inCase Insight:Chris Ingram

Chris joined inCase in April this year as Lead Developer and became a part of the family at inCase instantly. Since then, Chris has been playing a critical role in the development of our inCase apps and has used his extensive knowledge to improve clients’ existing apps(on multiple devices including web apps, Android and iOS!) as well as playing a pivotal role in future application development. Chris explains his work with great detail but also simplicity and is brilliant when communicating with clients’ technical staff and IT Support. We’ve asked Chris some questions about his career so far.

Could you tell us a bit about your journey before inCase?

A few years ago, I was approached by one of my previous University professors who had an idea for an app that would track users’ everyday exercise as part of a campaign to get the city of Sheffield moving. As MoveMore gained popularity over Sheffield, I wasn’t expecting it when my boss, Fabio, casually dropped into conversation “By the way, I just got off the phone with Public Health England and they want to give the app to half a million people within the next 3 months”. Creating Active 10, I learnt a huge amount in a short space of time about ensuring quality in an app, and processing high volumes of data. I feel privileged to have worked with some very intelligent people at the University of Sheffield and Public Health England.

What is the proudest moment of your career?

Working in tech means that a lot of people including your family don’t really understand what you do for a living. When the TV campaign went out for Active 10, it brought to life what we’d been throwing a lot of our spare time into. It’s always a great moment when people find what you’ve created genuinely useful.

What do you want to achieve at inCase?

The legal industry feels like it’s ready to be innovated. In an age where people can order taxis, food, and send money to their friends with one tap, I’d like to create an experience that feels natural to both clients and lawyers, while continuing to think up wild ideas.

 

And finally, on a lighter note, could you please share a lesser-known fact about yourself?

When I was a child I spent a lot of time solving Rubik’s cubes – so much that I could solve it in an average of 25 seconds. I once won champagne at a bar offering a bottle to anyone who can solve it!
