Meet Owen, the Technical Lead for our Greenlight Supplier Approval product. He is responsible for the adoption of mobile technologies and the enhancement of Muddy Boots Software’s existing mobile solutions. More specifically, his role involves the management of the technical aspects of mobile development and delivery to ensure that our knowledge and experience is up-to-date and spread across the development teams.
Before coming to Muddy Boots, Owen was working as an infrastructure and software developer for a bespoke software company who provided solutions to pension providers and the oil and gas industry.
In 2013, Owen joined Muddy Boots Software as a Software Developer on our Greenlight Assessments product. His role mainly consisted of looking for new and innovative ways of maintaining and enhancing the existing solution for our customers. He then progressed up to the Technical Lead focusing on creating a single-instance service that provides supply chain management capabilities to organisations across the supply chain.
With this being an active and expanding product, today Owen has moved into mobile solutions, allowing Muddy Boots Software to increase its offering across iOS, Android and Windows platforms so that we are able to utilise the capabilities mobile technology provides our customers.
