MEET OUR PEOPLE

We couldn’t be more proud of our talented team

Director | Entrepreneur | Artist B. Com, CA (SA), CFA

I’m a natural born entrepreneur focused on venture capital, and building businesses that offer serious competitive advantage.

 

After nearly 20 years of entrepreneurial endeavors, building businesses is now part of my DNA.

Technology – and the excitement of the disruptive change that it offers – presents an enormous opportunity. And that’s precisely why I co-founded SprintHive.

Director | CEO | Cyclist
ND Information Technology

I am most inspired by working in problem-solving environments that require fresh ideas and sustainable solutions. That’s exactly why I joined the SprintHive team as CEO in 2016, with the bold vision of driving digital transformation in the finance sector and beyond.

 

 

As an all-round techie and avid coder with experience at start-ups and tech giants alike, I have found that technology has the power to solve almost any problem. I believe that by finding innovative tech solutions to everyday obstacles – and backing them with logical, technical and business reasoning – we’re serving real people and giving more South Africans access to important financial services. This is the bedrock upon which SprintHive’s services are built.

CTO | Rock Climber

I love solving interesting and challenging problems, sometimes to unhealthy extremes! Over and above the satisfaction of building software that delivers measurable business value and delights customers, I enjoy designing and building the infrastructure to run such software that is scalable, resilient and high performance. I draw on my experience at Amazon Web Services to achieve this. I strongly believe in continuous improvement – there is always a more elegant solution to any given problem.

 

While I’m naturally a quiet person, I am most stimulated and deliver my best work when I am part of a diverse team that challenges my way of thinking.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: I am constantly challenged by interesting problems and I get to solve them together with a great team.

Head of Partnerships | Camper

I love building long term partnerships and working in the Fintech space. 

 

With 20+ years marketing experience, 13 of which are partnership management and financial services related, and 9 of which are working across East and West Africa partnering with Mobile Network Operators, Banks, Re-insurers and Insurers, I am excited to be part of the SprintHive team and journey.

 

I love being able to deliver real value to our partners, driving customer conversion rates with our Intelligent Customer Onboarding Solutions.

 

How I find working at SprintHive:

An amazing, supportive, humble and talented team combined with great partnership engagements makes working at SprintHive a fulfilling experience.

Chief Growth Officer | Chef

With 13 years’ experience in ICT, most of which were spent in the financial services sector, I have worked for Old Mutual Rest of Africa managing digital distribution across 12 African countries. In the last 3 years at AWS, I have enabled AWS to secure enterprise customers in Nigeria and Kenya, delivering results for enterprise customers and AWS. 

 

I will be spearheading SprintHive’s overall growth strategy, collaborating with product development teams, with the aim of making digital automation easy for financial institutions and customer facing enterprises. I will lead customer engagement and work closely with the CEO, and Head of Partnerships to fast-track digital product adoption and expansion.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: I am excited to join a team that is passionate in leveraging technology and data to develop financial solutions that drive digital transformation in the finance sector and beyond. I resonate with SprintHive’s value of ‘Think long, act short” it adds to my excitement.

 

Software Engineer | Horticulturist

I love the buzz you get when you compile and run code – and it works. I am passionate about designing quality software that people love to use. There is nothing better for me to receive positive feedback from people who use software that I have designed, implemented, tested, deployed and support.

 

I have worked in many industries: insurance, retail, media, human resourcing, financial, content distribution and data mining. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family. I make time to appreciate nature and to stay fit.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: Thanks to the learning that comes with developing an understanding of the business, as well as the ever-changing and growing technology landscape, I am constantly engaged and motivated.

Software Engineer | Tinkerer

I am a Java software developer with experience in Enterprise Java, Android and Web development.

 

I enjoy being part of a team that is working towards a common goal. I am a logical thinker, a problem solver and a quick learner, and I enjoy learning new technologies and facing new challenges.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: Coming to work makes me so happy everyday. Everyday I have a new challenge and being able to work through this with a world class team fills me with joy.

Partnership and Compliance officer | Braaimaster

The team is enormously skilled and takes great pride in any work that they set out to do and this is evident in the products that are created.

 

My time at SprintHive has challenged me for the better, to grow and become more than I was.

 

 

Outside of work I enjoy growing various plants, doing DIY around our home, spending time with my family and braaing.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: I was moved to join SprintHive based on their Value system and work culture.  It is a real pleasure being part of a team that truly lives their values and practises them not only in their work but also in their way of thinking. 

Finance Manager | Traveller

I have worked as a Financial Accountant and Manager in many industries (commercial businesses, charities, professional associations and educational institutions). Now working in the Fintech industry, I am proud to be part of the new emerging financial industry that applies technology and innovation to improve financial activities. It is different and exciting, and I learn something new every day.

 

I am organised, and I have integrity and a good sense of humor! I believe that helping people and businesses solve their problems and achieve their goals is an incredibly rewarding way to spend my time.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: Being able to help out with the logistical side of what makes the business tick means that I can play a huge role in helping SprintHive succeed — and I love that!

Software Engineer | Mathematician

I studied mathematics, but ended up as a software developer. I love working on hard problems, especially at companies like SprintHive that process a lot of data and derive insight from it. 

 

I love programming, whether it is old-fashioned procedural programming, object-oriented programming, functional programming or even logic programming, in statically- or dynamically-typed languages, and be it high-level scripting, or low-level optimised code.


How I find working at SprintHive: I’ve never worked at a company where all employees partake in discussions about the business as a whole and how it develops. At SprintHive, everyone knows how their work fits into the big picture. I am fortunate to work with such talented and capable people.

Interesting problems help me get up in the morning. My experience in business automation forces me to look out for process improvements with efficiency always on my mind. 

 

I love the constant learning, and understanding what tools are available to get the job done right. I prefer solutions that are simple and elegant.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: It’s challenging in the best ways and the amazing people that I get to call “my team” keep my morale as high as ever. We’re all extremely passionate about what we do.

Marketing Content Creator | Social Media Guru

I consider myself an artist in conceptualising, creating, and populating various platforms with insight-generated content. I’m family-oriented, highly motivated, driven, and a creative person who is always eager to learn more with minimal supervision.

 

 

As a digital marketing strategist, I understand the value of teamwork to drive results in meeting our business objectives. As a content creator, I love my ability to adapt to any working environment in developing people-solutions to increase our online engagement, following, overall social reach, leads, and ultimately, conversions.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: The working environment at SprintHive is refreshing. Amongst working alongside industry experts, the culture is employee focused and decisions are collaborated.

It gives me great joy to perfect things, so my current role at SprintHive is made for me. I enjoy being challenged and intellectually stimulated. It is always important for me to be in an environment which allows for growth and new opportunities.

When I am not working, I love making music, playing the piano, and singing.

Everyone has a great sense of humour which makes the day’s work even more enjoyable . I really appreciate that the team is always keen to help and mentor.




Machine Learning Engineer | Dancer

Having studied Mathematics and Data Science, I feel fortunate to have an opportunity to implement and expand these skills. I find the insights that can be extracted from large bodies of data and machine learning very interesting. The chance to make useful improvements to SprintHives systems is so motivating for me.

 

Outside of work I enjoy attending and teaching dance classes or pursuing creative projects like drawing and sewing.

 

How I find working at SprintHive: It is wonderful to be surrounded by such experienced people who are also generous with their time, passionate about their work and so pleasant to be around.

Software Engineer | Adrenaline junkie

Being a software developer is a never ending journey because of the endless width and depth. Although at times intimidating, it is a world filled with new concepts to learn and areas of continuous refinements and improvement. In that way it is a world that allows you to be different to one another and to learn, and collaborate with each other. Adrenaline Junkie. I love to experience something new, because I feel each new experience adds to a piece of who you become and how you think. From public speaking, to swimming, to jiu jitsu, I love the feeling of being awake and excited. The scariest experiences are oftentimes character areas least explored. 

 

How I find working at SprintHive:  I feel incredibly grateful to be working with a group of individuals who have a high standard that is reflected in the work done as well as the support they provide. It feels like an honour to be able to learn and also work with people who have great character and skill. One of the greatest joys is to know that the good work done and effort put forth
