Ryan Blake

Software Engineer & Web Developer From South Africa

My name is Ryan Blake and working with technology has been a passion most of my life. I always loved seeing how technology can enrich people’s lives.
Even in school I helped my father’s business use technology to streamline their Admin and invoicing allowing them to focus on what mattered to them architecture and building beautiful homes.

I’ve worked with many companies both local and international.
Most projects have been in the financial sector and have streamlined difficult and complex systems.

I am great with people and enjoy a balanced lifestyle. So I also enjoy getting outdoors and away from technology.

I have had great experience building systems but I would like to move in a direction where I could lead teams in building great, sustainable systems.
