Thomas Coombs brings a breadth of experience to his role. His managerial abilities as Development Manager for Moonpig.com, the online gift seller, help him market and build client relationships for the digital tracking solutions he builds, combining 14 years of technical development experience.
The digital tracking team is engaged with some of blue-infinity’s biggest clients on ground-breaking solutions and technologies. Thomas enjoys the mobile first, efficiency-focused development environment this provides and currently leads deployments in Austria, Czech Republic and Turkey where he established client relationships and an Agile approach.
Thomas says his experience in joining blue-infinity since early 2015 has been fast and action-packed. “I’ve been promoted and feel blue-infinity has propelled me forward, more so than a traditional consultancy where the hierarchy might be rather cumbersome and non-conducive to cross-functional collaboration.”
The daily challenges are rewarding. “Maintaining customer expectations is paramount and for this we need to be close to the client and highly transparent in our action and response.” This in addition to coordinating a virtual team across many of blue-infinity's departments.
His team also contributes to a healthy work environment where everybody has a chance to prove themselves. “Being good at what you do and knowing how to work well with your superiors helps grow the team.” On any given day, up to 10 people are involved in project decision making, underlining the importance of a strong social bond between team mates.
As for his new home, “My lifestyle in Switzerland is markedly different to the UK. In a lot of ways for the better.” Having recently started a family, Thomas also enjoys photography, gadgets, tech toys, race cars, and bikes – when he can take time away from changing nappies.
