Hello, I’m Josh. I help create software as a hands-on programmer and engineering leader. I’m based in Manchester, UK.


Right now, I’m doing contract work via my luxury engineering consulting vehicle, Pretty Good Software.


My most recent full-time role was as Chief Technology Officer at Contact. I built their software and technology team from the ground up.

I also looked after iOS engineering at Poolsuite, a summer-themed music platform. The app I built for them single-handedly was an Apple Design Award finalist in 2021.

Prior to that, I helped build software for Deliveroo, The Beano, the Government Digital Service, Wonderbly, Daisie, Banked, Bricklane and the BBC, amongst many others.
