Stephen Ashe joins Jaama as a graduate software developer having recently achieved a first class honours degree in computer science at Aston University. Whilst at university he completed a placement year with a small web applications company in Sydney, Australia.

His appointment comes as Jaama rapidly expands its software development team – two software developers were recently appointed along with a software tester – due to increasing demand for the company’s cutting-edge software solutions.

Stephen Ashe will follow Jaama’s new in-house training and development programme over the coming months, with more graduates expected to be recruited in different areas of the business, which now employs almost 70 people.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “We have wanted to launch our own graduate recruitment and training programme for some time. Now, due to our significant expansion and the requirement for a larger development team we have the capacity for mentoring.”

Jaama is based in Tamworth, Staffordshire, and Evans added: “We also wanted to support the local area and only sought graduates from local universities. Stephen lives in the town and has graduated from a local university.”
