Brian Rea

Role: Senior Developer

Originally graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2000, and held a number of research and teaching roles for them before moving on to a technical development role at a national research centre in Manchester.

As my role evolved away from the software engineering aspects I loved and more into paperwork and management I chose to look for a new challenge and joined a start-up company looking to develop tools to assist in the building management processes. Following on from an enjoyable two years there, I found this great position at sunshine.co.uk combining both my coding interests and passion for web design. I get to work with a great team of people, doing a job I love with all the fun challenges that keep it interesting and different every day. Living the dream.

Favourite sunshine.co.uk Holiday Destination
Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote. A great place to unwind, lovely beach in the day and quiet but plentiful entertainment in the evenings.

What do you do at weekends?
Watch film/tv marathons with friends, although I have been known to partake in live action role playing, often better known as 'cross-country pantomime'.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
An architect, clearly inspired by my love of Lego, but then I found computers.

What's your brew?
Tea, white with one sugar please, in the biggest cup we have.

That's a nice job title, what do you actually do?
Help to keep the site running, and bring in new user friendly features, all whilst making sure it works with an ever expanding range of technologies including smart phones and tablets.

Best thing on telly?
Game of Thrones, big budget fantasy drama. Alternatively, any of the newish US legal dramas Scandal, Suits, Boss, etc.

Worst thing on telly?
'Constructed Reality' programmes, or whatever they call themselves these days. With the exception of Goggle Box, which shouldn't be watchable television, but strangely works.
