Eoin Bailey - Co-founder of Hit The Road

Co-founder at Hit the Road



Work category




Currently studying in University College Dublin for my PhD. PhD research requires dedication beyond a standard position, requiring the in-depth specification of a single area of expertise. Trasnferable skills that result from a PhD include problem solving, intensive research abilities, technical report writing, problem isolation and problem solving.

Prior to my PhD I worked as a freelance IT consultant, developing websites, helping users with software issues, developing code.

I have an involvement in open-source projects. Developing for open-source projects enables my code to be scrutinised by other developers, ensuring all code is developed to a high standard. Simultaneously end-users require that issues be dealt with in a speedy manner. The added complexity of developers and end-users spread across the globe must also be dealt with.

After being awarded a first-class honours degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering in Trinity College Dublin in 2003, I studied for a further year in TCD, attending the Networks and Distrubuted Systems Masters.
