Julie Rollinson

What is your role and how long have you been in it?

I joined the User Experience team at Defaqto at the beginning of March 2020 as a UX Designer. My role is to produce creative designs for our software, in particular Defaqto Engage. Bringing our ideas to life in a modern and easy-to-use way.

What made you want to join Defaqto?

Defaqto offered me the opportunity to work in a new sector and to develop and learn new skills. Being in a friendly and supportive environment was also a priority. Throughout the interview process, I felt Defaqto ticked all the boxes and I was excited to join.

What do you like most about working at Defaqto?

The people. Across all the teams there is such a diverse range of specialisms and expertise. Everyone is very helpful and collaborative.

For me, getting to know my colleagues was also important. I joined Defaqto at the start of a pandemic which posed new challenges for everyone. Despite this, people went out of their way to be so welcoming, friendly and supportive.
