Jonathan has been writing software for more than 13 years within the finance industry. Having worked as the lead software architect for RisCura, a leading investment risk consultancy, he joined Ocellics as a Director of Software development in 2013.

In his spare time Jonathan can be found playing touch rugby or running on the mountain.

The Ocellics team has given me the opportunity to partner with like-minded individuals to build a multi-dimensional solution focused business where there are no limits placed on creativity and no compromises made on quality.

Steve Estcourt Director

While working as a software engineer in the finance industry I kept seeing companies and related departments struggling to complete their work because data was not available on time or was erroneous. One department would have some of the data, the rest was in a legacy system or managed by another department with no easy way to access that data. Invariably a new system or ad-hoc and time-consuming process would be created to solve the immediate need, but the underlying problem would persist - I wanted to solve this. I believed that once it was solved the rest of the functionality like automation, reporting, web portals, and wide internal and external system integration would all be easier, more robust, and a lot more fun to build.
