Andrew Simpson

Life before Shopcreator

I have had a varied background prior to joining Shopcreator with everything from lithographic printing to farming. I made the decision to break into the IT world and joined my previous employee in a technical support capacity.

Andrew’s Shopcreator story

I joined Shopcreator’s technical support department in April 2000 in the middle of the ecommerce boom period when everyone thought merely owning an ecommerce website would make you rich. For the next 8 months I provided customer support and technical assistance to our customers. I had had some previous experience writing learning websites for York College, these skills were utilised with a move into a newly created department at Shopcreator called Systems Integration, where bespoke requirements were provided for our customers.

Shopcreator life

The majority of my time at Shopcreator is spent supporting our technical support department with customer enquiries and producing custom functionality for clients. When I am not in the office you can either find me scuba diving or coaching an under 11 girls football team.
