When we initially hired Jake at Mindwork Labs we knew, because of his age, we would be taking a gamble. But through Jake's ability to pick up new front end frameworks and techniques quickly, and his tenacity to learn new things and take in new information, we realised we'd made the right choice.

During the England riots of 2011, RiotCleanup was created to spread information of what towns and cities needed to be cleaned up due to disruption around the United Kingdom.
With 100,000 volunteers signed up to the then-dubbed “Broom Army”, the five days from August 6th to August 11th were an extremely successful and uplifting time for communities across the UK. Most areas were attended and cleaned up within two days, and smaller, less critical areas in the following three days. RiotCleanup was nominated and subsequently won a place in the finals for the BT Community Impact Award at the 2012 Technology 4 Good Awards.
