Chris Ellis

Lead Technical Strategist

I’m a computing jack of all trades, my knowledge and skills go from hardware to frontend. PostgreSQL, Devops, Java are my strongest areas, but I’m just as comfortable fiddling with Ceph clusters, networking and web apps. I’ve got a long proven track record in delivering IT projects on time and too budget.

I have extensive experience of data and IoT systems and have deep technical knowledge across a wide range of tools, languages and approaches. Having worked on a wide range of projects across various business sectors.
