Jason is a creative and talented full stack developer and an all-round good chap. He joined Youmanage in 2013 as part of a Graduate placement programme whilst studying at Stirling University. Jason has always kept very busy, whether it be writing up his dissertation, or happily working on special and specific product enhancement projects. Jason enjoys many technological pursuits out with web development, including playing computer games and spending far too much on the latest “must have” gadget. When he isn’t glued to a computer screen, he regularly visits the cinema, participates in sport and listens to music.

Everyone knows him as the Dark Knight who strikes terror into the hearts of criminals in Stirling City, but at Youmanage we discover another facet of this mysterious caped crusader. Not only is David the world's greatest detective, but he also has one of the greatest scientific and analytical minds on Earth. Although he has no superpowers of his own, David is often the key to Youmanage victories.
