Charlie Gavey – Scrum MasterCharlie Gavey
Snapper
Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Marketing Management
Graduate Diploma in Computer Science

I work for Snapper, a company that helps people pay public transport fares. We build software to support travel smartcards, helping public transport users in Wellington and other cities around the world, including Dublin, Ireland and Riga, Latvia. My role is to help information flow smoothly through a team of software designers, developers, testers and business analysts.

I'm a Scrum Master which means I make sure information moves effectively through the team and through the rest of the business. I make sure that the team has the information they need to get the job done, and that we're sorting out anything that's slowing the team down.

This is the pathway I took to get to where I am now: Hutt Valley High School, final year subjects: Classics, Drama, English, History, Latin, Spanish, Statistics. University of Otago: Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Marketing Management; Graduate Diploma in Computer Science Victoria University of Wellington: Master of Innovation and Commercialisation (in progress)

I love working in a fast-paced environment, surrounded by people with different skill sets. Working for Snapper means I get to see the products we build in the hands of real customers every day.
