Andrew has recently joined WebBox as a Digital Project Manager. Today we caught up with him to find out more…
Where have you worked previously?
I worked for Cardiff for a digital startup called About the Funeral. It is a comparison engine for comparing funeral providers and prepaid funeral plans. Prior to that; I project managed another startup called Letsgodoo; a things-to-do marketplace and SaaS solution.
What do you enjoy about working in the tech sector?
I like that everything is always advancing and changing and there is no limit really to how technology can be used to improving real-world solutions.
I like managing projects and ensuring that the dreams and aspirations of others are realised to the highest standard. Ensuring smile all round on delivery.
How did you become a Digital Project Manager?
To a certain extent, I fell into it really. In my early twenties, I was organising C-Suite corporate events and a friend of mine started the Letsgodoo project and want to see if I was up for the journey. I took the project on and didn’t look back.
How do you keep your knowledge/skills up to date?
I watch YouTube content, read industry articles and also subscribe to the blog and podcasts of the digital project manager blog site. I also like to learn from the professionals around me. It’s amazing what you can learn by asking the right questions over a cup of tea!
Do you have any hobbies/how do you relax?
I have two young children which means hobbies of the past have taken a back seat. When I have a chance I like going to the gym and watching a variety of sport but more often than not my spare time revolves around taking the kids to the local park or going out on day trips.
I was looking for an opportunity to work in a fast paced and forward thinking environment, work closely with developers to deliver bespoke digital solutions.
WebBox ticked the box… excuse the pun.
