I am university-educated with a background in Information Technology and Business with an emphasis on software development, with many years of working experience developing and maintaining IT systems as a System’s Analyst and Application Developer for international and national corporate giants maintaining their legacy systems. However, I left my job to pursue my interest of studying Full-Stack Web Development and Design, which I graduated from, in order to fulfil my dream of working remotely in a role which would be both challenging and fulfilling on a personal level, as well as filling a gap in the market.
Personality-wise I am highly analytical, methodical, logical and employ lateral thinking in my approach to problem-solving. I am a thinker and a doer and am able to work alone but also believe in a collaborative approach when a holistic solution is needed which has wider impact than the immediate problem at hand. I am empathetic and diplomatic in nature, and believe mutual respect, understanding alternative perspectives, as well as conflict management and effective communication are key skills in establishing good business and interpersonal relationships.
I was similarly attracted to Ubuntu Synergy as it was in alignment with my personal values and goals. Ubuntu Synergy stands for: “I am, because we are. Together.” Combining a salient philosophy of caring and sharing, with the strength of unity and community. We can determine the course of humanity and our destiny, by challenging the digital status quo. Ubuntu I am, because we are. Bound together in ways that are invisible, humanity is all about being one. Caring unconditionally, and sharing with everyone around us. Synergy The combined power of a group of people, when they work well together, is greater than the results achieved by everyone working separately. Our strength lies in unity.
