It’s time for Software Engineer Sean, to step up to the plate in our next ‘60 seconds with…’ Here’s what he likes most about working at Rotaready, why Bali is his dream holiday destination and what you’ll find him singing at karaoke. 

What did you do before working at Rotaready?

Before working for Rotaready I was on the Deutsche Bank graduate scheme where I worked as a Software Engineer. I worked on automating processes and data integrity.

What do you like most about your job?

There’s so much I love about Rotaready, as soon as I joined I was welcomed to the family with open arms. The support you get from everyone is amazing and everyone always has time for you. As well as constantly being involved in projects where I’m learning something new everyday.

If you weren’t working in the Development team which role would you take on?

I was lucky enough to join maestro Steve at a client meeting where he demo’d our product. I wouldn’t say I’d do a good job but to learn how to talk to clients like him would be grand!

What’s your dream holiday destination?

I’ve been fortunate to have travelled a lot but still top of my list is Bali. Every year I see instagram stories from my mates out there and it makes me keen to go and explore!

What’s your favourite meal?

A good medium rare steak with chips. Nothing can beat it.

What are you most likely to be found doing at the weekend?

On the weekends I’m more than likely playing sports, whether it’s for my local rugby team or the Sunday league football team that I manage with University mates!

What would you sing at Karaoke night?

With you – Chris Brown. Yes I think I can hit the high notes after a few drinks… not really.

If you could have one superpower what would it be?

I would love to be able to heal injuries with my hands. The amount of hamstrings I’ve popped in my time. Imagine if you pull your hamstring playing football, quickly place your hands over it and you’re as good as new. Amazing!

What’s your best joke?

I was walking past someone in the street when they threw a piece of cheese at me. I shouted at them ‘Hey! That’s not mature!’
