Our newest members of the Awen Tech Team - Seren, Jamie & Lara

 

Seren and Jamie join us as graduate software developers from Cardiff University, where they both completed their Computer Science degrees this summer. Lara is joining us part-way through her Computer Science degree at Cardiff University, undertaking her placement year at Awen as an Analyst/Developer.

Lara    is very outgoing and helps maintain the great atmosphere at Awen HQ. She is very passionate about being zero waste/plastic free and has already helped us to make changes to reduce our plastic waste. One of Lara's biggest achievements is cycling 900 miles from the south of France along the coast back to England! Lara is also a very keen gym goer - her aims for the next year include gaining an insight into the cyber security industry, and getting totally shredded ๐Ÿ’ช.

Jamie  honed skills in Parallel Computing and Forensics during their time at Cardiff. When not working on our Dot software, Jamie has a passion for video games, branching into the development scene recently through Game Jam competitions ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ. Jamie also has a love of languages and is studying Korean and French in their spare time.

With her passion for cyber-security, and looking to gain new skills and diversify her knowledge,  Seren    was keen to join our unique small company culture at Awen Collective. Her motivation is to develop leading-edge technologies to benefit people, organisations and customers to make their lives easier. Outside of work, Seren enjoys Zumba, travel, photography, walking in the Welsh hills and baking ๐Ÿง. The entire Awen team is highly supportive of Serenโ€™s baking skills, especially when her brownies make it into Awen HQ for a tasting!

We were lucky enough during the summer to also have  Volkan  join Team Awen as our Business Development & Marketing Manager. His extensive background in growing revenues using his sales and marketing skills will certainly supercharge our future plans at Awen. In his spare time, Volkan is a keen photographer, and kindly took many of the photos you see on this page! ๐Ÿ“ท

Whilst the influx of some brilliant new faces at Awen is a great reason to celebrate - we must also offer our congratulations and thanks to  Paige  and  Ollie . Both joined Awen in September 2018 and spent a fantastic year as Analyst/Developers for their placement year as part of their Computer Science degree course at Cardiff University. Weโ€™d like to thank them for all their great work over the last year - their input has made a huge impact on the company and their legacy will continue as they return to complete their degrees. We wish them all the best with their academic endeavours. ๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿป
