Our People: Daniel Whitford

Dan is a Software Engineer at NCR Edinburgh. He was previously served as a submariner in the Royal Navy before leaving for university and joins NCR after two years as a cyber security engineer in the defence industry.

As well as software development Dan is interested in all things cyber security, and was a finalist at the Cyber Security Challenge while at university.

He enjoys the engineering lead culture at NCR and its location close to Edinburgh city centre. He has escaped the daily commute to London to live in Edinburgh, a city where almost everything is within walking distance and he never has to get on a train again.

Dan is a keen Southampton fan and regularly attended home games, although living 400 miles away will make this more difficult in the future.
