Shaw to Succeed

I never met a problem that cheese couldn't solve.

Introducing Software Developer, Samantha Shaw

At 23 years young, Samantha is a Salford University graduate with a degree in Multimedia & Internet Technology. She’s absolutely loving her time here so far.


When younger, Samantha’s dream job was to be a vet, however like me, she couldn’t stand the thought of having to put lovable animals down – why can’t there be a job for cuddling animals instead? She turned her sights to Software Development, and she’s very happy with the career path she has chosen.

Describing herself in three words, Samantha says she is quiet, helpful, and self-motivated.

She lives by Richard Branson’s quote:

If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later.

Meeting up with friends and catching up on her favourite TV series Game of Thrones are what Samantha spends most of her time doing; she also goes bowling every year on Easter Sunday with her family. It’s becoming a tradition, and a good one at that!

I asked Samantha, if you were stuck on a desert island with 3 people who would they be?

  1. My mum
  2. My dad
  3. My fiancé…If I don’t kill him first

I was told a few funny and embarrassing stories that Samantha has encountered.  From slipping over on ice, and being laughed at, to skidding all the way down the stairs of a bus. My favourite was probably when they boarded a train, handed in their ticket, and were told it was the wrong one. They ended up in Preston instead of Manchester.

Finally, Samantha provided us with a Joke of the day:

What happens when a frog’s car breaks down? – It gets toad!

Great getting to know you Samantha, and we hope you carry on enjoying your time here working with us.
