Surj

Managing Director and Lead Consultant

As Lead Consultant, Surj advises at architect level, for Business and Systems Analysis. He works with enterprise customers to ensure they realise their goals.

He has 18 years’ experience of software development, and he has worked with Agile Software Development since 2007. He is renowned for his problem solving abilities, technical prowess, and very high standards.

To satisfy his desire to learn all things related to computer software, Surj undertook a 4 year Masters Degree from Imperial College London, in which he graduated with 1st Class Honours. Since then he has set up and run three successful software consultancies, Surge Online being the latest.

Nigel

Agile Scrum Project Manager

Nigel is responsible for ensuring that the digital products that we build at Surge Online are tailored towards delivering the educational outcomes that users need. He brings 15+ years of experience in the discovery and design of user experience and content, along with a strong technical understanding of delivering digital products.

He has worked with all of the big publishers in the UK on digital products from the original back-of-the-book CDs to whole Key Stage Learning Management systems (and most points in between). With a strong editorial background, Nigel is passionate about turning traditional page-based learning content into engaging digital experiences for users. His varied experience across design, writing and producing print and digital content mean that he can help you understand the challenges and opportunities around digital presentation, helping you deliver truly engaging digital content, not just a ‘book on screen’ product.

With a commitment to Agile processes and collaboration, experience in managing large distributed teams, and a pragmatic approach to incrementally delivering working software, Nigel’s goal is to take care of the detail while making sure the outputs and goals are kept clearly and simply communicated. He believes good project management is a complex and challenging process, but that he should make you think it looks easy.

Abhi

Senior Consultant

Joining the company as a Senior Software Developer in 2013, Abhi has now progressed to Senior Consultant and is responsible for both advising customers on their business goals and technical strategy, and for helping to implement technical solutions.

He has been instrumental in the successful implementation of bespoke virtual learning environments, communicating with clients, publishers and editors on a daily basis, alongside managing the development team.

Abhi’s solid educational background, communication skills, commercial experience, and personable nature, ensure that every project benefits from his involvement.
