a day in the life / Louis Morgan

As a Junior Developer, my days are usually quite varied so it’s hard to give an accurate account of a typical day (which isn’t exactly a bad thing).
I work in the web department and also the ProSupport department so I’ll give a brief overview of both.

Web

A typical day in the web department is varied. They always start with morning catch up, this is where we gather at 8:30am and go through what we all did the previous day and what we will be working on that day. It’s really helpful to see what people are working on going into the day as we can bring up any issues very early.
After catch up, it’s straight into work. If I’m working on amends I will usually get briefed by either another developer or our project manager. If it’s project work I’m working on, then I’ll dive in and crack on. Being able to work on various sites in short periods of time helps me learn to grow as a developer and also benefits the team – win-win.
The front end team work very closely with the design team, so when I’m working on new projects it’s really handy being able to just swivel my chair and ask them about a design. So a typical day for me usually involves a lot of the team.
Around 2 or 3 times a week I will meet with another developer and go through training and things I struggle with which is also incredibly helpful.

ProSupport

A typical day in ProSupport is even more varied than web. The day starts with a quick catch up with the team and then a good look at the schedule for that day.
I’ll then work through what needs to be done that day. This could be amending problems on our clients’ websites, creating email campaigns, or building completely new pages.
Another part of my job for ProSupport is to audit websites that we think we could help. This can be a lot of fun because I can be very creative in coming up with new ideas for these websites.
No two days are the same, which is why I love working here.


Think you’d love it at Clicky too? We’re currently looking for a new front-end developer to join the team!
