Shane Webster

Partner, New Business Development

Appreciative of beer and Northampton Town Football Club, Shane is ambitious and enjoys chasing his dreams, particularly on an extremely lazy Sunday.

A family man; father to a six year old and stepfather to a 19 year old - his me time is much needed at the allotment as a fanatical gardener.

Although a fast car motor head, he enjoys the tranquility of water and loves reef snorkeling.

Up at 5am - but might be a lot later.

Iain Doughty

Senior Developer

With over 20 years of experience in the field there isn't much Iain can't accomplish with code, whether for a website or Soviet Russia's newest submarine technology.

Always filling the office with knowledgeable and topical banter, he is an avid wearer of colourful woollen jumpers and has brought back the 70's pornstar haircut with style.

If you see him anywhere there will most likely be a heater on nearby. 30 degrees in the office? Smash that heater on then boys and let's get to it!

Scott Dixon

Senior Developer

Scott is the Jedi master in the studio. Armed with vast knowledge on web development; he is easily our commander in chief when it comes to urgent technical problems or anything that needs a fix.

A keen enthusiast in table tennis and is seeded 986th in the country. Not so sure where he's ranked for beer pong though…

Realist, and pragmatic in his views. Appreciator of retro gear and has a unique taste in music, which he feels obliged to share amongst the studio.

Dave Rushton

Lead Developer

Dave is a serious developer by day and a serious gamer by night; fuelled by a passion for technology. LED lights and whey bars.

He started at Seventy9 as a junior developer whilst he finished his university education. He is now the proud owner of a Bachelors Computer Science Honours Degree and the title of Lead Developer.

He loves telling us bad jokes; really bad jokes because he thinks it gets us through the day. Don’t be surprised by his muscular physique either, he doesn’t spend all day in the gym for nothing.

Look under this desk and you will find a stockpile of his whey bars, because that’s the “way” to go ….. oh dear.

Bryan Lade

Digital Marketing

Bryan has been marketing on the internet since 1998. Back when it was simple.

When he’s not helping our clients get new business on the web, his attention turns to being father of 4 (2 flown the nest, yey! two to go, boo!), two French Bulldogs and a pride of Koi Carp.

That leaves little time for other passions such as Table Tennis, England Cricket, Formula 1 and trying to exercise to lose weight.

Bed made. Lie in it Bryan!

She loves nothing more than a quiet Saturday whilst all 3 boys are at football to catch up on some addictive box sets whilst looking forward to a Pinot Grigio or 3 and some ‘food porn’ - Always grazing and shouldn’t be crossed when she’s ‘hangry’!

Carrie enjoys knitting, loves a good book; especially when its being read on a sun-bed somewhere hot…Carrie truly relates to every mother’s plight for peace with parenting topics being her speciality! #metime
