Hi, I’m John owner of JSE Computing, I have been involved with computers for most my life starting back in 1981, my friend’s father worked in AVX (an electronics factory in Coleraine) and “built” his own computer – this turned out to be a ZX81. My friend and I then spent hours typing in programs to this ZX81.
Of course, the bug had bitten then and so ‘Santa’ just had to deliver a computer for Christmas which, of course, was the world famous ZX Spectrum. Again, I spent hours typing in and creating programs on it. A career in IT was inevitable… I carried on my love for programming throughout school and then onto Robert Gordons University in Aberdeen, followed by another year at Magee in Derry. I then took up employment with Parity Solutions in Antrim where I remained for three years before moving onto an EPOS company.
Starting my own business was always in the back of my mind and I was constantly supplying IT solutions to SME’s outside of my normal employment working hours. In January 1998 I decided to make the jump and JSE Computing Ltd was formed. I haven’t looked back since, with clients now ranging from Chevron in Houston Texas, to local manufacturing companies and single person entities.

At JSE Computing our mission is to provide bespoke IT Solutions to SMEs throughout the UK, Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland. In order to achieve this, we provide businesses with a proactive IT Service – similar to the business having their own IT manager.
Most IT companies will specialise in either IT support or software development, however, at JSE Computing we can bring both of these services to the customer in one package. Providing the customer with a personalised trustworthy, confidential service and that is delivered without the complicated IT jargon.
