My name is Eoin Woods and I have worked in software engineering of some sort for more than 20 years. I’ve been lucky enough to work for a number of great companies during that time, including Groupe Bull, Sybase, Intertrust, Zuhlke, BGI (now part of BlackRock and UBS. I’ve also been an independent consultant, which was another good experience.
Today, I’m the CTO of Endava, the fast growing software engineering services company. We build software for other people, with most of our projects being in the areas of digital and agile transformation and business and IT automation. I work with our major clients to offer technical advice, particularly architectural assessments and advice on technical strategy, and I work with Endava’s delivery organisation to ensure that we have the right people, tools, technologies, and processes to create great results for our clients.
Professionally, I am interested in a range of areas including software architecture, software security, DevOps and databases. On the educational front, I have the usual collection of letters after my name, with BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in software engineering and the FBCS, MIEE (MIET today), CEng and CITP professional qualifications. I’m also a fellow of the International Association of Software Architects.
Outside work, I‘m an enthusiastic amateur trumpet player (playing a range of styles including wind band, brass band and classical), and I like anything with an engine that moves quickly (particularly Alfa Romeo, Audi and Jaguar road cars and motor racing, including saloon car, Formula-E and Formula 1).
