Meet the FinLeap-Team: Lewis Cowper, Junior Front End Developer

Lewis Cowper holds the position of Junior Front End Developer at FinLeap. He joined the company builder in April 2016.

From the very first moment he spoke, it is evident that Lewis loves his job. He says that, in his opinion, a website’s most important feature is speed because pure performance is essential.

Lewis Cowper joined FinLeap in April 2016 after spending eight months at HitFox. He now holds the position of Junior Front End Developer and is responsible for making all web apps look good and work efficiently. Lewis learned about FinLeap through a friend who not only introduced him to the company builder, but also to Berlin as a whole. Lewis, who is from a small town in Scotland, says that moving to Berlin has been a shock thanks to the size of the city, but the change has been very interesting. Today we interviewed Lewis about his job, recent projects, and past experiences. What is your favorite part of working here?

Lewis: I love that I’m able to work with different ventures and influence them as they are defining their product and launching. How has your job changed since the very beginning?

Lewis: In the beginning, I had to learn how to do tasks quickly by speeding up my existing process. I also had to gain knowledge in multiple new tools. Now, I’m a part of many discussions that allows me to influence designs and how the product should feel based on my knowledge and experience. Can you describe a recent project?

Lewis: I have been working on getting a product to market and so I’m able to be part of discussions that are not purely technical, and can influence that process. How does FinLeap differ from your past experiences?

Lewis: At FinLeap I’m able to work on several projects so I have more variety – sometimes I take part in a project that has not been launched, and other times I work on a specific feature for an already-existing venture.

Lewis not only loves his job, but also enjoys video games and conferences where he can speak and learn from other developers.
