This week we’re getting to know effini’s Head of Engineering and resident sourdough gourmet, Chris Wilson, as he talks about his role at effini and what he enjoys most about his work.
What is your role at effini and what does that involve?
“I’m responsible for all the technical aspects of effini, both internally and for our clients. I oversee all the Data and Software engineering, as well as IT, which includes team-leading and management. This means I wear a lot of hats!”
What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
“When it comes to my work, one of the things I enjoy the most is seeing the difference it makes for a client. It’s great to see how our work helps them improve process, speed up their ability to get value from their data and lose some of the horrible manual activities they needed to do. I also like the range of sectors our clients come from and the variety of challenges that come with it.”
Outside of the world of data, what do you enjoy?
“I like the outdoors, as much as the Scottish summer allows for it! Really enjoy camping with the family and sports such as tennis. I also enjoy cooking – I’ve always enjoyed making things from scratch. During lockdown I had plenty of time to practice making Fake-aways!”
All of us in effini have seen your fantastic baking abilities, especially with sourdough. So why sourdough?
“Using dried yeast is too easy 😉 It doesn’t present that much of a challenge. Hence the sourdough. Also we ran out of yeast during lockdown!”
