Senior Software Architect
Robert’s interest in computers was the early-bird ticket that would open up the wonderful world of software architecture to him. After experiencing success with a few home-brew websites in the early days of the Internet, he decided to advance his career by studying at Sheridan. Shortly after graduation and jumping into his first professional role, he realized that he wanted to not only develop, but to design software.
Robert’s leadership of Readyportal’s engineering solutions team rests on 12 years of delivering exceptional solutions for various clients including, SickKids, Mosaic, AT&T, Rogers and Samsung Canada.
Ever since his father introduced him to one of those really old computers, Matthew was hooked. His love for all things computer is only surpassed by his desire to constantly become better. His mantra, “efficiency over everything”, has served Readyportal quite well (we expect him to write a ground breaking book on this in the future). For now though, as back-end engineer, he’s handling logic, communications and procedures on the server side.
Matthew holds a Bachelors of Computer Science from Ryerson University. Outside work, he’s engaged in various slackware related projects, on seadoos and snowmobiles (depending on the season) or playing a game of chess.
As Front End Developer and our resident UX-pert, Feyi uses her keen eye for detail and superior HTML/CSS skills to deliver exceptional online experiences for our clients. Feyi is something of mix between engineer and artist, and wickedly good at creative problem solving too. She says Readyportal has given her a chance to solve real and difficult problems though with how easy she makes it look, that’s hard to believe sometimes.
Feyi graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Degree in Systems Design Engineering. When not at work, she can be found exploring the city or trying new foods for inspiration.
