As a Solution Architect at Tide, Tom spends most of his time designing different components of the core product of the fintech challenger.
Apart from that he reads, experiments, teaches and spreads the word for other exciting technologies such as Flutter, Kotlin, Go, Firebase and Google Cloud Platform.
Outside the office, he prays for deep snow, a waxed snowboard and a working lift.

We’ll also touch on Tide’s experience of moving to messaging as part of scaling up our development organization.
