AtomicMedia, the Nottingham-based digital product agency, has expanded its team with 12 new appointments since July, following significant new contract wins.
One such contract was with construction equipment manufacturers JCB. AtomicMedia helped the company to launch a new customer telematics platform.
Managing Director Duncan Beiley said: “Although based in Nottingham our clients are worldwide and the dedicated work of everyone at AtomicMedia during lockdown has enabled our company to successfully turn our clients challenges into opportunities for our business.
“Coming back to the office and seeing so many new team members has been really encouraging. The last few months has produced dozens of unexpected challenges for everyone but we’ve been able to lead, adapt and grow whilst continuing to deliver the level of service we pride ourselves on to our clients.
“This is a testament both to those who have been with us for years and the new additions. I can’t wait to get involved in the exciting projects we have lined up for this year and believe our new team members will allow us, and subsequently our clients, to thrive.”
AtomicMedia’s new appointments include, Alun Edwards as Design Director. Alun will be shaping and leading the design studio. Having previously worked at Studio Output and a number of other high-profile UK agencies, he brings over 20 years of experience within the design industry, having worked with forward-thinking organisations such as the BBC, Speedo, Sony PlayStation, Boots, SYCO and Nest.co.uk.
Alun said: “We’re in a pivotal spot right now within the economy and industry and it’s a great time to get onboard and grow the design and UX offering at AtomicMedia. During these interesting times, personally speaking, it’s already been heartening to know we’ve developed new and exciting ways of working for our design teams and with clients – It’s reassuring to know how well we’ve adapted and that we’ve got the approach, people and tools in place to offer this in a remote and collaborative format.”
Ryan Hewitt has been appointed Senior UI & UX Designer. Ryan joined AtomicMedia from a specialist UX agency, just as the first lockdown began. He has been busy delivering client work and developing the wider UX offering, especially the capacity to work remotely and collaboratively. He is also a key member of AtomicMedia’s specialised Design Sprint team, with the ability to work remotely with clients on rapid problem solving for them.
Ryan Wright has been appointed Head of Project Delivery and will act as a bridge between AtomicMedia’s design and development teams, helping to shape product development and delivery processes whilst driving efficiency.
Ryan said: “It’s certainly been an interesting experience joining the team during the lockdown. It’s a testament to the processes that are already in place that have allowed me to seamlessly integrate with the team, and it’s very obvious that we have a team of talented designers, developers and project managers that are passionate about the quality of work that we produce for our clients.”
Zoe Dawes meanwhile has been appointed Product Owner. Joining AtomicMedia with 15 years of experience at JCB, Zoe has worked on a mixture of IT projects such as leading the JCB hub, LiveLink Fleet and Operator App. After Zoe was made redundant from JCB, AtomicMedia created the position of Product Owner for her, having worked so closely over the past five years. Since joining on the 4th July, Zoe has got to know multiple clients and how they operate, such as Vaillant, Dentons and Rolls-Royce.
Moreover, Matt Fisher has been named Project Manager. Matt joins Ryan Wright’s team as Project Manager, working across a range of continuous development projects for Rolls-Royce and JCB. Since starting this role Matt has been ensuring all agile processes are followed by team members, and helping to run Sprint Reviews.
