Hi, I'm Alex.

CTO of Loopin and king of the north

About me

My name is Alexander Jack Hughes, but you can call me Alex. I'm a full-stack engineer and builder of high-growth startups. To give you a quick history lesson; I've been coding for the better part of a decade, whilst achieving an MSc in Computer Science and writing a few things for Hackernoon.

I can name drop if you'd like?

Right now, I'm the CTO of Loopin- a startup driving much needed change in building startup culture. Before that I worked at a couple of pretty successful startups, Tumelo and Huckletree included. And before that, I designed the UI/UX for UpdraftPlus - which, with more than 3 million downloads is one of the most downloaded plugins on WordPress.

But enough about me, how have you been?

What I've been writing

What next?

A little less than a decade ago I quit my job, spent my last £100 on tinned food, and began freelancing full-time with zero clients. Jump forward a few years and I'm the CTO of Loopin, which in my not so humble opinion is about to revolutionise how startups build culture remotely.

How? Well right now I'm in the middle of writing a book about exactly that; documenting everything from how I got my first client, to how to build a website with no experience.

It still needs a bit of polish, which is why I've decided to release it chapter by chapter to everyone who wants it - just subscribe below and I'll add you to the list!
