Lilyan Petrov

Name: Lilyan Petrov

What is your job position?
UI/UX Designer

Where have you worked/studied previously?
I have worked as Web Lead Designer and Digital Marketing Specialist previously  and I’ve studied at University of Chester BA in Advertising.

What does your role entail on a day-to-day basis?
Conceptualising mobile responsive user interfaces and experiences for a range of digital mobile platforms to be deployed across various mobile devices.

How have you found your time at Appitized so far?
It’s been really good so far, I get to work on a number of large commercial projects, which is great.

What are you hoping to bring to the role?
I’m hoping to try and increase the quality of the products that Appitized develops, by analysing the user experience of the applications, to help solve real world problems to the modern consumer.

Do you have something quirky about yourself?
Can’t think of anything quirky, I’m a pretty standard dude.


Nick Choudhury

Name: Nick Choudhury

What is your job position?
Business Analyst

Where have you worked/studied previously?
I graduated from the University of Nottingham with a Masters in Chemical Engineering and my most recent job was working at Deloitte as a Technology Consultant on their graduate scheme.

What does your role entail on a day-to-day basis?
Detailing requirements for an app for both the client and the user and then translating these into features and flows for the app. Following agreement on these, I document this all in a detailed functional specification which the developers can use to develop the code and to be test against.

How have you found your time at Appitized so far?
I’ve really enjoyed being part of a new and expanding team and I’m really excited with the direction that we’re going in and getting all our ideas incorporated into our processes.

What are you hoping to bring to the role?
I have a strong passion for apps and having developed some myself, I have experience in every stage of the app development life-cycle. I am hoping to bring this knowledge to ensure that business and user requirements are met by an app.

Do you have something quirky about yourself?
I’ve got a twin sister.


Mark Jones

Name: Mark Jones

What is your job position?
Project Manager

Where have you worked/studied previously?
I was previously owner of a software start up company of which was then sold to a larger American Company in the Silicon Valley, because of this, I juggled many different roles and spent my time being a managing director one minute, to being a sales person/project manager the next, whilst also overseeing software development and delivery…phew!!!

What does your role entail on a day-to-day basis?
My role is quite varied, which is also exciting, as no two apps we develop are the same, and there always different requirements that keep me on my toes. Overseeing the requirements capture, development and deployment of these apps is what I do on a day by day basis, whilst constantly trying to keep everyone happy!

How have you found your time at Appitized so far?
I’ve really enjoyed my role here so far, its a little less hectic than juggling multiple job roles as I have been in previous jobs (i’m happy I settled for Project Management), and it is a very nice and welcoming relaxed atmosphere in the office.

What are you hoping to bring to the role?
I’m hoping my experience can bring valuable input and assistance to all parts of the business.

Have you ever had any celebrity encounters?
I used to own a pub which brought about many celeb encounters, it seemed everyone wanted a free drink and a lock in. Its amazing how popular you become when you’re in control of alcohol 🙂
