Jake Cobley’s year in industry

A big welcome to Jake Cobley, who is joining us for a year on placement from Staffordshire University. Jake is studying for his BSc (Hons) Web Development degree. He joins iWeb as a Junior Front End Developer, working alongside our team of in-house designers and developers to help build Magento and WordPress websites.

iWeb employs a fair number of Staffordshire University graduates, including a number of past placement students. iWeb has developed strong ties with the local university, having collaborated on course material, delivered guest lectures and even given first year web development student’s a tour of our Stafford office.

When he was younger he aspired to be an ice cream man. However, picked up web development after wrapping his head around the joys of front end development at college. Jake is looking forward to building his knowledge and experience working with the Magento and WordPress platforms, particularly in an agency environment.

In his spare time, Jake has an interest in cars and motorcycles. However, despite having only been driving for two years, his car has been on the back of a recovery truck four times! He assures us each incident was due to a mechanical failure.
