Sion never backs down from a technical challenge. He started programming aged 10 and has since held all AWS professional certifications, as well as being a Confluent certified developer. At the start of his career, Sion spent 10 years as a Java / Scala developer, then moved into distributed software development.
Sion has a highly commercial background, too. He founded a FinTech startup in 2013 and guided it to an undisclosed exit. Alongside this, he has consulted for Adidas, WorldPay, BNP Paribas and HSBC.
Sion has a passion for solving complex problems and gets huge satisfaction from being the first to overcome a challenge. In his free time, Sion builds huge Lego models, keeps up to date with crypto news (a Bitcoin owner since 2012) and also finds time to saddle up on his bike most days!
