Hey, I’m Ben 👋 and my favourite emoji is 🤘.

Like most people in 2020 and 2021, I spend most of my time working from my home office.

I’m an engineer turned Director of Engineering who currently works for Skyscanner ✈️. I’ve also worked at Arnold Clark 🚙, Glasgow Science Centre 🔬 and CityFM 🏢.

I’ve been either writing software or helping big teams write software since 2006 and I’ve been a manager of human beings since 2012.

The opinions stated in this blog are that entirely of my own and don’t represent the current company I work for.
