The Apptaura family is growing! We’ve added two new, brilliant team members to our awesome squad thanks to the Kickstart Scheme.
Chloe is joining our commercial team, with a particular focus on Marketing, hopping into the role of Junior Marketing Executive. A born and bred Basingstoker, Chloe is balancing her work with us at Apptaura with an Open University degree in Business Management and Marketing. Chloe started taking Taekwondo lessons when she was just six years old. She’s now a third-degree blackbelt and instructor. Which is a little bit scary!
Niall is joining our technical team as a Mobile App QA Tester. He’s already had an impressive impact on the development team, formalising the testing structures and owning the new testing processes. Niall recently completed a BTEC in IT and is currently taking an OU course in workplace communication. He’s replaced Thom as the tallest member of the Apptaura team.
Thom and Tom (our CEO and CTO) were both absolutely blown away by the enthusiasm both the Kickstart Scheme candidates showed in their interviews… and they are already building up an impressive list of tasks and responsibilities.
As lockdown restrictions have eased we’ve finally been able to get the whole Apptaura team together and introduce them to our new Kickstart Scheme legends. We had a great planning session outlining our aims for the rest of the year, caught up on all the office gossip that had been on hold for six months and had some pizza. Ok. A lot of pizza.
Of course with a martial arts expert joining the team we couldn’t not ask for a demo. Kickstarting the kickstart placement with a kick!
