Meet the Team

Jon Harris
SIMPL

Jon has been working on the web since 2000. He is the founder of Simpl and leads on product development, creative direction and future strategy. Or, to put it another way, he is making it up as he goes along. Jon can often be spotted on Mini adventures.

Chris Staplehurst
SIMPL

Chris heads up the marketing at Simpl. He is a bag of enthusiasm, an entrepreneur and enjoys social media statistics. He loves networking and scribbling with a notepad and pen. A Leicester City supporter and a gardener who hopes to make Simpl even more ‘fruitful’!

Melodie Thompson
SIMPL

Melodie is Simpl's content creator. An avid writer, she is on the lookout for helpful articles and tips for the Simpl Community. A passionate traveller, when not at her laptop, she can be found searching the globe for great local cafés or untouched beaches.

Rob Borley
DOOTRIX

Rob heads up app-building company Dootrix, where he is the sounding board for app functionality and design. He loves turning fantastic ideas into apps and has written the word ‘Simpl’ so many times that he can no longer spell ‘simple’. Not surprising, as he’s also a ’Spurs supporter.

Kevin Smith
DOOTRIX

Kev is also a Dootrix guy and is the technical lead for the Simpl production team. He’s the man with magic in his fingers: apparently producing something as simple to use as Simpl is not as simple as it looks. Kev is a paper-folding ninja and is the only person in the world to not have a Facebook account.
