Building things on the web since 1998.
Senior Director of Engineering at VoucherCodes.co.uk
Hi, I'm Greig. Growing up I wanted to be a radio DJ, but after a stint in the midnight to 2am slot on local radio I realised it was a dull job and my dream was shattered. Luckily, I was good with computers and soon got the opportunity to work in the "Internet Department" of a mail order computer games company. This was 1998.
Fast forward sixteen years and I have been responsible for building many sites and systems, primarily in the ecommerce and web hosting space. I enjoy building complex backend systems, platforms and tools and have built up a lot of experience in this area.
I'm currently Senior Director of Engineering at VoucherCodes where I look after a 25 person team. I still love getting hands on with new technology and seeing what it can do. Right now I'm playing more with Docker, Laravel and Redis.
I live in Hertfordshire with my family and commute daily into London.
Launched in 2008, VoucherCodes.co.uk quickly grew to become the biggest discount voucher site in Europe. I joined in 2010 as the lead PHP engineer and built many of the features still in use today.
I'm now Senior Director of Engineering and have scaled the team to 25 engineers working on the site, mobile apps, tools and services.
