Vanessa McIntyre

I began my career in 2013 within Consulting as a Qlikview Developer, utilising my degree in Interactive Multimedia Design to create compelling visualisations.

I won an internal innovation award for my work on an interactive proposal. I took time out in 2016/2017 to have my only son. Returning to the workplace in 2017, where I continued as a Qlik developer, moving into Qlik sense and custom visualisations. In 2018, I moved to my current role where I am a joint lead of our Belfast Data Visualisation team, a role that involves leading development of Data Visualisation projects, mentoring and training team members, growing the capability within the team and the team itself. Outside of my day job, I have taken on many public speaking opportunities to share my Data Visualisation knowledge, and my experience as a female in a technical role and the challenges this presents in the hope that it will empower others to strive to make the world of technology a more inclusive place.
