Tim Armitage

Mobile Developer

Mobile development is just one of Tim’s numerous skills but it would take far too much space to list them all so we’ll just leave it at that. In his spare time he likes playing guitar and improving his approximate knowledge of everything.

Carli enjoys learning new skills and seeks to constantly improve herself. A worthy goal for someone who already holds a degree in engineering and an impressive portfolio. When she’s not designing the ultimate user experience, coding applications or out networking, Carli can be found playing netball and beach volleyball.

Erin Benning

Technical Writer

Erin Benning

Technical Writer

Don't talk to Erin before 8.30am. It's not that she dislikes you, she just isn't capable of human speech until she's fully awake. She creates beautiful documents though. When she’s not correcting what everyone says, she’s at the circus defying gravity.

Rhiannon Waller

Operations Manager

Rhiannon Waller

Operations Manager

Rhiannon will help you with any and all of your problems. Don't have any cables? Don't have a desk? Don't work here? No problem is too big for Rhi! While her title is 'Operations Manager', it would be more accurate to call her 'Solarc's Atlas'.
