At Future Platforms, we couldn’t operate without our talented team of Project Managers.
Wearing many hats, our Project Managers are the visionaries who articulate our clients’ goals to the wider team and make sure they’re delivered on time and to a high standard. Heather Hargreaves is one of our Project Managers, who is not only responsible for the day-to-day management and execution of our projects but who also ensures our clients are always satisfied with the end result.
What do you do at Future Platforms and what is your favourite part about your role?
I’m a Senior Project Manager at Future Platforms, mainly looking after our First Rail client. My day-to-day is managing multiple development teams, budgets and project plans, as well as liaising with our clients, stakeholders and senior management team. My favourite part of my role is working with all the different departments and my development team, and getting to try out the latest new technology and phones. It makes picking a new phone a lot easier.
Tell us a bit about your journey and how you got here:
I’ve always wanted to work in development, originally videogames, so I knew I wanted to work in a cutting-edge, fast-paced environment. Having worked as a Project Consultant for another digital agency for 5 years, I’d learned a lot but wanted a change. I wanted to find somewhere where I could grow my skill set as well as work with an awesome team. Future Platforms provided me the challenges and training I was looking for, as well as a fantastic team to work with. Going to work every day and loving the people you work with is a must!
What projects are you most excited to work on and why?
I love my current projects with First Rail. Managing multiple apps and different stakeholders means there’s always new technology and features for us to investigate and build. No matter the challenge or feature, having a team that you fully trust to manage and implement makes the day go by a lot easier and makes it exciting to work with.
What/who inspires you?
My team always inspires me. Their passion and dedication to their work, and desire to constantly learn new technologies and skills and find the best possible solution is amazing.
Finally, what would your superpower be?
Shape-shifting! Mystique is a highly underrated mutant, it’s the ultimate superpower.
