Quick Questions with Jasmine Hindson: Mobile Developer

When she's not walking in the hills, dreaming about adopting a dog or tending to her growing collection of plants, you'll find Jas in the SwipedOn office creating iOS and Android magic as a mobile developer. We caught up with Jas to find out what a day in the life at SwipedOn is like for her. 

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

I like to start my day early in the office with a coffee. At this point, I'm usually reading over my tickets for the day and checking for any new things that may have come up since the previous day. Some days include meetings or collaborative work and other days I'm just jamming out with my headphones whilst doing individual work. As a Mobile Developer, I am normally doing things like bug fixes (or finding them 😅), QAs and PRs, implementing new features for our app, and learning new skills.

What do you like about working at SwipedOn? 

There are a lot of things that are pretty cool about working for SwipedOn. Firstly, the location is mint. We get stunning balcony views of the water and the occasional visit from Orca. The working environment is also super fun and collaborative. The people here are always happy to help one another and we like to keep each other on our toes.

What do you particularly like about what we’re doing with SwipedOn?  

I like how we quickly adapt to what's happening around us. Here at SwipedOn, we listen to customer's needs and from this we come up with cool new features that build on our product. There's always something fresh and exciting to look forward to which keeps us motivated and open to learning new skills.

What three words would you use to describe your role? 

1. Diverse
2. Exciting
3. Versatile

What is your SwipedOn screensaver?  

One of my favourite tv show's logo - The Office

What did you do in your previous working life? 

I used to mainly work in hospitality and retail. I worked as a waitress at The Coffee Club, Papamoa Beach Tavern, and Dui's Restaurant of Fine Thai Cuisine. As for retail, I worked for the clothing stores Repertoire and Evolution.

What do you do in your free time?  

In my free time, you can catch me either out on a walk like the Mount or Papamoa Hills, buying a new plant or grabbing a coffee with friends. Otherwise if the weather is gloomy, I like to stay indoors and watch my favourite tv shows with a cup of tea or I'll hit the gym for a solid workout.

What are three things still left on your bucket list?  

1. Adopt a dog
2. Travel around the world
3. Go to a massive music festival like Sziget or Neverland

What’s on your SwipedOn playlist?  

My playlist really depends on my mood and what tasks I'm doing that day. When I need to focus I like to chuck on some Fisher, Wilkinson, What So Not, etc. If I need to uplift and motivate myself, I listen to artists like Kanye, Lizzo and Ariana Grande. Also due to my dad's influence, I'll also listen to the occasional ACDC, ABBA, Bob Dylan, etc. I listen to pretty much anything that makes me want to have a little dance in my chair.

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?  

I would probably have to choose Lou as my stranded on an island buddy. This way I could sneak in some surfing lessons and then we could surf our way home, if that's even possible 🤔

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

I can fall asleep almost anywhere. I've fallen asleep at rock concerts, in a tuk tuk in Thailand, on the beach, you name a place and I've probably had a nap there.
