Bespoke software development consultancy Scott Logic has welcomed a new client manager as it continues to grow its client base.
Father of two Andrew Carr joins the firm after hearing good things about the company culture from a former colleague who took a role at Scott Logic earlier this year.
Andrew, who’ll be based in Scott Logic’s London office, explained: “I was already familiar with the company as I sometimes attend the Bristech meetup group that Scott Logic sponsors and helped found. I heard such good things; the positive culture Scott Logic has really showed through and I wanted to be part of it.”
Andrew, who is originally from Enfield, North London and splits his time between the capital and Bath, graduated from Newcastle University with a degree in Computer Science in 1994, having begun coding as a hobby at around the age of 12. He has since built a career working with clients on trading applications, both in equities and bonds.
Having worked in Canada and the UK, in the public and private sectors, Andrew is particularly fond of Big Data analytics and also has experience of telecoms network management. He also has a keen interest in psychology, and hosts meetups in both London and Bath inspired by the well-known Myers Briggs personality types.
He said: “There is so much change in software development at the moment. It’s really hard for clients to keep up, and I wanted to join a company that I felt could make a real difference in terms of helping clients understand and navigate such a fast-moving environment.
“I’m really pleased to have joined a firm that aligns with my beliefs in terms of how things can be done.”
Andrew’s appointment highlights Scott Logic’s ongoing growth as it continues to diversify its client portfolio and recruit for software developers at all levels, as well as testers and user experience (UX) designers to service their needs.
Scott Logic’s General Manager Nigel Wilson said: “It’s fantastic to have Andrew on board. He will augment the solid experience and passion already on the team and help us reach new markets and new clients, as well as strengthen our existing relationships.”
