Zoe McElderry, Senior Software Engineer

What’s the best thing about your role at ADLINK?

The best thing about my role is the variety of the work -- a new and interesting challenge is always just around the corner.

Where did you work before ADLINK?

I worked in academia before ADLINK, at Newcastle University.  For me, the move into industry was motivated by a desire to do something more practical and I don't regret it at all.

What exciting things do you get to work on here?

The main focus of my work is developing services as part of the Vortex Edge product.  The services vary a lot, which means that I get to work with a variety of different programming languages: Java, C/C++, NodeJS.  I enjoy hearing about all the different use cases that our services are required for.

Where do you live?  What’s great about it the area

I live in a suburb just North of Newcastle.  I love the area because I like the convenience of city living *and* I like beaches and countryside.  Newcastle offers all of this within easy reach of the city.

What’s the best thing about working here?

I really enjoy the variety and challenge of the work that I do, and the working environment is supportive and relaxed.
