JP Dippenaar


Experienced Backend Developer, Solutions Architect and Lead


I am a skilled developer with broad experience in systems architecture, systems integration, software development and financial markets. I hold a BSc in Computer Science & Mathematics, and I was the first Acquia certified developer (in South Africa). I have extensive experience in low level programming (C/C++) as well as dynamic web development (Drupal, PHP, MySQL, Laravel and Lumen).

Over the course of my career I have designed, implemented and managed a diverse range of projects and products, such as:

  • Leading edge e-commerce.
  • Leading both senior and junior teams.
  • Enterprise-grade CMS
  • Integration with dozens of 3rd party applications and services
  • Various Web front and back-end applications, interfaces, integrations and API’s
  • On-board/embedded applications
  • Real-time tracking and communication via TCP/IP, mobile and Inmarsat-C networks
  • High Performance I/O and Protocol independent communication controller
  • Web-based stock control system
  • Cell-based Location Based Services

For the first 15 years of my career I specialized in C/C++.  Over the last couple of years I have focused on web technologies, languages and frameworks such as PHP, MySQL, Drupal, Laravel, JavaScript, jQuery and Angular. In my spare time I am developing a mobile (iPhone / iPad / AppleTV) application.

My primary skills include systems architecture, systems integration, creative problem solving, robust software, financial markets and mathematics. I am very good at grasping new concepts and technologies. I have an exceptional high work ethic and take great pride in the quality of the work I produce: if it is worth doing, it is worth doing well.

I have a wealth of experience and I am at a point in my life where I need to make a difference and leave some legacy; not only for the company and their clients but also the people in my team.
