What does StackHPC do?

We help some major scientific research projects with some really ambitious computing challenges.

How long have you been coming to Desklodge?

A long time! I returned to freelancing in September 2015 and first came to DeskLodge shortly after that. Our firm is a DeskLodge home-grown product - we started here three and half years ago, and have thrived in the DeskLodge environment ever since.  Now we are approaching 15 people, but our centre of gravity is still in DeskLodge.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

Our team.  Some of the things this team achieves are world-beating.  We punch well above our weight in the projects we deliver.

What is your favourite thing about DeskLodge?

The buzz!  It’s a great place to work.  For a small team like ours, we’d be rattling around in an office suite by ourselves.  DeskLodge keeps us from feeling isolated.

What do you do in your spare time?

Ha! Well, I have two kids and my spare time tends to be spent filling their spare time, but when I get the chance I enjoy making things and fixing things.

What is you favour ice cream?

No doubt about this - blackcurrants and clotted cream!

Thanks Stig – enjoy the summer
