Hi, I am Andy and I am an experienced Chief Technology Officer, technical architect, board advisor, leader & technical visionary. I focus on building distributed applications & great teams. Over 12 years I've scaled three early-stage companies into successful SaaS businesses having worked within the web and software development industry for over 20 years. Based in Essex in the UK, I work in a remote capacity as Chief Technology Office for Platform Eight. As a consultancy, Platform Eight provides virtual CTO, technical and investment support services to early-stage companies.
My career started with me working for banks, actuarial and insurance companies. During my time with these company's, I focused on desktop financial application development. In 2007 I decided to move to working with smaller, web-based, companies. My last 3 companies have seen me developing SaaS applications providing B2B solutions. A product driven developer, I aim to develop consistent and cohesive solutions.
I have worked on projects for some of the world's leading company's, including:
As far as foolish discussions about editors go there is only one answer and that is Vim.
I have worked in a remote capacity for over 15 years full time and I am a believer in the benefits it reaps. I have built and managed remote teams with members across many time zones and continents. With the many excellent tools available today, managing a remote team is an easy task.
