Welcome back to episode 19 of Meet the Clickers!
This week I caught up with Front End Web Developer and Chief of the ‘North Staffordshire One-Liners Association’ (unofficial), Jon Karic!
Hi Jon, hope you are well mate. I appreciate you taking time out of our day to get involved in Meet the Clickers. Could you tell the readers at home a bit about your start to Clicker life?
“I started at Click Dealer in 2016, a few weeks before Christmas so I got to experience the busiest time of the year in the web change team right away. I’ve now moved to the delivery team and our job is to build, test and launch new websites.”
Lovely stuff. Your current job title is ‘Front End Web Developer’, could you explain what this involves?
“As a Front End Web Developer, my job is to make sure websites are presented nicely to the end user. We have to understand how people interact with the website and build solutions to help the customer find their way from A to B in the shortest amount of time. In general, making their experience quick, easy, and fun.”
What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?
“Spending time with friends and family, a little partying or gaming and maybe even a nature walk on a Sunday.”
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
“It all depends on how much I won, I’d most likely save it for an early retirement!”
What movie title best describes your life?
If you could witness any event, past or present, what would it be and why?
“I’m quite an Astronomy fan so I’d love to see the moment the Big Bang happened, but only if I had a time machine too! I wouldn’t want to go all that way and it turns out to be rubbish.”
Haha, that is a very good point. Now, you are known in the web team for coming out with some classic ‘one-liners’, could you tell us a few of them?!
“‘I had some really nice beef, it was like chicken’ or ‘I haven’t had a bird poo on me for a while’ – I don’t remember saying these but others seemed to find them funny!”
Hahahahah, brilliant. What is the #1 most played song in your music library?
“I think Steal my Sunshine by LEN is probably my most played song in my library. It’s a must play in summer.”
What fictional place would you like to go to and why?
“Froopyland from Rick and Morty. Seems pretty fun!”
Rumour has it you think you’re a pretty fast runner and you reckon you could beat everyone at Click in a sprint race. Could you explain where you get your confidence from to make such a claim?
“My hair gives extra lift, making me lighter on the tracks. Seriously though, we will have to see in the great Click Race of 2018.”
Hmmm we will see! Last but not least, what is your favourite thing about working at Click?
“The people at Click are what make it what it is. Everyone is kind, funny and unique. Most of all they all give it 110% to achieve Click Dealer’s vision.”
Great stuff, Jon! Once again, thanks for getting involved, we hope everyone enjoyed the latest episode. Make sure you tune-in next week for episode 20!
