Founded in 2009, OpenCredo (OC) was well known for its expertise in OpenSource (Open) technologies and believed (Credo) in the value that it could bring to businesses – making their goals a reality.
In 2017, we became a part of the Trifork group. We continue today with the mission of unlocking business value by inspiring, aligning and building more reliable and smarter software solutions that makes life better and easier for everyone.
At the heart of OC, are a bunch of people who love tech and collaborating with one another to solve complex problems! Firm believers of challenges offering the best opportunity for growth – for both individuals and as a company – we are driven by a desire to learn and to be at the forefront of industry developments.
We are a consultancy that values:
Nicki oversees the business and technical strategy, and delivery of our client engagements. She joined us in 2011. Hands-on and pragmatic, she actively engages with our clients to solve their most complex technical problems.
As Technical Delivery Director, James is responsible for the delivery of our client engagements. He is happiest when he is in front of a whiteboard helping to solve problems with customers and colleagues.
Nicki is responsible for our business and technical strategy, and the delivery of our client engagements. She joined us in 2011 as a Senior Consultant, and is now acting as our CEO and CTO. A firm believer in a hands-on and pragmatic approach, she actively engages with our clients to solve their most complex technical problems.
She has vast experience in the delivery of large-scale platform and application development; and has worked for both startups and global enterprise, most recently as an Architect for Sony Computer Entertainment. She is co-author of ‘Neo4J in Action’, has committed to various open source projects, and is an accomplished conference speaker.
Nicki likes her coffee super strong. She is also a fan of mud runs, high octane adventures and active holidays. Amongst her mostly technical tweets, you’ll also find a smattering of her own modern day proverbs.
James is responsible for the delivery of our client engagements. He joined us in 2020 as a lead consultant and is now our Technical Delivery Director. James believes in delighting our customers by helping them deliver the very best outcomes by working in partnership to analyse, architect and deliver pragmatic solutions that bring tangible business value.
James has over 20 years experience as a lead developer in the finance industry at various banks, hedge funds and startups with data intensive applications ranging from fraud detection to pricing. He has presented at a number of industry conferences around data technologies. He cares deeply about design and building quality into the heart of all software and is a firm advocate of XP practices such as TDD and BDD.
Outside of work, James is a fan of all things related to his family, coffee and drum ‘n’ bass (mostly in that order).
