Malvern Pontius

Software architect/Senior Developer (Java)
   South Africa
  |   Cape Town, Western Cape

Overview

I have 10+ years of experience and work well with people or on my own. My passion for developing software drives me to always succeed when tackling tasks.

I build/design/troubleshoot java-ee or java core applications.

Things I normally try to address when building applications:
robustness.
Quality
Completeness
Clear and concise to make handover and maintenance seamless if required.
I will highlight if one or more of the above will be impacted because of a tight deadline.
I have no problem with working alone or within a team.
