In November, we were very excited to add a new Project & Account Manager to our expanding Digital Team, and we’d like to introduce you to her…
Before joining Telescope, Saba worked in the fast-paced world of e-sports and wholesale distribution in the video gaming industry. Before this, she graduated in product design and worked in web development. The opportunity to get back into a STEM role, and one which is so hands-on was especially attractive to her.
Day to day, she works with our web developers, facilitating and delivering digital solutions. We’re so glad to have her on the team!
“My first few months have flown by! The office has a very open and relaxed atmosphere; everyone is kind and always ready to help. I really enjoy the opportunity to work on different projects and learn something new every day!"
Outside of work, Saba has a busy family life, and also loves to bake (you can see her amazing cakes on Instagram at @itcakesmehappy!)
Another of her hobbies is making soap, which she started just before the pandemic. Saba says: “With baking, the result is delicious, but soaping – especially if using the traditional methods with hot oils and lye – can be a tad dangerous! I had a bit of a dilemma on my hands trying to keep the supplies for each separate. But I have plans for a ‘soaping shed’ in the future! My soaping hobby is on hold until then…”
