Meet the Team: Josh
As our Systems Manager (soon-to-be Systems Architect), Josh has been a key member of the Fox Fam for five years.
Being our resident Tech and Data whizz, Josh owns our technical system and platform processes, ensuring that they are always meeting the needs of our business.
We chatted with Josh to learn more about his role at Candlefox.
Can you introduce yourself, and what your role is here?
Josh: I’m Josh, and I’m the Systems Manager at Candlefox. I started with the company back in 2015, having just graduated from university. In that time, my job has varied considerably, but I’ve always had a focus on data and tech. Currently, I am transitioning into the new role of Systems Architect, where I’ll be more focused on the way we use technology across the entire business.
What do you like most about working at Candlefox?
Josh: There are many things to like about working at Candlefox, but to pick one, it would have to be the opportunities to constantly challenge myself and learn.
How have you found working with the team?
Josh: We have a diverse set of skills and personalities at Candlefox, which will continue to expand as we grow. The more I’ve worked with different people in the company, the more I’ve realised there’s something to be learned from everyone.
What makes Candlefox unique?
Josh: Few companies are changing and growing as fast as Candlefox, which is such an exciting thing to be a part of.
What’s been your biggest achievement while working with Candlefox?
Josh: Depends how you define biggest, but doing a standup comedy routine at our Christmas party was one big achievement. It’s not directly work related, but it’s certainly something I’d never have considered doing if it wasn’t for Candlefox providing the opportunity.
The most surprising part of the job?
Josh: I spend a surprising amount of time writing notes to my future self. When I know it could be months until I look at something again, having a brief that I wrote for myself is a huge time saver. Highly recommend it.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
Josh: We are currently working on the processes for our new way of working. To me, this is all about enabling everyone in the company to contribute to the best of their ability, and having a reliable process for identifying the best ideas and then bringing them to life.
What are you most looking forward to over the next six months?
Josh: I am really looking forward to our first whole company planning day set to go ahead in January. It’ll be the first in a long time we’ll finally see everyone again in the flesh, and the first time meeting many new additions too.
