Spotlight on…Fraser Haddow

Posted On: 19th July 2023

In what capacity did you join BiP? What role did you start in and what role do you have now?

I joined BiP in the role of Scrum Master, but have recently transitioned to Platform Success Manager.

Whattakes up the most amount of your time in your day-to-day? 

Azure DevOps! It’s the platform that allows us to track progress on our product development and keep track of any issues, so it’s use forms a large part of the role.

What do you like most about your job? 

I like seeing a product improvement travel through all the stages from idea to implementation and then deployment, overseeing the journey to completion provides a great sense of satisfaction.

What do you like most about working at BiP? 

I like interacting with lots of people that span multiple departments and roles, this keeps things interesting, and it always helps to see things from other people’s perspectives.

What does a great day at work look like?

It always starts with coffee – then a day with a few meetings (not too little or too many!) and some time to get some work done. Ideally, right now a good day also involves bugs being closed and no new ones being opened.

Do you have any unusual hobbies?

I’m a big movie nerd and am very into low budget/indie horror which is maybe unusual! Music wise, I also am very into death metal and New York hardcore which is a little unusual.

Been anywhere strange? (country/place/bar/tourist attraction?!)

The most fascinating place I’ve been is a city called Varanasi in India – would recommend to anyone, it’s super interesting.

Blow your own! … what do you excel at? Work or leisure

I like to think I’m quite good at guitar and drums. Work wise – I think I’m pretty good at being organised, but my colleagues can tell you if that’s true or not!
