About us

Our founders Jake and Tommy met as Head of IT and Lead Developer at Exponential-e and worked together to spearhead the rollout of best practices across the organisation.

They developed truly innovative, industry-leading techniques as they assisted in redefining and standardising processes in order to adopt automation. Realising that others would value their experience, and with the full support of Exponential-e, they created JDLT and began expanding their team and its approach.


Local, not offshore

Offshoring can be a false economy - its benefits may need to be offset against considerable management overhead.
Even when very well managed, offshoring can still lead to miscommunication, implementation issues and wasted time and effort.

We value tremendously the benefits of technology in remote working, but there is no substitute for real human interaction.


Collaborating, not just serving

Bespoke software should fit precisely, not approximately - truly effective systems are delivered when we fully understand your company culture and the nuances of your business and brand, and when you have similar understanding of us and our process.

Our preference is to spend time working alongside your stakeholders and users at your premises, operating collaboratively as trusted associates with priorities fully aligned.


Agile, flexible, scalable and secure

We embrace new technology when it's appropriate to do so; Serverless architecture allows us to scale and price in the most refined way; API-first design ensures future adaptability.

By subscribing to the Agile development methodology we can be flexible and transparent in our delivery to you.

We develop rapidly, and then iterate consistently, providing real-time updates.

Security and encryption are integrated at the lowest level as a matter of course, and we subscribe to the principle of least privilege .

All this means you can relax and trust the work we do is modern, adaptable and professionally designed & built.
