who we are

geek is not an insult

We are IT professionals with an unashamed passion for understanding how things work.

We like challenges; the harder the better.

Not everyone understands the beauty of an elegant solution to a difficult problem.

But it's what we do.

We just don't take ourselves too seriously about it all. Life's too short.

What We Do
About

the team

Allow ourselves to introduce... ourselves.

Marc Beavan

Marc "Bev" Beavan

Founder, CTO, Developer

Marc is living proof that delivering IT solutions should be fun. With no shortage of inappropriate jokes and a penchant for punishing people who leave their computers unattended, Marc's no holds barred approach means things get done; and they get done right.

(Sometimes even first time.)

With 15+ years' experience spanning London and Guernsey, Marc never shies away from a challenge.

In fact, if you need something doing, tell him it's impossible and watch him prove you wrong.

Or draw a phallic shape on it.

Matt Thornton

Matt "T-Bag" Thornton

Founder, CEO, Developer

Matt's biggest (and most irritating) asset is his attention to detail. Whether it's spotting bugs in code or spotting grammatical errors in other people's work, Matt will find it and tell you about it.

Usually with an obnoxious smirk on his face.

After a long spell at University honing his analytical skills, Matt has spent the last 15+ years applying them in Guernsey.

Tip: don't interrupt him if he's in the zone - usual signs are air drumming, fixated stare on random object and/or swearing prolifically - unexpected behaviour may will result.

Dan Steadman

Dan "D2" Steadman

Developer

Staniel Deadman is our platform ninja. If you need a platform. And a ninja. Then he's your man.

Although he is a little short. (To be a storm-trooper.)

Jason

Jason "Debbie" Magee

Developer

Jase is a full-on code monkey with an unhealthy taste for mince pies and unnecessarily tight ball-hugging jogging bottoms. He particularly likes systems that are protected by 18 layers of VPN / security / authentication and definitely won't whinge about it at any available opportunity.

But he's pretty handy with Blazor, so we let him off.

Alex Jans

Alex "BG" Jans

Associate Developer

AJ is credentialled up to the max, most recently gaining a Master's in Data Science. That basically means he's really good at SELECT * FROM, which is admittedly pretty handy.

We just refuse to accept that he's actually a scientist.

Cyndi

Cyndi

Robotic Developer Squirrel

There's nothing to be confused about. Unless you don't receive the Cortex email newsletter. In which case, yep, this could be confusing. It's a metaphor.

Bob

Bob

Office Helper

Bob crops up in many places. Usually Git commits and demo portals.
