We’re very pleased to introduce to you – Alex Post. Alex has joined affix as a Digital Design and Development Talent Advocate.
This girl is a fire cracker….. Incredibly driven, kind and passionate about all things people. All the right ingredients! After having just spent 2 weeks in Boston, she’s back onboard (albeit a little jet lagged) and ready for a new adventure. Get to know her…
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT WORKING WITH AFFIX SO FAR?
Hands down the team and the vibe that they bring to the table every day. You spend 80% of your time at work, so you better make sure you are spending it with humans who are inclusive, lively, and motivated by the right things
WHAT MAKES AFFIX DIFFERENT TO THE OTHER PLACES YOU’VE WORKED?
The values – affix lives and breathes our values. Our success is contingent upon the success of those who we are partnering with. We believe in partnerships rather than clients, deep connections rather than candidates and lasting relationships rather than transactions.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE OUR CUSTOMERS?
Partners, Innovators & Legendary.
WHAT SORT OF TECH ROLES DO YOU RECRUIT?
Technology & Experience Design.
WHAT TECH TOOLS/SKILLS ARE IN DEMAND RIGHT NOW?
User experience design, service design and React for front end Dev!
WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR SPACE?
When I was younger (and growing up) I always wanted to be an artist of some kind. I tried art classes & musical theater….and unfortunately came to the realisation that I had two left feet and the drawing abilities of a kindergartener. What I love about the Digital space is that you do not have to be an artist to be creative. This is something that has been engrained into me over the past few years. My passion is helping companies to create innovative, meaningful and long lasting solutions while always keeping the user in mind.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE AFFIX WORK ETHIC?
WHAT’S ONE THING THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY AT WORK?
Patting a puppy and enjoying a glass of wine…. ideally at the same time – from a bean bag, with the team.
IF AFFIX WERE A COLOUR, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Turquoise – because it is happy and calm like the ocean… which is my happy place.
Girls in Tech, Yoga, Meditation, travel & wine.
BEACH OR SNOW?
Can’t I choose both? (but if I had to choose one…. I would go with beach – the ocean is my grounding force).
WHAT DOES A NORMAL SATURDAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
No one Saturday is created equal. But if I had to pin point a typical 3 Saturdays it would be as follows:
1). Finding a music festival or gig
2). Taking it easy with a yoga class and a good book or Netflix series
3). Adventuring around Victoria
