New senior front-end developer, Lyndsey Herbert, said: “Ampersand has provided a great new challenge for me. My main responsibilities are working on our customers’ sites (whether that involves the smallest bugs or the fanciest new features) but also to review code and make sure it is written to a high standard, and to support the other developers in this too.”
On the expansion of the business, Ampersand’s managing director Brett Cooper said: “Our plans for the rest of the year, and into 2019, are ambitious and so we’re investing in a strong team with the capabilities we need. We have had a great year so far and there’s a lot of opportunity in the pipeline.”
