Over 23 years of experience working for a leading software house gave Andy a disciplined, time conscious and professional approach to software. Former clients range from multinational telecoms operators to small local businesses and he has a particularly strong background in Java, XML and C#. Add to this three years working exclusively with Android and you’ll understand why clients find Andy quickly understands their issues and translates their requirements into robust and efficient Android tools.
Andy’s passion for clear, intuitive user interfaces and efficient, maintainable, robust design place him perfectly to exploit the potential of Android.
As well as client work, Andy spearheads the development of ‘FormsOnMobile’, our mobile data gathering product.
A Rolls-Royce trained engineer turned chartered accountant, Ed moved into interactive multimedia in 1996 when interactive CD-ROMs were all the rage. He developed products for training, medical, pharmaceutical and software companies as well as a range of novelty consumer products.
In 1998 he combined the photo library business model with internet technology to form CartoonStock, one of the first image marketplaces on the web.
CartoonStock has grown steadily and diversified its business through two dotcom booms and busts and continues to lead its field, leaving Ed a seasoned e-business professional.
As Commercial Director, Ed makes it his business to ensure the right resources are applied to each project, that things get delivered on schedule, and that clients get a solution that fulfils, or hopefully exceeds their requirements.
A Biochemistry graduate from the University of Bath, Jamie’s specialism in bioinformatics and bias towards computing in his studies led him to join us in 2014 as a graduate mobile developer. He picks up new concepts with lightning speed and demonstrates as much aptitude and grounding in most areas of computing as any Computer Science graduate we’ve come across. He’s now an accomplished Android and iOS developer with back-end database and web development skills to boot.
As well as maintaining our top-trending Github repository ‘Android Bootstrap’, Jamie enjoys running, cycling and photography… and if you need anybody to identify antibiotic resistant DNA sequences, he’s your man!
A recent Physics graduate from the University of Bath (first-class degree no less), James’s interest and aptitude for IT and particularly mobile development led him to join us as a graduate mobile developer, currently specialising in Android but already picking up iOS skills.
