Meet The Team – Lewis

Introducing the newest and arguably the coolest member of Vital Hike, and yes, that is Billy Connolly he's jamming with in the picture attached.

Name: 

Lewis Davie

Job Title: 

Trainee Developer

Myers-Briggs Personality Type: 

ENTJ

What does that mean?

It stands for Extraversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judgement. Like most other ENJTs I’m known to be pretty organised, enjoying big-picture thinking and coordinating teams to complete projects. I’ve always been a fan of calendars and to-do lists.

Typically, what does your role entail?

Right now I’m still learning the ropes, since I just joined a couple of months ago. For the most part I’ve been working on small tasks related to front and back end development, and teamed up with the rest of the tech team to tackle the trickier stuff. The work is really varied, and can involve anything from adding a simple button to a website, to more complex tasks such as scripting and plugin creation.

Favourite thing about your job?

The people, hands down. I couldn’t ask for a better group of folks to work with. The owners Chris and Eddie place a high value on character, and it shows - there’s a real community spirit among the team. Couple that with the picturesque surroundings of Newport where we’re based, and you can see why I love the atmosphere.

What do you do in your spare time?

I’m extremely passionate about music, and when I’m not in the office, I’m rehearsing or gigging. I do a lot of session work, most notably playing bass for ST.MARTiiNS, who I’ve had some amazing experiences with. I also write and perform my own material with my band winterThieves.

Which 3 people, dead or alive, would you invite to a dinner party?

Groucho Marx for his wit, session bassist Carole Kaye for her extensive knowledge of the instrument, and DB Cooper, because I want to know who he was.

If you had to pick a theme tune for yourself, what would it be?

While I’d be tempted by a traditional fanfare, regrettably I think Weird Al Yankovic’s ‘White & Nerdy’ would ultimately be a better fit.

& finally, you walk into a bar, what drink do you order?


Definitely a French martini! I’m a cocktails guy, don’t judge me.
