Team Member Spotlight - Martin

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 Martin, I'm Irish and one of the front-end developers at edozo. I have been here since 2017 and am still loving life at edozo. With the rest of the front-end team I marry-up the design vision (interface and experience), business needs and backend infrastructure to provide the interface and experience users eventually see in their browsers and ultimately endeavour to provide tools that make their jobs easier. 
What do you like about edozo?

I'm going to say two things here. First and foremost is the team, in short they are all great to work with. A group of individuals all highly skilled in their fields, yet all so humble and who come together to become a great team. It doesn't matter what issue you are having (or silly question you are asking 😅), there is always somebody who will put up their hand to help, regardless of their own tasks. This leads me onto my second point, the drive within the business. From top to bottom everyone is so determined to succeed, meaning we can all work together with a singular purpose and put what is best for the business and our users first. 

How do you spend your weekends?

Myself and my fiancée Petra recently moved outside of the city and spend a fair amount of our time taking long walks in the forest with our dog Molly. I find the experience of being outside and getting lost in nature so grounding. Especially as I spend my work days at a computer screen I think it is super important to strike a balance and find a pass time that is a bit more active. Tip, Swinley forest is a great place to just get away from the world. 

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

Talisker - a peat smoked scotch. Growing up we had a turf/peat fire at home. When I moved to Australia in my early twenties I was introduced to Talisker, and even sitting in the baking heat of an Australian summer, just closing my eyes and breathing in the peat smoked smell, all the memories and warmth of home came flowing back.  

If you were the only human left on Earth, what would you do? 

Would I know I was the only human on earth? If not I'd probably be looking for another human. If I knew I was the only human left, I'd definitely have a pet for companionship and just spend my days doing things that I enjoy. Provided I wasn't dodging whatever it was that wiped everyone else out. 

What’s the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten and where was that? 

Possibly not the weirdest you will ever hear but once I had a Crocodile curry. We were in Northern Queensland going to the Great Barrier Reef and other stuff tourists do when visiting Australia. One day we took a cable car up over a mountain, across the rainforest and into a little town called Kuranda. I've also had camel sausages which were a little strange.

What’s one thing you’re learning now, and why is it important? 

My partner Petra has recently taken up drawing, seeing the positive effect that such a calming pastime has on her and remembering how much I used to love drawing and art when I was young - I am starting to learn that again. There are many reasons this is important to me; I think at heart I am a creative person and it is important that I find an outlet for that, there are also many mental benefits that can come from it - almost like a form of meditation.
