Hi! I’m Matt Collins.

I’m an entrepreneurial CTO and product leader who loves building successful online products and services.

  • CTO and Head of Product at Apply4 Technology, providing SaaS tools to some of the largest cities and local governments in the UK, US and New Zealand.
  • First CTO at LoveCrafts, a VC-backed e-commerce retailer, helping grow the business from almost nothing to £multi-million per year.
