Directors talk business – Andy
I’ll happily admit on being computer geek by trade. I studied Computer Science and made some pocket money at the time running a small web design company with my housemate.
Mini-interview with the CTO
At Totally there’s always opportunity to develop and improve your talent which creates room to progress.
A day in the life of an agency Designer
As a general rule, we tend to manage ourselves and our work tasks in conjunction with our Head of Technology, Ben, and the respective project manager.
A day in the life of a Developer
Without further ado here’s what our CEO Andy Margolis had to say.
Hey Andy, can you tell our readers your role within the company and your day-to-day jobs.
I am CEO which means the buck stops with me!
I get to deal with all the good bits of new business development and company expansion as well as some of the not-so-good bits of client and finance issues as well as employment problems. Every single day offers different challenges, but there is rarely a dull moment.
How did you get to this point in your career?
Before starting Totally, I worked as a freelancer within the GSM mobile telephone sector. Prior to that I spent time in the financial sector, based in New York.
Some people tell me I had to start my own company as I was unemployable, I prefer to think of myself more of an entrepreneur!
Where do you see the company heading in the next five years?
We are in a good place. Steady growth, a great set of long-term clients, good quality work, and a fantastic team. I see this continuing over the coming years with hopefully small acquisitions to support our growth.
If you could sum the Totally culture up in three words what would they be?
Empowering, supportive, creative.
Are there any specific projects you’re looking forward to / are especially proud of?
Every project and every client is important to us, however there is no doubt that working within the charity sector, delivering efficiencies, collaboration mechanics and fundraising tools is extremely satisfying.
