Declan Slevin

Test Lead


Having originally studied visual effects (VFX) at university, I got my first taste of software development when I was manually testing an industry-leading (Technical Oscar winning) digital compositing program, after graduating. After doing this for four and a half years, I decided it was time for a new challenge and joined Red Badger. I’m excited to get to know everyone and I hope to learn anything and everything I can about web development.

Signature skills

Breaking stuff, bullying developers, creative pursuits, cooking delicious food.

Achievements at Red Badger

The thing that changed me

"The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking" by Oliver Burkeman. Really helped me let go of useless anxieties and start enjoying life a lot more.
