Welcome to the professional website of Jonathan Gilmore.

I am a very experienced IT professional with more than 30 years of experience in the industry. A solid background in software development, security related systems and communications, wired and wireless networks, embedded systems, GSM and smart card technologies, banking and financial systems,.  I have many years of experience in system integration, implementation and team leadership, with sound IT consultancy qualities and a proven track record.

I am proud to have consistently managed successful assignments and projects, attributable to thorough and accurate IT disciplines and business knowledge supported by an excellent technical background and very good inter-personal and communication skills.

I've been working in IT since 1984 and have operated as a freelance agent from 1989 through 1999, and then, more recently since 2006. My original training was in Electrical Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, working for organisations such as Siemens before moving into (what would later become) electronic banking with Barclays/First National Bank, Nedcor and other leading financial organisations in Southern Africa. I'm proud to have been instrumental in the implementation and launch of  one of the earliest Cash Management, Corporate Electronic Banking and Cashless Payment Systems in the world.

In the mid-90's, I started getting more and more involved in the cryptographic, embedded and device technologies, eventually motivating my move (with my family) to Surrey in the UK in 1999.

Since moving to the UK, I have been involved in various embedded telephony projects. I was team leader in the development of an embedded internet smart-phone for Hewlett-Packard, working closely with specialists, suppliers, and customers all around the world.  In 2001 I moved into the wireless/GSM arena, working primarily with Infineon and Ericsson technologies, as well as the most modern UI/MMI systems.  In recent years I have worked extensively with advanced wireless cryptographic voice and smartcard technologies, GPRS, WAP, MMS, eMail, GPS, Vehicle tracking and Asset Tracking systems.
