A portrait of Laura Paine


Laura Paine

Digital PM at The Devel­op­er Society.

Hi, I’m Lau­ra, and I’m the Dig­i­tal PM at The Devel­op­er Soci­ety — the world’s first web dev and design agency that exists sole­ly for the ben­e­fit of not-for-prof­its. We work with some real­ly awe­some char­i­ties includ­ing Lumos, Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port, Oxfam and Help Refugees.

My back­ground is dig­i­tal — mar­ket­ing, comms, fundrais­ing — in the third sec­tor, in Sus­sex (Inter­na­tion­al Ani­mal Res­cue), Lon­don (Cru­el­ty Free Inter­na­tion­al, Men­cap and the British Red Cross) and Mozam­bique (Marine Megafau­na Foun­da­tion). Now I’m in Birm­ing­ham work­ing at DEV, lead­ing dig­i­tal projects, sup­port­ing PM process­es and busi­ness devel­op­ment, and being gen­er­al­ly blown away by how smart and cre­ative my col­leagues are.

I’m a Har­ry Pot­ter nerd, am the proud (though much poor­er and bro­ken for it) own­er of an insane ex-race­horse called Scar­let, and the most neu­rot­ic per­son I know. 

Though I guess I would say that, would­n’t I…?
