Head of Technology, EMEA, Ben Rooney is building Apply Digital’s production hub in Amsterdam by hiring top-tier talent to support project needs and identifying how to scale up easily and cost-effectively. Working with clients and internal teams to find the best solution, Ben helps define the architecture and which technologies fit best. His enthusiasm for creating a positive, fun work environment is something he hopes to achieve with our Amsterdam office.

Ben’s career has taken him across the world, from a Surrey-based credit union all the way to Amsterdam, where he helped grow digital agency Blast Radius’s office as a technical architect. His experience starting his own agency means he’s worn several hats, including client services, project management, developer, and beyond.

When Ben isn’t working, he loves watching and playing sports as well as grabbing a drink with his friends. His favorite apps include Reddit and Plex.
