It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Matt Cockayne as technical lead. Matt arrives with a wealth of experience, particularly from his last role as the managing/technical director at Zucchi Ltd.
Matt has worked in a variety of organisations where he has been able to influence the commercial, technical and project management aspects of their business. Prior to working at Zucchi Ltd, Matt occupied roles as senior and lead developer at CTI Digital and Wilson Cooke.
As well as having first class skills in software development, Matt brings substantial experience of leading teams and cultivating highly effective development environments. His skills and expertise will be a great addition to Magma Digital’s production processes. Joining the senior management team, Matt will help to oversee the robust handover from new business enquiries into technical delivery, and on to project completion.
Matt said, “I have known Jeremy through the PHP Community for many years. I have followed his work at Magma Digital with interest and the community input of the PHPNW user group/conference was a big selling point for me. When I had an opportunity for my next career move, it was an obvious choice to speak with Jeremy and meet the team at Magma Digital.
He continued, “the forward thinking approach at Magma Digital is attractive to any prospective employee and I aim to enhance the company’s reputation for technical distinction.”
It is wonderful to have Matt on board; his knowledge and skills will be a significant boost to the Magma Digital team as a whole. Matt will compliment the attributes of Jeremy, CEO, and the directors, Barry and Priscilla, as we look to progress into a new chapter in the new year.
