Hi, I'm Chris Radford

Alum of four startups and an MBA graduate—I currently work for Simply Business as an Engineering Lead in the US engineering group, leading a team building out our US insurance capabilities.

I've developed software systems on every continent (except Antarctica) for companies from pre-seed to Fortune 500, working on both web and mobile applications.

Projects have ranged from ecommerce to marketing websites, handling millions of pageviews per day, to mobile applications with clients from health insurance, to consumer SaaS.

I've also lead and managed teams across a variety of projects, as both a consultant and employee, working with engineering, product management, founders, and investors.

Engineering Lead, Simply Business

At Simply Business, the UK’s largest insurance broker and part of the Travelers Group, I lead a team of software engineers working on our global software platform.

I joined Simply Business in early 2017 and have spent time working on projects with Finance, Compliance, Legal, and Insurance product teams.

In 2019 I moved to our Boston office to join our US engineering group, and support the growth and expansion of our US business.

I'm involved in hiring, insurance carrier relationship building, and initiatives around conferences and training across our global engineering teams.
