Meet the people who

make it happen

Established in 2016, Fat Potato is a family run business, started by husband-and-wife team Jo and Andrew. Since then, we’ve grown our team by adding talented and passionate individuals. Our company ethos is to make everyone feel valued and included.

Jo Walsh

COO & DevOps Engineer

While guiding the internal direction of the company, along with overlooking staff welfare, Jo also specialises as a DevOps engineer. She brings a wealth of experience to the development and architectural design of high volume streaming processing systems with a focus on decoupled, scalable and observable solutions to improve system support.

Outside of Fat Potato, Jo enjoys riding her horse, dancing and yoga as well as being in the top 0.1% of Taylor Swift Spotify listeners in the UK (something Andrew is less proud of…).

Andrew Walsh

CEO & DevOps Engineer

Having worked across multiple domains, Andrew brings a wealth of technical and commercial experience to the role. Always wanting to stay connected and up to date in the industry, Andrew continues to develop software as part of our Software Delivery team.

When not in the office, Andrew enjoys being taken for a ride by his horse, Brazilian Jujitsu, cooking and stockpiling enough wood for the apocalypse – all with the help from his trusty chainsaw and axe.

Jack

Having graduated from Cardiff University in 2020 with a BSc in software engineering, Jack enjoys getting to grips with new projects and enhancing his skillset. He’s also a very proud parent to 2 little rabbits.

Carole

Recent Fat Potato recruit Carole offers several years of HR and office administration experience. Carole enjoys walking, talking, baking, eating, playing online scrabble, Animal Crossing and socialising.

Tim

A developer for over 20 years, Tim has extensive knowledge of the full development lifecycle. Having gained a BSc Hons with the Open University, he initially trained as a Java developer – however, he enjoys the challenge of learning new skills and languages. Tim’s pastimes include riding with his local cycle club along with walking in the local hills and mountains.

Meet 'Mr' Fat Potato!

Ever wondered where our company name and logo comes from? We’ll, look no further… this is the team’s pet chinchilla, who they affectionally call “Fat Potato”, given his uncanny resemblance to the veg!
