We’re excited to announce another new addition to our team: Will Jessop, who pings from Manchester in the UK, is now the second EU engineer on our Operations team.

Will comes from Engine Yard where he provided scaling and support expertise for Rails sites such as Seeking Alpha, Groupon and KgbKgb. Recently Will worked on a senior team tasked with live migrating more than half of Engine Yard’s private cloud customers to a new cloud platform. It’s going to be great to have another member of the team with such deep understanding of application development and systems implementation practices.

With the addition of Will, we’ll have a lot more ability to conduct off-hours maintenance and scalability testing. He will also be helping us improve deployment practices, standardize our applications on the latest Ruby, and improve performance of our applications in Europe and the rest of the non-US world.

Welcome aboard, Will!
