In just one month we’ve filled three new positions and made a big office move!
In November we moved from Ripley to Derby’s Derwent Business Centre; a more central location with a much bigger, creative space. The team now work in a large main office as well as having the added benefits of a games room (complete with ping pong table), meeting room and greeting area.
Last year, we started offering digital marketing services, in particular, SEO; a process which increases the visibility of a business online.
Because of the increasing demand for digital marketing, Frogspark introduced Paul to the team. Paul has a degree in English Literature and a master’s degree in Creative Writing.
He began his career at Marks Electrical where he ran SEO and PPC campaigns for their e-commerce site.
In his spare time, Paul also teaches music lessons and plays in a two-piece band.
Paul told us; “working at Frogspark has been great. Since day one I’ve been given the freedom to perform at my best and supported in developing my skills. The relaxed environment and personalities make it a pleasure to work here.”
James and Josh were brought in to increase Frogspark’s capacity for new projects and to bring fresh ideas to the company.
“James and Josh are very talented, young developers keen to progress in their sector.” Liam, Frogspark director.
James, our new front end developer, has both agency and in-house experience which means he has developed skills in many areas. In his last role, he helped build and maintained the front end of an e-learning website.
“Being part of such a creative and dynamic team is inspiring. Each day is a new challenge and I look forward to continued growth here at Frogspark.” James Shand, Front End Developer.
Josh is our new full stack developer. At just 20, his knowledge and skills in coding far exceed a lot of those who have been in the sector for a lot longer.
His previous job involved working on payment systems for schools. Josh studied Space Engineering whilst at college where he gained an A level in physics and a BTEC in engineering.
“From the get-go, Frogspark has allowed me to work on a spectrum of different projects, each with their own unique challenge.
“Going forward, I hope to continue to aid the business in its growth as it helps me with my own career development.” Josh Ghent, Full Stack Developer.
“Liam and I are extremely happy with the new Frogspark members! They each bring a great set of skills to the business which will be very valuable to future of Frogspark.
“The new digital marketing expertise we now have in-house means we can offer the full package to each of our clients” Rob, Frogspark director.
