Success Story of the Moment

The Newtyne Academy kickstarted my adventure

What is your current role?

My career’s been quite the adventure. I had to wear different hats and fell head over heels for all things software. Presently, I am a Lead Software Engineer in one of the technology labs at Lloyds Banking Group, navigating the tech world with a bunch of talented individuals. It’s a mix of leadership and getting my hands dirty with code.

Working in the banking world is a journey. Did you know there’s an online PIN and an offline one for your card? There are so many quirky complexities. But that’s the fun part – finding creative solutions, helping the team, and weaving together beautiful code and architectures.

Every day is a new challenge, and that’s what keeps it exciting. Plus, there’s this endless potential for growth, both for me and my team.
