Staff Profile

Scott Egerton


Scott studied Forensic Computing at university and graduated from MMU in 2011 with one of the three highest degree scores of his year. He then went on to develop VOIP applications and CRM systems used by companies to improve and enhance their customer interactions. In 2013, Scott joined a multi-million pound online eCommerce company, establishing himself in their technical distribution team. He was involved here in liaising with couriers across Europe and ensuring all logistics were properly planned. As well as this, Scott was responsible for the development and maintenance of both customer-facing and back-end technical systems to manage product delivery. 2015 is when Scott joined Substance. Since becoming a technical developer, he has been involved in a broad range of projects and has extensive knowledge across the entire LAMP environment. His skills in dealing with complex statistics enhance his experience in this area. Outside work, Scott is a keen traveller with plans to travel as much of the world as possible – scaling Mount Vesuvius is already on the itinerary. He is also a dedicated animal fan and has rescued and re homed two cats.

Why Scott works at Substance

I moved back to Manchester city centre and wanted to work for a growing company which would really extend my skills as a developer. When the role at Substance came along, I knew it would be the perfect fit and it hasn’t let me down. My job lets me be creative and I’m consistently challenged, which I love.  In my spare time enjoy the benefits of my unlimited cinema card. It lets me not only watch the films but also listen to their soundtracks and scores which I love to do. I also make full use of my Burnley FC season ticket!
