Tom Barrett

Tom joined Pragmatic in March 2014 as a Senior Developer. He progressed into a Team Leader role in 2015. Tom is responsible for leading most of the heavy back end programming that makes our websites work.

Tom is a bit of a serious software sensei (did we mention he also speaks Japanese?) and you’re most likely to find him methodically cruising through lines of code, producing wonderful online applications and environments. Tom works behind the scenes, creating the magic that allows our clients to use, navigate and edit their WordPress websites quickly and easily themselves.

Always looking to push forward the world of WordPress, Tom is a star when it comes to the development of niche themes and regularly attends WordPress conferences (WordCamps) and local WordUps – in fact that’s where he bumped into Pragmatic.

Outside of work Tom likes to keep healthy at a local Cross Fit gym and is part of the BBC Trust’s South East Audience Panel. He likes to spend time at home with his wife and daughter, and their ginger cat, Woody.
