It was a great pleasure to work with the The Student Rooms during the summer of 2016. They are a great company full of talented people and a great energy.
I worked on their main product the student forum. Developed using Vbulletin over 10 years ago, the site was creaking a little due to the large volume of traffic to this popular student site. They had embarked on an ambitious project to split the codebase (they had diverged from standard Vbulletin) into smaller web-services written in Larvel. It was a fascinating project to work on.
