Ian, Emily, Sam and Barn, the founders of One Big Circle, first worked together on building My Action Replay – a video platform enabling sportspeople at all levels to automatically capture and share their own sporting highlights. A highly scalable platform that captured and shared 1000s of hours of indexed replays across the globe, their start-up company was acquired by CricHQ, the world’s largest digital platform for cricket, in 2017.
Following the successful integration of the two systems the founding team moved on to create One Big Circle. Recognising the need for bespoke technical solutions to complex video and integration projects they began providing their services to a range of clients from Start-ups to Blue-chip – all who needed an innovative and expert approach to help achieve a solution. The OBC method is to get to the ‘nuts and bolts’ of any problem, drawing together all hardware and software to build an extensible scalable system, leaving no gaps between the technologies.
Collectively the team has decades of experience in the technology industry, particularly in digital video and hardware. They are focusing on growing the team – recruiting and developing the talent of the future – and ensuring a diverse and sustainable company. They also have fun along the way, enjoying an eclectic office playlist, a healthy Strava rivalry, a not-so-healthy office tuck shop, and a love of curry.
