What are your favourite things about Blue Frontier?

I am very interested in the company culture, the great atmosphere and how sustainability is addressed here. Blue Frontier also offers a great range of opportunities to help inspire and cultivate your inner virtuoso on a day-by-day basis. The teams at Blue Frontier are truly exceptional.

What does your Blue Frontier role involve?

I am involved within the early stages of development, and up throughout the maintenance and support of a website with a specialisation within the WordPress ecosystem. This may include asking bigger questions such as whether a plugin or extension should be used against another, to the ideal method for optimising speed, with an emphasis on SEO, user experience, and futureproofing.

What would your dream project be?

My dream project would be anything that serves the world and makes it a better place. It can be as grand as being tasked to jump into a black hole and analyse it without getting spaghettified, or as simple as volunteering within a community project to make the next generation have a happier way of living.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

You’ll find me catching up with friends and family usually outdoors, or experimenting with life hacks. I also like working out or doing something that is very daring, exciting, or challenging, to keep one foot out of my comfort zone and build up a super resilient mind.
