When Patrick had the idea to create BLACKBX, he didn’t stop and waste time, he went all Leeroy Jenkins as he grew up frustrated at the need to find and input endless passwords, fill in registration forms and deal with poor connectivity. Self-taught programmer, Patrick started the company from scratch.
The only things that make this sailor sick, are horrible WiFi and businesses losing money for not understanding their customers.
Helen with her financial expertise and experience has supported acquiring funding to get BLACKBX off the ground and continue to grow and develop.
When not crunching numbers in the office Helen enjoys a life on the ocean waves as a blue water sailor. Her love of old property and boats feeds the desire to restore and build. Never far away from the next project.
Our tech-savvy Customer Success Coach Douglas solves any issues and queries for our customers. As a key contact in our team, he provides the best experience building strong customer relationships.
When he is not being a dedicated support agent, Douglas is doing one of two things: planning his next night out OR enjoying his night out.
Jamie is our Backend Software Developer. Since joining, he has worked on refactoring the existing system so that we can offer a robust API.

He has been proclaimed world’s worst D&D player, and as a good Brazilian he enjoys playing football and "enjoying" the Scottish weather.
