As part of my first professional role, I worked on a piece of software called vPlace for Willis Towers Watson, a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company. vPlace is a one-stop online workplace that enables a range of Willis Towers Watson's leading insurance software products, and other supplementary actuarial programs, to be delivered in a Software as a Service (SaaS) IT environment.
During my two years at WTW, I spent the vast majority of that time helping to build vPlace from the ground up as a full stack engineer. It utilises an AngularJS frontend and C#/.NET backend hosted in Microsoft Azure. As part of this project, I also worked with technologies such as Azure Service Bus and Serverless Functions.
