New WWT opening to boost London's tech scene
Posted by DevOps Online:
Helping accommodate more business prospects and jobs within London's tech scene, general manager at WWT Asynchrony Labs, Kelly White, spoke exclusively with Software Testing News and TEST Magazine reporter, Leah Alger, about the ambitions behind the firm opening its new headquarters in London
Operating since 2000 through designing and developing "rich-featured" mobile applications, the software technology firm Asynchrony Labs focuses on the agile delivery of custom software applications, to help clients deliver mobility vision and assist mobile platform initiatives.
"People come to us with pain, which we try so solve. We build solutions and projects, and success is based on our solution. What we see from a customer standpoint is how successful we are," announced White.
Joining the organisation to build a 'User Experience' practice to provide user research, UI design, and front-end engineering capabilities to software teams, White has been a vital cog in the wheel to keep Asynchrony turning for nearly 7 years. Seeing the company expand rapidly and understanding the importance of a friendly culture in the work place, he focuses on professional development, to continue the legacy of crafting measurably impactful outcomes for its European customers.
White revealed: "I started working for Asynchrony when there were 50 people, now there is around 450. The culture we had when it was a small company is what we are still very keen to achieve – friendly, informative and laid-back.
"It's hard to keep a friendly culture when there are 6 locations and over 100 employees. We talk about craftsmanship, but how can we foster that when there are so many locations? It's very challenging."
To help support customer relationships through "great design and development in the market", White has bought software expertise to Canary Wharf, London, and is delighted to be part of the move.
