Matt Huxtable is a practitioner and technical leader with deep experience as a software engineer, systems administrator, and Site Reliability Engineer. Technology is very much a vocation for him - he is a lifelong technologist with various experience working with startups, enterprises, and running his own technology small businesses. He holds BA and MEng degrees in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge.
He has generally found himself in roles where he has had to learn what's necessary to get stuff done, so he's versed in everything from desktop support to software development, across Microsoft and Unix-based estates on-premises and in the cloud.
Today, he is a Tech Lead on the Platform & Site Reliability Engineering team for a UK-based neobank, where he's building out a new banking platform in the cloud. His particular area of interest is where deep systems understanding meets human factors. He enjoys understanding how systems of people and technology work together, embracing their inevitable flaws and harnessing his own experiences to build reliable systems that users love to use.
