IIQ/Paget Brown UK

Product Developer

At Paget-Brown, due to the intimate start-up environment, employees were given high levels of responsibility. I was tasked to streamline the client onboarding process, designing the company website and devising the ‘Get Involved’ sign up page. Additionally, by analysing the 2018 GDPR II EU regulation and the 2018 Data Protection Act, I was able to establish a novel procedure that removed paperwork from the previously tedious physical process of collating data. With the aim of simplifying the registration process I directed our web developer to set up a new more aesthetically pleasing website with an easy sign-up page. This involved several tasks: integrating an SSL certificate to make our website secure, using a third-party e-signature software and installing the necessary cookies so that our marketing team could determine how our clients were directed to our service. My effort to produce a user-friendly registration page was ultimately rewarded as our sign-up rate increased fifty-fold during my time at the company.
