Meet the Team
Carl Matthews – Co-founder / Director
I am an experienced Embedded Software Engineer with over 20 years in the industry. I have a passion for all things involving new technology. I have led many medical, military and industrial projects in my career, taking products from specification through design to managing manufacture. I am skilled at writing code for all types of embedded processors, predominantly in C, as well as creating PC applications to communicate, control and configure attached electronics.
I love to make things.
Rob Steel – Co-founder / Director
I am an intuitive and enthusiastic engineer with a passion for electronics. I have over 10 years experience of working in a product development environment, covering all sectors including medical, military, commercial and consumer. I have a broad skill set that enables me to work on most aspects of a project. I pride myself on my practical approach to problem solving and the ability to think outside the box to provide solutions.
I take a can-do attitude to all aspects of my work.
Anna – Engineer
I have many years experience in electronic product development, covering aspects from requirements capture to embedded software (C and ASM) and circuit design to technical documentation. I love the interface between software and hardware and get excited by making electronics do different things by ‘just’ changing lines of code. I have a strong academic background with a PhD in Medical Physics and 1st Class BEng(Hons) degree in Electronic Engineering, and am a Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET).
I have a keen eye for detail.
Dave – Engineer
I am an experienced and dynamic engineer, with a love of all things to do with electronics. I have a comprehensive understanding of taking designs from initial concept to manufacture, and possess a wide knowledge of design processes and manufacturing techniques. I also consider myself hard working, diligent, and enjoy the challenge of a tight deadline. I have a BEng(Hons) in Electronic Engineering and an MSc in Digital Electronics and Communications, and am a Member of the IET (MIET).
I love to learn about, and work with emerging technologies.
Jon – Engineer
I am a very experienced software engineer with a passion for electronics.
My experiences range from laser physics research at St Andrews to setting up prawn sorting machines in Grimsby. Despite my advancing years, I love learning new skills whether it’s a programming language, musical instrument or ‘latest obsession’. I have a BSc in Physics, PgDip in Laser Physics and an MSc in Radiation Physics.
I am a fast learner, fuelled by Tea and Tunnock’s Caramel Wafers.
Richard – Engineer
I am an innovative engineer with over 20 years experience developing new technologies and electronic products. I have developed products for a wide range of industry sectors including Medical, Telecoms, Industrial, Oil & Gas, Commercial and Military. I have also assisted many start-up companies to turn their concepts into a designed-for-manufacture reality. I have a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and I am a Chartered Engineer and member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (CEng MIET).
I love a technical challenge, learning about new technologies and enjoy brain-storming solutions with others.
Tom – Engineer
I am a young and enthusiastic engineer with a 1st Class BSc in Audio Engineering. I have worked in the development and manufacture of high end car audio systems and consumer recording equipment. I’m creative and love learning new skills, whether it’s how to build a 3D printer or learn a new musical instrument.
I’m enthusiastic in everything I do and make sure to do everything to the best of my ability.
Dushan – Engineer
I am a passionate Embedded Systems Software Engineer. I personally see coding as an art form that grasps the thinking process of the coder and as for anyone developing their art, I am constantly thriving to find my own style that balances efficiency and readability. I have a few years of experience in programming in Ada after completing my BEng in Electronics and Communication in Mauritius. I have a first class Master’s Degree in Embedded System from the UK and I am trying to work my way towards a PhD in Engineering looking into Alternative Cognitive Computing.
Paraphrasing a quote from an Embedded Systems textbook I can’t remember, “Bugs are most likely to show themselves on a Friday evening or in front of your clients during a demo.” Trying to overcome this is my passion!
Alex – Assistant Production Manager
I am a dedicated and patient technician, experienced in electronics and general assembly work. I enjoy practical tasks and being resourceful in finding solutions to problems, and always have a cheerful smile for anyone who ventures into the lab.
I am always willing to help.
Sue – Technician
With almost 30 years experience as a Surface Mount Technician, I could solder with my eyes closed (don’t worry – I don’t!). I enjoy working as part of a team and will happily turn my hand to any task required of me. My true passion is for animals, and when I’m not working my three horses take up my time and attention. Having previously been a foster carer for 7 years, I’m used to being organised and staying calm under pressure.
I love a challenge.
Ian – Trainee Technician
I have a several years of practical engineering experience across a broad range of sectors such as marine, automotive, agricultural and electrical engineering. Having enjoyed making things and understanding how things work from a young age, I am excited to now be putting my passion to good use though building a career as an electronics technician.
I am very hands on and always eager to learn.
Lizzi – Office Manager
I have many years of experience in sales and purchasing. I thrive working as part of a busy team and enjoy meeting new people, getting to know all of our customers and suppliers well. I’m a neat-freak and very organised, there’s nothing better than a tidy desk and a well-formatted spreadsheet! I’m also a keen, yet amateur, cake baker and can’t survive without good coffee.
I love to organise things (and people!).
