Sebastian Sibelle Web development
Sebastian brings experience tying non-profits to modern technology. He has experience building donation platforms, education tools and content management systems. He learnt his trade working as a web developer and consultant for Squareweave helping clients in government, industry and the third sector translate their web concepts into reality.
Dave Pisek Web development
Dave started his journey in a little Austrian town called Innsbruck.
There he gained
experience as a full-stack web developer for a local startup and, at
times, feeding mountain goats.
Somehow he ended up in Sydney, where he specialized in Front End Development, and enjoyed working for companies like World Nomads and News Corp. The work there was good and helped him to grow as a developer but something was missing.
Chuffed was able to fill that gap - the perfect job: Doing some good by doing what I love.
