About Us

  • Marcus Roberts


    I earned a PhD in Computer Science from Nottingham University in 1997 in the then new topic of Internet search, followed by post-doctoral research at Queen Mary University London in distributed system security.

    I was then swept up in the dot com boom working on website development and hosting at various companies before joining Nittygritty as a director in 2006. Our first application from that era, BigFilebox, still serves customers today, 16 years later. Atvero became a standalone company in June 2022.

    The development team has grown over that time and I now manage three developers as well as the sales and marketing for our primary product Atvero. Whilst I coded the first prototypes of the product it’s now rare that I get to code any more, instead leading the team in making architectural decisions and helping the product reach a wide market of customers.

    In my spare time I’m a core team member for the Grain project which allows me to engage a passion in building a next generation language, developer tools, improve the developer experience and learn more about the next big thing: Web Assembly.

  • Allan Chaplin


    Qualifiying as a Systems Engineer, I’ve spent the last 25 years in the software development across at tech leaders in the Defence, Telecoms, Mobile Computing and Medical industries. After over 10 years as a C++ software engineer, I moved to Nittygritty in 2009 as a web developer. At Nittygritty I have contributed to the portfolio of products including Bigfilebox, Shoski and Syncview. I moved to Atvero full time in June 2022 when Atvero became a separate company.

    My Atvero mission has involved developing the Atvero product from the start using new web technologies, including ReasonML, ReScript, Azure and MS Graph.

    I now lead the Atvero team and focus on Atvero customer satisication and support. In my spare time I like, live music growing vegetables and looking after our retired commercial hens.

  • Eden Ruffell


    I joined Atvero as a Junior Software Engineer in 2019 a year after working as a summer internship with Nittygritty, having just graduated from Queen Mary University London with a degree in Computer Science. During my first year, I helped build and officially launch Atvero, contributing to improving the performance and overall design of the product.

    My Atvero mission as Product Manager has been to identify and preempt the every evolving requirements of those in the AECO industry, planning this in our public Road Map and driving the development team to turn that vision into a reality. Over the years I have taken on various challenges including redesigning the Atvero product to make it more intuitive to our users, designing and building our website, and curating the knowledge base for all our Atvero help guides.

    With my passion for user experience and design I have been able to continue transforming Atvero, paving the way for bigger and more exciting endeavours in the near future. In my spare time I build and explore deep learning networks, practise latin and chess.

  • Louis Boyle


    Having attended the Web Development Immersive course from General Assembly, in 2018 I joined Nittygritty as a junior JS/React Developer. I started by working on existing products, not long into my time here we decided to adopt a promising new meta-language for JavaScript called ReasonML to make React-based web apps, one of them was Atvero. Building on the MS Cloud infrastructure also solved many problems, providing novel features and new challenges.

    My mission as an Atvero developer sees me building new features and maintaining the product, making sure Atvero continues to grow and adapt to a changing environment.

    My current focus is to learn about underpinning decisions like tooling and platform for a project, how to make them, what to consider and what the implications might be.

  • Tra Thu Hoang


    I joined the Atvero team as a marketing intern in June 2021. As a fresh graduate, I feel extremely lucky to have landed a role that ticks all the boxes of what I was looking for in a graduate job, especially in the middle of the pandemic.

    My responsibilities mainly include creating marketing assets in various mediums and monitoring digital campaigns, with an overall goal of leveraging Atvero’s brand image and amplifying the voice of the product in the AEC industry.

    The Atvero team has really given me the valuable opportunity to work in a supportive, inclusive and welcoming environment where I am constantly learning new things everyday.

    Seeing Atvero’s branding and online presence being gradually improved day by day has given me the motivation to continue enhancing my knowledge and skillset in order to make more positive contributions to the team.

  • Chisom Iwuoha


    I joined Atvero as a Customer Success Manager in August 2022. I will be completing my Masters Degree in Business Management at the University of Hull, England in September 2022, and I was really happy that Atvero agreed to bring me onboard to help my continuous learning and development process. Prior to Atvero I worked at Flutterwave as a Customer Experience specialist and a Product Analyst. In these roles I was able to proffer solutions to problems and provide exceptional service to customers.

    My Atvero Mission as a Customer Success Manager would be building loyalty and strong lasting relationships with customers. With my passion for customers success and retention, I will continue putting Atvero Customers first and ensuring that they have a positive experience with our products and services.

    I look forward to growth, tackling more challenges, providing solutions to issues and doing my best in the future. In my spare time I like networking, baking and traveling.

    Onboarding Consultant

    Having worked in the tech space since I graduated, I have found that my passion lies with working with Client’s to learn a new software in an easy way, which Atvero ticks the boxes for. My first job after graduation saw me working as a Delivery Manager working with international tech firms such as Microsoft which is where my knowledge of SharePoint originated.

    I joined Atvero after 2 years working at CMap Software, where I was working as a Data Analyst and then a Consultant. When the opportunity came up to move to Atvero I jumped at the chance to start something new and exciting. Taking on the role of Onboarding Consultant at Atvero has given me a chance to work with an array of Client’s around the globe across the AECO space.

    My Atvero mission as an Onboarding Consultant is to provide a simple and effective way for our Client’s to integrate Atvero into their everyday working lives. I strive to make sure that we help those in the AECO space adopt a Document Management Solution that aligns to the best practice ways of working.

    Spending all my working time on computers and with technology, outside of work I spend most of my time in the great outdoors with my dog, mainly in the Peak or Lake Districts. Having grown up in Germany and The Netherlands, I also love to go exploring new places in the UK and around the world to immerse myself in different environments.
