Our People: Grant Forrester

Grant joined NCR Edinburgh in January 2011 and has worked on various projects in NCR's Financial line of business. He is currently a Technical Lead / ScrumMaster on the NCR Connections team - building the next generation HTML5-based ATM platform. Grant is a seasoned engineer having worked in the enterprise software field for many, many years. In his current role he has been able to augment his server-side Java knowledge with client-side HTML5 & JavaScript technologies.

Grant enjoys the opportunities that working at NCR affords: being able to work on products with global scale and reach, but also being able to see and use those same products himself every day. The NCR Edinburgh office's convenient location in the south side of Edinburgh is a distinct advantage for Grant, being easy to commute to, a short walk from the city centre and located close to the bars and restaurants of Edinburgh's university district.

Grant use to hold the prestigious title of the office's tallest person. However, due to recent recruitment he would struggle to make the top three. Outside of work, Grant enjoys hillwalking and cycling. He lives with wife and two children (Aidan and Holly).
