Arron Edwards | CEO
Arron is a natural problem solver. As an experienced business owner with a tech background, he looks at things from a number of different angles. He knows how technology could be applied to gain efficiencies, but is just as comfortable with non-tech solutions. Arron believes in establishing partnerships and building on them. He excels at bringing the right people together to get the best possible solution. He loves helping people and solving complex problems. The more complex the problem the better, because it means Bravesight becomes a trusted partner rather than just another vendor. To come up with a great solution that delivers real value or ROI to a customer is what pleases him the most.
Karen Saunders | Executive Assistant
When you make contact with Bravesight, you’ll soon find out what a pleasure Karen is to deal with. She most enjoys working with a variety of customers, learning about their businesses and helping them solve problems. Karen joined us in April 2013, bringing a wealth of knowledge in finance, accounting and customer service with her. Besides being an absolute gem for Bravesight customers and our entire team, Karen is a salsa dancing mum of twin girls who volunteers at the local Riding for the Disabled and loves to crochet. She also appreciates trying weird and wonderful herbal teas. With Karen’s impeccable attention to detail and strong communication skills, your project is in good hands.
Lalicia Kok | Project Manager
Ex-pat Lalicia came to NZ from South Africa in December 2018 with her young family. She is a Certified ScrumMaster and became part of the Bravesight team in March 2019. Lalicia brings a wealth of experience in project management with her, although in a past life she used to be a DJ. Lalicia has a strong dedication to giving our clients the best return on their investment, and likes that we are dynamic and focussed on delivery in a casual environment. That as a team, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and just get the job done. Adding value, being creative and taking initiative is what Lalicia is all about. She is a positive, self-managed go-getter who delivers under pressure.
Ryan Burness | Software Developer
A valued member of the Bravesight team since 2013, Ryan is a whiz at e-commerce development and user interface design. He has designed, developed and implemented programs in c#, asp.net MVVM, php and mySQL that have made a real difference to the way our clients do business. Ryan studied Science at the University of Auckland, and majored in Computer Science. His first job was as an intern for our CEO Arron and lucky for us, he’s still here! That’s because Ryan, in his own words, feels valued within this inclusive team. When not at work, you’ll find him playing sports, or out exploring and photographing beautiful New Zealand.
Alex Te Paa | Software Developer
The constant stream of interesting technical problems to solve is what gets Alex excited about his work, but that’s common in creative tech. What keeps this talented software developer with Bravesight since joining us in June 2015 is our culture, which he describes as family. At a young age, Alex built computers and set up home servers. He really caught the bug when studying computer science at college. Today, he’s driven by the constantly growing knowledge required as our industry expands and with that, figuring out the most stable and efficient way to get the desired outcome for our clients. For Alex, it’s about making people’s lives easier through our systems and processes.
Edmar Marinduque | Software Developer
Our backend-guy, based in the tropical and hot Cebu, Philippines. Edmar loves to get his hands dirty interfacing our systems to our client's back-office systems. Edmar loves a good API challenge and tends to work quietly in the background beavering away and supporting our New Zealand-based developers. Since joining the team in the late 2010's, he's grown as a developer honing his skills on the detailed work that ensures our clients sites keep running 24/7. Edmar enjoys island hopping and spending time with his family - quite typical for a Filipino.
