Jack will be joining the CoinBurp Team as a Quality Assurance Engineer. To celebrate, we wanted to find out a bit more about him. Interested? Read on!

Tell us about your role at CoinBurp?

“I’m CoinBurp’s QA Engineer — in charge of ensuring the quality of the apps we’re building and the website, ensuring customers have the best possible experience; and to tell the devs off when they do shady work!”

Tell us about your previous role before starting at CoinBurp?

“Worked with Avast, the cybersecurity company, and I worked on their browser. Their browser is designed for being safe and secure, so you know, Doris can do her online banking safely without her data being stolen by anyone else.”

Tell us about an achievement of yours; academically or in your career?

“I suppose academically I did finish my dissertation with one hand because I shattered my right hand as I was writing it up so I had to code and write a 15000 essay with one hand which was a lot harder than it sounds.”

Tell us about your hobbies or interests outside of work?

“I’m part of a level 5 worlds Cheerleading team, so that’s a big one. If you have a free weekend I recommend trying out cheering if you can find an open gym. I also, like most people in London, enjoy bouldering.”

What is your greatest fear?

“Something lame like failure, letting people down I guess, very generic.”

What is your biggest pet peeve?

“Loud eaters, I despise them, cannot stand them.”

What TV show or movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

“Once Upon a Time! It’s like Disney stories made live and it was a TV series, it was terrible but it was so much fun to watch. If you have Disney+ I would recommend it.”

If you had to eat 1 meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

“Sandwiches, because you can do anything with a sandwich”

If you had to be stuck on an island, what 3 things would you bring with you?

“Swiss army pen knife, a football and some red paint so I can make my own Wilson.”

If you were to write a book about yourself, what would the title be?

“10 steps on how not to get stuck on a deserted island!”
