Please tell us about yourself

I'm 32 years old and live with my girlfriend in Hazel Grove, near Stockport, having originally come from Chesterfield.

Could you outline your experience and career so far?

I have been developing software for a number of years now, for a variety of different companies, creating all things from in house applications to web sites that have many thousands of visitors per day.

Most recently I have been working for bet365 on some of the back office sports trading systems. I feel quite privileged to have worked with some quite brilliant people and on some interesting projects in my career.

What’s your knowledge of matched betting like?

I have done quite a bit of matched betting on new customer offers in the past, around 2010 to earn some extra money alongside my regular job. I also then tried my hand at some trading strategies with some success to give a bit of a much needed boost to my income at the time.

What attracts you to the challenge of working at PA?

Having been a matched bettor, seeing the instructions, calculators and data that are provided as part of the service, and knowing the time and money this can save when finding the right bets to match, I feel that there is a great package of services currently offered, and I hope to be able to bring some of my ideas and experiences to help improve these further over the months and years to come.
