OUR PEOPLE – Bigger team, global reach
Very sadly and suddenly in August last year, we lost the author and founder of RCubed, Chris Jones to cancer.
We were extremely lucky to be able to get Rehan Bouwer back to the K2fly team as Chief Architect for RCubed. Rehan co-wrote the RCubed system with Chris before heading off to learn other skills outside Specsoft. Given our growth, we have added 10 new highly-skilled people to the team, across Germany, South Africa and Perth, to support RCubed and scale up our overall software operations, including:
Rehan Bouwer as the new Chief Architect for RCubed, with two new software developers in South Africa added to the team.
