From tinkering with cars to studying for his Master’s in Cyber Security, there’s a lot more to Daltrey’s Software Developer than writing code.
Here’s what Mamun has to say about working for Team Daltrey, his mysterious accent and more.
What’s your role at Daltrey?
What did you do before joining Team Daltrey?
I was involved in developing a legal management system for Sparke Helmore Lawyers. It’s designed to help automate workflows, processes, timelines and document generation for legal staff, from the start of a legal case right through to closure.
Prior to that I was developing an Android game called FrogLife. And before that I was working as a Software and Firmware Engineer at Haltech Engine Management Systems, who make engine control systems used in race cars worldwide.
What part of your role are you most excited about?
Oh, that’s a tough one! It’s hard to pick one aspect because I love it all: from working with a fantastic, super-intelligent team; to working on a phenomenal product that will bring about meaningful, positive change to the world; to the nitty-gritty of working on the code that makes the magic happen behind the scenes. It’s all exciting!
What does a typical day look like for you?
On a typical day, my activities involve designing and writing code, researching the challenges we face, discussing them with my immediate team and collating and documenting our shared knowledge.
What are you doing when you’re not at work?
I’m currently studying for my Master’s in Cybersecurity, so most of my evenings will be spent on that for the near future. Beyond study, my activities are spending time with family and friends and enjoying the great outdoors. I’m also a bit of a car nut and enjoy tinkering with performance cars – although that’s currently on hold while I complete my Master’s degree.
What’s a random fact we should know about you?
Apparently my accent sounds American, but I’ve never been to America! I put it down to having multiple American teachers growing up.
And last but not least, who would play you in a movie?
Probably Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire fame. Or Daniel Radcliffe. He’s gone on to play some rather interesting movies since his days as Harry Potter. You might think I’d pick Rami Malek since he did a fairly interesting job in Mr. Robot, a show that’s all about software and hacking, but no – I don’t quite relate to his character in that show. Very good actor though!
