Sandra, Clair & Mark Join Our PHP Development Team!

Yet again we have another fantastic announcement. The past few weeks have been continuously exciting at Magma Digital, with our recent announcement of our move to Manchester to facilitate our expansion. We would now like to officially introduce Sandra, Mark and Clair; our tremendous new PHP software engineers.

Sandra, a dutch national graduated with an HND in computing in 2009, she has more than 5 years commercial PHP5 experience. During her career, Sandra has worked on projects for clients such as The Co-operative, Aviva, Carole Nash and Superdrug.

Within her flourishing portfolio, Sandra has worked with various software such as: ASP.NET, Apache, Windows Server, PHP, MySQL, Flash, XML, (X)HTML, HTML, CSS, jQuery and JavaScript. Integrating these into her skill set, she has created and managed accessible, interactive and outstanding online applications. When not working, Sandra loves to attend hackathon’s and technical conferences. In the near future, she will be traveling nearly 1000 miles to go to a hacker camp. However, Sandra admits that she can never turn down a game of bowling!

Mark graduated from Teeside University with a degree in Computing in 2012. Since then he has worked for market leading organisations within the North East such as Visualsoft, Colewood and Calm Digital. Marks passion for being a software engineer emanates from his eagerness to utilise, learn and develop new technologies and trends. Although his singing voice may not match up to his software engineering skills, Mark will be the first to jump on the microphone at karaoke! His enthusiasm and experience makes him a fantastic addition to the Magma Digital team.

Last but not least we would like to introduce you to Clair our newest senior software engineer. Graduating with a degree in BSc Hons Combined Computer Science from Lancaster University in 2007, she has continued to successfully prosper professionally and has 9 years commercial experience as a software developer.

Clair is a certified Zend PHP engineer, she is also a certified Scrum master and a qualified ISTQB advanced test manager. Her previous employment proves to be as impressive as her accreditation, working for companies such as BBC, IGT and Leopard software. Clair’s previous experience has amplified her skills throughout PHP5, test driven development, cross-browser/cross-platform responsive HTML and CSS, javascript, MySQL and NoSQL databases, agile development and many more. When not working Clair loves to go Geocaching, which, if you do not already know is the world’s largest treasure hunt!

We are delighted to be able to welcome Sandra, Mark and Clair to the team and look forward to their contribution towards our customers and our future growth.

We are still recruiting for a senior software engineer and a technical project manager. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at or call 08452416460.
