Hey, I’m Alexandra but mostly known as Alex. I joined Signify in October 2016, this is my first recruitment role and I can honestly say that I love it! After studying marketing and working in retail for a long period of time, I’m able to transfer many of my skills over to help build relationships with clients and candidates and be able to pick up market knowledge in order to help me be a specialist within Scala and Functional Programming.
I love the journey that I’ve been on through recruitment and I have proven to myself that I can put my mind to something if I believe in myself. I’m very proud of the achievements within my first full year of recruitment and I’m so excited to see what the future holds.
I’ve been able to meet new engineers and companies at some of the biggest Scala conferences including Scala Days in Copenhagen and Scala World in the Peak District. And with this being a new year, I’m looking forward to attending more conferences in new locations!
Outside of recruitment, my life revolves around family, friends, Netflix and shopping/online shopping, sometimes both at the same time, thank you to all the developers that have created the apps that allow me to do this on the go. I have a big family so you’ll usually find me at home eating home cooked family meals. I’m lucky to have found a job that includes travelling as this something I really enjoy, this allows me to experience different cultures and foods which I love.
I work on the permanent team with a main focus on London and USA, so please get in touch if you’d like to find out how Signify can help you.
