Sam Wilde

Trainee Front-End Developer

I’m about 90% coffee and 10% Apple products. In work, I am a trainee front-end developer, learning from the basics, with the hopes of being on some of the larger projects in the future. Out of work, you’ll either find me cleaning my car or in a tent in the middle of nowhere.


"Being able to predict the future - all I want to know is when Liverpool are going to win the league."

Interview with Sam

Who is your role model?

My role model is Steve Backshall, he was the presenter of the TV show deadly sixty but is now a massive ambassador for the scout association and does a lot for preservation of wildlife across the planet. I know they say don’t meet your heroes, but I had a pint with the fella once, and I have to say, he’s a fantastic chap in person too!

What do you like to do when you're not at work?

I’m a keen photographer and videographer and try to find projects to work on when I have the time. I also like camping and take part in a lot of scouting so will always jump at the opportunity to get out and about.

What superpower would you like to have?

Being able to predict the future - all I want to know is when Liverpool are going to win the league.

Favourite place to visit?

I’ve not travelled to many places - although I’d love to - but I’d really like to re-visit Japan. The culture is great and everyone is extremely polite and the best thing, all of the trains run on time!

Do you have any hidden talents?

Unfortunately not, what you see is what you get, although I can light a fire with a battery and a chewing gum wrapper.
