31 October: Next Jump Tech Talk: Next Jump Engineering - our culture, business and how we engineer. Next Jump was founded in 1994 making print coupon books for college campuses and eventually for corporate employees in partnership with HR departments of Fortune 1,000 companies. WHAT we do as a company has evolved over the years, however we believe something much more important is WHY we exist. Join Joe to hear about Next Jump, its investment in its culture and employees, and Joe’s own personal growth story. Joe will also be discussing the technology we use at Next Jump, our approach to development and how you can apply principles into your own growth to becoming a better engineer. Joe joined Next Jump in 2010 as a software engineer after studying Computer Science. He is currently leading the Next Jump’s UK engineering team, working on the travel e-commerce engine and building iOS and Android apps to impact and improve workplace culture. *in 1.02 Malet Place Engineering Building*
