Ashley is passionate about WordPress and has built LightSpeed into one of the most sought-after WordPress website development companies in Cape Town, employing 11 people, with national as well as international clients.
As Operations and Project Manager for LightSpeed and FeedMyMedia, Barbara handles the financial and administrative management tasks for the company, as well as the team’s well being and dynamics. Her main contribution on the projects side is website user testing, however she gets involved in project management when there is an overflow of tasks on that front.
Joe is responsible for general project management, client relations, project costings, clients consultations, website strategy, work allocations , and everything inbetween. When not driving the whip he can be found making music, trolling the internet or enjoying the great outdoors.
As resident Content and Social media Manager, Barend’s daily activities are centered around the curation, creation, publication and marketing of all LightSpeed’s web content and messaging. His philosophy towards web content is that it should be usable, original, entertaining, educational and serve a business goal while retaining its integrity.
Christian can easily be summed up as LightSpeed Development’s free-spirited (not malevolent) technology hacker. He defines himself as little bit of nerd with a dash of geek who not only loves all things IT, but is totally committed to the enjoyment and passion for cycling. Christian studied at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology where he enriched his education with Electronic, Computer Systems Engineering and Logic Controllers Programming; through UNISA, he did various courses in Clinical and Biomedical Engineering and currently finishing up LPI certifications to broaden his knowledge.
Iain has been working at LightSpeed since 2010. He specializes in WordPress child theme and plugin development, and his wide range of responsibilities include support, marking up of page templates, custom post types and content, community and forum implementation, mobile development and more.
When we start a build, Iggi builds it. He gets the content in and sets up the theme and plugins. Whether it's a blog, massive publisher space, or a store. With a background in the arts, communication is his skill, he trains our clients and blogs for us regularly, taking care of social media also.
