Industry

Computer Software

As Head of Product Engineering at Red Gate, I lead continuous improvement across engineering. I'm responsible for setting the technical strategy and maintaining a focus on the trends that shape our industry. I work with the tech leads and other communities of practice to relentlessly improve the way Redgate builds great software. Working with the wider team at Redgate, I've changed the way we recruit to focus on the work we do, rather than algorithmic wizardry. In my previous role I was technical lead on a team developing a large software-as-a-service system for legal risk management. Under my leadership, we incrementally moved towards web-services and created a solution that successfully scaled to many petabytes of information.

Hey, I'm available every Thursday at 3:00 PM (GMT)
