Matthew Bloch

Hello! 👋

I’m Matthew, a 39-year old computer 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

From 2002-2018 I was Managing Director of Bytemark, the UK’s cloud hosting company. It still runs its own cloud computing platform and provides vital IT infrastructure for thousands of businesses.

Peter and I founded Bytemark around brash engineering ideals - we built 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. And lots of rising stars in the UK tech industry came through our progressive workplace.
