Websphere Developer, UK - Watford
I am a Developer here at Salmon and my role involves design, architect, back-end development, helping the team with any technical queries, team work assignments, supporting the deployment of platforms or sites to live and defect triage.
What initially attracted me to Salmon is being able to use my skill set. I have extensive experience in IBM WebSphere Commerce and Salmon does a lot of end-to-end work for WCS websites. I also really like Watford as a place to live as it is far from the hustle and bustle of London but still near enough that you can visit at any time. At Salmon I get a real buzz from the work/life balance that the company offers. It really is a drastic change from my previous job. Other than programmatic commerce I think the next big thing in digital is definitely Augmented Reality. In ecommerce, augmented reality empowers the user’s imagination and helps them to see the products they are purchasing in a different perspective.
Analytics is both a boon and a curse in 21st-century. Managing analytics based on legalities is a big challenge now.
If I could have a super-power it would be to be able to go without any sleep!
