Welcome to our new backend software developer Andrew Dawson

This month we welcomed the newest member of our team Andrew Dawson, a recent graduate in physics and theoretical physics from the University of Nottingham.

Andrew is a highly motivated quantum systems enthusiast with experience in problem-solving in pressured environments. He has outstanding literacy and mathematical skills as proven in his self-employed role, alongside his studies, working for, where he demonstrated the ability to work both independently and as a team successfully.

Andrew has exceptional programming skills in a wide variety of languages from Python, MATLAB, SQL, and C# to HTML and CSS — and we think an ideal fit for cThings working in both Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) and scientific computing methodologies.

Andrew’s previous role as a physics and mathematics tutor for the online learning portal where his responsibilities included:

  • creating unique lessons to fit individual needs in skill-building and full instruction on each subject
  • provided exam preparation services for SATs, GCSE, A-Level and equivalent examinations
  • assisted students of all skill levels in mathematics and physics
  • closely monitored and recorded student progress to create detailed learning plans for struggling students, and
  • scheduled tutoring sessions to help students improve grades and gain a better grasp of course material.

Andrew will be part of our team working on a wide range of software challenges that include designing and building new web portals, integrating third-party applications, and further developing our existing products. His diverse range of programming and data science skills will be a real asset to the cThings team and we’ll let you know how he gets on.

In his spare time, Andrew is a keen glider and was a member of the RAF Cranwell Gliding Club. Since moving to Cambridge he hopes to join another club and begin gliding over the Cambridgeshire countryside very soon.

We wish Andrew the best of luck in his new role.
