About us

We wear all the hats...

Having worked with Umbraco for over 6 years, we have seen many iterations of a friendly CMS that allows for unique, bespoke implementations of pretty much anything you can imagine! In that time, we have not been idle. Our founder, Laura Weatherhead, is an Umbraco Certified Expert as well as an Umbraco MVP 2019, and we look forward to many more years of promoting and engaging with the changing face of the Umbraco application and community!

Outwith Umbraco, we use a lot of React (Redux, Router & Gatsby implementations) to manifest our visions into reality. We are big lovers of Typescript for use with all JS frameworks and promote the safety that it offers wherever we can. We are also working quite extensively with GraphQL as a way of shaping and serving data to applications, and Laura did a conference talk at the Umbraco Spark Conference this year on using Umbraco with GraphQL.

For the greater good!

On top of enjoying a good problem solving opportunity, we are also super keen on building things that are meaningful (or, at least, helpful!)

In the past Spun has been involved with:

  • mentoring aspiring young developers
  • working with the privacy sector to make app trackers more transparent
  • developing educational games to support learning logical skills at a young age

We are currently working on some proof of concept data architecture to try and make the world of carbon footprinting a more transparent place! Want to know more? Use the contact form below to get in touch
