About The Web Development Department

Building and maintaining our company websites to a high standard calls for a first-rate Web Development team. With a robust process in place to fix issues, develop new pages and test the sites, this team ensures our sites are working at an optimum level to provide an easy-to-use online printing solution for our customers.

Sophie, Lead Web Developer

What does your role involve?

I oversee all the activity that happens on the instantprint website. I prioritise tasks and then I go away and organise what we call ‘sprints’. This is essentially a period of time to complete the tasks ahead of us. Then I filter this down to the wider development team.

My role also involves developing and nurturing the skills of developers in my team. One of the great things about Bluetree is that we hire people based on their values, not just experience. As a company we believe that if you have the right attitude towards work, regardless of experience, we can teach you the rest.

What’s the best bit about your job?

As Lead Developer, I am able to give full support and mentor other developers which has always been my aim. I enjoy helping someone grow as an individual and become a great member of the team. I also love seeing the site progress as it’s really rewarding when I feel I can contribute to making a big difference.

Why do you enjoy working for Bluetree Group?

The working environment and office culture we have here is incredible. Everyone conducts themselves in a positive and professional manner and is really encouraged to think big. It’s refreshing to work for a company where there’s no such thing as a bad idea and, as a result, you feel totally valued. I also feel like my career has really been taken off. This company has transformed not only my abilities workwise, but also shaped who I am today. When I first joined Bluetree, I was so quiet and shy and now I lead a team of three developers and a QA. I’m shortly going to be undertaking a management course to further develop my people management skills. It’s really great to work for a company that invests so heavily in its people.

Cei, Web Developer

What does your role involve?

As part of the instantprint Web Development team, my job involves working on the instantprint website, making changes to all the different things our customers will interact with online – from our product pages to our free design templates. Overall, it’s about making sure a quality experience is delivered.

What’s the best bit about your job?

I work on a really supportive team. This is my first job in the industry after graduating, and they’ve really helped me find my feet. You never feel like you can’t ask a question if you need clarification on something.

Why do you enjoy working for Bluetree Group?

I love how enthusiastic everyone is. We have an annual sports day, and even though our team lost, we still got super hyped for it! That attitude is also expressed in our work; we’re motivated to do our best because we’re surrounded by people who share that same passion.

Claire, Project Manager

What does your role involve?

I’m Project Manager for the Core Web Development and instantprint Web Development teams. My job is to make sure the business has supplied all the relevant information for the developers to work their way through projects; I make sure we’re on track for any deadlines, and try to make sure there are no work blockers, whilst ensuring the developers are happy with their current tasks.

What’s the best bit about your job?

There’s so much to learn! I don’t come from a technical background, so it was a bit like learning a foreign language to begin with. I pick up something new every day, and I don’t think that will stop any time soon! It’s also great when we pull off a smooth release, and we can see how everyone’s hard work has paid off.

Why do you enjoy working for Bluetree Group?

Bluetree is such an eclectic company; since we do everything in-house, there are so many specialists – from Web Developers to Graphic Designers to Print Technicians. You never need to be worried about getting bored here!

Rob, Senior Developer

What does your role involve?

I’m a Senior Developer for the Core Systems team. The Core team provides a range of web services to the Route1Print and instantprint brands. My day is spent writing/reviewing code, testing, mentoring junior developers and helping to build specifications for work going forward.

What’s the best bit about your job?

The best bit has to be the team. We’re a bunch of awesome and talented nerds that are driven to excel but are also always on hand to have a laugh with.

Why do you enjoy working for Bluetree Group?

They provide the freedom to learn. In the past few years, alongside my set schedule I’m given time to work on bits that not only might progress into something that will help drive the business forward but give me a platform to learn new skills.
