Introducing Jason Smart

We’re excited to introduce the newest member of our development team, Jason Smart. In this article, we will find out more about his background and interests.

Jason, could you describe your role in 50 words or less?

My role is to work on both the front end and back end of applications. Turning the clients dreams into reality.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?

After finishing college, I decided to go into Website Design / Software Development (after developing since I was 13 years old). Over the years I have worked in a variety of areas including telecommunications and fintech. In my spare time I like to follow my local Rugby League team and spend time with my family.

What has been the hardest problem you’ve had to solve so far in your career?

Building an MVP for a virtual events platform on a really short deadline for presold events.

And what has been most interesting or satisfying project you’ve worked on in your career so far?

Again – the above. I really enjoyed the stack I was using (Laravel, Laravel Livewire, Laravel Nova).

What made you decide to take the opportunity to join Filter, and what excites you most about the work so far?

After talking to Oliver and Paul, it was the family first ethos that really drew me to the company having a small family myself. I’m excited to be able to work with the technologies that I love and develop my skills further.

What’s your current remote working set-up like?

Currently using an Apple MacBook Pro M1 Pro with a Samsung Odyssey G7 – 49” curved monitor. All setup in my home office.

What technology trends or developments are you most excited about, looking ahead into 2022?

I’m very excited to see how AI & ML will impact development and websites.
