In that time Jonah’s highlights have been attending two of our quarterly events, meeting colleagues face to face and being involved in charity work we do with Steps to Hope. Jonah is a great addition to Stellar we would be sad to loose him if he perused his dream job as a spaceman or zoo keeper.

Stuart Gilchrist

Stuart Gilchrist

In our Stellar Employee Spotlight for May 2022 we hear from Stuart Gilchrist, aka Gilky. Gilky initially joined as a test lead at IPSL back in 2019, and since then he has worked on a few of Stellar’s projects, but is now back in Stellar’s test team at IPSL and is our Staff Development Lead. Gilky was employee number 4 when he first started, and tells us his biggest highlight in this time would be being part of the team that helped Stellar seal their first big outsourced contract with IPSL in 2020. Safe to say, Gilky is one of our most well known characters here at Stellar Omada, and claims he could put John McDonald who is the PDC Darts Master of Ceremonies for Sky Sports out of a job, and we believe him!
