Zero Gravity tech team member Dan

Daniel St. Paul, Software Engineer

From Hong Kong's vibrant streets to the UK's athletic arenas, meet Dan: a first-class Sports Science grad who's both a techie and a game-changer. Remember Team Wales' epic performance at the 2014 Commonwealth Games? Dan was the brains behind the scenes, making waves as their only analyst. Not stopping there, 2015 saw him pivot to software engineering, birthing a sports data consultancy that teamed up with heavyweights like Team GB. With a rich tapestry of seven years crafting web apps, APIs, and diving deep into data, Dan landed at Zero Gravity. Not just as an engineer, but as our FIRST. Meshing his tech savvy with our social impact, he's here to level the playing field for students everywhere. Game on, Dan.

Zero Gravity team member Shiv

Shiv Patel, Fund Associate

Having graduated from UCL with a first-class Geography degree, Shiv isn't your typical Fund Associate. Climate change modeling, award-winning maps, and snagging UCL’s top award for Men’s Mental Health volunteering? That's just how he rolls. Now, at Zero Gravity, he's the dynamo behind the Scholarships—fundraising, overseeing operations, and ensuring deserving members get their shot. His Vodafone stint had him juggling roles from global sales to emerging tech, and he even earned a nod as Top Talent, landing in Vodafone’s global top 15%. Oh, and that win in Vodafone's Global NOVA Innovation Challenge with his AI brainwave? That was just him warming up for bigger tech-for-good moves. Off the clock, Shiv's a certified Mental Health First Aider, an avid marathoner, and always cheering on his favourite sports teams. Meet Shiv: Passion-packed, impactful, and always on the go.

He's deeply driven by the potential of tech in amplifying opportunities for young individuals. During his leadership stint in inner-city London schools, he championed the Highly Able strategy and literacy efforts. It was his role at a leading international school in Asia where the synergy of tech and education truly clicked for him. Today at Zero Gravity, Alex spearheads our Sixth Form recruitment, ensuring schools, colleges, and Multi-Academy Trusts consistently experience our impact.

Zero Gravity tech team member Jack

Jack Murphy, Senior Software Engineer

From the lecture halls of Dublin City University to the digital frontlines of tech, Jack Murphy’s software development journey has been nothing short of stellar. Graduating with a 2.1 in Computer Applications and Software Engineering, Jack first sharpened his tech toolkit at BearingPoint Ireland. There, he led the mammoth task of migrating roughly 5 million records from a 3-decade-old system to contemporary tech magic. But Jack's story didn't stop there. By 2020, he jumped into the bustling fintech scene of London with Singletrack Systems. Exploring Ruby on Rails, he crafted tailored customer management tools for the big players in banking and research. Fast forward to 2022, with 6 solid years of tech mastery, he saw an even bigger vision: impacting real lives. Enter Zero Gravity, where Jack's skills are now geared towards tech-for-good. Talk about using code for a cause.
