Our team and our culture are fundamental to who we are as a business. This month we share further details on Joe Morgan, including some of the great activities he's been involved in outside of Delio.
‘I graduated from the University of Reading in 2017 with a first class honours in Computer Science, as well as being awarded the Sullivan Prize for the highest final year project mark after identifying a potential gap in the architectural CAD market. After university, I spent 9 months co-developing a modified version of the software I had written at university, after securing external funding for the project.
Towards the end of 2018, I joined a Leadership programme run by a charity called Uprising, which aims to give people the tools to transform their communities for the better. Since joining the programme I’ve been given numerous opportunities to raise awareness for mental health in young people, giving talks at the Welsh Audit Office, and helping to develop a campaign aiming to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness called ‘How You Doing?’. I’ve also been a part of the Welsh Government Youth Board since the start of 2019, helping to design a whole school approach to emotional well-being and mental health at schools throughout Wales.
I joined Delio as a full stack developer in the summer of 2018, and quickly discovered that the FinTech industry is very different from the architecture industry! I’ve worked on some very exciting and challenging projects during my time here, from helping to entirely redesign the platforms user interface, to working on the new custom key performance indicators functionality. I’ve also been very fortunate to spend some time with Delio visiting local primary schools, teaching the pupils about software development. Every day at Delio is different and challenging, it really is a great place to work.’
