Welcoming the newest members of the Paritor team

Welcoming the newest members of the Paritor team

We are pleased to welcome two new full-time members to the Paritor team: Emma Anderson and Matthew Batten. Our new Customer Communications Executive and Junior Software Engineer are graduates from the University of Exeter. They wanted to introduce themselves to you… 

Emma Anderson

“I’m Emma Anderson and I have newly joined the Paritor team as a Customer Communications Executive. I completed my undergraduate in English last summer and I am currently completing an MA in Creativity: Innovation and Business Strategy part-time. I am a passionate writer and creative who wants to use my enthusiasm for words in my communications role. I try to educate myself on something new everyday and relish the learning opportunity that Paritor has offered me. 

I enjoy maintaining a busy schedule, including reading classic literature, journaling, shopping for vintage fashion, and going for runs by the Exeter quayside”.

Matthew Batten

“My name is Matthew Batten and I’m joining the  Paritor  team as a Junior Software Engineer. Having finished my BSc in Mathematics last year at the University of Exeter, I knew I wanted to return  to Devon to start my professional career. The opportunity to work at  Paritor  was too good to turn down and although sometimes challenging; I am really enjoying the work.  

When I’m not working you can often find me on my bike and if I’m not on my bike, I’m recovering from my last ride (or crash). Any other spare time is usually spent watching West Ham lose, or if I’m lucky, they might get a draw!” 

Our new team members will be working towards improving the product from the get go!  

Emma will be working on writing the user manual and training materials for the new up-and-coming software and Matt will be working on developing functionality and user experience.  

They will also continue to improve Paritor operations beyond this. Emma will produce regular written content for Paritor’s webpage, emails, social media, and software user content. Matt will be working on the continuous development of Paritor’s software to produce an even smoother and more user friendly experience for our customers. Both graduates are undergoing training with the team to improve their understanding of the services and support Paritor provides. 

Our newest additions started with Paritor during the Covid-19 lockdown and have joined the rest of the team in working from home to support efforts to prevent the spread of the virus. As restrictions have eased the team have been able to meet in outdoor spaces to familiarise themselves with new members and engage in the office rapport we all miss! The team will remain operating effectively from home for the foreseeable future.  

Congratulations and good luck to Emma and Matt!
