Ben - Account Manager

I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of York. I took on a couple of internships after graduating, but when I came to looking for a full time career I knew I wanted to work for a technology firm with lots of potential. I came across TPP when I saw them in the Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for, so I knew they were a cut above the rest. I decided to apply when I did more research into how they were expanding internationally, working in two areas that were of great interest to me - technology and healthcare.
The work I’m doing here provides everything I wanted out of a career: Continued learning and development, the opportunities to build relationships and having a mixture between both technical and commercial work. At the moment I’m mostly working on the Middle-east projects, trying to expand TPP into the markets out there. It gives the work a real feeling of a ‘start-up’ company, and it’s been really exciting to see the company grow thanks to some of the relationships I’ve helped to build.
My work allows me to work autonomously, giving me the ability to manage my own workload and take on more responsibility than at any other firm I have had experience with. I’ve led meetings that I wouldn’t have even been invited to anywhere else – meeting multiple Ministries of Health, leaders of Public Health England and presenting to boards of directors.
The surrounding area of Leeds is great for maintaining all my hobbies. The nearby Yorkshire Dales is great for people like me who love getting outdoors and Leeds City Centre has a great music scene for attending gigs, or listening to live bands in one of your local bars.
Working at TPP has given me the confidence to do business anywhere in the world, taking me to places that I would never have the chance to see otherwise.

Daisy - Business Analyst

I studied Biomedical sciences at UCL and applied for TPP after graduating. The Business Analyst role seemed perfect for me as I’d always been interested in the healthcare industry and the work they are doing in China offered the chance for me to use my language and cultural background.
In my team, we analyse requirements from users and scope the corresponding development requests to deliver a better product. Since joining, I’ve loved getting involved in international projects in cities like Ninghai and Huizhou as well as working on a Wechat appointment booking website. My current project is really exciting as I’m working on our patient App which will improve patient engagement with their healthcare provider.
My favourite thing about the job is that I face different challenges every day, using my problem solving and language skills to tackle these alongside an intelligent and helpful team. We also get a great range of perks: an amazing salary, 2 weeks off at Christmas and annual sailing trips.

Moji - Software Developer

I studied Engineering at Cambridge, and started at TPP straight after graduating. I really enjoy coding, so I decided to look for jobs in software development. TPP stood out to me in my job search was that it wasn’t just about making software, but making software that had a huge impact on people’s lives.

Working at TPP actually feels more relaxed than university. Because of the way uni was structured, I never really had “time off”, as I had to carry on studying even through the holidays. At TPP, there’s no pressure to continue working past the closing time, and we are not allowed to take work home. This means that you can spend the day being focused on working efficiently, and then truly have the evenings and weekends off. Also, even though the company is split into lots of little teams, it still feels like one big team - we all help each other and are accountable to each other.

Since joining TPP, I have worked on a number of projects. Every couple of months, we change teams, and that certainly keeps things exciting! My first project involved developing machine learning tools to help with the early detection of cancer. I’m now working to improve healthcare in prisons.

The extracurricular side of TPP is great. I enjoy playing the guitar, and TPP actually has a free guitar lesson once a week, which I go to, and it’s been really useful.

    Product Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TPP (Leeds, England) in July 2020.

    Interview

    As a person with almost 10 years industry experience, I am appalled at this interview process. If you don't read this whole thing, please just trust me and do not waste your time here. I'm yet to receive an offer, and very happy for it to stay that way.

    After an initial 'chat' with a rushed and completely uninterested interviewer who asked nothing about my experience or interest in the role, I was asked to complete a problem solving exercise. After this it was my turn to ask questions, of which I had a few. We were quickly disrupted by someone asking how long we were going to be - the interviewer replied '2 minutes' (!!) and proceeded to roll his eyes when I asked another question. I was then asked to wait for 20 more minutes whilst he went to find out if anyone else was to interview me. I wish I had left there and then because things were about to get 100 times worse....

    Next I was lead to a room with a Director & the C*O. They started by telling me they hadn't even had the common courtesy to have read over my CV so needed a moment to read over it. I'm not quite sure why they bothered as what followed was a series of mental maths questions fired at me despite being told it has nothing to do with the role, they just like to put pressure on you - I'm talking square routes, cubed routes, dice probability etc etc...not sure what this has to do with the responsibilities of a Product Specialist, but make sure to brush up on your 27 times tables LOL!

    The 'interview' finished with them informing me it was a 2000/1 chance that I was sat in front of them. They may consider me 'lucky', but I certainly don't - I left feeling angry, embarrassed and belittled.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't expect to be asked anything about your experience, or why you are interested in the role or the company, or anything about yourself at all - they want to belittle you by asking you to perform problem solving exercises with zero relevance to the job and if you're 'lucky' enough to get through to meet very senior management they will fire continuous mental maths questions at you verbally, in an extremely intimidating manner. Trust me, don't bother wasting your time.   Answer Question
