👋 Hello! I'm Jake Mulley. I'm a hands-on technical leader, software engineer, and technical architect, all rolled into one.
I have 10 years experience working within the public and private sectors, as well as with agencies, startups and charities.
I'm currently Lead Technical Architect at the UK government's Ministry of Justice.
Day to day, I regularly work on:
- Modernising legacy products, services, and infrastructure
- Defining and building technical architecture, specialising in serverless
- Building accessible services with progressive enhancement
- Designing data-driven and domain-driven services
- Collaborating across stakeholders to get buy-in and define technical strategies
To do this, I tend to utilise whatever is best for the job at hand, though I often use:
|Backend development||Node, Python, Ruby, Rails, PHP, Laravel, Lumen, Go|
|CI/CD pipelines||GitHub Actions, Circle, Jenkins, GoCD|
|Issue tracking||Jira, GitHub Projects|
|Version control||Git (inc. GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket)|
Some of my work is open source on GitHub. You can also find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or you can email me.

Technical Architect at Ministry of Justice
Aug 2020 – Mar 2021
Prior to becoming Head of Hosting & Digital Operations, I was Technical Architect for the Modernisation Platform.
The Modernisation Platform vision is:
a single platform which allows the Ministry of Justice to modernise services, and run them in a unified, scalable way
I led a multi-disciplinary team and built a platform that:
- automated environment provisioning
- automated security baselines within AWS
- enforced CI/CD for infrastructure configuration and deployment
- started to automate networking configuration to centralise networking management for legacy services
I also started to centralise and maintain best practises within the Ministry of Justice's AWS estate, including introducing:
- AWS SSO for authentication into AWS accounts
- centralised security services and monitoring
- and more...
