Anton Smith

work

Anton is our Lead Developer and ensures all of our systems and methods are on point allowing us to be masters of the digital universe! He is armed with a Bachelors Degree in Information Technology and made some good headway towards a Masters in Design Enterprise from Otago Polytechnic. With him, he brings the perfect blend of skills and experiences from the IT industry.

Anton's role is a mix of technical administration, custom development, specification, project scoping and maintenance (saving the world when needed too). Immersed in frameworks such as SilverStripe and Laravel in the PHP world for some of largest custom projects such as eComplus. Anton also keeps all of the things running efficiently for our clients; maintaining servers, updating hosting or cloud services and researching new solutions to make life even easier for our clients and us.

Outside of work, Anton enjoys making the world around him better (literally, through automation). He loves IOT and takes any chance he can to streamline life at home (and work). He's developed our very own Firebrand Jukebox integrated with Spotify (see it in action here if we're listening to something). With that, he's implemented a "sneeze alert" to warn us since his are possibly the loudest you will ever witness. Anton is also partial to the odd stint of gaming with cat Odin the destroyer nearby (he's another Fortnite fan). 

Away from the computer Anton spends a crazy amount of time gymming and completing gym challenges throughout the year. Just like Georgina, Anton is pretty dedicated to his diet plan and routine. He likes to get out for walks and drives in the beautiful spots surrounding Dunedin with a camera in hand.
