Meet Sophie

Sophie Rimington-Pounder

Developer & Singer

Hi everyone, I’m Sophie.

I’m very happy to come on board with the Encore team as their latest technical recruit. I’m a Jazz-singing software developer and can’t wait to get stuck into using tech to better the musical lives of so many!

I come from a varied background. I spent a couple of years as a technology journalist in Beirut, Lebanon. I subsequently came back to England to focus on being a developer fulltime by completing a coding bootcamp, Makers Academy, in London.

It’s exciting to join Encore in its early stages and help shape the technical side of the business. As the site traffic increases we’ll be working hard to improve the functionality for all users.

Currently listening to: Abdel Kader – Live a Bercy 1,2,3 Soleils. This whole album is incredible, as it was recorded at a unique event in Paris, but this is my favourite track by a long shot!
