Jonathan started at HIDef in March 2021 and is responsible for software development for a number of projects at HiDef aiming to increase productivity.
Jonathan has worked in a variety of roles within IT and software development over the years turning a school hobby into a career. He started out introducing the first desktop PCs into the CEGB before working on IBM mainframe networking for Nuclear Electric and British Energy.
Continuing in IBM mainframe networks and into general networks and firewalls, Jonathan managed systems for large corporations including Coca-Cola, Birmingham City Council and Cadburys.
After the millennium he moved into middleware software development and an enjoyable role at Cadburys supporting early dial-in e-commerce processing millions of pounds worth of orders per week from the large supermarkets.
A move to Cumbria prompted a change and work for a major consultancy processing millions of rows of transport data per month for the Highways Agency followed by a role for a surveying company developing brand new software to process ground penetrating radar data to map underground utilities and archaeology.
The move to HiDef in 2021 is a new and exciting challenge for Jonathan and one that he is relishing.
