Matthew Bloch

Hello! 👋

I’m Matthew, a 39-year old programmer and business enthusiast who lives in York, UK.

I grew up in Headington, Oxford 🦈, and studied Classics & Computer Science at King’s College in Cambridge 1998-2001.

My work

For 16 years I was Managing Director of Bytemark, the UK’s cloud hosting company. It still runs its own cloud computing platform and hosts thousands of web sites. I sold my interest and left at the end of 2018.

Peter and I built the company around engineering ideals - we made our own data centre, software stack and anonymous hiring process. Since 2002 we helped thousands of people put their sites and software into the cloud. Many rising stars in the UK tech industry came through our progressive workplace.

Do you have an business-critical web application that you want to move into the cloud but don't know how? Send me an email! I'll co-author an engineering roadmap with your team that fits with your business plans. I can write reliable code, perform mission-critical operations work, or recruit for your team.

I'm available from mid-August 2019.
