Simon Tarry

Director of Engineering Strategy



Simon Tarry started programming 8 bit machines at the age of 8, released a couple of games at school and graduated in Computer Science and Management Studies from Nottingham University. The next 10 years were spent at IBM labs going backwards – from high level languages (Java), through C++, C, PL/X and onto COBOL and Assembler, focused on SOA, security and UI/UX. Simon has spent the last 7 years leading agile teams of .Net, Java and PHP developers across banking and insurance domains, and is currently helping transform TicketMaster into an always open global one-stop shop for tickets. He’s recently led a migration to host a full e-commerce stack in the cloud, and is leading Ticketmaster International’s engineering strategy implementation.
