Tom Taylor

Hello, I’m Tom. I’m a technologist with experience leading teams that invent, build and launch new things on the internet. I’m based in London.

I work at the Co-op as Chief Product Engineer. I lead a hands-on, user centred, prototyping and product development team, and work with the executive on future strategy for the business.

Previously, I was co-founder and CTO of Newspaper Club, which I exited after a sale in 2015, and Head of Technology at Offset, a product invention studio at MOO.

Before that I was a partner in the Really Interesting Group, and a freelancer, doing prototyping and technology strategy for clients such as Apple, GOV.UK, the BBC, and the National Maritime Museum.

I tinker with some side projects, such as FaveJet, a stream of what your friends are faving on Twitter, and CityCyclist, an iOS app for city bike navigation (interview with Rapha). I also maintain Satellite Eyes (The Verge, Wired), a popular open source MacOS app that displays satellite imagery from where you are on your desktop wallpaper.

I blog infrequently at, put links on Pinboard, photos on Flickr, reckons on Twitter, code on GitHub.
