Julia Bell is the Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of Juriba where she oversees development and business operations. In her role as COO, she drives the road map for Dashworks and ensures product excellence.
Julia is passionate about the power of data and has seen the knowledge it can bring to transform organizations. She started Juriba to realize her belief that all organizations can make gigantic leaps forward with the right information. She is always looking for new and innovative ways to improve both Dashworks and life at Juriba.
Julia has worked in IT for almost 20 years and understands technology from the ground up. She has extensive experience in both start-ups and financial institutions, such as Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas and JPMorganChase. At the latter, she oversaw multiple desktop teams across Europe and Asia, spearheading many successful initiatives to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
Julia’s belief that the right technology can improve anything extends to her home and family life. She lives in a connected world where everything from her smoke alarms to her children’s party invites can be controlled from her smart phone. She is constantly looking for ways to make life more efficient — essential for keeping on top of her children’s many activities: everything from rock climbing to advanced Lego construction.
Julia makes the most of London life with her daughters, and is a regular attendee at many of the cultural, food and sports events that the city has to offer for both adults and children. She always has a project on the go, and currently this is renovating an uninhabitable wreck of a house to be her family home. Julia manages to fit in being a regular runner to keep healthy and lots of cooking to become unhealthy again. She also throws an awesome dinner party.
