Team Member Spotlight - Mike

We are taking you behind the scenes of edozo and introducing our team members, some might sound familiar to you and some others not, but they are all equally important and doing a phenomenal job. Let's get to know the heroes behind edozo.



Who are you?


Hey, I’m Mike, one of the back-end developers here at edozo. I help to look after all the "behind the scenes" applications that keep the edozo platform running. No two days are the same - I could be coding new features, refining the latest ideas, testing the applications, tracking down bugs, or managing deployments.

What do you like about edozo?

I like how fast we can get a change to one of our applications into the hands of our customers – sometimes within the same day! It is great to be able to deliver value to our customers without them having to wait months for it. I also love being able to work with such a smart and talented team of people.


How do you spend your weekends?


I like to start my weekend off by doing parkrun on a Saturday morning (a free, weekly timed 5K run), which I would recommend to anyone! Then I could be doing anything from going to visit my family, seeing friends for food or drink, or visiting a local farm or playground with my son. I’m a Christian, so on a Sunday, you will probably find me attending or volunteering at my local church.


What’s your favourite way to unwind after a busy day?


Working from home means that I don’t have a commute, so I get to spend some time with my 2 year-old son after a busy day at work. We will probably be building a train set or the tallest Lego tower ever! Then it is the normal bedtime routine, and if my wife and I aren’t too tired we’ll probably spend the rest of the evening bingeing on a Netflix series.


Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?


I can play the piano to grade 7. I attempted grade 8 but rushed it and failed before moving away to university. I hope to retake it again someday if I can find the time!


If you could choose a superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?


It would have to be something to do with sleep... A superpower that removed my need for sleep, or a superpower that enabled me to get stuff done whilst sleeping! We’re expecting baby number 2 in January, so hopefully I’ll get this superpower before then.
