Julian Biddle | Create humane technology that empowers and inspires





Technology is changing the way people perceive the world. I find the way people interact with technology fascinating. With a background in software engineering, psychology, history and science I see an exciting and challenging future ahead.

I love working with teams and I’m an innovator. I enjoy talking ideas and have the depth of experience and skills to make them happen. My main areas of interest are artificial intelligence and virtual reality.

I am experienced leader, product manager, speaker, software architect and engineer. I have worked in a mixture of small and large companies, primarily with Technology One, one of Australia’s leading ISVs.

Software technologies I currently work with are cloud services, mobile, social media, enterprise collaboration platforms and wikis.

If we want a bright and positive future, lets build it together!
