A bit about Marcus…

So what does your job actually involve? Tell us all about it!

Being development manager is a mix of technical discussions, organisation and coming up with ideas. I get to work with a bunch of talented developers and help manage their work loads and monitor all work through the team from specification to delivery onto the live sites. Everyday is different and full of problems to solve.

What's the most unique part of your role at The Student Room?

I get to work with all the teams in the company, as the only development team we help everyone meet their needs.

What do you find most exciting about working in the student & youth market?

At the Student Room we are really trying hard to evolve quickly, design and deliver using lean principles. This means what you build people use almost instantly!

If you could give your student self one piece of advice what would it be?

Enjoy the journey, don't worry about the destination you'll keep wanting to keep travelling the older you get.
