Sam is based out of OpenOcean's London office and has a background working in software development and operations. Having studied Computer Science, he started his career at JPMorgan working on the world’s first real-time liquidity monitoring and flow control system which automatically managed in excess of USD 6 trillion in cash flows per day. He also spent some time in JPMorgan's Cyber Defence team focusing on application security. Sam's experience in high-growth startups came when he joined Uber as an Operations Manager helping to launch the product across the UK and as a member of the executive team at Community Fibre, joining on their seed round, which would later be acquired through a £400 million LBO.
