Tom Akehurst

Tom has been building enterprise software since 2003 for UK and US businesses in transport, hospitality, publishing, broadcasting, utilities, and retail, in addition to local and national government. Beginning his career as a Java developer, he quickly recognized the value of agile, DevOps, and continuous delivery and was early to adopt these techniques. While leading an engineering team building part of the technology behind Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ Magic Band, he created WireMock as a way to solve the productivity bottlenecks caused by unstable environments and late delivery of upstream APIs. These days, Tom is the CTO and Co-Founder of WireMock Cloud, which increases developer productivity in an API-dependent environment.
