Matthew Hodgson

The Matrix.org Foundation
Co-founder
Matthew Hodgson is technical co-founder of Matrix.org: a not-for-profit open source project focused on solving the problem of fragmentation in current Chat, VoIP and IoT technologies. By defining a new lightweight pragmatic open standard for federation/interoperability and releasing open source reference implementations, Matrix hopes to create a new ecosystem that makes open real-time-communication as universal and interoperable as email.



Matthew juggles Matrix with the roles of CEO and CTO of New Vector, the company behind Riot.im, the flagship collaboration app built on Matrix. Previously, as a technical lead at MX Telecom (acquired by Amdocs in 2010), Matthew designed & architected Amdocs’ next-generation Video/VoIP client and network infrastructure, and draws on his Internet background to rapidly deliver carrier-grade enhanced communication solutions to network operators. He has specialised in interactive video and telephony applications for over 16 years, including co-founding a digital marketing startup, and contracting roles at Accenture and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. He has a BA in Computer Science and Physics from the University of Cambridge, and has lectured on VoIP at Imperial College London.



Matthew believes in the virtues of open collaboration. We live in an era where we can benefit very easily from cross-industry inputs to foster innovation and we don't make enough out of it. He wants to change the world to give access to communication and privacy to everyone while keeping the user's experience at the heart of every new product and leaving everyone the choice of their provider.
