As a Software Engineer I never had the intention of working with geographic data, but as soon as I did I was hooked. I started my career at OS as a Research Scientist, looking at the latest and greatest technologies for creating and analysing data. We were one of the first to fully embrace Linked Data and it was great to work in such an innovative and exciting atmosphere.
I really started to get into geographic data and most of my subsequent roles at OS have been helping to create and shape our data and products. I now lead the Product Development team which prototypes our newest products, and I get to work with some of the most passionate people who are really crazy about maps. I didn’t realise that there are so many different ways that you can think about a building!
As well as being crazy about maps there are also a lot of us that are mad about running and like nothing better than getting out at lunchtime to do some hill reps or the monthly social run, and it’s just another great aspect of working here at OS. When you put that all together with Friday morning breakfast it really is a great place to work.
