Quick Questions with Hayden: Front End Developer

When he's not putting the office coffee machine through its paces or spending his paychecks on fancy new golf clubs you can find Hayden in our Tauranga office working on the front end of the SwipedOn platform.  We caught up with Hayden to find out what a day in the life at SwipedOn is like for him. 

What does a day in the life of you at SwipedOn look like? 

The coffee machine is the anchor to my day. Without fail every morning I will put down my things and head directly to the kitchen.

After my cup of coffee, I'll check my emails/github notifications and figure out what I will be working on for the day. When 9:30 rolls around we have our team stand up, this is where we let each other know what we're working on and if we have any issues.

After that I will put my headphones on and get to work, I also like to stop and rest my eyes by walking along the waterfront.

What do you like about working at SwipedOn? 

People, it's always about the people. SwipedOn has done a really great job at growing quickly but ensuring that the culture here always remains the same.

What do you particularly like about what weโ€™re doing with SwipedOn?  

One of our core values at SwipedOn is simplicity and I truly believe this has a big influence on the way we develop our product.

One of our goals for everything we do is to make it simple and make it beautiful.

What three words would you use to describe your role? 

1. Code
2. Experience
3. Fun

What is your SwipedOn screensaver?  

I still use the default big sur screensaver, maybe one day I will change it... ๐Ÿ’ญ ๐Ÿค” 

What did you do in your previous working life? 

Code, code & more code. Programming has been something that I've just always done, either for my work life or as a hobby.

When I was younger I use to work in an ice factory. It was cold but I got to work with my high school friends so also fun! ๐Ÿ˜† 

What do you do in your free time?  

Most of my free time is spent watching sports or playing sports.

What are three things still left on your bucket list?  

I haven't put too much thought into a bucket list ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 

Whatโ€™s on your SwipedOn playlist?  

I like to mix things up, so whatever is on my Spotify discover weekly playlist at the time.

If you were stuck on a desert island and you could choose one person from the SwipedOn team to come with you, who would you take and why?  

Probably Kaan, he can use his flying skills to build us an aircraft and get us home.

Let's end this with a weird fact about you...

I can't think of one ๐Ÿ˜‚
