I’m stoked to welcome Richard Simes to the Timely tech team. Richard hasn't been with us long and is already coding great new features and fixes for our customers.

Welcome to the team, Richard!

Richard is based on the beautiful Otago Peninsula and will work closely alongside our other Dunedin-based developer, Ryan Dickison.

I’ve admired the incredible talent of the Timely tech team ever since their first release and am incredibly honoured to join the ranks. Being part of a team that cares passionately about their customers, product and staff makes me look forward to starting work each day.

After almost finishing a chemistry degree at Victoria University, Richard tried a first year Computer Science paper on a whim and never looked back. He has since spent nearly 6 years at Trade Me (New Zealand’s biggest e-commerce website) honing his development skills.

Before starting with Timely, Richard spent a year as a full-time dad looking after his daughter, Ella. Awesome stuff.

We are delighted to have someone of Richard’s calibre on the team – welcome!
