Hello! I'm

Dan Cryer

Hello! I’m Dan Cryer, a technical leader and software development specialist based in Cheshire UK. I currently lead the technical team at Gear4music.com as Technology Director.

I come from a software development background, specialising primarily in DevOps, PHP, databases, .NET and related technologies. These days my role is more about leadership, people management and effective delivery of work within technology teams.

How can I help you?

Technical Consultancy / Fractional CTO

Not every business that needs web-based systems has the skills in house to design and plan such a system, or to find the right people to build it for them. I can help to fill that gap.

Keen to build a technical team in-house? I can help you set up processes and recruit a top-class team. If you're facing issues with existing processes, I can help you fix them.

Got an existing system you would like independently reviewing? Need advice on a technology proposal you've been given? I can help give you clarity.

Neurodiversity Advice & Support

I was diagnosed with ADHD just a couple of years ago, and have invested a signficant amount of time in understanding neurodiversity. I've delivered training on neurodiversity to managers, technologists and youth groups.

I can help you understand your responsibilities, how you can be a neurodiversity friendly employer, and advise on specific issues as required.

Outdoors & Youth Leadership

I hold current Lowland Leader and Camping Leader qualifications from Mountain Training UK, as well as being a Duke of Edinburgh Award Supervisor and Assessor. I can help you to plan, run and supervise walking, camping or DofE expeditions.

On top of this, with over half a decade of youth leadership experience, I can help you plan and run compelling activities for young people.
