Teesside University Logo

As you may have guessed by now, my name is Sam Murray. I am 25 years old and live in a wonderful part of the world, Teesside, England.


I graduated from Teesside University in 2014 with a bachelors degree in Computer Science. During my degree I did a sandwich year at James Cook University Hospital as a data analyst. Whilst there I carried over what I learnt during my course into the workplace and made some great friends.


Upon graduation I secured a 12 month contract with Unasys who are based in Middlesbrough, England, where I worked on a Single Page Application using the Durandal framework and KnockoutJS, amongst other Javascript libraries.


Once my contract with Unasys ended I gained a permanent position with Trade Interchange, who are a company based in Stockton-On-Tees, England. During my time there I worked as a full stack developer on an ASP.NET Web Forms application.


Now, the next chapter of my career has started. I created my own company, QuikTech Ltd, as I want to pick and choose the projects that I work on. Developing cutting edge solutions with the latest tools is something that keeps me excited as a developer. Running my own company also means that I get to meet and work with some very talented people.
