Introducing Joe Forshaw

Our newest team member is Joe Forshaw, who has joined us as a Software Engineer.

A graduate of the University of Manchester (all the best folks are), Joe joins us from an agency background where he’s worked on some pretty high profile projects, such as Noel Gallagher’s website and Now That’s What I Call Music’s streaming service, NOW+.

We’re primarily a Ruby and JavaScript shop, but we don’t restrict our hiring to those worlds and aim to attract the best people regardless of tech. We want to create a team that has a diverse range of experience, backgrounds and opinions. So, although Joe has done some Ruby before, his main work to date has been in PHP, and like Rob, he’s also a C# enthusiast and has a load of experience on native apps.

Since starting Joe’s enjoyed being able to properly get involved in some TDD/BDD, continuous delivery, agile and remote working — all things that are hard to do in agency and we’ve built into our practices from the start.

Welcome, Joe!
