I graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Music. It’s not the usual degree that you would associate with a Software Developer but I’ve always been a bit of a technology geek!
The first thing that enticed me to apply to TPP was the opportunity to make a genuine difference to people’s lives, and since joining the company in January 2016, I haven’t been disappointed. The work is incredibly challenging and really varied – I’ve learnt loads about software development in the time that I’ve been here. I feel that I’ve already made a significant contribution to the company, that my work is valuable and that my time really is well spent.
I live in a flat about 15 minutes from the office in Horsforth. The town itself is very beautiful, and Leeds city centre is about 20 minutes away by car or train, so it really is the best of both worlds – a vibrant city and rolling country hills are both on my doorstep! I used to imagine myself having a future career in the London area, but in the short time I’ve lived up here, I’ve decided that I never want to leave Leeds.
