I'm part of the product development team here at GradeMaker. As a Web Developer, I work in the Bristol office which has a great environment suited for developing the product. I really enjoy working within the team, we all support each other and there is a high emphasis on sharing knowledge and learning new technologies. Having the freedom to choose the way I work and how I work whilst working on a product that has such a big impact on other people and society is important to me and working at GradeMaker has delivered on all those points.
