool would turn it down.

Why did you become a Backend Developer and what are the most enjoyable aspects of the job?
I have always been very interested in technology and how it works, and what better way to understand it than the build the software itself. The most enjoyable aspects are building interesting and complex applications – the more complex, the bigger the sense of achievement at the end.

What’s the most unusual fact about yourself that not a lot of people know?
I once slipped and fell onto a frozen pea and got it lodged in the back of my skull.

Unless you’re in my bedroom.
