About the staff

Murray

developer

If there are two things I really enjoy, they are problem solving and learning. These two passions intersect nicely in the world of software development. Three years professional experience across a variety of software projects: iOS and Android mobile apps, cross-platform desktop applications, full-stack web development.

Particular interest in adopting best practises to deliver quality solutions, from CI/CD and automated testing through to infrastructure-as-code and cloud services, such as AWS.

Outside the office, you’d likely find me listening or making music, outside playing soccer or building another app – just for fun!

Tim

developer

I specialise in software development and am highly interested in how the fundamental building blocks of a software language are utilised to create complex software libraries as well as efficient and secure products.

I am studying a double degree in Mechatronic Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Wollongong where I have learnt both through the course of my degree and my own studies to utilise a variety of programming languages including JavaScript, Java, C, C++ and Python.

I enjoy the challenge of working at ZGuy to create software products for web, desktop and mobile platforms, as well as continually growing my skill and learning new ones.

Luka

developer

I’m an experienced software engineer with a focus on backend development and design. I particularly enjoy designing systems to meet customer needs as efficiently as possible.I’ve had six years of industry experience, which included five years in leadership roles.

I’m particularly experienced with Java and am familiar with PHP, Javascript, C++ and C#. I also have extensive experience managing resources, deadlines and schedules.

Outside of work I enjoy reading and writing fiction.

Michael

developer

I get a kick out of building things that other people can find useful. That’s why I enjoy working as a software developer at ZGuy.

I started my software developer career working on frontend applications, using Javascript and various Javascript frameworks. It wasn’t long, however, before I had to start working on backend application and devops, and I’m now also comfortable working with Node and Java on backend apps, and with Docker and AWS to get apps deployed.

If I’m not in front of a computer, you’ll most likely find me playing indie tabletop roleplaying games somewhere.
