Kristian Glass

I run Moorhen Solutions Ltd., a micro-consultancy helping businesses grow and scale their technology and systems, providing a sort of CTO-as-a-Service, as well as training and due-diligence work.

I was the CTO at LaterPay, a payments startup, from 2015 to 2018. In that time, I grew the 100% distributed tech team from ~5 to ~30, led the platform migration from co-located servers to AWS, managed PCI-DSS compliance, and more. Prior to that, I was Head of Systems at Taptu, a mobile search engine.

I've given a number of talks, and I'm eager to do more. I've spoken about a range of subjects, from an introductory Python tooling talk at PyDiff, to avoiding harmful hiring practices at PyCon UK. If you'd like me to speak at your event, drop me an email at

I am a founder and trustee of the UK Python Association, and a founder and director of the PyCon UK Society Ltd. I have been the treasurer of PyCon UK from 2016 to 2019, and the organiser of NHS Hackday Cambridge 2013, a medical technology hackathon.
