Co-founder and Director.
Running the business with Tom, I’m often talking to clients and working out how best to help them. I’m also there for our team, ensuring they can provide their best service.
My IT career spans decades. I started as a programmer, then provided pre-sales support, ahead of moving to project management and implementation.
My favourite projects are those with the biggest client impact. I love identifying the problem early on and experimenting with proof of concept. It turns out I’m good at developing complex ideas in my head – to the benefit of our clients.
When you’re looking to overcome software challenges, don’t focus on the IT solution. Instead, focus on your ideal outcome. We draw from many business sectors and often create a concept you’ve not considered.
Playing the bass guitar and Derbyshire dog walks are how I switch off when I find time. Not often enough, I’m told.
Co-founder and Director.
I spend my days talking to clients, understanding their business, and researching technologies that unlock opportunities – now and in the future. I also help to run Redox.
Truly understanding what makes software a success for all concerned, my brief civil engineering career gave way to software development. Solving problems in code was more fun. My career then spanned everything from business development and idea generation to coding and testing.
I love making client problems go away with software. And I’m in awe of our clever people – they’re more than the sum of their parts.
To create your ideal software, think holistically about your future business. Then design your processes and software together, focusing on value and return, not cost.
My enduring passion is cycling. I even lived in the French Alps to develop my mountain biking skills in my spare time. Hills and forests are favourite escapes for me.
Senior Software Engineer.
Helping with feature development and back-end processes, my knowledge spans many programming languages and techniques.
My first programming experience was an international e-commerce site. Moving to a new company, I then maintained legacy systems and developed multi-platform applications for time and attendance software. Next came mobile apps and tablet software for engineering equipment and calibration management.
Challenging projects always grab me most. They’re a great opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other. That blend of skill also delivers the best client outcome.
When deciding how to take your software forward, listen to everyone. Often, great ideas come from someone else’s thought process.
I’m an avid gamer and a secret Pokémon lover. Bizarrely, I’m also proud to own the first Sega Dreamcast console ever brought to the UK.
Senior Product Designer.
I design and code the bits of software you see, rather than the backend you don’t. I also work to improve the user experience of the software. Everyone puts their design and styling questions my way.
Previously, I worked on projects for major high street brands. This included bespoke, internal training systems and video production. Working closely with big-name clients, I was always involved in the consultation stages of every project.
Involved with a variety of Redox projects, I’m amongst a great bunch of people. We’ve all got different skills and experiences to help each other succeed. It’s a great place to work.
To create effective software, you should talk in-depth with the people who will be using it. Successful software must also look great so it’s a pleasure to use.
Outside work, I love designing and building electric guitars. My next one will be made entirely from junk!
Designing and writing software applications at Redox, my IT career started in 2008 following my first Masters degree in IT and Computer Science (I have a second Masters in IT too). Since then, I’ve written software for many companies. And now, Redox clients.
Greenfield projects are my favourite. It’s great to start at the beginning and scope how it will evolve. That said, previously started projects give me valuable insight into other developers’ coding style. I’m a great believer in continual learning.
I love working at Redox. Everyone’s incredibly helpful and we all listen to each other’s ideas. Every day I’m growing professionally.
Creating effective software doesn’t happen overnight. You must keep going once you find the right direction. It’s hard work. And that’s why we’re here.
When not writing software I’m a classic family man. Spending time together is important and we’re often watching a movie or happily chatting.
Quite simply, I write software that helps our clients achieve their needs. Constantly looking at new technologies, I want to deliver the best solution every time.
My career has always involved technological development. At Fountains (part of the OCS Group) I helped make everyone’s jobs easier, driving efficiencies and eliminating paper-based processes. And whilst at Retail & Asset Solutions Ltd, my love of programming became clear.
Redox is a great place to work. Everyone’s driven to better their skills and deliver more for our clients. And there’s so much knowledge to draw from amongst us.
I believe in creating simple solutions. It’s easier for you to manage and achieve buy-in from your team. Fundamentally, I want to develop software that delivers exactly what you need every time.
Outside Redox, my three dogs keep me busy. Loving all animals, dogs are my absolute favourite.
Head of Operations.
I’m responsible for ensuring Redox runs smoothly every day. That includes making sure development projects run on time and within budget.
Starting in the Royal Corps of Signals, I soon appreciated the value of IT processes and organisation. Building on my IT systems engineering experience, I then worked in GIS (geographic information systems) before becoming Head of IT Operations for an asset tracking company supporting major retailers.
Redox has an excellent team dynamic and I love being part of it. Everyone enjoys what they do and will happily share wide-ranging expertise.
I like to think the team benefits from my leadership and project management skills.
IT is fast-moving and your business must stay ahead of the curve. To that end, we’re constantly looking for the next level of technology.
Exercise and travel are my things outside work. My treasured motorhome takes me to many European destinations where I enjoy absorbing different cultures and languages.
As a product manager, I sit between client and software developer. Talking with clients, I understand where they’re at and help identity the most effective product to achieve what they need. From there, I work with our developers to plan this out.
Previously, I had a similar role at a digital marketing agency, helping clients create mobile apps. Most Redox projects include bespoke software, mobile apps, or portals, so my approach works well.
Working at Redox is very positive as everyone’s on the same page. We have a strong shared vision and support each other to achieve this.
With a wide variety of projects, I love huge ones with countless moving parts – like Forestry for Gresham House. It’s great to be involved with this.
There’s no doubt software is rapidly evolving all the time. At Redox, we’re constantly learning, and that would be my advice for clients too. You must personally develop your knowledge (and lean on us for ours).
Straight out of university, I worked for a brewery and developed my love for craft beer. You’ll find me watching West Ham when I have the time or enjoying a good board game with friends.
Head of Product and Client Relations.
I help client dreams become reality. Software must always deliver value that’s in context. So, I’m continually in touch with clients, understanding their needs and the goals new technology must achieve for them.
My career has always been in the digital product space. Previously working for a large professional membership organisation, I introduced an internal digital product function and influenced the digital strategy. My role also involved managing third party relationships and documenting our processes.
At Redox, I want to make a difference – to our clients and to our own operations. It’s such a closeknit team and all our different personalities work brilliantly together.
Having completed a couple of counselling courses (I once thought that was my career path) I’m a great listener and work well with people.
Technology must always work in harmony with your processes. Software, in itself, is not a silver bullet. My role therefore supports your implementation, helping you embed new software into your processes. That’s how you gain most value.
When not working, I’m a volunteer Bishop for my religious congregation. It’s more challenging than the community choir I used to run. And along with my two small boys, it keeps me busy.
