Head of Development, SocietyWorks

Matthew is mySociety’s most long-standing developer. In fact, you could say he was a mySociety developer even before mySociety was founded, because he played a large part in the building of TheyWorkForYou, which was later adopted as a mySociety project.

Working from Birmingham, Matthew has been a key player in the development and maintenance of FixMyStreet, MapIt, SayIt, and WriteToThem, to name but a few.

Outside work but still in computers, Matthew maintains an editable archive of theatre productions, helps people plan their train journeys and catch their train, and monitors the London Underground in real time.

He does actually get away from his computer sometimes, whereupon he can be heard either singing, or playing. Or watching Frozen.

Matthew is fluent in: Python, Javascript
