Hi, my name is Adam Page and I work as a software engineer at RDT.
I joined RDT in September 2011 as part of an apprenticeship scheme in software development.
For the first few years at RDT I got to learn a lot about the software lifecycle in general. As well as growing my own knowledge in software development I had ample opportunities to understand QA processes, requirements gathering and analysis, and client communications.
Since then I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing RDT grow in many ways and it has been great to be a part of it. I’ve worked with different teams on many projects, ranging from extending the elaborate feature set of RDT’s flagship product Landscape, to greenfield web development where I was involved from the earliest design stages.

Most of our delivery teams have about seven members, including developers, testers, a scrum master, a business analyst and a product owner. We keep our teams small as we’ve found it’s better for collaboration and communication and it keeps the quality of work high.
The product owner is responsible for what gets delivered to the client and the overall product vision. It’s their job to understand the product strategy, current market trends and what our clients want. (more…)
Hi, I’m Will O’Shea and I work as a team solution architect at RDT.
After graduating from university with a maths degree I started my IT career working for Lloyd’s of London. I had a good seven years there, which gave me a useful grounding in insurance knowledge. After that I had a short spell at Enron, followed by 11 years at Barclays Capital, before deciding to leave the rat race and find a more local job.
I joined RDT in 2014 as a senior software engineer and after a couple of years I became the lead software engineer in one of our agile teams. I then applied for the role of team solution architect (TSA) because I felt I would like to contribute more to the architectural direction of the company. (more…)
