Justin Haylock

Senior innovation developer


My role at Jisc is primarily to provide support to my team and direction and focus for our projects.

I'm a pragmatic scrum master, hands-on developer and this is my dream job!


I wrote (copied from a magazine) my first bit of software in 1984 on a zx spectrum (of course!) and ever since then I've hugely enjoyed working with computers and their users.

I have a deep appreciation of the giants, whose shoulders we stand upon, so I've always felt a certain responsibility to push forward and innovate.

In my spare time I scuba dive or enjoy being creative with art and music and have released an album and a few EPs working with a pianist from America that I've never met in person!
