Meet the Team – Matt Prince

Oct 9, 2020

The WDSEO team has grown, so it’s time for another edition of ‘Meet the Team’! This time, we sat down with Web Developer Matt Prince to learn more about his interests, passion for web design and love of games.

What’s your role at WDSEO?

I’m a Web Developer, helping to take client requirements right through to a solution that delivers quality results. Additionally, I work closely with both the Web, SEO and Sales teams to streamline processes, design solutions and help determine how best to deliver this to clients.

How long have you been working in the web design industry?

I’ve been in the Web Design & Development industry since I finished my Applied Computer Science degree in June/July 2020. Since joining WDSEO I’ve been working on projects large and small gaining incredible experience along the way.

What led you to this career?

After achieving a First Class Applied Computer Science degree in June/July 2020 and a Creative Media Design course prior to that, I initially believed a job in Software Development was where I needed to head. However, after graduating and looking properly at the positions out there, Web Development at WDSEO seemed like an incredibly promising prospect!

Shortly after applying for the job, I spoke with Diana for some more information on the position; this gave me so much confidence around the working environment and the scope of the position. I can honestly say this job and company has been one of the best things for me personally as well as my career.

What project(s) are you most proud of?

There are so many projects to choose from, picking one would be doing injustice to all of the hard work we’ve all put into these quality pieces of work! If I had to name a few projects, I would go with the following:

  • Mila’s Bakery – E-Commerce, DPD Integration, Process Automation
  • Cutting Garden – Existing Client, Incredibly Unique Design Brief, Complete Website Redesign
  • Green Circle Bespoke Glazing – Client Relationship Management, Website Design & Development

When you were a child what did you want to be?

I know many kids wanted to be astronauts or firemen and so on, but I always loved numbers as a kid and after being told accountants work with numbers all day, I thought I was destined for it. Funny how things change!

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?

I love a good bit of gaming, cooking and watching a series on Netflix.

If you had a time machine, would go back in time or into the future?

It has to be the future for me, seeing where things have developed to would be an exceptional experience.

If you could only have three apps on your smartphone, which would you pick?

Spotify, Steam and Discord are my go-to’s.

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?

Being able to create objects I think. Giving me the capability to adapt to many situations would be interesting.

Time for some quick-fire questions!

  • Dream holiday destination? Japan.
  • Favourite film of all time? Good Will Hunting
  • Any hidden talents? My mental maths has always been sharp if you consider that a hidden talent!
  • Favourite season? Winter without a doubt, I love it when it’s cooler!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I love a good fry up, not the healthiest meal granted! Delicious none the less haha.

What 3 things are on your bucket list?

  1. Visit Japan and its animal sanctuaries, like the Fox Village and Cat Island.
  2. Learning to drive and getting on the road.
  3. Backpacking/travelling through Europe would be a dream come true.

Lastly, if you could pick four dream dinner party guests, who would you pick and why?

Robin Williams – Always the life of any party and hilarious to boot.

Mark Hamill – I am sure he would have some great stories about the goings on behind Star Wars!

Albert Einstein – Someone with such achievements would be an honour to have a talk with.

Adam Levine – Maroon 5 have been a favourite of mine for many years and getting to meet the lead would be awesome.
