Posted on in News

It’s with great excitement that we’re welcoming Adrian McShane to Human Made as our Technical Project Lead. Adrian has deep history delivering technology across new and traditional big media, from his early work at The Telegraph, and his recent key role in bringing The Sun to WordPress, to founding several media startups of his own including tech.eu. Adrian will join our world-class agency team, focused on helping enterprise and big media build their future with open source. Welcome Adrian!

Being in the small world that is WordPress development I’ve been lucky enough to meet a lot of Humans at different events and past work over the last few years, so coming to join is such a welcome opportunity. For myself I’ve been working in media for around 10 years now, and before that I spent a number of years in the travel industry making 40 year old systems behave in a modern and user friendly way for various airlines. I’m old, but spritely. Working for “old” media has been a labour of love as I have a lot of respect for the hard working and interesting people within the business, not just in tech but across editorial and even print. I’ve primarily been a tech lead over the years with forays into business analysis, people and account management, R&D, architecture and product management. Never a designer though, I envy those people. Looking forward to the many diverse and interesting projects Human Made get involved in and working with the amazing people that live in our Slack channels (and sometimes even the real world). Oh, and I love to travel too.
