Every week we will place one of our team members in the spot light and get to know them a little bit better. This week we sat down with Tim, back-end developer and nature conscious fitness buff!
Where were you born and where did you grow up?
Johannesburg born and raised.
What was the first job you can remember you ever wanted to do?
I remember wanting to be an astronomer. That is because my dad is very passionate about astronomy.
When did you know for the first time, that you wanted to work in software development?
I started programming in high school and really enjoyed that, but it was only in 2018 when I spent a week at a startup that I realised that I would like to make a career out of software.
What is your favourite Dev Tool?
Visual Studio Code. Fantastic!
What is your favourite part of your job at WeBill?

You definitely the fittest guy in the office. What inspires you to exercise and stay healthy? And what advice do you have for devs that sit at their desks most of the day?
I’ve always been interested in human performance and trying to eek out little bits of performance here and there. So as a holistic view of the human there are various things that need to fall into place to perform optimally. One of them is exercise. Others are diet, sleep and caffeine of course. Always more caffeine.

I have a very specific genre of gaming. I play Call of Duty offline multi player and that is it.

I do Crossfit. I used to do rowing.
