Meet Sara Graves_

Software Engineer at Blue Frontier

Sara joined the .NET team at Blue Frontier in 2019. She has a background in computer science and business, having studied these disciplines while at university in Mannheim, Germany.

Sara has experience working in software development for fast-paced companies, including a cruise travel agent and employee benefits agency. As a result, Sara is a skilled problem-solver, with the meticulous attention to detail and depth of software and programming knowledge required to meet the high standards of our .NET development team.

Sara has made quite an impression at Blue Frontier as her positive attitude and confidence not only reflect in her work but in her relationships with colleagues and clients. She is an excellent team player and is an asset to the .NET team.

What are your favourite things about Blue Frontier?

A highlight of working at Blue Frontier is that my colleagues are smart, kind and funny, and always eager to help.

I have heard encouraging things about the potential for development and growth within the business, as well as being able to try out different roles.

What does your Blue Frontier role involve?

My day-to-day work as a .NET developer at Blue Frontier includes communicating with clients and stakeholders to analyse their needs and understand exactly what the software requirements are. I also plan and write code to a high standard, and test code either manually or by writing automated tests. I also participate in pair programming, collaborating with team members on projects and reviewing each other’s work to develop higher-quality code and learn from one another.

What would your dream project be?

My dream project would be to work as a full-stack developer for a client driving positive social change or innovative environmental solutions. Preferably, this would be a greenfield project with plenty of resources to build the highest standard of solutions.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love to host dinner parties for my family and friends, I enjoy discovering interesting international cuisines, planning trips and travelling, quality time in my vegetable garden, and like to push my limits in the gym or, recently, playing football with the Blue Frontier 5-a-side team.
