Hi, I'm Marko

Get To Know Me
Hello, I'm Marko

My story starts in Nelspruit, South Africa where I was born. We moved around a lot as a family and after living in Dar Es Salaam(Tanzania), Maputo(Mozambique) and Nelspruit again, we moved to Zimbabwe where I finished my Cambridge 'O'-levels and 'A'-levels. It was during this time that my passion for tech was sparked.

I studied Bsc. Mathematical Sciences at Stellenbosch University majoring in Computer Science. I walked into first year without ever programming in my life and it was a crazy battle to catch up and get on track. I really started enjoying what I was doing by third year and decided to set up my CV on the Web. This is the result.

My first job was at Estuary Solutions in Stellenbosch as a Software Developer from January 2017 until July 2020. During my time at Estuary Solutions I worked on various projects but the main focus was changing the Swordfish Online Trading system to incorporate the JSE's ITaC project into our system. That project went live in April 2020.

In July 2020 I moved to Quench Delivery Group into a Software Engineer role. We started with a full rewrite of the system moving over to a full microservice architecture. I have been working in Ruby on Rails and Go Lang, writing mostly JSON API's.

I believe my work ethic, the belief that I can do anything and my passion to carry the vision of a company forward is what sets me apart from others with similar technical skills.
