In this blog series, we will introduce you to our team. Sebastian Thomas is a developer for Ignition Wealth.
In recent years, he worked as a Junior Web Developer for AdviceConnect before the business was acquired by Ignition Wealth. Before that, he worked for Quick and Professional Websites as a Web Developer, creating websites for local businesses using paid templates – a business he started.
We asked him eight questions about his work at Ignition Wealth.
1. Why did you make the decision to work for Ignition Wealth?
I was originally a part of the company Advice Connect when it was acquired by Ignition Wealth. I stayed on to continue improving the front-end of our advice web platform.
2. What are some of your career highlights/key achievements?
Being responsible for building the initial version of Ignition Wealth’s front-end Single Page Application was a big learning period for me, as I had to really study the requirements of Ignition Wealth’s platform, and possible solutions.
3. What are you working on right now?
The front-end team is getting ready to expand and so we are hardening up some of our processes and design systems to enable quicker adoption of new developers.
4. What do you enjoy about working at Ignition Wealth?
I have great people to work with.
5. What are you looking forward to in 2018?
I am about to become an uncle for the first time, which is exciting. And we have some promising client projects coming up, that are really going to test the systems we have been working to strengthen.
6. What is your favourite piece of tech?
I don’t know how I would survive summer without an air-conditioner.
7. Any book suggestions?
8. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Exercise is the best way to clear the mind.
