Staff Spotlight: Meet our Software Developer, Rick

This month in the spotlight we're introducing Rick Fletcher, our Software Developer

What brought you into the world of market research?

I've been working in IT for a number of years in various different sectors. I was looking for something exciting and new, and Omnisis were developing a brand-new software project which caught my interest.

At the time I had very little knowledge in market research, but I really liked the vision of what Omnisis wanted to achieve.

I've been here for a few years now and I've seen both the original project and organisation grow to where it is today which has been really rewarding

If you were stuck on a desert island and you could bring three people to join you, dead or alive, real or fictitious, who would you pick? 

That's an interesting question. I’d bring someone with the survival skills from centuries ago, skills that have been lost in the modern world. It would be fascinating to see how people of yesteryear lived and survived.

I'd also bring my good friend Matt. We would be constantly laughing and joking and enjoying a beer in the sun. This island has beer, right?

Finally I would bring Sir Isaac Newton. I would love to listen to a genius from a time that's so different from today. I'd not only to be amazed by such a brilliant mind but also be able to share how the modern world has developed since then

Describe your ideal weekend?

My ideal weekend would probably be a city break somewhere I haven’t been. I find different cities and cultures fascinating.

I love spending time checking out the city's attractions, landmarks, buildings, that kind of thing, and of course the local cuisine.

I'd probably spend the rest of the time relaxing before taking the journey back home

Favourite film, book and podcast? 

My favourite film is The Shawshank Redemption - I've probably seen it more than any other film!

I used to enjoy reading horror books, but this has been replaced with less-interesting books to improve my skillset. The joys of getting older...

I don't listen to podcasts as much as I should, but when I do it's usually some of my favourite electronic music artists. I was quite into electronic dance music in the early 2000's.

I do listen to YouTube quite a lot when I'm working and relaxing. There is a French brand called Cercle which produces electronic music experiences in jaw-dropping locations.

If you like electronic music, I would highly recommend checking them out.
