Neil Kidd

Head of Academy

Cox Automotive UK

I’m a lead software engineer and architect with broad experience in a number of technology stacks and languages. I have strong business value, agile, dev-ops and cloud-centric interests, as well as skills in team leadership, coaching and mentoring. I’m also invested in continuous learning and self-improvement - often found on PluralSight, A Cloud Guru or O’Reilly.

Away from code, I enjoy reading, DIY, motorcycling and spending time with my family.
