Meet Our New Junior Web Developer: Matthew


The cat versus dog debate is a regular debate to be had by our team. However, it seems our newest recruit Matt sits firmly on the fence when it comes to his choice of furry friend.

While you might not catch Matt getting all the goss from the latest episode of TOWIE, you will find him making things look pretty online with our Web Team.

Nickname: Never really had one. Not one that’s appropriate anyway!

Age: 23

Lives: Bolton

Office: Stockport

Loves: Gaming, Anime, Food, Music, my dog Tilly and my girlfriend’s cat Morgana.

Hates: Social Media, Bolton & “Reality” TV.

Quickly sum up a day in the life of a Junior Web Developer:

I make things look pretty online as best I can, and I fix bugs that inevitably create more problems than solutions.

What would you be doing if you weren’t working at Platform81?

Looking after my dog Tilly, who can usually be found hanging from feet, attacking my socks.

Describe your dream holiday?

Going on a cruise ship. Preferably around Norway.

Favourite food?

Beef in Black Bean Sauce with rice (or noodles)

Talk us through your perfect night out…

Nice drinks in a good bar with decent music.

Dream date?

Spending the evening with my girlfriend, playing games, eating food, and laughing at questionable tv programmes and films.

Describe yourself in 3 words…

I’m usually nice.

Tell us about your most embarrassing moment?

I gave myself a black eye when I was a kid by running into a black wheelie bin.

Finally, what’s your guilty pleasure?

The Eurovision song content. That and funky music.
