Becoming a Project Manager at a tech agency

Starting in project management at a larger agency was a great introduction to the industry, as I got a high-level overview of all the working parts of a busy studio, working with a large team of developers from different disciplines as well as a large in-house design and account executive team. I got to know what each job role involved, which was invaluable when working with smaller teams too, where job roles and responsibilities are often less specialised and everyone has to chip in to get the job done.

Project Management to Quality Assurance, flexible working and passion projects

I soon realised that full-time work was getting in the way of my other passions and interests, and luckily I found a part-time role at Moresoda at the start of 2020. Having worked for a year as a Project Manager, I was offered the opportunity to become the Quality Assurance Analyst, which I immediately jumped at, as it gave me the opportunity to develop my technical skills further, use my analytical thinking even more, and begin to forge a career that I could more realistically maintain as a part-timer, as the role is no longer client-facing in the same way. 

It’s been a long and winding road to get to where I am today, but I couldn’t be happier with where I’ve ended up. I work with a great bunch of people doing interesting work. I am continuing to grow and develop professionally and I still get to pursue my passion projects outside of work too.
