A new year, another new recruit! Meet, Tom! πŸ‘‹πŸ₯³

By Adapt Digital

3rd January 2023

Adapt has been fortunate to continue its growth path over the past six months, and, as a result, we have needed to bring another pair of technically competent hands on board. So please join us in welcoming Tom to the Adapt team! Tom joins us as a developer with full-stack capabilities in the Javascript ecosystem, which he will apply to a select few of our closest client relationships.

Get to know a little about Tom through his answers to the following icebreaker questions, and join us in giving him a warm welcome to the team! πŸ‘‹

What bucket list item do you most want to check off in the next six months?

Over the next few months I think one of the more achievable bucket list items I have is to start my own racing team, and getting the licences in place is a great place to begin.

What is one thing we would never guess about you?

I suppose the most unexpected aspect would be that I am a (soon to be) father of 2. I think it throws people off given my β€œYouthfulness”.

If you could go to Mars, would you? Why or why not?

If the opportunity ever arose for me to go to mars ofcourse i would take it, who wouldn’t want to experience the sci-fi version of the oregon trail?

What is the best piece of advice you have ever gotten at work?

It’s worth doing something thoroughly once , rather than poorly multiple times. and i have believed it to be true,it saves time and stress at a later date, even if it takes longer to complete.

Would you rather be able to read minds or be able to see the future? Why?

I think the ability to read minds would be a more powerful tool, you can predict a person’s next move or have insight in how they feel about a specific topic. I wouldn’t want to see the future, you would never really be living in that moment, you would be constantly looking at the next.

Three famous people to live on a deserted island with, who are you bringing and why?

Assuming they all have to be people who are currently alive (and i need to survive and not just enjoy a quiet beach holiday) i would bring Bear Grylls, Ant Middleton and probably Robert Irwin. I feel like the chances of survival are higher bringing these guys than a bunch of comedians.

What fascinates you about technology?

To this day I am always impressed by how small computer chips are, they can be less than 1 square inch and yet contain millions of transistors. Computers are going to do nothing but continue to be more complex, smaller, lighter and faster. I am proud to be a small part in the continuation of the cycle for better technology.

What are you most excited about with your new role at Adapt?

I think what’s most exciting about Adapt is the opportunity to grow and develop my skills, working alongside multiple clients and hopefully excelling expectations.
