Meet Our Team

At Binary Blue, all of our engineers are qualified to the highest industry standards and have a breadth of experience working across multiple industry sectors.
We’ve worked in sectors like finance, security and engineering, as well as in technology itself, and we’ve also worked in Edtech where we’ve managed the IT infrastructure of a national multi academy trust of schools.
But outside of large sectors, we’re capable of working at a smaller, or even localised level, and one of our key business values is to use our knowledge to help smaller groups. To that end, we’re proud to have extended our expertise to niche industries like music vendors and even specialist networking component suppliers.
In addition to being experienced in a range of different disciplines, overseeing IT teams, working with and supporting internal IT departments and offering IT consulting services where necessary, our engineers are also all customer service focussed – and we believe that this is what makes us unique. At Binary Blue, the mission of our team is to attain and deliver good customer service: not just computer service.
