In the third of Spirable’s ‘Meet the Team’ series we welcome James! In this series we find out from the team what makes them tick, what led them to Spirable and why it’s a brilliant place to work!

James joined our cutting-edge Tech Team this summer as a DevOps Engineer.

Where are you originally from?

I was originally born in the West Midlands before moving to Shropshire (Bridgnorth) for the majority of my childhood.

Tell us a bit about your background.

I attended school at Old Swinford Hospital in Stourbridge before moving to Aberystwyth to study Computer Science.

What led you to Spirable?

As I began my career search I was contacted by a technology recruiter who was looking to fill a role within Spirable. Drawn to the fast paced dynamics of a startup and the opportunity to really contribute to the innovative product we are making here at Spirable were the main reasons I chose to apply.

What do you like most about your job?

The opportunity to constantly innovate and learn within such a cohesive team is the aspect I most enjoy about working at Spirable.

What’s the most valuable thing you’ve taken away from working here so far?

So far the ability to adapt has struck me as the most important asset needed within the startup world.

If you had to pick a mascot for Spirable what would it be?

The mascot I would choose for Spirable would have to be a chameleon, due to the fact they are able to adapt to their environment much like our product is able to adapt video content based on changing data sources.

What are your passions outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy travelling to new places and playing/watching rugby with friends.

What or who inspires you and why?

My parents are a big inspiration to me, both having spent the majority of their lives leading a company.
