Meet Ryan Buxton Junior Programmer
25th Jun 2018
Ryan Buxton joined the d3t team as a Junior Programmer on 11th June 2018. We asked Ryan to tell us a bit more about himself…
Tell us about your background and experience prior to d3t?
I’m a Staffordshire University graduate in BSc (Hons) in Computer Games Programming with a year-long internship as a Simulation Software Developer for Airbus Helicopters in Donauwörth, Germany.
d3t offered me the opportunity to work on many different projects in different areas of programming which would enable me to taste a bit of everything before deciding exactly where I’d like to specialise.
What was the recruitment process like?
Very straight forward, both interviews were relaxed and enjoyable. I had two interviews and got on really well with the team that interviewed me.
The code test was an enjoyable challenge which gave scope to demonstrate skills which I learned at uni, on placement and in my spare time.
Any interesting facts we should know?
I was a long-term member of the Army Cadets from 2008-2013. In July 2012, I participated in the International Four Days Marches of Nijmegen in Holland. Here alongside a squad, we marched 100 miles all over Nijmegen and the surrounding areas.
It was quite possibly one of the most challenging experiences of my life.
