Say hi to Sam Chalmers, a Front End Developer with Reactive, a global digital agency based in Melbourne. A born-and-bred Kiwi, Sam worked in London for over seven years then finally came back to Melbourne to settle down and grow his family.
I'm a Front End Developer, which means I'm in charge of creating great digital user experiences through creative code. My main role is to make great designs come to life, all the while creating clean and easily accessible experiences for a variety of users on the Internet.
I'd first heard of Reactive when I'd just graduated, and had then set a goal to one day secure a role within the agency. Even as I was working in London and in other companies, I made sure to track Reactive's progress through their website while I was gradually building my skill sets. When I returned to Australia, Reactive was one of the first few companies I sent my CV to.
I really enjoy working at the cutting edge of web development, having new projects to challenge myself with and inspire me at work.
I suppose that would be deadlines, and the stresses they bring to the job.
