Here are some simple ideas for your business to become more environmentally friendly

ESG reporting is top of mind for organisations in 2022 and beyond. But who is ready?

While larger organisations are appointing heads of sustainability or head of impact many smaller organisations are struggling to keep up and are feeling overwhelmed.

There are many ways businesses can become more environmentally friendly. Some small changes include:

Individuals can also contribute to sustainable procurement and ESG initiatives by:

We caught up with Pulse Market's busy Senior full stack developer Jose Manuel Fernandez this week to discuss the process of getting into software engineering and some exciting projects he has been working on.

Josema - Senior Stack Developer

Tell us a little about you? (your background, qualifications, which town/city your live etc) 

Hi! 

My name is Josema, I am 27 years old, I am from Spain, and I live in the wonderful city of Sevilla, in the land of Olive oil, Andalusia, in the south of Spain. 

I am a software developer with 5 years of professional experience, but with more than 10 years coding.  

I quit university and studied something more real world studies instead of theoretical, something like a Bachelor’s degree called Superior Degree, a 2 years computer science program. 

I lived for 4 years in Dublin, but I moved back home due to the pandemic and thanks to support from Pulse.  

How did you end up in software development? Where did you start?   

Honestly, it was my mom! I have always been hooked on how videogames work and how do websites work, so as I grew up, I kept increasingly interested on the “how’s” of how things were done, and I just ended up reading about coding. When I was 14, I bought a book from the 90s on how to build a website in HTML and CSS and ended up creating a black and white retro website and was absolutely flabbergasted about it. 

When I was younger, I did not think you could make a serious career out of the web industry, I always thought that you could only be a genius developer, so when I had to choose a career, unbelievably, I was between History, Lawyer, and Physics. My mom made me snap out of it and forced me to study what she always knew I wanted to study! 

What do you love about development work and your role as a full stack developer?   

What I love about developing is the art side of it. You have an objective, a vision if you will, whether is something big as creating a whole business or just a simple feature your website needs. This vision then leads to planning and thinking, then you design and finally you make it real through coding.  

You just made something intangible become tangible, and that is art. Not as fancy and awesome as creating a statue or a building, but still followed the same artistic path of creation. 

I always thought of me as a thinker and not a coder. I am sure that there are people who can write code as good as I could in a shorter time, however they usually spend less time thinking about the whole picture than I do. I love that side of the development process. And that is precisely what I do for Pulse and what it is required of me, think about 1 or 2 step ahead of what we are developing to get to the place we want to in a faster time, with a better quality and way more stable than the rest of start-ups. 

What projects have you enjoyed working on the most and why?  

I think the project I loved the most is the Asset Repository from our Pulse website. Designing how virtual files and folders will behave and must exist in our Databases to replicate a file explorer that everyone has in their computers was quite challenging and fun. 

What have you been proud of to date (personal or professional)?   

The asset repository! We had so many sessions with the team and so many options on how we could implement re-usability, folder structures and so many head scratches that when we were done, and we had the plan written down I was so happy. The result is something to be proud of. 

What advice would you give to somebody who wants to get into software development?   

Choose a technology that you think you might like, say Typescript, stick with it until you understand what you are typing and where you are writing things.  

Ask, do not be afraid of asking, but always research first. We could not do our day jobs without Google and everything you are facing has been already answered and solved in forums. 

And lastly, quoting my coding teacher, “in coding, everything is an object. Yes, really, everything”. You can think about a movie, a movie theatre, or a movie shop, but all of them will be in their tiny imaginary capsule, contained within it, with their own properties, because all of them are objects 

Anything you are excited about coming up?   

On a professional level I am quite excited to see how we can build the foundation on Pulse and how can we become what we should, a billion-dollar company! 

On a personal level, I am reading the whole Brandon Sanderson fantasy universe of books; I am quite thrilled about it, loving all of them and wanting to finish all of them so I can know more about it! 

Let’s get to know you a little better Josema with a quick fire round questions 

  1. What's can you see out of your window? 

A typical ‘andalusian’ patio. 

  1. What celebrity would you like to meet for a cup of coffee? 

Matt Welsh from While She Sleeps or Brandon Sanderson. Even the 2 of them at the same time, it would be a cool experience. 

  1. Where’s your favourite place in the world? 

I don’t think I have a favourite place in the world right now. I’d say my home as boring as it sounds! 

  1. What was your favourite subject in school? 

Physics – yep, I know... 

  1. What’s your favourite music genre? 

Heavy metal – yep, I know

A game developer 

  1. What’s your favourite book, video game, movie or Netflix boxset?

Diversity makes for a great workplace environment.

John Ellis, COO

As a co-founder of Pulse Market, it was a personal desire to be part of a diverse, dynamic and energetic company who had sustainable and ethical business practices at its core. Thankfully my co-founders all agreed, and we set off on an amazing journey.

How did we build our exceptional team? We have utilized existing networks and contacts in different countries. We have been introduced by Enterprise Ireland into their Embassy network who have been fantastic at local introductions into new jurisdictions, and we have benefited significantly from this relationship. We have been introduced to different types of firms including recruitment, consultants, solicitors, accountants, and legal firms. Enterprise Ireland have been a huge source of support and assistance as we grow.

When we recruit, we look for a cultural fit in the first instance from any prospective candidate followed by an appropriate role-based skills assessment. Background checks including references etc. are processed for all candidates. This approach has been very successful to date and has helped build a great team.

Communication is key to a successful business, and we are no different. We utilize the MS365 suite to communicate, plan, create tasks and more. We talk on a daily basis, use Teams for calls and messaging.

We have a monthly Town Hall for company updates and for each team to share a story and a monthly social event where we can let our hair down and have fun.

Did you know we have 15 people working for Pulse from 7 countries and speak 13 different languages between us? You can meet the rest of our growing team

At Pulse Market we are about making people smile while doing business. We do this by giving you the tools designed to do your job easily on an online platform that is beautifully designed.  

As buyers and sellers log in to Pulse Market the first thing, they comment on is how beautiful the design is and how easy it is to use. It is no secret among the Pulse Market team that this is down to our talented designers working closely with our incredible team of software developers. Together they have designed and developed an online platform that is a joy to look at and a joy to use.  

One reason first impressions are so positive is that it feels familiar and therefore comfortable to navigate. This is because our designers haven’t over complicated functionality instead, they incorporated familiar conventions from good web design such as logo position, web friendly fonts, navigation buttons and many more subtle details.  

The secret to the positive user experience on the platform is the designers work closely with our software developers to ensure the design not only looks beautiful but it seamlessly works in harmony with the back end of Pulse Market Platform.  

The way the developers and designers work together is like an Olympic team carefully planning in great detail every step, every milestone and then working together in ‘sprints’ progressing each stage rapidly.    

P.S You can get to know Mariana and Taise in a quick fire Q&A where they talk about their training, their time with Pulse Market and some fun facts too. 

We have an amazingly talented team from all around the world and we’d love you to get to know them. So that’s why we’ve asked Taise, our amazing UX and all things graphics a few questions to discover more about what makes her tick.

Taise Lopes UX/UI Designer for Pulse Market

Hey Taise tell us a little about you? (your background, qualifications, which town/city your live etc)

I have my background in Graphics Design, working as a Designer for +8 years and with UX/UI Design for over 5 years. Recently, I completed a Master in Computing Science in Ireland. I live in Dublin city centre for the past 4 years and I am originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Why did you want to work for Pulse Market?

I met Pulse through CCT College, where I completed my Master. They were looking for a UX/UI Designer who could understand the project and turn it into a real product. Had my first meet with Michael O’Shea and then David Lewis who presented me the project and I started working as an intern. After a month, things were going incredibly well and I was contracted. I am so happy to be part of this team.

What does a typical working day look like for you?

I start my day with a UX daily meeting with Mariana. We discuss what should be done during the day. When we have to create a completely new flow, we open a tool called InVision and we start discussing and drawing the flow in low-fidelity based on business requirements. After that, we validate the flow with business and developers’ team. Once the design is validated, we start creating the UI on Figma. During my day, I have a couple of meetings with the team too.

What do you like most about your role with Pulse Market?

Designing a product with user centred approach is on the things that I most like. Creating amazing interfaces, having new discoveries about the product and its features and being part of a creative team with Mariana, makes my work much more pleasure.

What is your biggest achievement to date (personal or professional)?

My biggest achievement I think is being where I am. I left my home country 4 years ago and my only objective in that time was to learn English and to have an abroad experience for about 8 months. Being in Ireland all this time and having the possibility to work in a multi-cultural company doing something that I love is definitely my biggest achievement.

Tim Murphy, Chairman

A Boston emigrant in Dublin, Tim has a long career in financial services, including in senior executive positions at IBT (now State Street), BNY Mellon and DMS Governance. More recently, Tim has focussed on corporate finance and investing in & supporting start-up fintech firms. As our new Chairman, Tim is looking forward to challenging the senior team at Pulse and helping them to build a truly scalable, global success. As an avid sports enthusiast, Tim is a loyal fan of his home-town teams of all stripes. 

Cathal O'shea, Client Services Analyst

A Corkonian stranded in Dublin, Cathal joins older brother, Michael for the 2nd time, having previously worked with him in Delta Index. Cathal is a bit of a “start-up junkie”; he has worked at several smaller firms, including financial markets trading firm, Aldabra, and is very eager to roll up his sleeves at Pulse and to ensure our clients have a loud voice always in what we do! He likes playing football, watching movies and has a new passion for all things Greek, fresh from recent nuptials to his Greek bride, Petra! Top of their list, once Covid allows, is to get to Greece for their deferred wedding celebration. 

Nina Krsticevic, Product Analyst

Former Dublin resident for many years, Nina has moved back to her roots and is currently living in the city of Osijek, Croatia. Nina has worked with RegTech firm, CSS initially as a client service analyst and then as a Project Manager, where she was mentored by our own John Ellis. Passionate about innovation and creative work (from big things such as building the Pulse Marketplace platform to making her own furniture and decorations). A keen cook who likes nothing more that baking and eating chocolate cake :). Nina also loves to sing, dance and play, but only because she has a 7 month old baby. 

Nina previously worked with both John’s and Michael at CSS and is really looking forward to re-joining them in this exciting journey and creating a product that everyone will love.
