Joey Flint

Head of Agile Delivery

Hi, I’m Joey. I first came into the company as a contracting consultant before being taken on permanently as Head of Agile Delivery.

I love the problem solving aspect of my role, it’s great figuring out what a client needs, when they need it and then working with a team to deliver a quality outcome. At 6point6,I’ve been introduced to various aspects of government which I had previously not known about or appreciated so the role really is exciting and I’ve learnt so much already.

Mark Debney

Head of DevOps

I’m Mark. I started off as a Senior DevOps Consultant at 6point6 and have progressed my way to Head of Devops.

I get exposure to a lot of interesting projects here; my favourite is working with the BBC News developers to create new tools to improve and automate their deployments. It’s always exciting to see your code go live or a tool that you’ve helped create start to be used by teams, but it’s a great feeling to provide a genuine improvement to an organisation’s technical process.

Dan Smith

Lead Big Data Architect

Hi, I’m Dan and I am Lead Big Data Architect.

Our Big Data architecture teams work on some of the largest scale data platforms in Government and the private sector.
Working on big data platforms can require a rapid understanding of how government departments, businesses and industries function. Getting to spend time analysing the complexities of large clients’ data estates is a stimulating way to satisfy your curiosity about how the world really works!

Peter Barnsley

Cyber Security Director

Hello, I’m Pete. I joined 6point6 as Enterprise Cyber Security Architect and I am now a Cyber Security Director.

At 6point6, every day is different and brings opportunities to learn new things and meet new people. The varied nature of the role makes it really interesting. I could be briefing seniors regarding a Cyber Security Strategy, reviewing low level architecture or working with developers. You could be working with a bank one day and a central government department the next; both have their unique challenges and needs.

Jamie Whittingham

Junior DevOps Consultant

Hi, I’m Jamie. I work in DevOps, but was seconded into the Cyber team for a few months too.

This was a great opportunity to broaden my experience and knowledge, whilst getting to know other people in the business. We work for some great clients, and my particular favourite has to be the Home Office. I’ve been working on some new systems which are being rolled out to the public. Not only has it given me some client exposure of the best kind, it’s also changed my perceptions of working on Government projects for the better.
