Employee spotlight: Lee Burgess


Hey I’m Lee, Full Stack Developer in the Solutions Engineering team at Blink! πŸ‘‹

Before joining Blink, I started my career in events and sales. My biggest role was at WFD in a start-up where we created events all over the globe in different industries such as digital publishing, growth hacking and innovation. I handled sponsorship and ongoing partnerships. πŸ€“

I moved into another events role before making the change to software engineering on a 3-month course, which is where I met Theo! I got invited to become a teaching associate on the course and was part of the staff for Fabien’s course.

One of the great things about SE is our day to day can be very varied! We focus our time on two key areas, one being integrations that can cover larger projects such as the ADP payslip and user-sync to WorkBuzz which is a smaller survey provider integration. πŸŽ‰

The second is working closely with customers to digitise their current processes and help identify pain points we can solve on Blink.

There are many things I love about Blink but the main one for me would be the culture. Everyone is very friendly and wants to help each other as much as possible.

I used to think that being at home was my favourite way to work but now the days I come into the office are my highlights. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό

We’re growing quickly and there are a lot of new faces, I need to get better at this but make sure to throw a message to new people you see on Blink or say hello to any new faces in the office! πŸš€
