It sometimes feels as though Raymond can turn his hand to anything, and at a moment’s notice. If a new programming language needs to be learnt, Raymond will set his mind to it. And if it’s an old piece of software that needs to be brought back to life, Raymond will figure it out, give it a spring clean, and put it back together again working twice as well as before!
Raymond believes passionately that software should be easy to use and totally reliable: “Software should be a tool that makes your life better, in the background, rather than a focus or a distraction”. When developing a new piece of software Raymond likes to see it through to the very end, he works closely with our operations team to ensure the programmes he builds are easy to implement and maintain.
With his thoroughness and attention to detail, it’s not surprising that he’s worked on so many high-stakes projects for the University in the past. What makes Raymond one of our most valuable team members, though, is his ability to put aside ‘tech speak’ and talk about what people want in plain English. He’s now planning to build on this skill and spend more time designing how the software should work, rather than fixing it when it’s broken!
