Meet John, our Full Stack Developer

John delivers software solutions which help us serve our customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. Here's what makes him tick.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I listen to the Grime Daily playlist on Spotify a lot.

What are you watching?

The Haunting.

What are you geeking out to?

All of my computer games.

What's your favourite quote?

"I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it" - Mark Twain.

Tell us two truths and one lie about yourself.

I used to DJ under the name 'DJ Afterbirth'.

I used to compete in Mixed Martial Arts.

I can speak Swahili.

What's your favourite brand?

I'm not that brand loyal, but I do love tech. Most of the tech I have is Samsung.

What's your favourite website/app?

At the minute it's Monzo - a banking app I can actually do useful banking on. Maybe this should be the answer to my 'geeking out' question too!

What comes to mind when you hear the word 'mortgage'?

Home. Getting my first mortgage was a huge deal for me. I had always moved around a lot when I was renting, so getting a mortgage was the first time I felt I had a home.

And what comes to mind when you hear 'Mojo Mortgages'?

People first, and by that I mean customers and employees.

What's your fave thing about working here?

There's a real can-do attitude: new ideas are encouraged and we're all willing to try them out. Also, being able to wear shorts to work.

What animal are you most like?

My dog, Ice Cube, is my spirit animal. He has also confirmed to me that I am his spirit human.

Thinking of joining Team Mojo? We'd love to have you. See our current roles here.
