Team Phoenix Talks: David Kerridge
We shine the spotlight on members of Team Phoenix to discover what matters to them, what it’s like being part of the team, and provide an honest insight working in the tech industry.
This month, we sat down for a chat with David Kerridge, Infrastructure Support Analyst to find out why he describes working at Phoenix as ‘refreshing’.
What’s your experience of working at Phoenix so far?
“I joined Phoenix Software in October 2020 in what I can only describe as a unicorn situation – to be offered a role with limitless progression in a friendly, nurturing and supportive environment. From the very beginning, you are adopted into an inclusive family and given all the tools you need to succeed in your role. Across the entire business, everyone’s door is truly always open, and the transparency of company direction and practices is so refreshing. There are no egos here, just a clear passion for what we do and our goals.”
Tell us a little bit about your role.
“I work alongside a fantastic group of people across our various teams, supporting and improving our customer’s IT environments and development. As part of the infrastructure team, a typical day for me is dealing with the physical environments, system upgrades and all the niggly bits that only Dr Google understands!
“I have also recently started a new role in the upcoming Security Operation Centre (SOC) with the purpose of defending the organisation from cyber-attacks.”
