About Me

Simon Philp

I work as a senior developer within one of the largest online tyre retailers in the UK. Previously I have worked for Indicia developing solutions for many clients. Before Indicia I worked at DigitasLBi in the Production Engineering team. Within this team I worked on the marketing cloud suite that included projects such as BlackBook, LookOut and PeoplePulse. Outside of my main job I am also a freelance fitness instructor. I have a passion for Les Mills programmes of which I went from participant to body combat instructor.
