My latest creation is going to our security teams for approval and if approved will go into production for about 1000 colleagues in our claim department.

I built a system that will let colleagues upload cftv / dashcam footage from customers against an insurance claim number and it will then convert any video format to mp4 so it can be viewed in the built in html5 viewer for claims processing.

Right now the vids are manually converted and put on CD and kepr in a safe so only the local team can do the work, this will mean any claim team (we have 3 sites with claims) can work on a claim making it much much more efficient.

I case it isn't known I work for an insurance firm on the south.


Do you worry much that one single typo would compromise the whole thing and potentially bring down the company?


Hahaha I tend to spell stuff wrong but I don't make that many typos when writing code, not in how the code works anyways, occasionally there are odd variable names I have to go through and update due to misspelling and typoing in the variable name.

Had a call from an agency who want to put me forward for a job with the worlds third largest Ice Cream manufacturer, for at least £500/year more than I'm on now, but a commute of a bit less than 40 miles rather than the 75 miles I have now, plus a strong prospect of international travel.
And another agency who are interested in putting me forward for a job as a technical lead for a global training company in charge of a team split across the UK and USA for at least £1,500/year more than I'm on now and a commute of 20 miles.

Aye go on then.

Well they're only putting me forward at the moment, no guarantee of even getting an interview yet.

Not sure which one I'd prefer really.

The "Ice Cream one" is a bit less money and further to commute, but sounds like it'll have more international travel to places all over the world which is something I've always wanted a job doing.
The other one is more money, closer to home and has potential for getting towards managerial positions, but sounds like travel would be limited.

I feel like you're missing the key factor here
