Let's Meet the Team - Richard Hills

It's been a while since we introduced the infoodle team members - so today, let's spend some time with Richard Hills, our newest addition!

Thursday 18th February 2021


Position within infoodle: Developer

Years working for infoodle: 3 months


Richard started working as a PHP developer in 2000 with a startup called Kiwi Online and has been doing PHP development since. He worked in Holland with an open source company called Drecom from around 2005 to 2010 before returning to New Zealand with his partner Robin.

Richard grew his role within his last workplace (Techwise) to include system administration and DevOps, and we’re now looking to leverage these skills to increase the speed at which we can deliver features for infoodle with continuous integration and deployment practices.

Richard has one son (Gabriel) who takes up a lot of his time but the rest is split between gardening and video games which are his greatest hobby!
