And the pace has moved fast since his last visit. Joe has helped guide the leadership team in building a dream team of developers with a proven ability to adapt to the constant challenges thrown up by the ever-changing technological landscape.
The team at Holidayextras.com are tasked with building a new system, using cutting edge technologies including Ruby on Rails, Node.js and Heroku. The ultimate aim is to make booking hassle free extras for every holiday – simple and fast – matching customers’ to available products.
Joe Stump said: “I’m amazed at how fast this project is moving – there really is nothing like it, nothing remotely similar, in the whole of the travel trade – and it’s a blast working with these guys.”
Damien Turner, Head of IT at HolidayExtras.com, commented: “I’m so proud of my team for embracing change and a real learning culture.”
“It’s great to be able to bounce ideas and get a steer from someone of Joe’s experience and track record. New possibilities have opened up for the team with far reaching benefits that only a well-respected web architect like Joe can bring.
“The scope is amazing: in the past we used to have to wait seven days to create a new server; now I can do it from home on my iPhone in just a few minutes.”
