Jon Downing, iOS Engineer

Jon joined Popsa in the Summer of 2018 and helped rebuild our iOS app from the ground up.

How would you describe what you do at Popsa?

I work with our various teams to ensure Popsa is the best iOS app for printing your life stories!

What does your typical working day look like?

My day usually begins with a brief standup meeting with the various tech teams. I feel it's very important to have an understanding of what everyone's up to and what our shared goals are.

Then the real work can begin, whether that's working with the team on building new features, reviewing code, troubleshooting or researching! It's a fun and varied job.

What's your favourite thing about Popsa?

The people. I love working with everyone at Popsa, they're smart, driven, and truly want to do their best work.

What is your proudest moment at Popsa?

Releasing Popsa 3.0 was a real buzz, we'd all put a lot of work into getting it out and I was proud of the result!

What do you like to do outside of work?

Swimming, cycling, socialising (particularly in pubs), travelling, to name but a few.

What’s your favourite food spot around the Popsa Soho office?

You can't beat a good Pret, but when I feel like splashing out, I go to The Kati Roll Company, delicious!

What is your favourite part of your job?

Problem solving. I'm lucky to work in a profession where your brain is constantly exercised.

Something people don't know about you is…

I flew a plane solo before I could drive a car 😊
