Hi, I’m Phil Auge and I work as a Product Owner at RDT in Kings Hill.
I joined the company as a business analyst in April 2017. I come from an insurance background and previously worked for one of RDT’s clients.
After studying history at university with a view to becoming a history teacher, I realised didn’t want to do that and went to work for an insurance company in Maidstone. This lead me into a varied career in insurance, where I started off answering the phones for a small direct book of business and progressed to taking broker underwriting referrals. I’ve also worked as a business analyst, a business intelligence analyst and a project manager.
Having worked for more than five years as a project manager, I moved to RDT last year to work as a business analyst in the Agile team supporting the Markerstudy implementation of Equator. The change was a fantastic opportunity for me and allowed me to grow my experience in both the software development environment and as a supplier rather than a customer.
With the support of the Agile teams I’ve worked with at RDT I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a number of new software house integrations, the take up and roll out of service fabric across our Equator products, third party enrichment solutions and service security. During this time I have also moved into a product owner role and am relishing the challenge of working with our internal and external stakeholders to continue to make RDT’s products market leaders.
Outside of work my real passions are music, cooking and Spain. These often converge and I spend plenty of time at the weekends cooking Spanish food while listening to David Bowie and The Beatles.
