Matt (front-end lead), shares some of his experiences from working at Virgin Holidays as a Web Developer.
With a big company comes big ideas, and to make them work you have to keep up.
A highly modular architecture making the best use of AngularJS (1.x) and Angular (2.x) and LESS frontends, a solid Continous Integration and Deployment system backed by Jenkins to serve a huge amount of customers on a daily basis.
The teams are organised around modules, and everyone adopts an Agile approach, mainly SCRUM, overarched by a more traditional, waterfall approach to suite the needs of the business.
Working as part of the Merchandising team, the main focus is on Search. As the main entry point to many visitors, it is important to get it right.
Later as a member of the Find team, the focus was on all aspects of Search and Content, as well as maintaining internal systems.
I worked alongside Matt for more than a year, what an experience! Matt is knowledgeable, passionate and a critical thinker . He lives and breathes tech on a daily basis , before work while at work and after work. He can get up to speed with simply anything and he enjoys playing with new things. He is an engineer, an architect, a developer, a lead and a collaborative team member. What makes Matt great along with the fact that he delivers with quality and innovative solutions? He is fun, a people catalyst and always brings a smile at work! You will enjoy him at work and after work! I am pretty sure and I hope we will work again soon!
