Hello there, friend ✌🏼

My name is James Bedford. I come from deepest, darkest Berkshire and live in the countryside with my fiancee, doggo and 15 small horses.

I originally started in software engineering as a Front-End developer, and am interested in the JAMstack and Design Systems and the role they play in product development. My current professional focus is on the line management and coaching of engineers and their performance, progression, growth, and wellbeing.

Currently

Associate Engineering Manager at Monzo

Previously
