I’m the Slate CEO, running it for 10 years, five years in its current form.

I’ve always loved computers and started out writing code. However, as my career progressed, I realised that it’s not all about the tech: it’s about the people who write the tech. 

And that’s our point of difference.

Don’t give me solutions, give me problems. 

Self professed geek, with a life long passion for problem solving. This started as a kid when I loved taking apart toys and putting them back together.

I’ve got over 18 years of IT experience in roles ranging from system admin, system architecture, dev. Ops., front end and backend development.

Callum Linington

My passion is computers. Ever since I was young I’ve been building and programming them - starting out in BASIC when I was 13. 

Now it’s Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka and .NET Core, as well as building UIs too, focusing mainly on React and Aurelia.

I appreciate programming languages and language design. I’m a code connoisseur and love a good design pattern. 

My latest obsession? F#. Can’t get enough.

Don’t worry if you don’t get it. That’s my job. Love it.

Tom Burgess

Loved software development from an early age. This took me to study computing at uni which resulted in a first class honours degree. 

Since then, I’ve developed my application development and consultancy skills further, specialising in C# and JavaScript; building scalable API's with performant front ends. 

I then gained experience in an IT support and commercial sales role to fully understand clients' needs and develop solutions with - and for - them.

My passion is people! My early career was spent in multinationals - IBM, British Airways and BASF, where I gained a solid understanding of business. I really found my niche working in Cambridge start-ups in the early 2000s - working with great people developing exciting technologies. I’ve been with start-ups and early stage businesses ever since.

Coaching and developing others is key for me-and I’m delighted it’s one of the top agenda items at Slate!
