In the second instalment of our new series, we’re catching up with Caroline Stickland, better known as Caz. Read on to learn more about our top-drawer designer and developer.
Tell us a bit about your role at Harris.
I design and build websites, which involves lots of different stages from start to finish. Finding out the main goal of an online application is the key – everything grows from there.
How would you describe the culture at Harris?
Relaxed and friendly. I’ve been here for over 10 years and the people I work with are like family.
What’s been your favourite project to work on?
It’s hard to pick one, but I’ve recently completed the new website for Arbordeck and that was a great project to work on. We had to turn it around quite quickly, which was challenging, but the hard work paid off.
How did you first get involved in coding?
I started off as a graphic designer but I was so intrigued by web design. I loved how instant it was – I could create something and it would be live to the world so quickly.
When did you know you wanted to be a coder/designer?
Once I started dabbling in coding I knew straight away it was what I wanted to do. There was no going back.
You’re quite active, what is your favourite form of exercise?
I love running. No gym required; just a decent pair of trainers and you’re off. I’m a bit of a geek so I like to track my speed and time and compare the data.
Name one artist you hope to see live this year?
I’m lucky enough to be going to Glastonbury so I’ll hopefully be seeing Disclosure while I’m there. I’ve wanted to see them live for a long time.
What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Glasto obviously, but also going to Ibiza with my family.
What is your ideal breakfast?
Bacon sandwich with lots of tomato sauce.
