Web development firm invests in new talent

Cardiff-based technology firm UpriseVSI has taken on two new members of staff to grow its web development and technical support teams.

The company, which offers web development and online booking services, has appointed Sophie Dilley as a technical support executive. She’s a sound technology graduate from the University of South Wales.

Previously, she worked as a legal secretary at a law firm based in the Welsh capital. In her new role, Sophie will be responsible for testing new websites and web applications.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Ellis has joined the company’s web development team as a front-end developer. He previously studied computer science and visual computing at Cardiff University.

Before joining UpriseVSI, Jonathan held front-end developer and software engineer positions at a plethora of technology companies across South Wales.

He will focus on front-end web development and styling, but will also support back-end development projects. The tech start-up said he’ll also assist it on iOS apps.

Gareth Rees Jones, managing director of the company, said his firm has experienced impressive growth in recent months. It’s investing in new talent to support new and existing clients.

“Having Sophie and Jonny come on board further enhances our already strong web development and technical support teams. We are continually growing our client base and are winning more and more online booking and large, complex web development projects,” he said.

“It’s therefore vital we recruit the right people with the right skills that will allow us to not only deliver best-in-class solutions but also to provide exceptional customer care post-launch. I’m sure that both Jonny and Sophie will add a valuable contribution to the business as we move forward.”
