James spent the first 10 years of his career trying to be a professional cyclist. He used to do web development part time to make some money on the side.
One day, after another big crash, he got offered a full time job - he ended up bootstrapping an online marketing company, spending $MMs on paid ads and building a lot of software to optimize ad spends, to run a call center, and how to distribute data and manage ad spends dynamically.
After that, he moved to Arachnys, where he ended up becoming the VP Sales. He ran a team selling very large deals to big financial institutions.
Tim has been coding for cash since he was 11, and full time since he was 16!
Tim met James at Arachnys where he was responsible for Research and Development.
Fun fact: Tim is actually Dutch, despite sounding British.
