Jonathan Midgley

Director of Engineering, Trainline

I started my career in the finance sector in the 90’s building trading & back office systems, and went on to lead fintech engineering teams for multi-nationals including Zurich and Royal Skandia.

Since then I’ve led global teams of over 400 and large scale global ecommerce builds of over £40m for a list that includes Euromoney PLC,, Go Compare, UBS, Standard Life, Barclays Bank, Zurich, RBS, Royal Skandia, CACI and most recently at Trainline, having built the platform that recently helped take the business through the UK’s second largest IPO ever!

Although my day to day at Trainline is largely strategic I’ve remained resolutely hands on; my passion lies in innovation at scale, and my experience covers business start-up, change, and internationalisation, large scale rapid application development across multiple stacks and geographies, re-platforming, offshoring at scale, product development, UX and UI design, global infrastructure and operational support; all across multiple sectors and geographies.
