Why do you like working for IP?

At IP we follow a business solution mindset first, not a code-first mindset. Top to bottom, IP also believes in the fundamentals of a microservices architecture approach (with roots in service-oriented architecture), and uses the latest cutting edge technologies and approaches to solve business problems. These approaches allow us to deliver great value to our clients and I love it when our clients value and appreciate our solutions to their challenges.

Most interesting project?

The current project I’m working on because we use great new approaches & patterns, new technologies and solve interesting new business challenges. Historically, a few will be remembered forever – when I built a churn prediction model for a international mobile telecommunications company, when I upgraded the company’s online site and as a result it became the busiest website on the continent, when I helped productionise an ambulance patient data capture mobile application, and when I built a B2B ordering & invoicing integration that carried billions in sales.
