Hi, I’m Jamie, the founder of Pootlepress.
I’m passionate about the next stage of the web and how it’s changing the world (mostly for the better). I have spent all my working life building businesses on the web and have held both technical and commercial board level positions. Prior to founding Pootlepress I was Managing Director of Pavilion Interactive Ltd and Chief Technical Officer of Documedia PLC.
Pootlepress was born 10 years ago. It’s a been a fantastic and fun journey so far. We’ve trained over 5000 people on WordPress in the past 10 years, and our plugins and themes are used by thousands of customers worldwide. I also now run WordPress courses for The Guardian as part of their Digital Masterclass series.
Our leadership team
It’s been a privilege to work with some incredibly talented people over the past 10 years.
Shramee is our Lead Developer. Together we come up with the ideas, and develop all our products. We’re obsessed with crafting the finest WordPress themes and plugins. Shramee is based in Singapore. Here’s a pic of us together. He’s a genius!
