I’m a passionate believer in enabling engineers to focus on the interesting parts of their job and less on the mundane; through elegant tooling, automation and fantastic developer experiences. Happier developers supported by great tooling build better products.

My work at Octopus Energy focuses this passion towards helping our engineers drive the green energy revolution across the world.


Optimising for joy

The good feeling new developers get when they begin to program for the first time fades as we get more experience and learn more. Is it possible to recapture that feeling?
