Owen, give us some background about yourself!
I’m based in Northampton in the UK, making up half of Ghost’s UK contingent. I’ve been with the company for two and a bit months, having joined in November 2022. I live here with my wife, Stephanie, and two teenage children, George and Sophie. We have two dogs, Poppy, the elderly pretty one you see below, and Penny, my fantastic idiot puppy!
How’d you end up in this industry?
I’ve been in IT since I joined the RAF (UK Air Force) straight from school, initially working in deployed communications and IT. From there, I worked as a software developer and platform engineer across many industries, including Gas and Oil, Formula 1, and retail, covering areas from data engineering to platform security.
I have recently been working on tooling to help developers write secure code. Coming from a developer background, I have a clear idea of what I want tools and services to do to make my life easier, and I want to make tools that tick those boxes.
