Senior Software Consultant

Ariela Bawol

My role at Waterstons is...

About as nerdy as it can get. I'm part of the bespoke software development team, which means that I spend a lot of my time perfecting my coding skills, learning new technologies and sharing my knowledge with my colleagues. I also get to know our clients really well and learn about the problems they are facing so that I can design the right solution for them, which I love doing.

My proudest Waterstons moment is...

Was when my colleague and I organised a Code & Beer session about Azure Functions for our department. It took place a few years ago but people still talk fondly about it to this day because it had a big impact on the technologies we use today. It also taught me that sharing knowledge is very important.

My life away from work is...

Is spent pretending that I'm a "professional" photographer by taking embarrassing photos of my closest family and my cat Apollo; he is great at modelling and makes my job extremely easy - you can follow him on Instagram. I am also slowly catching up on my childhood dream of owning a huge Lego collection by constantly finding good excuses to buy new Lego sets.

I’ll be with you when...

You're facing a problem that off-the-shelf software cannot solve for you. Designing and writing software that will solve your problem is my passion!
